Hot Pizza @ Tanjung Malim, Perak

Craving for some pizza? Why not try something different instead of the usual chains. Hot Pizza is one of it's kind pizza that is located along Jalan U1, Taman Universiti, Tanjung Malim. Typically it is another franchise as well but they operate from a stall. I believe they have a number of stalls located throughout Malaysia and this one is the most recent one that has been opened. Calling themnselves Pizza Jalanan or Street Pizza, they have slowly started to build a good customer base here in Tanjung Malim. 

The Stall In Taman Universiti

Their Menu
Despite being a rainy day, there were so many customers that were waiting for their orders. Being just a stall, most people tend to do takeaways. However, there are some tables in the open if you wish to have it there. Since it was a rainy day, it was all takeaways. As far as the variety is concerned, they have six variety of pizzas and they are Mixed Pizza, Chicken Pizza, Beef Pizza, Seafood Pizza, Chicken Pepperoni Pizza and Beef Pepperoni Pizza and they come in three sizes; small, regular and family size. It's also great that they have listed the ingredients of each and every pizza on their menu. This is helpful for people like me who do not consume beef. 

Beautiful Cartons
What impressed me further was their carton boxes. I thought they would typically have a very simple packaging but no, they had these lovely pizza cartons for each pizza size. That's really taking this street pizza to the next level. Practically, it was the entire family that was playing a role at this stall. The son was looking after the oven and yes, they actually had a gas oven there. The daughters were making the pizza's themselves, carefully placing the ingredients based on their training. And the best part was that hygiene was optimum. I have not seen such hygiene being practiced even in some of those famous pizza chains in Malaysia. Very impressive! The parents were handling the packaging and the cash. Typically that kept the entire family busy. Another thing that I had thought initially was that they would be using some frozen pizzas and no, each item was made from scratch and that's amazing for a street cart business. It guarantees that you get fresh pizza's but on the flip side, the waiting time can be around 20 minutes. I felt that that was worth the wait. 

Chicken Pepperoni Pizza (Regular) @ RM 12.90
Before speaking on the pizza's itself, I must say that I was very pleased with the pizza sizes. The small was slightly smaller than the personal pizza that you get at the famous chains. The regular was exactly the same and the family pizza was really huge. It was as big as the extra large that you get in those famous pizza chains. So, it's surely worth every penny. Coming back to their pizza, this Chicken Pepperoni Pizza looked and tasted really great. The ingredients were Chicken Pepperoni, Chicken chunks, Cheese, Pineapples, Onions, Mushrooms, Oregano and Capsicum, and it was so good. You could actually taste the chicken chunks and chicken pepperoni unlike the ones that you get at those big names. And look at the amount of cheese used, and this wasn't even the extra cheese version which is available as well. Extremely happy with this one and I would rate this at 9/10. 

Seafood Pizza (Regular) @ RM 11.90
Their Seafood Pizza was another extremely good one. The topping comprises of Tuna, Crabstick, Cheese, Pineapples, Onions, Mushrooms, Capsicum and Oregano. With each bite, you could taste a thick layer of tuna at the base. The crabstick and pineapples truly lifted the taste and that extra topping complimented so well with the base ingredients. Truly an awesome one and I would give this a 9/10. 

Chicken Pizza (Small) @ RM 5.90
Compared to the other two, this Chicken Pizza was a little more simple. Made with Chicken chunks, Pineapples, Onions, Mushrooms, Cheese, Capsicum and Oregano, this would be ideal for one who prefers a pizza that's a little less in calories. Despite being limited ingredients wise, it still did taste good and just like the earlier ones, you could actually taste the chicken meat. This, I would rate it at 8/10. 

Overall, I am very happy with this place. The pizza's were great, reasonably priced and they serve you with a smile. Now I understand why there is such a crowd at this stall. I am very certain that they would continue to maintain their standards and this I can see from the way they were operating. Every step was based on protocols and the training that they had been given. In a matter of months, I am sure that these guys would be doing very well. Keep up the great work guys!
