Best Pizzas in Dubai - We'll Show You How It's Done!

19 Nov, 2014 / Posted By Mayuri

Pizza is arguably the most popular food in the world. While the origins of this timeless dish are disputed to this day, it is commonly attributed to Italian cuisine. In this article, we bring to you the best ways to eat a pizza, the most popular toppings across the worlds, and we will also reveal our top picks of pizzerias around town where you can dine out or order delivery from. 

Did you know that the way you eat your pizza makes a huge difference in taste? Apparently we've been doing it wrong all along: you must turn the pizza upside down, crust facing upwards. This way, the instant contact with your tongue maximises flavour. Do you agree? How would you eat these little slices of heaven? Here are our suggestions:

We at RoundMenu are torn over how we should eat our pizza. Some of us like it spicy, with Tabasco and chilli flakes. Others argue that it's delicious dipped in ketchup, mustard or mayonnaise. Purists fervently argue that plain is the way to go... but all of us agreed that a pizza tastes best when shared with friends over a Coke and a few drinks. That is, until we start discussing the toppings. Check out how pizza is eaten across the world:
