Love your pizza with a crisp-chewy crust with the right amount of char on the edges, paired with great-quality toppings? This recently launched delivery-only shop has got your back, with pizzas like the classic Pepperoni (P370), ooey-gooey Cinco Quezo (P470) a.k.a. five-cheese, and the just-pungent-enough Garlic Shrimp (P450). You can also go for their more modern combos like the Bacon Mozza (P390) and Truffle and Cheese (P450); all flavors come with spicy honey for drizzling, plus a balsamic-vinegar mixture for dipping the pizza slice's cornicione into. Go ahead and place your orders through their website; you can also find them on GrabFood if you're near their Pasig location.

American Pie

Over in Detroit, it's all about square or rectangular pizzas with thick, puffy crusts with crisp bottoms and chewy interiors—plus generous toppings piled on in reverse, with the cheese and its friends going before the sauce. This makes it such that some of the cheese spreads toward the edges of the pizza and gets toasty and caramelized as it cooks. Locally, you can get your dose  of Detroit-style pizza from American Pie, who cooks up excellent versions loaded with toppings and are properly crackly-crisp on the bottom and around the edges. There's The Jackson Five (P895) with five meats, five cheeses, cherry tomatoes, and basil; the Motown Truffle Shrooms (P795) with fresh mushrooms, 'nduja sausage, and a truffle cream; the Downtown Five-Cheese (P795) with five cheeses plus roasted garlic and fresh oregano; the The Bad Boys of Detroit (P795) with beef, bacon strips, and caramelized onions; and the Vegan Expedition (P795) with vegan cheese, Beyond Beef, spinach cream, and mushrooms.

Quezon City shop Terra Bomba is known for selling plants, pots, and other gardening finds, but they've also got a line of pizzas with thin, crackly crusts that hold a bounty of toppings in one-of-a-kind combinations. For one, the Cancelini Vegan Pizza (P560) goes creamy yet vibrant and subtly floral with grilled soba pien (a meat alternative), moringa pesto, vegan cheeses, capers, fried bougainvillea flowers, moringa leaves, cashews, and fried garlic. Prefer a pie with Filipino flavors? Try the Alocasia Vegan Pizza (P630) that's got grilled soba tiao (textured vegetable protein), laing, vegan cheeses, fried squash flowers, black olives, and fried garlic. Don't miss the East-meets-West leaning Talinum Sattvik Pizza (P660), either; it's got grilled zucchini, tomatoes, vegan ham, mozzarella and cheddar cheeses, capers, blue ternate flowers, and a creamy ginger sauce to tie everything together.

Polarizing as pineapples on pizza can be, there's something about how fruit contributes a contrasting sweetness and juiciness to savory eats. At QC spot Diner 55, they trade pineapples for peaches in their Yo! Fernando pizza (P450)—a square pie with double-smoked ham, caramelized onions, mozzarella , peach slices, and a balsamico reduction for a savory-sweet union. Other must-try flavors at this diner include the Classic Ronnie (P420), their take on pepperoni; the ooey-gooey Five-Cheesey (P430); and the Latin-esque Hey Jean! Fugazzeta (P435) with piri grilled chicken, arugula, a corn salsa, crispy onions, and aioli.


For orders, contact 7256-4345 or 0917-126-5913. You can also check out Diner 55's Facebook page.
