It’s hard not to like pizza, especially authentic Neapolitan pizza. That’s exactly what I found at Magna Magna.
You could easily miss this place or mistake it for something else. It’s a quaint little log cabin lurking at the back end of the EM Wellness Resorts car park. The twinkly star at the top gives it an odd christmassy feel, quite a juxtaposition with regards to its real nature; a pizzeria. It’s tiny but well equipped, the small area dominated by an impressive kiln, and a clean, modern kitchen. Everything can be seen through the large window. You order through a little hatch, and the chef even has an English menu available for non-Japanese speakers.
Let’s talk food. The menu is pretty good, with a decent array including vegetarian options. They come in two sizes; small (20cm), and regular (30cm). The small would be enough for one, the regular could feed two. The thing that really caught my eye here was the dessert pizza. You heard right. Dessert. Pizza. There were two options; brown sugar and pear, and banana and caramel. I simply couldn’t pass up the opportunity to try a banana caramel pizza. I’ll admit I was a little skeptical, until I tired it. Magna Magna should be renamed “little slice of heaven”, because that is exactly what it tasted like. Completely fresh, cooked whilst you wait, and bursting with flavour.
The banana was soft and gooey, complimented perfectly by the sweet of the caramel and sour of the sough. The crust was divine, you would be a fool not to eat the entire thing! Other items on the menu that piqued my interest (but that I didn’t get round to trying, at least this time) was the margarita pizza (mozzarella cheese and tomato sauce), the mushroom trio (does what it says on the tin), and the bismarck (boronia sausage and soft-boiled egg). Actually, my husband ordered that last one, which I did in fact conduct a strictly-for-work taste test on, and I can confirm this is also delicious and worthy of your taste buds. Price wise it’s fair, with small pizzas starting at 800 yen, and large at 1,000 yen.
Drinks wise, it’s limited. They have bottled water and alcohol-free beer for the most part. We chose to sit and eat our pizzas at one of the little tables they have set up in the vicinity, and the chef kindly gave us free cups of water. It was a peaceful evening, surprisingly not too many bugs trying to get in on the action, and it’s certainly a place I would visit again.
Make tonight pizza night!
