Do you want to know what the best pizza topping combinations are?

There is no doubting that pizza is among the world’s most popular fast foods. What’s neat about pizza is that it can be customised and tailored to suit your individual taste. With so many topping variations to choose from, there is always something for everyone. We’ve done a little digging to find the best pizza topping combinations. Here is what the experts have to say.

1. Ham and pineapple

This pizza topping needs no introduction. Simply say ‘Hawaiian pizza’ and everyone knows what you’re talking about. Here at Manoosh we love using smoked leg ham and that’s what you’ll find when you order our extremely popular Hawaiian Pizza.

2. Bacon and shrimp

Give us bacon any day and we’ll be happy. But bacon and shrimp? Heaven! Experts swear by this combo and say it’s definitely a must-try during your summer cookouts. We couldn’t agree more. We have a variety of shrimp pizza options for you to try out including our Spicy Prawns and Chorizo and King Garlic Prawn’s pizza.

3. Barbecue sauce and chicken

Another best pizza topping combination, according to experts, is barbecue sauce and chicken. Here, tomato sauce is swapped for barbecue sauce to give a delicious barbecue chicken pizza, offering a whole new way of experiencing this favourite summertime food. In addition to chicken, fresh peppers, onions, and other vegetables can be added for extra flavour. Keen to try out such a pizza? Check out our BBQ Chicken or Chilli Chicken pizza.

4. Taco toppings

Taco toppings offer one of the best pizza topping combinations, especially for those who love Mexican food. Combining the ingredients in tacos and spreading them on top of a hot and spicy sauce, gives the ultimate taco pizza or Mexican treat. But who needs tacos when you can get Manoosh’s specialty wraps? Choose from our menu featuring over six different, yummy wraps.

5. Spinach, eggplant, and mushroom

This pizza topping adds good health benefits to your pizza with leafy greens like spinach, chargrilled eggplant, and mushrooms. The spinach is crispy, the fresh tomato scintillating, and the kalamata olives give that Mediterranean flair which all combine to give this meal an enjoyable texture combination. Try any one of our Vegans Paradise or Vegelicious pizzas for a full-on veggie fest.

6. Garlic and ranch

If you love to dip your pizza in ranch dressing, then ranch and garlic are the ultimate pizza toppings for you. You can order a special homemade garlic ranch sauce in place of red sauce for your pizza. We’ve got plenty of dips to accompany any of your wraps and pizzas:  Hommus, garlic, Labne or Babaghannouj. Just ask in store for more information.

Are you wondering which beverage to pair with your favourite pizza?

Pizza is one of the world’s most loved foods that deserves the perfect beverage to go along with it. When you think of the drink pairings that can accompany pizza, it is hard to know which one will best complement the pizza you’re planning to eat, with so many different types of beverages to choose from. Here is a guide on the beverage that goes best with pizza.

1. Grape juice

Pairing drinks with pizza is all about the sauce and pizza toppings. If your pizza has a tomato sauce base, you can have it with a glass of red grape juice. Red grape juice can handle the acidity of the tomatoes and helps expose the complex flavours within the sauce. For pizzas that have cheese and a white base such as our Margarita and Garlic Chicken pizzas, choose white grape juice, lemonade, or lemon seltzer.

2. What cocktail goes with pizza?

A pizza meal can be taken up a higher notch with the right cocktail-pizza combination. The beauty of pizza is that it is versatile as no single cocktail goes with all pizzas. It is best to concentrate on the pizza’s key toppings when pairing with mixed drinks. Our classic Six Meats pizza is one of the pizzas that pairs well with most cocktails.

3. Negroni cocktail plus traditional pizzas

A Negroni cocktail features one part gin, one part sweet red vermouth and one part bitters, stirred with ice and a few slices of orange. This classic mixed drink allows the bitter and sweet flavours of the cocktail to mingle with the acidity of the tomato sauce and the subtle sweetness of the mozzarella cheese. Negroni cocktails also pair very well with Margarita pizzas.

4. Daiquiris plus meat pizzas

Heavy-meat pizzas such as our Six Meats, Pepperoni Burst and BBQ Chicken can be paired well with the old-fashioned daiquiris to offset the savoury meat with a sweet, tangy drink. For a simple but flavourful lime daiquiri, you can mix two parts rum with one part lime juice and a dash of simple syrup or sweetener. Lime daiquiris go very well with mixed-meat pizzas.

5. Whiskey-ginger cocktail

For simple pizzas such as our tasty Manoosh Vegetarian and Vegelicious options, pair them up with a whiskey-ginger cocktail. This can be made by simply mixing two parts whiskey and one part ginger ale over ice. This cocktail drink mimics the fizzy simplicity and slight spiciness of cola offering a simple, pizza pairing.

6. Rum-grapefruit plus vegetable pizzas

For pizzas that feature more complex, bitter flavours, such as savoury or exotic vegetables, like chive, try a rum-grapefruit cocktail. This can be a mixture of one part grapefruit juice, one part bitters, one part spiced rum and a splash of lime for pizzas with a bold clash of flavours, such as our Vegans Paradise, New Mexico, and Mediterranean Beef pizzas.

