The spicy, sweet and sour, sometimes hot and spicy sauce from Indian cuisine on an Italian pizza? Oh yes. But of course only from local ingredients.

Cooking is a lot of fun when it creates something new that surprises the taste buds. Sweet combined with salt creates a surprise in the mouth. Finding out which ingredients belong together and why is an art in itself. Okay, sweet-spicy-fruity chutney on a pizza is not common. But hey. We (well, not all of us) got used to Hawaiian pizza. And pineapple on pizza is much more exotic. Pizza is the ideal playground to try out flavor combinations. And to drink? Here, too, the recommendation applies: what is fun and tastes good.
