Everyone who is close to me should know that pizzas are my favourite food. Blame the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles – my love affair with pizza started after I saw the first movie of that franchise. And the city of Cochin has caught on to pizza in a big way. After so any years of having to settle for really bad pizza that was just flat bread with toppings we had three big franchises open outlets here – Dominos, Pizza Hut & US Pizza. In the last year I’ve seen an almost authentic Italian pizzarria open up at Woodlands on MG Road and now we have a month long pizza festival. Who doesn’t love pizza?
Trident Hotel on Willingdon Island is hosting ‘Pizzaria @ The Patio’ festival with some classic & different takes on the pizza. From the classic margherita to the Mediterranean, the Bianco pizza, to the sea food mix ‘Frutti di marre’ and the Cajun Spiced chicken pizza. Unlike most other places in India, you can have beef toppings on your pizza in Kerala. I’m intrigued by the ‘Hyderabadi Nawabi pizza’- which has lamb keema, onion rings & mint chutney baked cheese! Sounds magnificent to say the least. And ‘Oriental pizza, which as a spicy Schezwan sauce with oriental vegetables and chilli paneer.
Priced between Rs.395 to Rs.525 the pizzas will be served with a pint of beer. Excellent!
