Ready to dig in? Check out some of our fave pizza destinations here:
MOTORINO PIZZERIA NAPOLETANA
Motorino has over 20 flavors of brick-oven-style pizza to choose from. You can take your pick from the usuals like Classic Cheese (P435) and Margherita (P490). If you’re looking for a flavor bomb, the Truffle Honey & Four Cheese (P610) pizza—which brings together the earthy flavor of truffle and the delightful creaminess of cheese—is a must-try.
Amici has come a long way from setting up shop in a school’s canteen and initially serving Italian coffee and gelato. Now, it’s a go-to for wood-fire oven-baked pizzas, like the Al Quattro Formaggi (P460), which has mozzarella, cream cheese, parmesan, and bleu cheese with honey served on the side; and the Chicken Pesto Pizza (P405), where you can get pesto, bechamel, mozzarella, and roasted chicken strips in one flavorful bite.
Like your pizza thick? Head over to Sbarro and order a slice of the hefty Chicago Everything (P219/slice; P1,669/whole), a ragu sauce-based deep-dish pizza loaded with mozzarella and parmesan cheese, pepperoni, Italian sausage, red and green peppers, white onions, and roasted mushrooms. Have your slice topped with pizza sauce or cheesy ricotta sauce for an indulgent meal! Plus, don’t miss Sbarro’s buy-one-take-one deal on Pepperoni Pizza for P599 available until March 31, 2022!

A VENETO PIZZERIA
A Veneto Pizzeria is known for its generous servings, so keep that in mind the next time you plan to throw a pizza party at home! Some flavors to try include the New England’s Best (starts at P400), with ground beef, pepperoni, mushrooms, onions, bell pepper, and sausage; and their Mexican-meets-Italian Taco Pizza (starts at P355), with ground beef, tomatoes, and onions.
If you want to try different flavors in one go, Yellow Cab’s Four Seasons Original (starts at P735) is right up your alley—you can get slices of Pepperoni, Roasted Garlic & Shrimp, Anchovy Lovers, and #4 Cheese in one pizza! But if you’re after a different way to enjoy pizza, check out their Dear Darla line (starts at P420). A Dear Darla pizza has a thinner crust and is served sliced into strips. You just have to add arugula and alfalfa sprouts on top of your pizza, drizzle some chili oil, and roll it up.
S&R NEW YORK STYLE PIZZA
S&R New York Style Pizza’s got a following beyond its supermarket outposts; no wonder the store eventually opened standalone branches in other areas. Order their 18-inch pizzas and round up the fam with fan favorites such as the Combo (P109/slice; P629/whole) and Cream Cheese Pepperoni (P109/slice; P629/whole).
PizzaExpress boasts a mix of classic flavors, pizzas inspired by various dishes, as well as vegetarian and vegan options. Sisig lovers shouldn’t miss the Pork Sisig (P680), which has all the ingredients you’d find in the well-loved dish: fried crispy pork, soy sauce, calamansi, mayonnaise, and egg, plus bechamel and mozzarella. There are also familiar flavors like Hawaiian (P605) with sweet pineapple chutney, and Carbonara (P545) topped with a sunny-side-up egg.
Cibo’s spinach dip is such a crowd favorite that the restaurant just had to put it on pizza. The creamy Pizza Spinaci Zola (P595) highlights the spinach dip with gorgonzola and mozzarella in an oval-shaped, chewy dough. Other flavors worth checking out include Pizza Prosciutto Crudo, which has parma ham, arugula, mozzarella, and parmesan cheese, and Pizza Napoletana (P565), which comes with olives, capers, and anchovies for a briny bite.
