When you talk about Pizza, there might be no person on earth who doesn’t know what Pizza is. Well I maybe exaggerating a bit, but my point is that Pizza is probably one of the most globally-known type of food in the world. There are quite a few types of Pizza that I have the pleasure to try, such as calzone, thin and crispy new york-style pizza, and a thicker most-consumed version of Pan Pizza, which I personally like the most.
On one occasion several weeks ago, I visited Riau Junction, located on Riau aka L.L.RE. Martadinata street, close to the intersection between Dago street and Merdeka street, for groceries shopping with friends. After we were done with the shopping, we looked for something easy to refuel ourselves and the choice fell on a pizza counter on the front side of the building facing Riau street. It is called Magic Pizza, a Pizza brand created by Yogya group.
The counter might be small, but the selection of menu there was quite extensive. From CYO (Create Your Own) Pizza, to its Signature Pizza and Dessert Pizza and also other side menu such as Toast, Pasta, Panini and Light meals.
Since this is my first time trying Magic Pizza, we experimented with several CYO Pizzas. For the base, we can choose between pan/thin/crispy for Medium size and only pan/thin for Personal size. As for the sauce, we can pick either tomato or barbeque or carbonara. This CYO Pizza which already includes mozzarella cheese and 3 kind of veggies choice is offered at IDR 15k for Personal size and IDR 35k for Medium size. You can always have additional toppings at additional costs.
The visit was soon turned into a pizza party of some kind since we had a whole lot from their menu.
Personal Pan Pizza with tomato base, chicken sausage and pineapple (IDR 15k + 5k) – I always thought that sausage and pineapple would go well together on a pizza bed and I was right. The sweetness of pineapple blended well with the tastiness of the sausage.
Medium Pan Pizza with tomato base and extra cheese (IDR 35k + 8k) – This has always been my all-time favorite in terms of pizza flavor. I like the taste blend of tomato sauce and the cheese on a soft dough of pizza.
If you don’t want the hassle of creating your pizza version, you can also select from their Signature Pizza menu, which includes 8 interesting choices from Veggie Garden Pizza, Pepperoni Pizza, Hawaii Pizza, Margarita Pizza, Carbonara Pizza, Tuna Pizza, Beef Relative Pizza and Cheezy Bite Pizza.
To accompany your pizza fiesta with friends, you can select these sides to share.
At the end of this pizza craze, I came to a conclusion that Magic Pizza serves decent quality pizza at a highly reasonable price. With the many selections offered and the options to create your own pizza, you can explore your own preferences and have your pizza your way. I believe that was the biggest plus point provided by this particular Pizza brand.
If you are in the proximity to any of its outlets, do try and have a fun pizza craze like we do.
