Mod Pizza, Austin, TX

What do you get when you cross a pizza place with the customizability of a sub shop like Subway? You get a place called Mod Pizza. Ironically, the Mod Pizza we visited was actually right next to a Subway.

When walking up, you could see the place was popular just by the line.

I tried to hop on the wifi, but saw they didn’t have any.

That really didn’t matter because I kept looking around and thinking about how I wanted to customize my pizza.

I just decided to get the most bang for my buck and get what I call the “cheap bastard” pizza. I told them to put everything on the pizza. The cheap bastard part of it comes from when we’d bowfish in Illinois. We’d go to Subway and I told them to put everything on my sub. My buddy jokingly called me a cheap bastard trying to get the most for my money. I guess that’s exactly what I was looking to do. The pizza looked huge after they were done putting everything on it. I found out they got at least one cheap bastard a day who did the same thing, so I guess I wasn’t alone.

After we paid, they threw the pizza in the oven and then we wandered over to a seat. I knew it was going to be a bit to fully cook my cheap bastard pizza.

I was only able to eat 2 slices of my cheap bastard pizza. Surprising, even with all the different things in it, the only real overpowering ingredient was the anchovies. The pizza turned out pretty good!

Since I couldn’t eat it all, I got a box. This would definitely be another meal or two!

On our way out, I saw that they had both a recycle bin and a compost bin. It’s good seeing a company that cares about the environment!

I do like the concept of Mod Pizza. Being able to really customize a personal pizza just like you would a sub. It’s definitely a unique concept that I haven’t seen elsewhere. Next time I might opt to get something a little less excessive than my cheap bastard pizza, but even if I get that again I know it will turn out really good!
