The Memoir of Pizza(Straight from the dairy of Pizza)


Date: 17th September 2010,

Indian Summers

Being a celebrity food in this country is not easy. Another day has

passed with number of photoshoots, private party visits, public campaigns and other engagements. I still remember my journey from small town of Italy to American cities and now straight into Indian hearts.

The most popular food

Back in Italy, every one use to call me Margarita.  I was simple and slim. With the development of America as the new World, I was taken to America along with my compatriots like Pasta, salads and calzones. America really received me well and I immediately became very famous there. Though they changed my appearance and toppings but they never changed the feel. In America, I met this tall, dark and handsome bew, we fell in love and we got married. His name is Coke.

We were hugely celebrated couple in America and travelled around the world. But soon the dark side of getting famous came on us. Too much attention by media and paparazzi affected our personal lives and after few troubled year we wanted to leave America for some peaceful state. During that time, we scouted many countries and of all we zeroed on India. India, we thought, will allow us to live peacefully and enhance professionally.

Since then, 25 years have been passed and we really made India our new home. But it was not an easy journey in India. People use to call me with different names like Pijja, Pilja, and also sometimes Puja. They compared me with Indian breads and said I lacked the malasas. I took my time and embraced the local flavours and since then I have never looked back. Now you can find Chicken Tandori Pizza, Aloo Dam Pizza and Desi Paneer Pizza also. Coke is also enjoying India a lot and he always accompanies me wherever I go.

Last few years have been really difficult for Food Industry in India. Due to arrivals of Yankees(Hotdogs and Burgers), the competition has really showed us. Due to this reason we have to continuously try innovative ways to be different and stay in demand.

However, my last appearance was very controversial one. I was filled with silky layer of liquid cheese between my base. It made me very cheesy and very tasty. It was called Cheese Bust Pizza. The foodies around country loved it but few questioned me on moral grounds. They said that how ethical it was for me to have an additional layer of cheese. They said it was like one to the silicon plantation in the body. These criticisms really took my morale down but changes, I believe, are part of a foods’ life. How often do you come across the food like Bajara Ki Rati which has never changed its form and are even forgotten by its own people (though I greatly admire it as great food)But my life is completely different. I am so famous that my merchandises are available everywhere (Pizza bread, Pizza bun, Pizza cheese, Pizza sauce etc.).

Last night, I was catching with my friend Pasta and we discussed the taste of modern india. How similar it is becoming to Americas’ where we lived for many years. I was also joking with her that she will be soon “Haldiramed” (“Haldiramed” in the food world is worst thing that can happen to a foreign food in India. Haldiram try to make these foods in their style and at the end of the day every food has a same taste)

Well, its late in the night and I think that I should call off for sleep. Tomorrow is another busy day for us. Few birthday parties, office lunches, Fat wedding dinners are scheduled for tomorrow. Coke has a ad-shoot with few cricketers and film stars. Getting some sleep would be a good idea.

Good Night,

Pizza

Note from Bunty and Hungry: The story of Pizza’s life has really touched our hearts. So, we want to give our tribute to Pizza for her contribution in the food world. We have ordered a double cheese bust pizza with coke.(yes, we like silicon pizza!)

Happy cooking and Happy Eating,

Bunty Aur Hungry

Happily Married: Coke with Pizza
