What do you do when you plan to make a Pizza? Do you start by heating the pan or switching on the microwave first or preparing with basic ingredients? Of course, you have to start from the very beginning. You take the base and cut out veggies for the topping. You then spread the required
ingredients on the pizza base and put it on a pan or in the microwave to make it crispy and tasty. The end result is a yummy, tasty pizza on your plate, closely meeting the requirements of “ideal” cooking. Think of this entire process as the basis for shaping the future of children in the top-tier city schools in Pune, Mumbai, Bangalore, Chennai, etc.
