Steveston Pizza

Steveston Pizza - 12- Black Pizza P649 2
PIZZA!!! I told you I was craving for pizza. Don’t worry this is my last pizza post for a while. I think I’m cured of my pizza cravings (cross my fingers).

I bet you’ve passed by this small, unassuming storefront along Tomas Morato without realizing Steveston Pizza is a popular and widely acclaimed branch from Richmond, B.C. I wouldn’t have stopped if Foursquare and Foodspotting didn’t suggest it to me when I was looking for pizza in the Quezon City area.

Steveston Pizza shared the same building with these establishments.

The kitchen and pizza oven was right at the entrance.

They used imported disposable tableware which I hoped was biodegradable.

There were many, many pizzas I wanted to order. I wanted a pizza with healthier toppings so my choices were Margarite Zero, Black or Japanese. Their menu was a very abbreviated version of the Canadian menu but I think they chose well for Manila’s taste. Would you try their C pizza for P1,299? All the pizzas come in one size only.

I chose the Black pizza which had a blend of honey glazed chicken breast, fig, gorgonzola & mascarpone mousse, walnuts and arugula julienne. I wasn’t too excited to have chicken on my pizza but the rest of the ingredients really piqued my curiosity since I’ve never encountered those ingredients in pizzas in Manila.

The first layer was a smear of tomato sauce which was topped with a generous quantity of cubed chicken breast. On the 1st picture on the right you can see the container of fig, gorgonzola & mascarpone mousse. After adding lots of mozzarella cheese a drizzle of honey was added. The pizza was then baked and topped with freshly toasted walnuts and arugula. A tiny ball of bocconcini (mozzarella ball) in the center completed the Black pizza.

I wasn’t blown away when I took my first bite. The chicken was very bland but I really liked the crust. It wasn’t too thin or too thick and it was very crunchy. I actually finished the whole slice without leaving the edge of the crust which I always do. It was until my third slice of pizza that I tasted the fig, gorgonzola & mascarpone mousse. That was really, really good but I wish there was more of it.

A big plus was the almost oil free pizza. I didn’t have to use a napkin to blot the top or bottom of the pizza. I hardly even needed a napkin to wipe my hands after. Maybe my choice of toppings was boring but overall I liked their pizza and will definitely try the other combinations again.

I managed to eat 4 slices of the 12” pizza before I gave up and had it boxed to go. Guess what? The flavors seemed to age the next day and it tasted much better. The chicken had more flavor and the cheese was tastier. I ate almost the whole pizza myself in two days and I encountered the fig, gorgonzola & mascarpone mousse only twice. That depressed me.

Any other pizzas I should try? I was planning to try Brooklyn Pizza along Tomas Morato but I chose Steveston Pizza first.
