Discovering a ‘community pizza company’ with Hunter’s Pizza

Aside from “We make it fresh,” the tagline of this pizza company is accompanied with “Ang pinakasulit na pizza.” Checking the prices – and comparing these to the likes of pizza giants Shakey’s and Pizza Hut – both claims have merit. But is Hunter’s Pizza worth checking out?

Aside from “We make it fresh,” the tagline of this pizza company is accompanied with “Ang pinakasulit na pizza.” Checking the prices – and comparing these to the likes of pizza giants Shakey’s and Pizza Hut – both claims have merit. But curiosity on the veracity of these claims were actually what drove us to check out Hunter’s Pizza.

To contextualize, this a franchise company, with over five branches already. For the taste test, the branch called was the one in Solchuaga St. corner Pasong Tirad, Barangay Tejeros, Makati City.

The pizza company doesn’t advertise in mainstream media; instead, it is active in online GCs (group chats) of various communities. There, the viewers are given photo info of the available goods for the day. These often include pizzas with: Triple Cheese (P129); Chicken & Mushroom (P109); Cream Cheese (P129); Cheese (P100); White (P105); Ham & Cheese (P105); Pepperoni (P109); Bacon (P109); New York (P129); and Sausage (P109).

We tried Triple White (another version of 3-cheese pizza, sans the company’s pizza sauce, selling for P129); Hawaiian (P109); and Supreme (P129).

To start, PM’ing the company was easy. At least the branch tapped emailed immediately, providing the needed additional information – e.g. Are the pizzas freshly baked? Yes, we were told. The dough used is freshly-made? Yes, we were told, too. Do they have delivery fee? For nearby places, no; but for somewhat distant places, add P20.

As soon as ordering was made, the goods were immediately prepped. At least that’s what we were told.

And this may be true since the pizzas arrived less than 40 after ordering. A driver who claimed to be related to the owner delivered the pizza; he was courteous… typical delivery.

Now, to the taste test…

Taste-wise, the pizza wasn’t bad at all.

Triple White was, indeed, cheesy. For the photoshoot, when pulling out slices, the cheese melted, leaving that… mouth-watering elongated cheesy trail.

Hawaiian was, generally, so-so; you can immediately tell when you’d notice there were just a few slices of pineapple chunks.

The Supreme was the tastiest; it had enough meat and veggie toppings to make it, truly, supreme-y (similar to those offered by pizza giants).

Here’s the one BIG issue I have, though: the pizza dough used in all the company’s offerings didn’t taste pizza-like. They’re more like… bread-like. So that if you’re extremely picky, these pizzas may actually taste more like bread with toppings. I know that this is a definite no-no for many; so this should be stressed. If it’s any consolation, this isn’t one of those frozen-then-heated-when-ordered type of pizza; meaning, it can justify its taglines…

The pizzas do not sell for much, so supporting this community pizza company doesn’t break the bank. Just temper your expectations and you’d get something that should, at least, satisfy your pizza craving…
