The video by user @foodie_bhuro opens with a food vendor spreading a red sauce over a small pizza base. He adds a few raisins and cashew nuts on top. He then cuts the pizza into six slices and places it in the oven to cook. Once done, he grates a generous amount of cheese over the pizza. He finishes it off with a garnish of extra raisins and cashews. The blogger has mentioned that this pizza costs Rs. 180, which is overpriced, according to him.
