In the heart of little India – Edison, New Jersey, Papa Pancho combines Italian brick oven-style pies with Indian ingredients and toppings to create mouth-watering pizzas
Papa Pancho was started with an aim to popularize Indian food beyond it’s traditional scope. The idea took seed when Kamal Arora, CEO of Arora Hospitality Group, visited Naples, Italy on a family vacation. He noticed that the pies of true Neapolitan pizza were very unlike the crisp-crusted New York-style or hefty Deep Dish Chicago-style pies. They were more akin to the Indian Naan bread that is almost synonymous with Indian cuisine.
While in Italy, Kamal talked to pizzaioli (pizza chefs), studied wood-fueled brick ovens that require a minimum temperature of 800°F, watched dough being stretched and topped, and imagined Indian flavors and toppings on them. Once back in the US, he hired a team of experts to work on his idea and Papa Pancho started taking shape.
