If there’s one thing we Indians cannot do without during the summer months, it’s mangoes. Loaded with juiciness, we leave no reason to experiment with them. From mango kulfi and mango rabri to mango falooda, there are endless mango recipes that we absolutely love. However, have you ever thought of having mango on a pizza? Yes, you heard that right. A recent video that surfaced online shows a man using the humble mango to make a pizza, and foodies are quite disappointed. This bizarre fusion dish has also left pizza lovers underwhelmed.
A video featuring a mango pizza has been shared on Instagram by @bombayfoodie_tales. In the clip, we can see the making of this unusual pizza. The video begins with a man pouring mango puree over a pizza base. He then spreads it out evenly and arranges thinly-cut mango slices on top. He adds some more puree before serving it to the customer. The post’s caption reads, “Trying out the delicious mango pizza.” According to @bombayfoodie_tales, this pizza is sold at a food joint called ’99 Pizza’ in Galleria Mall, Powai, Mumbai.

A third person added, “Use me as a dislike button.” “How to offend both Italians and Indians!” added another.
