Chicken Tikka. Thin crispy pizza base with a slightly puffed base; masala sauce, spread thinly where the tomato puree would usually be; strips of marinated chicken alternate with long, hot, sweet green chillis arranged, like spokes from the centre, to form a star which ended only 1" from the edge of this 12" pizza; A sprinkle of chopped chillis and crushed red pepper corns: you could see the oil glisten, but the base remained only slightly moist and yielding so that it was impossible to tell whether it was italian bread and olive oil or naan bread and ghee. I asked what pizzas they did and was told I could have anything from the menu, so I chose a mixture of tastes and cultures (that's what they do there), but the dish they presented me with was so beautiful and tasted so perfect that I remembered every last detail. I could still taste the meaty sweetness and my mouth tingled with the hum of the searing, ice-sharp spices for the rest of the evening.
