UP, CLOSE AND PERSONAL: Experience a slice of life... At Pizza Corner

HOW TO MAKE A PIZZA...
The  final out put...
Thanks to a good friend from Chennai Blogger's Club, Bragadeesh, I was invited to Pizza Corner at Virugambakkam outlet, to actually make a pizza and eat it too. along with many other delicious dishes and loads of drinks... and I did ended up making Panjabi Curry Masala with lots of Jalepeno's, Mushroom and Olives, which I always thought the chef's always held back their hands while sprinkling them on the Pizza Bread. Thanks are also due to Deepa Pillai from Bangalore, who organised an event around giving a Pizza making experience to most of the Chennai bloggers... So here is a learning and hope the guys at Pizza Corner learn a thing or two.

But first of all.. What is a pizza?
The modern pizza was invented in Naples, Italy, and the dish has since become popular in many parts of the world.  Many varieties of pizza exist worldwide, along with several dish variants based upon pizza. In 2009, upon Italy's request, Neapolitan pizza was safeguarded in the European Union as a Traditional Specialty Guaranteed dish. The word pizza originates from the Latin verb pìnsere ("to press") and from the Greek pitta (derived from ancient Greek pēktos, πηκτός, meaning "solid" or "clotted"). A popular urban legend holds that the archetypal pizza,

Pizza Margherita, was invented in 1889, when the Royal Palace of Capodimonte commissioned the Neapolitan pizzaiolo Raffaele Esposito to create a pizza in honor of the visiting Queen Margherita. Pizza migrated to America with the Italians. After World War II many returning soldiers who were stationed in Italy created a high demand for the pizza they encountered and tasted in Italy.

In India…
Another Try out..
Pizza is an emerging fast food in Indian urban areas. American pizza chains Domino's Pizza and Pizza Hut opened their first outlets in India in 1996. Domestic pizza brands include Smokin' Joes and Pizza Corner. Indian pizzas are generally spicier and more veggie-oriented than those in other countries. For instance, oregano spice packs are included with a typical pizza order in India instead of Parmesan cheese.

The Norwegians eat most pizza in the world according to a survey by ACNielsen 2004, 5,4 kg/year per capita. 50 million frozen pizzas were sold that year, with consumption being 22,000 tons of frozen pizza, 15,000 tons of home-baked and 13,000 tons of restaurant-made pizzas.

OK, we have heard about the negatives about Pizza, here is something positive…

Ready to eat...

European nutrition research on the eating habits of people with cancer of the mouth, oesophagus, throat or colon showed those who ate pizza at least once a week had less chance of developing cancer. Dr Silvano Gallus, of the Mario Negri Institute for Pharmaceutical Research in Milan, attributed it to lycopene, an antioxidant chemical in tomatoes, which is thought to offer some protection against cancer…

Enough History and back ground, now let’s go and make one Pizza…
Deepa Pillai - Our Host of the day
Well, first of all, let me say that it was such a nice idea from Pizza Corner to invite common people like us to experience their "Slice of Life" and it made our day.

To begin with, I was not able to find the place as my mind’s GPS has latched on to someone’s suggestion from The Chennai Blogger’s Club that it’s just behind Koyambedu Veg Market and I went around in circles till the time I called Deepa, our host from Bangalore, who expertly got me at the outlet within 15 minutes. As I reached there, the Blogger’s gang was already in full flow of their creative output… I was asked to wear the hair cap, before I entered the Cooking area, which was always out of bounds for me as a customer… The Pizza corner team was all there, explaining, guiding and demonstrating on the way to making a lovely pizza. So here are some of the images, how it all went.. hope you will enjoy the experience too…


The Process...

The Gang...

Well the poster's don't lie... at Pizza Corner.

And we all had great fun, making our own pizza...
