Instapizza – Bringing The Pizza Revolution To India

insta[izza 1

Deep dish pizza is as accurately named as any food I know. Even if you’ve never experienced one in person, you already know to expect something imposing and thick, with generous layers of sauce and cheese. You also know that eating one will leave you absolutely and completely full, perhaps uncomfortably so. All of this is true. No matter what you think about this style of pizza, it’s hard not to be impressed by its stature. Deep dish pizza has been winning hearts internationally, and Instapizza has finally taken the leap to get this hearty meal to India.

I have been a pizza lover all my life and with the news of deep dish pizza entering the by lanes of Delhi, I knew I had to give Instapizza a try. Pizza cravings are for real! Like, they do exist for real! You want proof? Ask a person like me who wants to loose weight and is trying to diet; but one email from a company who would like their pizzas reviewed by us and the diet is over! Gone, and gone for good! So in my due course of reviewing a relatively new pizza place in town, I got the opportunity to try one of their deep dish pizzas and now I will be sharing my thoughts on the same!

So before we dig into details, I would like to mention that they are a start up which makes customised pizzas and sides which they started as a home delivery and take away thing, but on a recent visit to Gurgaon sector 50 Bani Square, I saw their dine-in pizzeria as well! So they have their reach now in Gurgaon (dine in and takeaway), south delhi, i.e. Vasant Vihar (dine in and take away) as well as in Kalkaji.

So for the tasting I received an 8″ Pork based non veg deep dish pizza along with jalapeno stuffed Veg Garlic twists. Firstly, the pizza looked huge to me! Talking of the toppings, the deep dish pizza was stuffed (like literally smothered) with oodles of bacon bits, pork chorrizo, fresh garlic and onions and topped with flavoursome pork pepperoni! My dad and me are hardcore pork lovers so we loved the pizza! But had I not been a pork person I would have surely abhorred it (just like my sister did)! Like this pizza is a delicacy but only if you have a pre built taste for pork delicacies! Other wise you would straight away rule it as the worst (tasting and smelling) pizza ever. But I loved it!

The crust was not too crusty! I know this is the most vague line ever written, but the crust was not very crisp but had a medium soft crust and that is personally how i like my pizzas! It was not flooded with cheese which was okay as the toppings were humongous and covered up for the lack of cheese! And it is not as if the cheese content was really less, but if you are expecting cheese burst kind of pizza then you’ll be in for disappointment. But even with a moderate amount of cheese, the pizza did not taste bland or even average! I would call it the best pizza i have ever had! Full of meat, crisp on the out, gooey from the centre, fresh ingredients, smelled of fresh pork, just the right amount of cheese to balance out the meaty flavours and it comes with a customised packaging with the clients name on it! How cool is that!

The only downside I felt was that the pizza did turn a bit soggy from the lower edges by the time it was delivered to me! I mean i understand that maybe the pizza turned soggy during the deliverance period and was very fresh and crisp when packaged, but that is exactly my concern as their main business started off as a take away pizzeria and how is one supposed to enjoy their pizza and its crisp crust if it will turn soggy on the way! I just wish instapizza works a bit upon its base, because other than that the pizza is definitely a thumbs up from us!
