There’s nothing pizza can’t cure: be it a bad day at work, a lost basketball game, or a heartbreak. But it’s also the first thing we look for when we want to celebrate. Thank heavens there’s a new pizza place in town ready to cater to our much-needed pie fix: Crosta Pizzeria in The Social on Ebro, Poblacion, Makati.
Crosta literally means “crust” in Italian because doughhh, it’s all about the crust. And Crosta takes pride in its dough, fermented for 48 hours, giving it a light, airy, yet tasty end product you won’t stop munching on. Crosta does not identify itself with a certain style, not exactly Neapolitan, not exactly fast-food style — just really a league of its own. And we definitely agree.
Now let’s get to the stars of the show! Perfectly cooked in brick ovens, their pizzas come in mouth-watering, well-thought-out flavors.
Shroomed Out is a winner: Shiitake, Portobello, and white button mushrooms on a bed of Taleggio, Fontina, and Parmesan cheese.
It goes without saying that The Basic Bitch is a must-try: homemade pizza sauce, Mozzarella cheese, and basil leaves.
For all cheese lovers, it’s definitely Cheesy AF for you: pizza dough smothered with Mozzarella, Fontina, Taleggio, Parmesan, and Goat cheese.
The carnivore in you will be happy with Pork You: bite after bite of bacon, homemade fennel sausage, pancetta, and salami with their homemade sauce and Mozzarella.
Everyone’s favorite comfort food has finally found its new home in Makati. And how fitting it is to be inside The Social, Poblacion’s first open food park. A cold beer in between pizza bites is never a bad idea after all. So if you want to feel better, just remember: in pizza, we crust. Or shall we say it again: in pizza, we Crosta.
