New Delhi: Indians love cheese and toppings on their pizza and they are more inclined towards better quality than pricing, says Chef and World Champion in Acrobatic Pizza, Renato Viola. “Pizza is a global favourite. However, experimentation with pizza has been limited in many places. In India, I’ve noticed that people like a lot of cheese and toppings on their pizza and more recently I’ve seen people appreciate the better quality of pizza rather than focus on price, which is a good step,” Viola, a consultant for 1441 Pizzeria, told IANS over email.
The Italian chef, who visited India last month, says not all pizzas are unhealthy. Pizzas which are thick and made with sugars and preservatives qualify as unhealthy. And if you had only Indian ingredients to make a pizza, what would your recipe be? “The ingredients in India are amazing. You cannot find ingredients this fresh and pure in the US. It reminds me of Italy. I usually just love the taste of the dough and sauce. The Krish’s pizza at 1441 is a perfect example of an Indianised pizza". (IANS)
