Pizza has become one of the top-rated international foods in India. There are gourmet Italian restaurants in every town, regular pizzerias in every neighbourhood, and on top of that, we even see local bakeries and roadside vendors selling pizzas made of readymade pizza bases. Although pizzas are made with veg and non-veg toppings, we see a lot of vegetarian-friendly variants available everywhere. Almost everybody, from kids to elders, happen to enjoy their pizzas! The interesting part is that many of them do not even know that the pizza is an Italian dish, because it is so commonly available in India, and there are tongue-tickling Indian variants too, with tandoori paneer and kadhai- cooked veggies as toppings, seasoned with peppy masalas!
What is a pizza?
The pizza is an Italian dish, made of a flat round disc of dough topped with pizza sauce, veggies, cheese and varied seasonings. It is a one-dish meal that can easily be made at home. If you have time, you can make it entirely at home, right from the dough to the sauce. However, for those who are short of time, there are workarounds like readymade pizza base and sauces.
13 Popular Pizza Recipes
Although there is an endless variety of pizzas, and on top of that you can create your own by combining different toppings and seasonings, the following are some of the classic, evergreen pizzas commonly found in all professional pizzerias.
