Round and cheesy!

Sunday, March 01, 2020

I'm still in Mexico City, and even though I had already gone to this place, it's been a while since the last time I went. In fact, it's been nearly 6 years since the last time I went, and ever since I've always wanted to go back.

This place holds a special place in my heart because it's one of the first places I went out with my today fiancée, and again, it was she who showed me this place.

The Place

It's called Mama's Pizza, and well, with the name I'm sure you get the idea of what you can eat here.
It has snacks, salads, soups, pasta, and of course a wide variety of pizzas.
This place has only one location, and it's near Plaza Universidad.

They divide their pizza flavours in "classics", such as pepperoni, chorizo, chicken. Then there are "gourmet" pizzas such as bacon, bolognese, ham. "Seafood" pizzas with shrimp and anchovies. "Specialty" pizzas which combine several ingredients, and here you can find the Hawaiian, Mexican, ranchera, tropical. There are also the "taqueras" pizzas with ingredients usually used for tacos, like the pastor pizza, alambre or chicharron. And the "máximas", which I believe are more specialised because of the ingredients.
I just mentioned just a few of the available pizzas in the menu, but there are lots of options, and you can see the whole list on their website.

You can dine-in or take out. The restaurant also offers catering service for events.

Another cool thing about the restaurant is that they give you a white paper tablecloth and a bunch of crayons, so you can draw while you wait for the food to come out.
But it gets better. You can submit your drawing to their social profiles, and every month they run a contest to choose the best picture, the winner gets a free pizza and the honour to put your drawing on the wall.

Let your imagination fly and let your inner artist out. Portray your best possible drawing in the tablecloth and WIN A PIZZA!

If you're not good drawing, like me, you can pass and just admire the ones already hung in the walls. But if you enjoying drawing, why not give it a go? Free pizza is always a good idea.

The Dish

Pizza, of course! But which pizza?
A good thing in this place is that you can choose half and half to try two different flavours. Today we decided half pastor, which comes with carne al pastor, onions, pineapple, and coriander. And half gourmet which comes with sausage, pepper, mushroom and onion.

Trust me, the ingredients are there, beneath all that cheese. In fact, I've never seen so much cheese in any pizza before.
And if that's not enough cheese, you can always ask for the cheese-stuffed crust!

What makes this pizza so good, besides the amount of cheese on it 🤤, is that everything is so fresh, from the vegetables which when you bite them they feel juicy and flavourful. The meats are also cooked to perfection, and at least the pastor meat is perfectly marinated. Even the crust is excellent.

And have I mentioned it has a lot of cheese? Well, it does… in case I didn't say it.

Obviously, all pizzas are hand-made and made from scratch, so it's a guarantee it'll always be good, taken directly from the oven to your table.

There's no way to ruin a pizza, but definitely, there are infinite ways to improve it, and this place does a great job.
