A few weeks ago, the girls and myself had an opportunity to try MOD Pizza on Morse Road. This is the 3rd location of MOD Pizza in Columbus. It’s a chain that started out of Seattle and now has over 200 locations! (Did you know that they had MOD Pizza in England??) MOD Pizza is a fast casual restaurant ready to serve you pizza, salad and even milkshakes!
All pizzas and salads are $7.87 and you can also get a mini pizza too! In addition to fountain drinks, they offer house-made iced teas and beer/wine!
Prior to the grand opening, we were invited to sample the pizza. When we arrived we were given a tour of the operations and then they asked us if we wanted to make our own pizzas! We got to see the dough press machine that they used to make the dough thin and flat. (machine is comes from Italy!) After the dough is pressed, then the a roll with spikes (I call it the “holey roller”) on it makes tiny holes. The holes help to cook the dough evenly in the 700+ degree oven.
The girls put on some gloves, selected their sauce and of course they chose the red sauce! My youngest just made a cheese pizza while my other daughter did a cheese pizza with onions. I chose an olive oil, mozzarella cheese, mushrooms, onions and arugula!
Then we got to watch our pizzas cook in the oven!
Our pizzas were ready within 7 minutes! I really enjoyed the thin crust style of pizza. (It’s very light and airy; not heavy!) The 10″ mod pizza is a good size portion for one (go hungry!) but you can take your leftovers back home with you in a pizza box! We also got to sample some chocolate and strawberry shakes which both of my girls loved!
For families, I liked the fact that they offered mini mod pizzas too because we all know that little kids would have trouble finishing off a 10″ MOD pizza! Also, often times when you are with your family, you want to order something of your own rather than just eating cheese pizza!
Finally, you can get a MOD sticker and put it in a selected area and leave your mark. (I think that is more exciting for a kid to do this than an adult!)
MOD Pizza is a great place for fresh salads and pizza so head there soon!
