Tasconi's Pizza in Johor Bahru near AEON Jusco Mall Bukit Indah

Tasconi's-Pizza-Johor-Bahru

The boss of Tasconi's Pizza, Noor Hashim, who is a Johor Sedap Halal foodie group member invited me to his pizza restaurant which opened about six months ago in Bukit Indah, conveniently right next to the AEON Jusco mall. Tasconi's Pizza is a Bruneian franchise with restaurants in Malaysia, Indonesia and Brunei.

Inside, Tasconi's Pizza restaurant is inviting, simple and neat, yet comfortable. Besides dining in at the cosy restaurant, Tasconi's pizza also provides free pizza delivery (delivery hot line is 07-300-3180).

At Tasconi's Pizza, there are 17 types of pizzas on the menu.

Noor let us try Tasconi's regular 10" Spicy Beef pizza (which sells for RM26.90).

Tasconi's Spicy Beef pizza had generous toppings of minced beef, beef salami, beef pepperoni, jalapeno peppers, onions, with lots of imported Italian mozzarella cheese.

We next tried Tasconi's regular 10" Mexicana pizza (at RM26.90).

Tasconi's Mexicana pizza had loads of toppings of ground beef, onions, red and green peppers, fresh tomatoes, jalapeno peppers, and again, plenty of mozzarella cheese.

I liked both Tasconi's Spicy Beef and Mexicana pizzas. The thick crust was just the right crispness outside and inside it was moist. The ingredients were fresh and the molten cheese was rich and creamy. Though rich, Tasconi's pizzas were not overly greasy.

Tasconi's roll, the franchise's signature dish available with beef or mackerel fillings at RM16.90.

We had the beef with plenty of cheese. To me, it taste and felt like a huge pie.

Tasconi's sides are pretty good too. This cream of mushroom soup was the soup of the day (RM5.90). Made with fresh mushrooms, it was tasty.

After enjoying the sumptuous meal, as usual, I made the bold request to visit the kitchen :P Noor graciously agreed to let me in :))

The centre piece in the kitchen was this large double decker oven with conveyor belt system. This oven which reminded me of those Transformer robots was imported from Italy.

I had the opportunity to watch the entire process of making a Tasconi pizza :)

Each pizza is assembled upon order. The tomato sauce and fresh toppings are added to the dough according to the order.

Presto! A piping hot beef pepperoni pizza straight out of the oven after 6 minutes.

Tasconi's Pizza is definitely worth a try, whether eating in at the Bukit Indah restaurant or at home by free home delivery.

  4. thats not a proper pizza oven, its the typical variety used by budget quick service type pizzerias and kebab shops. having said that, i love my fast food type deep dish pizza as much as i love the stonebaked authentic italian variety and this looks like a mighty good specimen. definitely looking forward to trying it, hope they deliver to my area.

    also- that "roll" is essentially a calzone. basically a huge italian currypuff :P you make a pizza similar to normal and then fold it up so the fillings are not exposed. they keep warmer and the cheese stays meltier longer, so if you take away and carry home without a pizza warmer bag, this would be a good option if you like your cheese all melty.
