Adding another dimension to a classic fast food dish

Already popular in Europe, the US and other countries in Asia, cone-shaped pizzas have arrived in Cambodia.

Ith “Lucy” Sovannary, 34, the owner of Lucy’s Cone Pizza, which opened this month, said she adapted the general concept after seeing them sold in China and Singapore but made up her own fillings and sauce recipes.

Sovannary said the $2.20 pizza cones were easier to eat than traditional pizzas – including while walking – and perfect for customers who wanted a smaller serving size.

Each one contains a mixture of vegetables, cheese and meat – seafood, chicken or pork – and is topped with a cheesy crust on top.

Sovannary said her family was already big fans of flat pizzas and adapting her recipes into cone-form was easy – she just needed a special oven and cone holder imported from China.

Varieties include Hawaiian, barbecue chicken, seafood, red curry chicken and tom yum.

“There are a lot of shops in Cambodia that serve pizzas, but they are not in a cone shape,” she said. “Lucy’s Cone Pizza has a distinct shape and flavour of ketchup and barbecue sauce – they are homemade and local taste.

“The real inspiration is to create Cambodian brand name pizza, without buying a franchise or brand name from other countries,” she added.

Lucy’s Cone Pizza is located in Street 408. Tel: 077 607 195.
