5 street-food inspired ideas to update your pizza menu

Just because you’re running a pizza company doesn’t mean that you can’t embrace the street food scene from across the world in your menu.

Every country has its own special and unique street food scene, from the vibrant streets of Mexico, to the warming and spicy Indian markets—there’s a lot of different foods and recipes that you could use as inspiration.

If you’ve been thinking about revamping your pizza menu to incorporate more of these cuisines, we think that you might like some of the ideas below.

Here are favourite street-food inspired ideas for any pizza company.

    •    Mexican-style tacos and burritos

Mexican food is always a hit, and many of the ingredients that are staples in this cuisine can easily be added to other meals—like pizza.

Take some pulled pork or chicken, tomato sauce, guacamole, cheese and jalapenos, and you have the taste of Mexico for yourself. It couldn’t be easier, and is interesting enough to get people excited about their next pizza takeaway.

    •    Greek Gyros

Gyros is an extremely popular street food in Greece and is made from meat cooked on a rotisseries with salad and tzatziki, all wrapped up in a flatbread.

Substituting the flatbread for your pizza base, you could easily add all of the ingredients to your pizza for a tasty Mediterranean feel to revamp your menu.

    •    American cheeseburgers

Cheeseburgers may be everyone’s favourite street food, so it makes sense that people would like it just as much if all of the ingredients were put on a pizza.

Take some marinated mince, onions and cheese sauce and you have the perfect tasty treat!

    •    Asian bao buns

Bao buns are becoming incredibly popular at the moment, so it’s a good idea to keep up with the trends and find a way to incorporate similar flavours into your pizza menu.

Lots of bao bun fillings consist of things like sticky pork, steamed vegetables, sriracha and crispy aromatic duck, all of which aren’t things that you’d normally expect to find on a pizza—which is exactly why it could be a great, unexpected addition to your pizza menu.

    •    Indian samosas

Our final idea is to incorporate the aromatic spices of Indian samosas to your Indian food. Indian takeaways are the most popular in the UK, so finding a way to incorporate it into your pizza menu will always be beneficial.

Try adding some spiced chicken with curried vegetables to your pizza, and we’re sure it will go down well with your customers.
