This past weekend MOD Pizza opened up it’s first location in San Antonio and we went to try it out. The first location is located in north San Antonio off of 281 near Stone Oak. They also have two more locations coming soon.
When we walked into MOD Connor said, “I know why it’s called MOD Pizza; it’s because you can make it the way you want it.” At MOD you can create your pizza anyway you like with unlimited toppings for one price. We’ve been to other pizza places with a similar concept but what I really like about MOD was that they offer more than one size. You can get a mini, mod, or a mega pizza. You can even get any of those sizes as a salad instead of a pizza.
What we decided to do was order several mini pizzas to share along with garlic strips. They have a pizza menu of classics that you can try or you can build your own. We started off with 2 build your own pizzas and 2 classics.
To order your pizza, you get in line and tell them what size you want and whether you are building your own or getting a classic. They have all the toppings laid out and make the pizzas in front of you.
After ordering your pizzas they go into the pizza oven which cooks them super fast.
The seating area is a mix of taller tables with stools and regular tables. We started off at one of the taller tables but Connor wasn’t a fan of the stools, he wanted his chair to have a back, so we moved to a different table. There is also a patio outside with a few tables.
Now let’s move on to the pizza!
My favorite pizza was the Dillon James. It had a great flavor and I like the fact that these are nice thin pizzas. I also loved the garlic strips; they were delicious. The boys didn’t care for the pepperoni pizza with the white sauce so they decided to go build another pizza.
This pizza was better than the other pepperoni we got. We thought that the white sauce wasn’t as flavorful as the red sauce.
Connor loved these. He’s a big fan of cinnamon and they were good.
Besides pizza, salad, garlic strips, and cinnamon strips, MOD also has milkshakes. We didn’t order one but they have them so that might be something to try next time.
