MOD Pizza: Creating Delicious Custom Pizzas...and Salads!! #WeekendGourmetDinesOut #MODPizza #makeityourown #pizza #salad

The Weekend Gourmet team recently visited a MOD Pizza location here in San Antonio to create a signature individual artisan-style pizza...and a delicious entree salad. If you're not familiar with MOD Pizza, they offer more than 40 creative pizza and salad toppings. Even better? You pick as many toppings as you want for one set priceThat means there are endless options to create whatever flavor profile you're craving every time you visit! It's really fun to go through the line and assemble your individual pizza or salad. Whether you prefer traditional toppings...or you crave more over-the-top creative can assemble your personal masterpiece!
Your first step is to pick your crust -- including 6" mini, 11" thin or thick, gluten-friendly, and cauliflower. Then choose from seven different sauces to top your crust. The final step is to top your pizza with cheese(s) and other toppings. The friendly MOD Pizza staff will assemble your pizza in front of you as you make your way down the lineup. 

The Weekend Gourmet's custom pizza started with a thin 11" crust, creamy white sauce, mozzarella, salami, mild sausage, spicy chicken sausage, spinach, artichoke hearts, fresh garlic, and black olives (on half).

Once your pizza is topped, it heads to a screaming hot 800℉ stone pizza oven ... where it bakes to perfection in 3-4 minutes. Once your pizza creation come out of the oven, it can be drizzled with one of eight finishing sauces. We opted for pesto and spicy sri-rancha cups on the side for dipping instead. 

I personally love that MOD also offers a healthy create-your-own salad option! I eat a lot fewer carbs these days, so salads are a staple of my daily eating plan. I was able to craft a delicious healthy salad.

My Greek-inspired salad included chopped Romaine, feta, red onion, cucumber, diced tomatoes, Canadian bacon, and diced grilled chicken. I drizzled my salad creation with their deliciously unique Greek Herb & Tahini Dressing. So good!

It was incredibly easy for us to create a pizza AND a salad...which was a perfect lunch combo for two people. I enjoyed a slice or two of the pizza, and she enjoyed a portion of my salad. The best part? We BOTH left feeling full and happy! 

Don't feel like creating a personalized pizza? No problem! MOD offers several curated MOD Classics that feature traditional pizza (and salad) combinations. For example: the Mad Dog is a meaty MOD Classic that features mozzarella, pepperoni, mild sausage, ground beef, and red sauce. 

The perfect sweet ending to your meal is with one of MOD's cream-filled No Name Cakes. They come in their signature chocolate...and seasonal strawberry....flavors. 

MOD Pizza was founded in Seattle in 2008. There are more than 500 locations across the country. To find a location near you to create YOUR pizza or salad masterpiece, check out their handy online Location Finder feature.
