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.

7 Tips to make the perfect pizza

1. The pizza sauce can make or break a pizza, so always give enough attention to making or procuring the best sauce.
2. Be generous with the cheese, but don’t overdo it.
3. Go for varieties of cheese that melt.
4. Bake your pizza till crisp.
5. Make sure you bake it just before serving to relish the best taste and texture.
6. Use only the right amount of toppings. Too much of it will make your pizza sagging and soggy!
7. Always top the pizza with a little Parmesan cheese after baking.
