What it is – Pizza Factory is a small pizza joint, which serves crunchy, crispy, and wood- oven baked pizzas at after work hours. Every ingredient, with the exception of Italian mozzarella and salami, is acquired from local markets for the freshness and homey spirits they can bring. The sauces, the dough, and the ingredients are prepared on a daily basis and everything culminated in fresh pizzas made in the wooden oven, located just in front of the shop. Based on the philosophy of “by hands and not by the grams”, the two Burmese chefs (who were thoroughly trained by a disciplined traditional Italian pizza maker) are wholeheartedly persevering to maintain delicious consistency for their homemade taste.

Atmosphere – You can expect a warm ambiance, made by the smell of baked pizza, to met you at the doorstep of the shop. Since the shop just opened recently, the lack of the crowd also provided an intimate atmosphere. A bar is located in the middle of the shop, and the bartender of the shop serves various drinks as well as a cheerful smile. This is more of a restaurant than a pizzeria, with friendly staff who take your order at the table.

Recommendation – There are seven types of pizza, but the highlight of our visit has to be Pizza Regina and Pizza Factory Signature (Both about 12,000K). First of all, nothing beats the smell of the wooden oven on the pizza. Second of all, the pizzas are neither unnecessarily greasy nor unappetizingly oily, they are careful to not serve dripping slices. Now, the marvel started with the first bite of the crunchy crust of Pizza Regina. Mushy mushrooms and chewy capsicum happened to mix in during the second bite. A spread of Pesto sauce (crushed basil leaf and olive oil) jumps into your mouth to make a playful swirl with ham and bacon. Pizza signature definitely lives up to its name as it offers a certain kind of comfort that can only be found at our homes. A simple mix of eggplant, olives, and bacon, merging with crispy crust and the fragrance of wooden oven, makes pizza that tastes fresh and made by familiar hands. At last, you can always order various types of juice or a cup of Myanmar draft beer to wash it all down.

Final Thoughts – This place definitely is a haven for people who want authentic homemade pizza with consistent taste and feel. According to the staff, the shop can get crowded if there is an event nearby, and it is closed on Sunday. The shop has fewer customers on the days weekdays with no concerts or conventions in the area. So, the intimate atmosphere of the shop can surely provide a nice pizza and beer date with your significant other.
