I have a love/hate relationship with pizza. I love it to death but I hate the fat and calories that come with it. I did the ultimate sacrifice by not eating pizza for 1 year and now it’s time to get reacquainted with an old love.
Where else should I celebrate this momentous occasion but in one of the hottest pizza places in Manila? I’ve been reading so much about Nolita’s pizza that I just had to try it. I didn’t even have plans that day but after shopping in S&R I felt my stomach murmuring for some nourishment. Armed with only my iPhone I went to Nolita after the peak lunch hour.
Is there a more perfect food than a slice of pizza? Think about it. A slice of pizza contains all the important food groups. There’s carbs, dairy, protein and veggies. How awesome is that?
The pizzas were around 20″ in diameter and were sold by the slice. Normally I would get the pepperoni without a second thought but I wanted to eat healthier even with pizzas.
I chose the pesto grilled chicken with sun-dried tomato pizza. It was almost a big as the paper plate. I was a 100% sure I wouldn’t be able to finish it since I can only down half a slice of S&R’s pizza and this looked even bigger.

The first bite was pure nirvana. The crust was thin but firm enough to support the weight of the cheese and toppings. It was the best pizza crust I’ve ever eaten bar none. Light, super crisp and not doughy at all. The toppings as good as it were almost seemed secondary. I loved the flavors from the pesto and sun-dried with the creamy cheese.
Just look at the golden brown crust. Perfect!! I’m ashamed to admit I finished the entire slice.
I still had room for a chocolate chip cookie made with semi-sweet chocolate chunks. Not bad at all!!!

When I came home from Italy where I had not so great pizzas and all I could think about was going to Nolita to erase those sad pizza memories. A week after I arrived I went again and got the chicken parmesan pizza. I didn’t like it that much. It was too salty and there was too much chicken. It’s funny in Rome I complained that there wasn’t enough toppings.
Next time I go to Nolita I’m sticking to pizzas with less meat which I enjoy much more. Despite this one not so good pizza I still love Nolita’s pizza and I think it’s the best in Manila so far.
