Pizza places are a dime a dozen in metropolitan cities like Bengaluru. They sometimes mushroom in the unlikeliest of places, and disappear like bubbles because of the competitive market. Thus, when we first heard of Oven Story, we were a bit sceptical.
Then the pizza and the garlic bread were delivered, and we were covered in a deluge of cheese!
The nice people at Oven Story Pizza, Hosur Road, sent us a Chicken Tikka and Keema Chipotle Pizza and some Garlic Bread with Cheese. Honestly, we drowned in the cheese. Here’s our review.
Chicken Tikka and Keema Chipotle Pizza
This is one loaded pizza. On its own, this is quite a flavour trip for the tongue. Add the oregano mix, and the taste moves one notch higher.
Now, the presentation on this pizza ain’t the best, and I will readily admit it. The chicken tikka pieces, the keema – Indian-style cooked and flavoured minced meat – and the onion chunks seem placed a little haphazardly, giving one the impression that the toppings are a bit sparse.
But you don’t mind. Why? Because its pizza!
Garlic Bread with Cheese
Now this one is a sure-fire hit! Thick chunks of garlic bread topped with creamy, salty cheese make you crave more.
Here’s a thought. The next time you drink wine, order these and intersperse each swig of that vino with a bite of this salty, cheesy monstrosity – and, once again, I call it a monstrosity with the best of intentions.
The sharp tang of acidic wine should complement the creaminess of the cheese quite well, and you will have a filling meal without eating much – if you can stop yourself, that is.
And don’t worry about garlic breath. The garlic in this bread is quite subtle – to the point where you may not be able to taste it all!
Final thoughts on Oven Story Pizza
There are pizzas and there are pizzas. Oven Story Pizza does not seem to offer up anything too different.
But it is definitely worth a try. If not for the pizza then the cheesy garlic bread, which can give a similar offering from possibly all competing brands a run for their money!
