Pizza and Curry = A-OK
Who would have thought to top a pizza with Indian curry? There is actually a name for it. It’s called Desi style. Pizza and Curry is a little hole in the wall in a strip mall in the City of Fremont that serves such a thing.
My book club met for dinner this evening. Although they have normal pizzas as well, we went for the Desi gourmet pizzas. There were fifteen types of Indian pizzas to choose from, so we ordered three medium sized pizzas to share. The first pizza was the tandoori chicken pizza which we ordered mild. It had tandoori chicken, red onion, tomatoes, cilantro, and mozzarella cheese on creamy garlic sauce.
Our second pizza was chicken tikka which we ordered with a medium spice. It was very similar to the tandoori chicken except it had the stronger flavor of the chicken tikka which I liked better.
The third pizza was the aaloo gobi which had a spicy red sauce, spiced potatoes and cauliflower, cilantro, and mozzarella cheese. We also ordered this medium.
I enjoyed the fresh cilantro that came on all the pizzas. The pizza crusts were really good as they remained crispy and chewy from my first slice until my last slice. The consensus seemed the aaloo gobi pizza was the favorite. I saw an Indian couple take out pizza and picked up packages of ketchup. I thought I would give it a try, so I dipped my pizza in the ketchup and added crushed pepper which really added another dimension to my pizza.
