Pizza is an Italian dish which we all know. Another thing we also know is that we Indians are very good at Indianizing things to suit our palate. Be it the desi Khakhara coming in Manchurian and Pizza Flavors or the Brulee getting the desi treatment. One dish that has got the most transformation in India is the Pizza. Desi Pizzas are loved by many across India – including me. I spoke about having them at Pizza Den in Sindhi Colony. This time around I was invited to try the desi pizza offerings at Cheesiaano Pizza Hyderabad. Like always, I will be sharing my experience of eating pizzas, pastas and much more at Cheesiaano Pizza.
Two to Tango – Two Outlets of Cheesiaano Hyderabad
I wasn’t aware of this chain of Pizza stores until unless I met the owner Gouthami. Was amazed to learn that the Cheesiaano Pizza chain started in Pune, spread to Mumbai and she was the first one to get it to Hyderabad. The ISB pass out lady was part of the tribal entrepreneur training program and had KTR launch her Himayatnagar outlet. Her dreams coupled with the training have surely come out well.
Cheesiaano Pizza Hyderabad has two outlets in the city. One in Sindhi Colony and other one in Himayatnagar. The one in Sindhi colony is a veggie friendly outlet and the other one serves up non vegetarian dishes too. I have been to both the outlets which are similar. The walls have quirky quotes all over along with a wonderful playlist. The only concern is that the place is quite small. So it can get crowded soon. They do offer their services on Zomato and Swiggy. Overall, ambiance wise, I liked the place just that it can get congested.
How is the food at Cheesiaano Pizza ?
One of the good things at Cheesiaano Pizza Hyderabad is that they have quite an expansive menu. Right from starters to desserts, they have you covered. They have fries, garlic bread and few chicken preparation for starters. We tried the stuffed veg garlic bread and it was delicious. I will prefer this over the Domino’s stuffed garlic bread any day. I also tried the pink sauce pasta and loved it. It was creamy, cheesy, loaded with veggies and perfectly cooked. I’d recommend you give this one a try.
Desi Pizzas at Cheesiaano Pizza Hyderabad
Moving on to the pizzas, like I said they serve some desi variants of the videsi pizza. We had quite a few of them – Chettinad Paneer, Paneer Makhni, Veg Mexicana, Cheesy Paneer, Rainbow Pizza and the Cheesiaano Favourite Pizza. (That’s quite a lot of Pizzas !) Of all these, my personal favorites are Chettinad Paneer and Paneer Makhni.
Chettinad Paneer is a novel take on the the regular paneer on Pizza preparation. Though slightly on the spicier side, the flavor is nice and everyone echoed the same thoughts. Being a Makhni lover that I am, I truly loved the Paneer Makhni Pizza. The Makhni sauce was just perfect and the Paneer topping complemented it. The bell peppers and red chilies on the top ensured the Pizzas tasted heavenly. The crust too was cooked to perfection. Though they don’t have any variation in the crust, the standard one is pretty good.
After having that much of Pizza and Pasta, it was time to try the desserts. The owner suggested we tried their Choco Lava cake. It looked exactly like how one would find at Dominoes. However, the taste was different. It was juicy in the center and had the crunch at the crust. IT was gooey and the sweetness was just perfect. The chocolate syrup at the center complemented the dough pretty nicely. We all surely had a delicious time with this luscious dessert at Cheesiaano Pizza Hyderabad.
Final Verdict: Must try Desi Pizza & Pasta at Cheesiaano
If you are a vegetarian, head to Cheesiaano’s outlet in Sindhi Colony otherwise Cheesiaano Himayatnagar is for you. Barring the size of the outlet, everything else is pretty good. The garlic breads and pastas are nice. The desi Pizzas at Cheesiaano Pizza Hyderabad are the highlight and come in a lot of variants. For vegetarians, the options are pretty good and are nicely done. My recommendation would be Chettinad and Makhni Paneer Pizzas. I’m sure you wouldn’t complaint. So that was about my Cheesiaano Pizza Hyderabad review. What desi pizza would you like to try ?
