The Big Slice Pizzeria, Pune
Mr. Rajeev Sehgal and Mrs. Shalini Sehgal started this place upon suggestion from their son. Their son who is based in US and got inspired by the way pizza is served there in the form of big slices with loads of toppings.
The menu has variety of options to choose from. They have options in Wheat Pizza Base and Herb Pizza Base apart from normal pizza base. From mocktails to salads, pizza, pasta, nachos, waffles all favorites in one place. The thin crust pizzas and big slice pizza as the name suggests are their USP.
Home Delivery is available within the radius of 4-5 kms. Situated in Vadgaon Sheri, people staying in nearby areas can enjoy scrumptious pizza without having to travel any farther. Small yet beautifully decorated, this place has a capacity to serve around 20 people at a time.
The owners are humble and kind, always ready to serve with a smile. They have imported a dough flattener machine from Italy to get that perfect flattened pizza base. What else can show their effort to bring the authenticity and taste of real Italian pizza. Its simply to die for.
We started off with the mocktails.
All you need in a summer noon is a refreshing drink to start off and surely the drinks helped us with a kicking beginning to a tasting
Masala Cola – The favorite cola when mixed with chat masala, nothing can beat it. Loved every sip of it. Garnished with mint to make it look even more tempting.
Lemon Ice Tea – Sometimes it feels good to sip drinks without soda in between meals to sooth you. Such one drink is Lemon Ice Tea. Liked the flavour.
Blue Lagoon – That gorgeous blue color drink when arrives on the table surely excites you. Though not my favorite on the table but liked the tangy flavor to sip in between other flavors.
Green Apple Mojito – Let basics stays the best. Nothing can beat my love for mojito and the one presented here had on point flavors with right amount of soda, mint and green apple flavor.
After a refreshing start we headed over to appetizers –
Garlic Bread with Cheese – Crisp yet moist discs of bread with balanced flavor of garlic and mozzarella cheese. When that buttery cheese loaded garlic bread is not enough for you to tempt, they served it along with flavored butter. Tasted as delicious as it looked. The in-house prepared butter gave an added-on delicious taste to the buttery garlic bread. Well, that extra calories in the form of butter is always welcome.
Mexican Nachos – Did someone say in-house? This word wins my heart instantly. I appreciate the places who takes efforts to prepare and present in-house dishes from scratch, using fresh ingredients. The crisp nachos topped with bean sauce and melted cheese, served along with fresh salsa. Loved every bite of it. The fresh salsa makes it even more delicious, leaving you wanting for more and more.
Veg Caesar Salad – Freshly prepared Caesar salad always tempts you, specially in summers. The dressing was fresh and flavorful with the balance of mayonnaise, garlic, lemon juice and other ingredients. The bread croutons added the flavor and gave a nice bite to the salad.
20” Exotic Peppy Peppers and Veg Pesto Delight Pizza – The perfectly baked thin crust base with generous amount of delicious sauce, toppings and finished with lots of cheese. The best thing I like about this pace is they serve my favorite tobasco sauce along. It instantly adds on to the flavor which tickles your taste buds. The fresh and juicy paneer in the pizza was coated with pesto sauce which added to the flavor. Loved it.
Ravioli in Broccoli – Perfectly prepared ravioli pasta stuffed with generous amount of minced broccoli, topped with cheesy sauce full of broccoli chunks. I could have finished it all by myself if only I would have not stuffed myself enough with that scrumptious pizza.
Penne Alfredo Pasta – Perfect al dente penne pasta on alfredo sauce garnished with herbs and olives. The plating was so good to give a royal feeling. Those cutleries added to the beauty of pasta. Rich, creamy pasta was delectable.
After having such an amazing and delectable spread we were so looking for the best part Desserts. Surely the desserts were hit too –
Nutella Chocolate Pop – Never I tried waffle on a stick before. Wonderful concept, it reminded me of eating my favorite lollipop or softy during childhood. Its relishing to eat my now favorite waffle on the stick too. Generous amount of Nutella topping made it super delicious. Though I would have preferred the waffle to be little moist.
Charcoal Icecream Sandwich – The presentation was indeed eye pleasing. Vanilla icecream sandwiched in charcoal waffle, topped with chocolate sauce. Though I would have preferred the waffles to be little more softer and moist.
Choco Lava – OOOHHHH that oozing chocolate made me jump out of joy, like a child. Chocolate gets the kid in you arise from within. The soft and delicious chocolate crust filled with oozing hot chocolate gave a perfect ending to a delicious tasting.
Looking forward to visiting this place soon again with friends and family. #Recommended
