Whenever we think about American pizzas first names that come to our minds are Dominos and Pizza Hut, which dotted the entire nation within a very short span of time. The Indian teenagers and middle class population developed a sudden liking for their Hand Tossed Crusts.
A hand tossed crust is a crust in which the pizza dough is stretched out by tossing it using your hands. The dough is first pre-stretched working the dough out into a bit of a larger diameter circle by just moving your fists up and down. The most interesting part is when it’s tossed up in the air. The better the spin, the more it will stretch. These American franchise outlets gained more popularity when they started churning out Indianized pizzas with amalgamation of flavours like Paneer Makhani or Chicken Tikka. Though they provided the option but neither promoted nor claimed to be the experts in Italian Thin Crust Pizzas. A thin crust pizza is prepared using a small ball of dough which is flattened using a rolling pin. It is until recently that authentic versions of thin crust pizza have made a way into the India’s esp. Delhi’s food scene.
The management and the chef of CPK are doing a good job by being dynamic and experimenting with tastes. It also helps retain the interest of people, who are always in the lookout for trying something new.
