A good pizza is not just about the toppings. The taste depends on the way it’s baked too. And when it’s baked wood-fire style, you can be assured that every bite will pack a punch.
A wood-fired pizza is baked in an oven that houses hardwood fire and typically, the oven is brick laden. The result of baking a pizza like this is that you are treated to a crispy crust on the outside and a soft, warm goodness on the inside.
Here’s our round up of some restaurants that serve a great wood-fired pizza.
298, 100 Ft Road
Toit is Bangalore’s three-floor high favourite hang out. They brew their own beer and they serve more than their fair share of pub grub, which includes a range of pizzas. With three vegetarian options and more than five non-vegetarian, all their pizzas are baked to wood fire perfection.
Ascendas Park Square
Habanero is Bangalore’s first Tex-Mex restaurant and promises authenticity in everything from the Nachos to the Margaritas. Their pizzas are special in that not only are they wood-fired but also the base is made up of thin fried tortillas and refried beans.
3. California Pizza Kitchen
Phoenix Market City
This US based chain has opened its doors to Bangalore and if the name is anything to go by, their pizzas are one of their hottest sellers. Whether it’s hand-tossed or crispy thin crust, CPK has a wide selection that will require you to visit more than once.
2 ITPL - Graphite India Main Road
With its graffiti walls and open atmosphere, Oliver’s is a quaint and admittedly quirky restaurant. Apart from the interesting blend of global cuisines, the restaurant also boasts of a brick oven pizzeria.
5. Little Italy
12 7th Block 32nd Main
Little Italy is a vegetarian’s haven for traditional Italian food. From a simple Sadu to more complex options like the Pizza Alla Vodka, there are as many as 35 varieties, all of which are made in a wood fire oven.
