Baked & Wired

Along with their 28″ monster pizzas, Baked and Wired Pizzeria does enough to feed a hungry family. In addition to pizzas, they do exceedingly good fresh pasta. In fact, all their pasta is hand-made and not shop bought.

Their spinach and ricotta ravioli in tomato sauce and mushroom tortellini are terrific. They also make their own linguine in cheese sauce. Pizza toppings are limited to three of each. Margarita, magic mushroom with shitake, button and oyster and the veggie mix. In non-vegetarian, you have roast chicken, barbecue chicken, a lovely fragrant lemon chicken and thyme and a pepperoni. The monster pizza is enough to feed 6 easily and therefore at an average of INR 1,000 is pretty good value for money. Also available is garlic bread with their home baked bread and garlic bread with cheese. They support local cheese maker ABC farms.
