Curry Pizza: Indian Food + Pizza = Love at First Bite

When I first visited Curry Pizza, I wasn’t sure what to expect. The setup is much like the thin crust pizza shops around town, however, a quick look at the sauces and you will know you are no longer in Kansas, Dorothy.

When I first visited Curry Pizza, I wasn’t sure what to expect. The setup is much like the thin crust pizza shops around town, however, a quick look at the sauces and you will know you are no longer in Kansas, Dorothy.

Honey Curry, Mango Korma, Tikka Masala, Green Mango Curry, and of course, Makhani; aka butter chicken! We all know this is everyone’s favorite starter Indian cuisine menu item! If these sauces are not your style, they have the traditional marinara with a spicy twist.

Stepping into the next section, you are presented with a large display of traditional pizza ingredients; mushrooms, pepperoni, sausage, you get the point. But again, what sets Curry Pizza apart is the Indian influence. I’m talking paneer cheese, tikka chicken, kale, butternut squash, peanuts, and roasted corn, to name a few. At $9.49, go wild and choose as many toppings as you like.

What could make this pizzeria better? Naan crust? Yes, naan crust! If you have had naan in the past, you know exactly how addictive it is. Naan is a soft, puffy bread with beautiful brown blisters.

Not sure what to order? They have a section of pre-created pizzas they can make fresh right before your eyes, or you can ask for a sample of your own favorite ingredients if you are daring to let your pallet experience them. The pre-created pizzas come in at $8.49.

If you love Indian food, jump right into the traditional curry pizza. Its curry sauce base will remind you of your favorite Indian restaurant. New to Indian food? Try the honey curry. This pizza blends traditional pizza ingredients like pepperoni and sausage with the honey curry sauce for a tasty introduction to Indian flavors. They have a secret menu based from regular creations. My favorite is Bhinda Special. This pizza screams Indian food and is amazing!

Who is Bhinda? The famous sauce creator himself—the owner of Curry Pizza. His family has deep roots in Utah, and owns the highly rated India Palace. It’s all making sense now, right? Bhinda is one of the most passionate pizzaiolos I have encountered in my life … and I eat a whole lot of pizza.

Taking a step away from pizza, Curry Pizza has tasty sides and drinks like the mango lassi drink—a yogurt-based mango milkshake or smoothie. This drink is a staple in any Indian restaurant. Curry Pizza makes it fresh in-house every day.

Garlic naan.

Wait … where are the breadsticks? Garlic naan replaces breadsticks and will make you forget all about bread-whats? However, I still encourage you to dip the garlic naan strips in ranch dressing.


Mango Korma.

Of course, we all have that family member or friend who may not like Indian food as much as we do, but they are catered to as well. Glazed gyro pizza for the Greek fans, Thai peanut chicken curry pizza for the Thai fans, and even an old world Mediterranean pizza for the “I only eat pizza like they make in Italy” fans.
