    The Concept of Project Pie is that you will stand in line a the ordering counter and there are nine pre-designed pizzas of which you can order or you can make your own using the 35 different toppings available to make your own pizza. these toppings range from different cheeses to different cuts of meat and seafood and veggies and also fruit and chocolate and caramel items as you can make a dessert if you want. after getting your choice, the premade dough is mechanically flattened and brushed with either tomato sauce or olive oil (or chocolate or caramel is making a dessert pizza) and the 12 inch pizzas bake at 427 degrees celsius (800 degrees fahrenheit) in a custom gas-powered oven for about 4 minutes and then you pay at the counter and then bon apettito!

    Amici: Homestyle Italian Restaurant and Gelato

    by machomikemd Updated Aug 9, 2014

    Amici is an Italian Homestyle Restaurant with several Branches around the Country. It started as a canteen in Don Bosco School in Makati City where it was run by the Italian Salesian Priest and they would make their homestyle Italian meals an gelato to the students and the school employees.. The Canteen and the concept was then bought a by local businessman and this Italian Restaurant Cum Gelato Stand is now becoming renown in the Metro Manila Area and they now have 8 branches around the Capital Region and this is their branch at the Alabang town center.

    Opens: 10:00 am to 9:00 pm everyday

    according to their website:

    In June of 1994, Fr Gianluigi Colombo, a Salesian Italian priest in charge of overseeing the operations of the Don Bosco Printing Press, was given permission by Don Bosco management to set up a “canteen” to support its employees. Fr Colombo made the request to address the concern of its employees not having access to good food during lunch break. The employees not only got good food to satisfy their hunger but authentic, freshly-made Italian dishes in a “turo-turo” setting. The friendly, familiar atmosphere made the foreign dishes that were new to their palette, less intimidating and phenomenal beyond anything they had ever tasted before.

    Starting with Italian coffee and gelato, the canteen eventually introduced wood-fire oven baked pizzas and homemade pasta. Fr Colombo’s kitchen eventually became a taste of heaven where tired and weary “souls” found comfort. By June 2001, Amici di Don Bosco (Friends of Don Bosco) was legally established as a business entity to also serve the needs of students studying in Don Bosco. The “turo-turo” was now known to many as a self-service canteen and eventually opened its doors to a broader market. However, it wasn’t the requirements of the printing press nor of the students of Don Bosco alone that kept Amici di Don Bosco’s stove burning. News of great Italian cuisine prepared and served by priests and “ordinary people” inside a canteen spread like wildfire, attracting patrons from all over Metro Manila. From humble beginnings, the printing press cafe became known for authentic Italian pizza, pasta, and gelato.

    Favorite Dish: Besides having wonderful freshly made Italian Gelatos of different flavors (60 to 90 pesos a scoop), they also have a specially made wood fired oven on which to cook the fresh ciabatta, panini, foccacia and other italian breads (some are complimentary with the olive oil dip and balsamic vinegar). Pasta Dishes like Tartufo Funghi pasta (with truffle oil) cost 290 pesos an order. freshly baked thin crust pizza's like quattro formaggi at 380 pesos an order. Lasagna at 320 pesos an order.
