Cebuano Food of the Day: Magic by JCA Pizza

JCA Pizza Cebu Magic
Way back in the early 90's when I was still in high school there was a pizza parlour that was popular with Cebuanos. JCA Pizza was an instant hit back then because of their affordable and delicious pizzas.

They were also famous for their monster pizza which is a giant pizza prized four times the regular pizza. The pizza competition in Cebu is very stiff as many pizza stores opened up in the past few years.  From big chains like Yellow Cab to local chains like Alberto's to smaller pizza outlets like Ryan Pizzarelli, Cebuanos have so many options when it comes to this popular Italian flatbread. Many stores closed already but JCA is one of the strong survivors in the local pizza wars.

Recently I was in the Capitol area and I was looking for a food that I can bring home. I was parked near JCA so I decided to get a pizza.  The obvious choice for me is Magic.  It has been quite a while since I last ate at JCA and I miss their Magic pizza.

JCA's Magic Pizza is made of a thin crust dough and it is topped with quickmelt cheese, ground beef, luncheon meat, hotdog, salami, chorizo, mushrooms, onions, and bell peppers.  It is like a supreme pizza but with ingredients that you can easily buy in the nearby grocery.  For 175 pesos, I would say that this pizza is a bargain.  The size is good for 2 to 3 people but in a good day, I can finish the whole pizza without any help. I like putting a lot of hot sauce in this one. 

The pizza did not last long at home.  Even if I had dinner already, I was still able to finish more than half of the Magic pizza. Good thing, I bought another pizza for my wife and her parents. I still consider Magic as  one of my favourite pizza flavors.

The Magic Pizza is one of the best solutions to your pizza cravings.  The pizza is big enough and it definitely gives you more bang for your bucks.  This is the best for people who are not after those expensive ingredients and just want to enjoy pizza while watching a movie at home.  If you happen to drop by JCA, order Magic and remember me. Abra Cadabra! :)

JCA Pizza has branches in Capitol Site, Gorordo Avenue, and Salinas Drive.  For deliveries, you may  call 032-231-4000
