I like living in the south and I get happy every time a good restaurant opens up in the area because it means another couple/family date venue on weekends. Last October 2019, Firehouse Pizza opened its doors to the public. Firehouse Pizza is managed by Crimson Hotel and it’s located in the same building, at the G/F of Entrata Urban Complex in Alabang.
The interior of Firehouse Pizza is modern and dimly lit, which only adds to its upscale ambiance. There’s an Italian-style fire oven in one corner of the restaurant, where the cooks prepare and bake the pizzas upon order. It’s great that as a customer you can literally watch your order being prepared.
Firehouse Pizza has a simple menu: salads, pizzas and drinks. Drinks range from juices and smoothies to alcohols and coffee drinks.
We tasted 3 different plates of salad. My favorite is the Mini Calzone Salad (P370), which has an amazing combination of flavors. It has baby spinach, dried tomato, pesto sauce, and parmesan cheese.
The next is Burrata Salad (P550). This is another must-try. It’s my first time to eat burrata cheese and wow… All I can say is that it can work with anything. This salad has mesculin leaves, garden tomatoes, burrata cheese, and balsamic olive oil.
We also had Panzanella Salad (P280). This is perhaps my least favorite. I just couldn’t get over eating pieces of cold bread in a salad.
Let’s head on to the main course. Aside from getting to see your pizza being made in the open cooking area, what makes the pizza in Firehouse Pizza different is that you can choose among 5 types of mozzarella toppings to add in your pizza: buffalo mozzarella, burrata, bocconcini, fior di latte, and scamorza. The price for each pizza differs depending on what topping you choose.
We had their signature pizza: Firehouse with burrata (P700). If you’re going to order just one pizza in this restaurant, this should be it. It looks and tastes great, and it was fun having to poke and spread out the burrata cheese over the dough.
We also had Margherita with chili bocconchini (P550), Garish Gravlax with buffalo mozzarella (P650), and Pepperoni with scamorza (P500). These are all good choices. As they say, a good pizza starts with a good dough and the dough here is cooked perfectly, the toppings go well together.
If you like good pizza, the pizzas here won’t disappoint.
For dessert, I recommend getting an affogato (P220). This has been one of my favorite dessert after I tried it in Francesco’s Kitchen. The affogato in Firehouse Pizza has a generous serving. You can ask the server to pour the coffee in the ice cream or you can do it yourself. Tip: you have to pour it quickly.
Overall, Firehouse Pizza is a great pizza restaurant and this is a perfect place to bring your friends or family over.
