Mama Mia Pizza @ Chatz Brasserie, PARKROYAL

I like pizza but how about customize own pizza? I was surprised that Chatz Brasserie's Mama Mia Pizza allows diners to customize their very own pizzas in the restaurant.

我喜欢吃比萨但自制比萨又如何呢?我很惊讶Chatz Brasserie 餐厅提供的Mama Mia比萨竟可以让用餐者去定制自己想要的口味比萨。

Chatz Brasserie has an open kitchen. We had a sneak peek when the chefs were making our pizzas.

Chatz Brasserie有个开放式的厨房。我们可以在这窥视厨师们制作比萨时的模样。

Have a look at the ingredients from the sea:

They looked fresh!

Another side of the table placed the breads, butter, soup and salads!


Variety of breads

I was told all the butters were home made!


At each table, there was a few pieces of order forms. Take a look at it> variety choice of toppings and each divided into different categories such as From the Sea, From the Land, From the Farm, From the Dairy, From the Garden and sauces! For RM49 nett, we got as many customized pizza as we want, salad bar and soup! 

For beverage, it is only RM3 add on for free flow of Coke or Sprite. RM10 for a glass of draft beer and RM35 for a jug of draft beer.


饮料方面,只需要RM3便可以任加Coke 或者Sprite,RM10一杯扎啤酒以及RM35一壶扎啤酒。

I took a cup of mushroom from the bar table. We can take as many as we want with no extra charges.


Chefs were working out our orders!


There are Mozzarella, Parmesan, Cheddar, Gouda, Emmental and Blue Cheese! Well, we don't get all these kind of block cheese in hypermarket!


Whenever I thought of customized pizza, it must be our home made pizza. Buying all the ingredients from hypermarket, washing and cleaning all the ingredients, cutting and chopping them and etc before putting inside a heated oven. How much time we spent in making all these? Moreover what if you are eating alone? For me, I'm not willing to keep myself that busy preparing all these when I'm eating alone, just go out and settle.

For a large pizza 12'', it is RM 32.80 and RM 4.50 for extra topping, excluded the 6% gov tax and 10% service charge in one of the famous pizza franchise outlet! Total all up is RM43.27. (The bill does not vary much from RM49 Mama Mia Pizza) Well, I would rather spend extra RM5.73 for eat-all-you-can customized Mama Mia pizza and a complimentary take-home pizza in Chatz Brasserie, PARKROYAL!


在其中一间著名的比萨连锁店,一个12"的大比萨价钱是RM32.80, 加配料的话,必须加RM4.50,这还不包括6% 的政府税务和10%的服务费。当全部加起来的时候,一共是RM43.27。(这单的价钱跟Mama Mia 比萨的RM49标价差不远)。我宁愿花多RM5.73去吃到饱的自定制Mama Mia比萨和可带回一盒免费比萨的Chatz Brasserie, PARKROYAL!

This was how it looked like....made using all the ingredients I ticked in the order form. I know it looked weird but hey it did not taste bad!


Other customized Mama Mia pizza by my friend


All looked different because of the different toppings selection


Eventually I had my own Mama Mia fruit pizza! Honestly, it didn't taste like pizza but more like a birthday cake. It is a very fun concept. We can played around with the ingredients and excited to see the outcome like how it tasted and how it looked like.

For those of you who also like to try having own customized pizza, please come to Chatz Brasserie every Thursday from 6 to 10 pm. It is only priced at RM49 nett inclusive of salad bar and soup. On your way out, you can take home a pizza of your choice with compliments from Chatz Brasserie, PARKROYAL.

最终我有自定制的Mama Mia 水果比萨!老实说,这吃起来不像比萨反而像生日蛋糕。不过这是很有趣的概念。我们可以去自由选择想要的材料以及非常兴奋期待那结果看起来和吃起来如何。

若你们也很喜欢尝试自定制比萨,可以在每逢星期四晚上6到10点期间到Chatz Brasserie。净价是RM49一人包括沙拉和汤。临走前,我们还可以带自己喜欢口味的比萨回家,这都是Chatz Brasserie, PARKROYAL免费提供的哦
