Gone are the days where restaurants provide only 10 to 15 set pizza toppings for patrons to choose from. The rise of the gourmet pizza has made multiple flavours, healthy, custom-designed and half-and-half options possible. More interesting ingredients are now being utilised in Pretoria pizzas to suit a variety of tastes.
