Jasper Reid, TV Chef and Promoter of Dolomite (Jamie’s Master Franchisee for India) said: “I’m crazy about pizzas and I’m crazy about India and the idea was to arrange their marriage! I know pizzas but our dream is to learn Indian cuisines and cultures and the humble pizza acts like a passport for making friends and creating amazing new pies. Our partner Jamie Oliver has spent his entire career using food to make good things happen and The Great Indian Pizza Adventure is just another part of this journey.
And it’s incredible what we’ve been able to create using classic Indian recipes transformed into pizzas. On one level it’s pure fun and a way of meeting communities. On another level, it’s about showing that an international brand respects local culture and cuisines and becomes a better brand by discovering its desi side. I’m a go, but I’m better as a desi Gora!”
Arati Singh, Chief Executive Officer, GOODTiMES said, “Who doesn’t love pizza? But we also can’t live without Indian food, right? So, we took Pizza, the universal favourite food of the planet, and paired it off with the most iconic Indian flavours, to present viewers with the most mouth-watering desi pizzas ever made!
