How long has it been since the last time you ate an authentic handmade pizza?
Well, we don't know about you, but Uncle Wolvie hasn't had it in 17 years :(
Before Focus Pizza was even open, we've already heard about it from our buddies. So after the place was officially open, we went to try it out and... we LOVED it!
Dalian city is crowded with pizza restaurants, and amongst the few that are actually being talked about, Focus Pizza is one of them. But since this restaurant is newly open, its good reputation has raised some questions.
Well, the answer is actually pretty simple.
It's because all of their pizzas are hand-made
Hand Made | 纯手工
The owner of Focus Pizza is an experienced chef. After years of working as a chef, he decided to start his own business and opened this pizza restaurant.
Let's first talk about the ingredients. According to the owner, all the ingredients are carefully sorted and personally picked by him, in order to make the highest-quality pizza with the best taste.
Admit it, you all have done this to your pizza just to see how long the cheese go!
We're told that the whole process of making one pizza requires only 5 minutes; 2 minutes to set up the dough and sprinkle the toppings on it, and 3 to bake the pizza into awesomeness. And... voila! Here comes your freshly baked pizza!
One thing that we noticed, is that the pizzas here are not oily at all, and that is one of the characteristics of an authentic Italian pizza.
Delicious | 好吃
Tastiness is in the tongue of the taster. (Cringe. Cringe. Cringe.)
Ok, just forget the sentence above. Pretend like we never ever wrote it.
Our point is, just because we said that the pizzas are good, doesn't mean that they are. We might love (let we say it again, LOVE) the recommended Sausage Pizza, but it doesn't mean that you'll love it too. You need to come and try it yourself and prove us right (or wrong).
Trust your sense of smell, most of the time it's right!
Since we thought that the pizzas were great, we asked the owner about additives. Surprise, surprise! Not even MSG was added to the pizzas, making them completely safe to be eaten by everyone!
Affordable | 价格实惠
Look at Focus Pizza's menu above! It's the reason we're calling it affordable.
The owner of Focus Pizza thinks that word of mouth is the key to success. Basically, he's selling high-quality products at the lowest price possible. The main goal is to satisfy the customers so they will voluntarily spread the news to others. So, if you went there to eat and were satisfied by its service, go tell your friends about it!

The cups they're using are interesting. Why so Chinese?
