RECIPE BACKSTORY
This pizza reminds me of India (specifically my state (Gujarat) and my city Ahmedabad) because in Ahmedabad we get this pizza with unmelted cheese on the top. This pizza also has some garam masala (indian spice) and has ketchup in it. I live in the US at present and whenever I miss my home in India, I make this pizza.
