Imagine waking up to the notification, “Pizza topping is not pizza, so will attract a higher GST levy.” As a full-time pizza lover, I can say I’m personally offended. So, according to the new rules, pizza toppings will be classified differently and will be charged at a higher 18% GST.
What exactly does this mean for you as a consumer? It simply means pizza is getting costlier. The real math is to be done by the pizza outlets.

Sell pizza at 5% gst
Deliver pizza at 18%
Pack pizza in 12% gst boxes
Add Cheese & frozen meats at 12%
Provide oregano flakes at 5%
Now add pizza toppings at 18% gst,
While the fresh vegetables added in the topping has no gst.
But paneer has 12% gst! pic.twitter.com/00X4soqwj8

If someone is going to apply for a job in Dominos, they will most probably have to give a Dominos Entrance Exam now 🤦🏻♀️
From The DEE (Domino’s entrance exam): A customer orders a 10 inch base with tomato sauce, barbecue chicken, 4 rings of onion and 5 basil leaves. Assuming normal mozzarella distribution, calculate the total GST. https://t.co/AmEgbs5I3t— Kajol Srinivasan (@LOLrakshak) March 15, 2022

Already pizza in restaurant, pizza base, pizza delivered home.. all attract different GST rates.
Basically, DO NOT EAT PIZZA 😒 https://t.co/YJxiX3WN5I
