The idea at MOD Pizza is tasty simplicity — an artisan-style, thin-crust pizza, moderately priced and served to the customer with speedy efficiency.

MOD, which stands for "made-on-demand," uses only quality, fresh ingredients with homemade sauce and dough.

The great catch is an unbeatable price of $6.88 for a single topping or add on everything but the kitchen with all 28 topping choices.

Their superhot 800-degree stone ovens cook up the pizzas at a fast pace, and when we've eaten there (seven times at last count) our pizzas were done in less than five minutes.

The menu: 10 signature pizzas or craft your own from the wide variety of meats, vegetables, herbs, cheeses and one fruit — pineapple. There are three salads ($3.88-$7.88) to choose from. Freshly baked garlic or cinnamon knots ($1.88) resemble small breadsticks.

What to write home about: The Lucy Sunshine (mozzarella, Parmesan, artichokes, garlic, with dollops of red sauce) is our top choice.

Another good pie is the Caspian (mozzarella, Gorgonzola, BBQ chicken, BBQ sauce and sliced red onions).

Kids with a not-so-big appetite can order the mini-MOD for only $3.88.

The garlic knots and handspun milkshakes ($2.85) were good.

What to skip: Caesar salad ($6.88) with romaine, tomatoes, asiago, Parmesan and a lemon wedge was OK but nothing to write home about.

The only sweet dessert-type treats (outside of the cinnamon knots) were the Hostess Cake Ding Dongs.

The setting: Brightly painted walls and concrete floors with 10 tables, a bar-style counter and more than 50 chairs in groups of two to six per table. Outside table and seating on nice days.

Summing up: We ordered a Lucy Sunshine ($6.88) with added spicy sausage and mushroom toppings; Jasper ($6.88) plus artichoke toppings; a two-topper with pepperoni and Canadian bacon; mini-MOD with pepperoni ($3.88); three milkshakes ($2.85 apiece); Caesar salad ($6.88); and a fountain drink ($1.75) for a total of $45.66 with tax.
