Because of the interesting name, we decided to try Hot Millions pizza in Surrey.
Located on Scott Road, the place has had some decent reviews… check out some of the write-ups on Urban Spoon. We thought it was nice that the owner responded personally to many reviewers’ comments, too. So to Hot Millions we went!
The storefront is underwhelming…but CLEARLY, ever so clearly, marked with several signs indicating “$8.99 for any size pizza.”
And yet I somehow ended up being charged $9.99…
As you can see,the flyer is pretty clear — up to 5 toppings, any size, $8.99. The bills clearly shows no more than 5 toppings for each pizza.
Anyway, the price isn’t my only beef…
I personally did not enjoy my pizza. The tomato sauce was acidic tasting, like it was cheap and not fresh or something. The crust was gross too…it tasted like whole wheat* (in other words, like blah cardboard) but it wasn’t.
I had bacon on it, which usually makes anything great. Let’s face it, bacon on ice cream, although unorthodox, would probably somehow manage to be delicious. But it wasn’t able to save this pizza.

I would rate this pizza 4/10. 4 because it was actually sort of edible. I threw the last few slices away though…it just wasn’t worth ingesting those extra calories for something so unsatisfying.
Overall, blah. I won’t go back. I’d rather spend twice as much and get Panago.
Oh, but it was at least edible, and SLICED and didn’t have entire cloves of garlic on it…which automatically makes it better than the much-praised (undeservedly, in my opinion) Nicli Antica in Vancouver.
*One of my biggest pet peeves: people who think eating ‘whole wheat’ stuff is healthier for you…okay, yes, whole wheat is healthier than white flour, but I’m talking about ‘whole wheat’ stuff (note the quotation marks) — the white flour-based stuff that has colouring added to it…more common than many people think. Plus let’s face it… you want healthy, don’t order fatty pizza from a place like this. OH, and let’s not forget how gross whole wheat crusts taste. YUCK.
