Crafted for discerning Indian taste buds, Momo Mia Pizza’s vegetarian variant has a delightfully crunchy pan pizza base, with toppings of capsicum, onion and sweet corn, encircled by mouth-watering mixed vegetable & paneer momos. The non-vegetarian variant comes with capsicum, onion and schezwan chicken meatball toppings, with succulent chicken momos around the edges. Pizza Hut has created a unique sauce recipe for the Momo Mia Pizza with the much-loved flavours of spicy schezwan, which is generously spread on the base along with 100% mozzarella cheese.

“During the pandemic, we found that consumers are longing for desi street style food and momos emerged as the dish they were craving most, after gol gappas.

We are excited to see consumer reactions to this Epic combination of two much loved stalwarts – Momos & Pizzas,” said Neha, Chief Marketing Officer, Pizza Hut India.
