Saag is an authentic Punjabi dish that needs no introduction. Made from leafy greens such as spinach and mustard greens, it is a staple in most homes. To prepare the classic dish, the greens are finely chopped and cooked with various spices, including garlic, ginger, and green chillies. The mixture is typically simmered until it forms a thick, flavourful stew and is usually served with makki ki roti, another Punjabi classic. While we are sure that many of you would have relished this delight, have you ever tasted a pizza topped with saag? If you have not, there is a video circulating on Instagram that features the recipe for this saag pizza. However, the video is going viral for all the wrong reasons. After viewing the video, the foodie community is openly expressing their disapproval of this culinary experiment.
The video demonstrates the preparation of a saag pizza by evenly spreading a layer of saag on a pizza base. After that, a generous amount of cheese is added to the top before the pizza is placed in the oven. After cooking, the pizza is sliced and served.
