MOD Pizza, Metrocentre

Recently Simon and I became Odeon Limitless members which has resulted in us spending a fair bit of time in the Metrocentre on the hunt for pre-movie food. Usually feeling very hungry but in a rush, MOD Pizza is a great discovery perfect for our cinema dates.

MOD Pizza is a pretty new addition to the Metrocentre and has joined a huge amount of restaurant openings in the mall. Founded in Seattle, MOD specialise in super fast pizza at purse friendly prices to suit the busy modern family.

As Simon and I walked in to discover a counter spilling with toppings, we realised pretty quickly that MOD Pizza is a pizza lover's paradise allowing us the freedom to create whatever pizza we fancied. I don't know about you but it's not often I find my perfect combination of toppings and I was excited at the thought of playing pizza chef!

Unfortunately, my favourite pizza topping was missing from the counter! No egg! I love egg on a pizza, it's always been my guilty pleasure so I was a little disappointed. There are, however, 34 other toppings available so I got over it pretty quickly and set to work creating my own special pizza.

Pizzas at MOD Pizza come in three sizes; mini (£4.47), mod (£7.47) and mega (£10.47) - the price always stays the same no matter how many toppings you pile on. Simon and I both decided to order a mod each - they were huge and left me wondering how on earth anyone could ever fit in a mega!

I have pretty simple tastes when it comes to pizza so didn't go too crazy with the toppings. I can't really say the same for Simon though, every time I looked back at him he was piling more on to his base.  I opted for a BBQ base then added plenty of cheese, mushrooms, mild sausage, red onion and Mozzarella - so delicious!

Our pizzas arrived at our table within 5 minutes, piping hot and covered in toppings. You know that a pizza looks amazing when your husband starts taking photos for Instagram, usually it's me messing about taking photos! I think you'll agree that they look damn good, and believe me they tasted as good as they look.

On the side we ordered a Garlic Strip and Dip (£2.47) which we weren't overly fussed about - I much prefer proper thick and chunky garlic bread and this was a little average in comparison. Neither of us liked the cheesy topping and it was a little on the salty side. We'll definitely stick to just ordering pizza on our next visit.

Because we were feeling super naughty we also decided to have a milkshake each!  It was a moment of weakness, the milkshake options were just too tempting for us to resist.  Milkshakes come in three classic flavours - chocolate, vanilla and strawberry (£3.47) and we decided to add some "mix ins", I went for the Cappuccino Crunch.

Don't ask me how we managed to fit it in but to end our meal we indulged in some Cinnamon Strips (£2.47) which came with a choice of chocolate or strawberry dip. They were so delicious but pretty hard to squeeze into our bellies after eating so much pizza.

We loved our first visit to MOD Pizza and will definitely be returning next time we want to grab a quick bite whilst out shopping. I don't think we'd order that mammoth amount of food again though, we've both agreed that a pizza to share would be more than enough for a lunchtime treat.

Let me know if you've made it to MOD yet and what your favourite pizza toppings are.

We received a complementary meal for review purposes. All thoughts and opinions are our own.

  3. Egg on Pizza? I've never tried that before. Well as I absolutely love pizza so I will most certainly be giving this ago.
