MOD Pizza Morgan Hill, a review

MOD Pizza just opened in Morgan Hill, CA, on Friday, 5-22-15, located on Cochrane just east of the 101, in the Chili’s/Target/PetCo shopping mall (1031 Cochrane Rd.). We had dropped by on opening night at dinner time, but the place was crazy crowded, in a good way.

It was an amazingly festive atmosphere and despite the chilly weather, people were eating inside and out. But I’m a bit impatient with crowds and lines (the line to order was almost out the door!) so we came back the next day, Saturday, mid-afternoon.

I have never been to a MOD Pizza, nor have I ever heard of it until it opened here in Morgan Hill, and it has a fascinating business practice in how they serve up pizza.

The staff is very friendly and quick to help you out if you have never been to a MOD. But to be honest, despite their cheater choices (meaning you don’t have to pick and choose if you don’t want), it is much easier to point and drool at your chosen toppings.

About those toppings:

There is one basic size, thin crust pizza, but they do offer a smaller personal size and a larger size family pizza if you are of the mind.

What’s fascinating about MOD Pizza is that this basic size pizza has a single cost, and then you pick your toppings and add what  ever you want to it. It does not matter how many toppings you add to it, the cost is the same.

Since I love thin crust (Very thin crust) I added all kinds of goodies to my pizza and I enjoyed it. And for a quickie lunch or early dinner the cost for our two pizzas and drinks was about $20, which is much cheaper than a lunch for two next door at Chili’s.

If you love thin crust pizza, and love the idea of going nuts about toppings, you will probably love MOD Pizza.

I’ve met the boss and she’s a great lady to chat with. The atmosphere is pretty fun, but if you aren’t fond of lines or crowds, you might want to show up early to skip them.

Oh, and they also have sides and salads.  MENU:

Here’s the Morgan Hill MOD Pizza web site.

Did you know that MOD Pizza started up in 2008 in Seattle ()? And is now a fast growing, national chain, being “one of the “Top 50 Breakout Brands” as ranked by Nation’s Restaurant News in 2013 and named one of the “Fastest Growing Private Companies in America” by Inc. Magazine.” {link}
