Our best pick

Pizza
Pizza Primevera
Farmhouse Pizza
Pizza Primevera ( INR. 650+ taxes)

Being a true lover of Italian cuisine I could not resist myself from ordering pizza after looking at the pizza section on the menu. They serve variety of thin crust pizza with different toppings. You can always request to get customized topping for as customer satisfaction is their priority.

We ordered pizza primevera, which has a thin crust base loaded with a selection of vegetables. Fermented all-purpose flour is stretched and slathered with marinara sauce made with premium quality tomatoes and herbs. A generous helping of fresh mozerella cheese is then added over the sauce. Stretched dough is finally topped with bell peppers, mushrooms, olive, onions and jalapenos which adds color to the classic tomato sauce and cheese combination. It is the baked in a pre-heated oven until cheese melts and base becomes crisp.

Stringy and gooey cheese holds the vegetables together and streches upon biting into the pizza. Pizza seasoning and red chilli flakes are served on the side so that you can add same as per your liking.

Fresh vegetables as topping on the pizza makes up for all the junk food indulgence. On the side, we opted for the regular diet soda. Although, a variety of refreshing drinks are available to choose from. They also serve alcoholic drinks and you may order the same if age permits.

Our experience at this place was amazing. Delicious food and heart-warming hospitality is all what we crave for and this is one of those place where you can experience it. If you are travelling anywhere near East Delhi, then this place definitely deserves a visit!

How to make steamed vegetables?

Steamed Vegetables with herbs can be prepared in minutes. Just toss all the veggies in and add herbs you like. Cook for 5 minutes and you are done!
Produce that I used is – Broccoli Florets, Mushrooms, Ice Berg Lettuce and baby corn. Any vegetables can be used, as long as they are fresh and you like them but using vegetables in different colors is suggested , so that the dish looks vibrant and appetizing. The reason this recipe is considered healthy is because it not only uses fresh ingredients but it is also prepared with the healthiest method of cooking, that is steaming.

I got my vegetables from Urban Fresh which is a door step delivery service for fresh vegetables. They sell all kind of vegetables, whether you need traditional ones or exotic, they have it all.
You can place order via

Recipe

  • Add all the vegetables in a bowl except iceberg lettuce leaves, so that the lettuce leaves doesn’t turn soggy. Also, we have to use them as cups to fill the vegetables later.
Fresh vegetables
Chop the vegetables in thick chunks
  • I love button mushrooms so I have added those. You may add any mushrooms of your choice or you may skip them completely. A variety of mushrooms go well in this recipe. You may use shitake, oyester or enoki mushrooms.
Mushrooms
Fresh Button Mushrooms
  • Season with oregano, chilli flakes and salt. Oregano can be replaced with rosemary and chives as well but I like mine with oregano.
 Vegetables with herbs
Oregano can be replaced with other herbs
  • Drizzle extra virgin olive oil over vegetables. Here, I am using Olitalia Extra Virgin Olive Oil which you can get from Amazon. Check-out the link to buy it in the beginning of blog post.
Extra Virgin Olive Oil
I have used Extra Virgin Olive Oil by Olitalia
  • Place the lettuce leaves on a steamer plate/basket as placing lettuce underneath the vegetables not only prevents them from sticking but also adds flavour and texture to the recipe. Alternatively, cabbage leaves can be used in the place of iceberg lettuce, just in case they are not available. Although, lettuce is available at majority of supermarkets but finding them at local vegetable store is quite difficult sometimes.
  • Fill the vegetable mix in the lettuce leaves but keep in mind that you don’t over fill the cups otherwise they might not be able to hold the vegetables in place.
 Vegetables cups
These look delicious already
  • Cover and steam for 3-5 minutes. Serve Immediately after it is ready because this recipe tastes when hot.
Steamed Vegetables
Do not steam for more than 5 minutes
