The exterior of 1st Choice Pizza & Curry is somewhat non-descript; they let their unique blend of Italian and Indian foods define who they are. The fragrant spices of traditional Indian biryanis and curries mix with the smell of fresh pizza inside. Indian dishes come with add-ons such as boneless chicken or seasoned vegetables, and pizzas can get topped with barbecue sauce and chicken. There’s even a build-your-own gluten-free pizza option, which you can deck out with artichoke hearts and pineapple. Speciality drinks like the mango lassi and desert options like gulab jamun and soft serve in eight flavors round out the eclectic menu.
And while the Elk Grove eatery does have two separate menus for their two main food types, they also offer a handful of fusion items. Try the mango tango pizza, which has spiced mangos and spicy mango curry sauce paired with mozzarella cheese and cannolis; wash it down with a cold beer or a glass of wine.
