More than just a fruit, jackfruit can be enjoyed in many ways. Malaysians love enjoying jackfruit fresh or even deep-fried! Vegans have been enjoying jackfruit as it's said to have a similar texture to meat. The newest cempedak-based dish to enter the field? Cempedak pizza! (We apologise in advance to all the Italian nonnas out there).
US Pizza Malaysia is offering cempedak pizza for a limited time only. The fresh and sweet jackfruit complements the savoury taste of cheese so well. So if you're an adventurous foodie, then the cempedak pizza should be on your bucket list!
Other cempedak dishes available at US Pizza include cempedak bolognese pasta where the sweet and savoury flavour of the cempedak and tomato-based sauce give a unique twist to the classic Italian dish.
