Have you ever tasted something so good that your mouth starts to become watery with the mere thought of getting a taste of it again?
It’s no secret that Filipinos love pizza. And it’s a fact that Pinoys also like to mess with ingredients and experiment with conventional delicacies. That is why we have our own versions of almost every delicious foreign cuisine you can think of, from the Pinoy-style crispy fried chicken, to the different Pinoy renditions of the beloved Italian pizza.
When it comes to Italian-inspired pizza that’s perfectly adapted to the wildly sophisticated Pinoy taste, no franchise does it better than Calda Pizza Philippines. With its own unique fusion of Italian-style pizza and authentic Filipino ingredients, Calda Pizza has captured not just the true essence of the Italian thin crust pizza, but the hearts and stomachs of pizza-loving Filipinos as well.
A Brief History of Calda Pizza Philippines
The first Calda Pizza parlor opened on the 3rd of January 2008 in Barangay Lahug, Cebu City. The brainchild of husband and wife Mr. Bernard and Frances Therese Palang, Calda Pizza was conceptualized with the idea of fusing the classic Italian thin crust pizza with various local flavors to create a truly unique Filipino-Italian pizza. By offering giant-sized pizzas, the founders are also trying to encourage customers to enjoy their lovely creations as a group. Imagine eating a 36-inch pizza with your friends and family; it’ll be like eating food “boodle fight” style. It’s fun and enjoyable!
With its first out-of-town outlet, which opened in Iligan City on the 1st of July 2009, Calda Pizza saw phenomenal success as it slowly became a household name. Over the years, more and more franchises opened nationwide. Today, Calda Pizza has over 60 outlets nationwide, including five in Metro Manila, five in Davao City, and three in Cagayan de Oro.