Are you ready to taste and experience different crust pizza menus?

The crust can be the main target for pizza innovation as it lays the foundation upon which all great pizzas are built. Besides helping dictate taste, texture, thickness, and topping selection on your pie, it is a great way to generate interest and buzz around new menu items. Here is a list of crust pizza menus.

1. Thin crust pizza

The thin pizza crust is crispy and delicate and is commonly thought of as the first type of crust to popular pizza on the global stage. In addition to the standard pizza dough components like flour, water, yeast, and salt, oil and sugar are added to help brown the crust. The pizza usually features tomato sauce and mozzarella cheese

The thin crust pizza includes classic style pizzas like Margarita which features tomatoes, sliced mozzarella, basil, and extra virgin olive oil. This is the perfect crust for those who want an authentic Italian pizza.

2. Thick crust pizza

A thick crust is most capable of allowing for massive amounts of delicious ingredients to rest on top of it. It can range from the buttery crust of the deep-dish pizza to the crispySicilian styles.

3. Deep-dish pizza

This pizza’s deep ledge allows for a generous portion of toppings and the slices can be up to 2 inches thick. The pies are baked in an oiled deep-dish pan to create a crispy, sometimes buttery, fried effect on the outside of the crust. Generally, the toppings for this pizza are ground beef, sausage, pepperoni, onion, mushrooms, and green peppers, placed underneath the tomato sauce

4. Vegan pizza crust

A vegan pizza crust has no animal products and is easier to attain with the same traditional pizza dough ingredients. Vegan crusts make greater use out of flavoured oils and herbs to flavour the crust.

5. Flatbread pizza

This thick, bready dough is infused with herbs and brushed with olive oil before baking. It is then covered with cheeses, herbs and spices. It is an extremely thin pizza shaped with a rolling pin such that gas bubbles are forced out, causing the pizza to stay flat. This style is lighter and ideal for appetizers and personal-sized pizzas, especially for health-conscious customers.

6. Gluten-free pizza crust

Gluten-free pizza doughs are comprised of standard ingredients like water and yeast that are bound with gluten-free flour. Flours for gluten-free pizza dough can be made from soy, rice, garbanzo beans, and multiple combinations between them.

Would you like to know the most popular pizza toppings in Australia?

Although pizza originated in Italy, it has arguably become the most loved and popular dish in the world, becoming a dish that’s often influenced by local cuisines and cultures. Australia in no exception, as pizza is still the favourite takeaway option nationwide. In 2017 alone, a whopping figure of 4 million pizza deliveries was recorded. Here is a list of Australia’s most frequently ordered toppings.

1. Cheese topping

What type of pizza is most popular in Australia? It turns out that Margherita pizza, with its tomato and cheese toppings far outranked the meat-loving companions and all other pizza toppings, taking the crown as Australia’s most popular pie. Created in 1899 and widely considered to be the original pizza, this tried and tested humble pizza continues to dominate as Australia’s pizza of choice.

2. Pineapple and bacon topping

Ranking second was a surprise pineapple-laden Hawaiian pizza. While there may be a debate as to whether or not pineapple belongs on a pizza, it is clear that the Aussies do not mind the tangy pineapple fruit sprinkled on their pizza, given its ranking as the second most ordered topping. Bacon came third as another hot addition that Australians love.

3. Pepperoni

The perfectly charred pepperoni came in at a respectable third place. It is hard to beat pepperoni pizza, with its warm, stringy mozzarella and crispy meat. Pepperoni is an American invention that originated from New York City around 1919 and has taken the world by storm ever since.

4. Meat-lovers

Meat-lovers pizza is completely different from the original Italian pizza which was totally vegetarian, that is garlic, cheese and basil, with no sauce. The pizza usually features a range of types of meat like sausage, ground beef and bacon, but can also have plenty of one type on meat. Whatever type of meat you add, if you top it off with cheese and tomato puree, you’ll have a great hearty pizza.

5. BBQ chicken

The idea of having BBQ chicken pizza was a strange one back in 1985 when it came out. However today this is not the case. BBQ chicken, onion, cheese and BBQ sauce is a classic pizza.

6. Supreme

As the name suggests, supreme is a type of pizza loaded with things like pepperoni, ground beef, mushroom, onion, capsicum and pineapple. If you have a great appetite, supreme will take care of that. This pizza is a great way to take in a good amount of both protein and veggies all at once and it is definitely a great deal.

Falafel is a Middle Eastern food that originated in Egypt. Falafel is made up mostly of ground chickpeas, although traditionally it was made up of fava beans.

Falafel is most commonly served in pita bread with hummus, or on a bed on the salad with tahini sauce or as part of a mezze.

Is falafel healthy?

Chickpea falafel is good for you because chickpeas are packed with vitamins and minerals. Their health benefits include being high in protein, improving digestion, aiding weight management and decreasing the risk of disease. Because it is high in protein, falafel is also a great meat replacement for vegetarians and vegans.

