For this years’ first recommendation, I present Made On Demand Pizza. MOD Pizza is a fairly new chain founded by the same couple who founded the coffee shops that Starbucks bought. Mod is essentially the Subway of pizzas; however, unlike Subway, MOD uses fresh and often natural ingredients that taste and look great. Their 6” Mini and 11” Mod sized pizzas have an artensianally thin crust, but they also offer a Mega thick-crust version. The pizzas are cooked in a special stone oven complete with open flames. They also have garlic strips, cinnamon strips, and salads.

Just like Subway does, MOD serves their own pizza recipes for classics, such as a BBQ chicken pizza or a Margarita pizza with unique names like “Casper” and “Dillion James”. You can add or substitute any toppings for no extra charge. Customers can also go down the line and customize their own pizzas with unlimited toppings. Price is based on the size of the pie, not the amount of toppings ordered. Their toppings include the classic pepperoni, olives, and bell peppers, as well as roasted corn, roasted broccoli, and Asiago cheese.

MOD also boasts seasonal pizzas and toppings. The Isaac, this season’s specialty pizza, has olive oil, garlic, ricotta cheese, red onion, roasted grape tomatoes, and is finished off with a balsamic vinaigrette and basil.

MOD’s atmosphere is modern, fun, and friendly. Its laid back atmosphere caters to the “Seattle lifestyle”, complete with metal and wood decor and alt rock music playing over the speakers. Each pizza is extremely affordable with their “Mod” size, big enough to feed two people, only costing a cheap $6.97. Even though the restaurant is extremely affordable, their hand-crafted pizzas are arguably rich in quality and taste- for a price that meager, there’s no competitor in flavor or quality.  This is the perfect place for teenagers–cheap, tasty, and modern. Personally, I recommend going to the display of toppings and trying some of the seasonal favorites; or, if you have a sweet tooth, order the cinnamon strips or “The No Name” whoopie pie. I can almost guarantee that Made On Demand will become your new favorite, frequently visited pizza spot!
