I love pizzas and have had pizzas from several places in India. Here's what I think:

Pizza Hut - I don't like the dough they make, it's like white bread

Pizza Corner - they make the pizza with ketchup as the base sauce

Smokin Joe's - somehow every pizza they make tastes sweet are they adding sugar to the sauce?

La Pizzeria - best pizza by far, authentic Italian base and taste, toppings either Italian style, Indian style (spicier, chili etc) - or 'new age', i.e non-traditional (for example with asparagus). More expensive than the other three but wins hand down. Apparently they now have outlets in eight major cities throughout India.

Haven't tried Domino's yet though. But my guess is they are like Pizza Hut? Ok, but not superb?

What are your experiences with pizzas?

The pizza at La Piazza in Delhi Hyatt is very very good. Ordered Domino's once and although the "spicy chicken" order was hot .... the pizza itself took about 2 hours to be delivered and thus cold to the touch.

I had pizza in a Chennai hotel ten years ago.

It gave me the impression that the chef had never seen one, but had maybe telephoned abroad to find out what should go into it.

The best pizzas I've had in India have been from Italian restuarants. In Delhi, Vasant Lok market, the restaurant Sartoria makes delicious thin crust pizzas. The Bianco white pizza is delish. I've had multiple pizzas from multiple Italian restaurants and they've all been pretty good.

Dominoes is rubbish.

In Nepal you absolutely cannot beat the pizzas from Fire and Ice at the entrance to Thamel in Kathmandu. One of the best pizzas I've had anywhere.

Quite. SOme of the engredients might have been correct, but they certainly weren't put together in the right way!

I don't recall the details of that Waldorf salad --- but it was certainly a bit like something out of Fawlty Towers!

Those Indian fawlty tower-like events are still one of the major attractions in visiting the country.

..... yet it's always a tough call whether to complain or not to the manager in an Indian restaurant .... because the resultant blame game that it sometimes sets in motion is no comedy act and usally results in the Manuel(fawlty towers fall guy) equivalent taking a thrashing(verbal or otherwise) deep within the bowels of the kitchen.

almost every city I visited had at least one restaurant that served a very decent Italian style pizza. Keep in mind these places have nothing to do with the chains you mentioned, whose pizza I wouldn't serve to a dog.

I once complained about a cup of tea.

(you see, I save my energy for the most important matters)

I was astonished to be told that it had been made by a trainee who didn't know how to do it!

"What do you mean?" I cried, "His Mother should have taught him to make tea".

I don't like the assumption here that a dog might get worse pizza than anyone else. Better not let Noodle hear you say that. Or Birds.

Exception the Little Italy-La Pizzeria. Really excellent!

They have outlets in Mumbai, Pune, Goa, Bangalore, Chennai, Hyderabad and Kolkata. Try one if you're near!

No offence taken, our dogs love Pizza Hut, Smokin Joes and the like
