Auro pizza, White Town, Pondicherry

‘Auro pizza’ is a nondescript tiny eatery in the beautiful White town of Pondicherry that serves delicious wood-fired thin crust pizzas. I’m glad we decided to eat there even after getting discouraged by the looks of it.

They had a good variety of toppings and we asked for a Feta Chicken pizza and a Funghi pizza.