How to make falafel: healthy falafel recipe

You can make falafel at home with this easy-to-follow recipe.

Ingredients (serves 20 falafel balls):

  • 1 cup dried chickpeas
  • 1 ½ large onion, chopped (1 for garnish)
  • 1 tomato, chopped
  • 1 green capsicum, chopped
  • 4 cloves garlic, chopped
  • 2 tablespoons fresh parsley, chopped
  • 2 tablespoons fresh cilantro, chopped
  • ½ teaspoon dried red pepper
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon cumin
  • Vegetable oil
  • 4-6 teaspoon plain flour
  • Pita bread
  • Tahini sauce

Method (prepare the day before):

  1. In a large bowl, put the dried chickpeas and cover with water so that the chickpeas are submerged by at least 2 inches. Leave to soak overnight. (You can also make falafel with canned chickpeas.)
  2. The next day, blend together the chickpeas, chopped onion, parsley, cilantro, garlic, cumin, hot red pepper and salt.
  3. Add the baking powder and plain flour to the mix so it’s no longer sticky.
  4. Using your hands, make 20 round balls out of the mixture.
  5. Put the balls into the refrigerator and let cool for 3 hours.
  6. In a large wok, heat the vegetable oil and lightly fry the falafel balls for a few minutes on each side, until brown.
  7. Serve by putting the falafel into pitas, and garnish with chopped onion, tomato and tahini sauce.

Cooking falafel is so easy that anyone can do it! Try it for yourself and indulge in the traditional Middle Eastern cuisine at home!

What is in Tabbouleh?

Tabbouleh is traditionally made up of finely chopped parsley, tomatoes, onion, mint, bulgur wheat and seasoned with salt, pepper, olive oil and lemon juice.

  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh mint

  • ¼ cup olive oil
  • ¼ cup fresh lemon juice
  • 1 cup boiling water

Method (45-50 minutes – can be prepared the day before):

  1. Mix the garlic in a bowl with the lemon juice and olive oil.
  2. In another bowl, put the bulgur wheat and cover with boiling water. Let the bulgur stand until the water has been absorbed (approximately 15 minutes).
  3. When the water is absorbed, add the finely chopped onion, parsley, mint and tomatoes.
  4. Add in the oil, garlic and lemon juice, and toss all together.
  5. Season with salt and pepper to taste, and let stand, chilled, until flavours have blended in (approximately 30 minutes)

To save money, you can make the Tabbouleh salad in bulk and store it in the fridge, dipping into it throughout the week.

Tabbouleh salad can be enjoyed on its own, or as a side dish to other ingredients like meat, falafel, bread or hummus.

However you choose to eat your Tabbouleh salad, you can rest assured knowing it’s an incredibly healthy option full of fresh ingredients and is incredibly tasty. Better yet, it is cheap to prepare!

Lebanese cuisine is amongst the freshest and tastiest in the world – so why wouldn’t you start introducing it to your own kitchen? Grilled meats like shawarma, gorgeous pastries like baklava, even the classic combination of pita bread and babaghannouj, are all memorable Lebanese dishes that you can serve right at home.


The Lebanese Essentials

Before you embark on your Lebanese odyssey, there are some basic ingredients that you should have close to hand.

Olives: Olive oil, and olives as they are, heavily present in Lebanese menus. There are over 170,000 olive producers in Lebanon because there is clearly a market for them! Olives and olive oil help to lower our ‘bad’ cholesterol and raise our ‘good’ cholesterol.

Onions & Garlic: Onions are an integral part of Lebanese stews, and garlic is undoubtedly the most common flavouring. You can find it in dips, sauces, pesto and stews.

Lemons: Lemons and lemon juice are another crucial components of Lebanese food. You’ll need copious lemon juice to make a truly tangy, tasty hummus or fresh tabouli.

Herbs & Spices: The essential herbs and spices you’ll need for authentic Lebanese dishes include mint, coriander, cinnamon, sumac, and parsley.

Easy Lebanese Meals

Amongst the best dishes to attempt as a beginner are:

Kafta – Lebanese mince meat skewers made of lamb or beef.

Babaghannouj – creamy eggplant dip that’s perfect with a piece of soft pita bread.

Tabouli – the vegetarian salad that consists of finely chopped parsley, Bulgar wheat, tomatoes, mint, onion, with lemon juice and olive oil mixed through (delicious!)

Shawarma – juicy, well-seasoned grilled meats.

Tabouli Recipe

Ingredients (Serves 4)

  • 1 handful of mint leaves
  • 1 bunch of flat leaf parsley
  • 1-2 lemons
  • 2 tbsp fine bulgar wheat
  • 3-4 diced tomatoes
  • 2 white onions finely chopped
  • Salt & pepper
  • Olive oil
Method
  • Finely shred the parsley and mint.
  • Juice the lemons and pour over the bulgur wheat and set aside to soften for ten minutes.
  • Combine the parsley, mint, soften bulgar wheat, tomato and onion in a bowl.
  • Season with salt & pepper, add olive oil and mix.
  • Add more olive oil and/or lemon juice according to taste.
