MOD Pizza San Antonio: A Fresh Approach to a Neighborhood Pizzeria

MOD Pizza San Antonio: A Fresh Approach to a Neighborhood Pizzeria

Disclosure: I received a gift card to try MOD Pizza San Antonio, but all opinions are my own.

In my family, pizza is tradition. Almost every Friday, custom homemade pies make their way into the oven and we feast on whatever kind of pizza strikes our fancy. My husband and I often enjoy our veggie-and-pepperoni oozing with sauce, and our 7-year-old nibbles his personal favorite: cheese-only, light-on-the-sauce.

Luckily, I recently received an opportunity to try a new pizza joint with the promise that it was an original concept and a different kind of pizza eatery, and as they say, it was an offer I couldn’t refuse. The place? MOD Pizza, a newly opened spot in the Stone Oak area of San Antonio.

My family and decided to head out on a Monday in the early evening, thinking it would be a slower evening and we would have the place to ourselves. Apparently, many families and professionals had the same idea ­– the joint was jumping. Tables were full and there was a line to order. With a starving 2nd grader and an unpredictable 3-month-old, we were a bit worried. After all, good pizza takes time. However, the line moved very quickly and efficiently, and the restaurant’s cool concept is why.

Unlike most pizzerias, MOD builds your pizza in front of you, much like how Subway makes its sandwiches and Chipotle makes it burritos. Patrons pass in front of stations, cafeteria style, and select their sauces, meats, cheese, veggies and other toppings. If you prefer suggestions, the menu is full of different creations you can try. We ordered the Dominic and Dillon James in addition to a kid’s pizza and garlic strips. And, the pros behind the counter build the pie and put it promptly in the oven. As soon as the pizzas were done, our name was called and we could pick up our custom-made pies from the counter. Then, mangia!

We really enjoyed our meal and plan to visit often. Here are three reasons why you should, too:

It’s Picky-Person Friendly: Half cheese, half pepperoni, light red sauce, extra pesto … it’s all possible, and all for the same price (see below). The MOD sized pizzas are a perfect individual-sized pie for teens and adults, and younger ones should be satisfied by the kid’s pizza. This is a real plus for parents of picky kiddos or selective eaters. Everyone can get their own pizza and get exactly what they want. Another plus is that the pizzas are nut free.

It’s Inexpensive: No matter what you top them with, the MOD sized pizzas are $7.87 and the kid-sized pizzas are $4.87. So you can keep the toppings simple or go nuts and the price stays the same. Although the cost was low, the pizzas are tasty and you never feel like you are getting budget pizza.

It’s Quick: We arrived, made our selections, ate, practiced spelling words and were out the door just before the baby got too fussy – for our busy family, this was a win. Other families came straight from sports practice or activities, likely in search of a quick, hearty bite before going home and getting ready for another full day.
