Uttapa deserves to be called the indian pizza as it lends itself to several toppings, the most popular being crisp cooked onions. You may also try other combinations such as onion and tomatoes. Usually vendors spread the topping over the uthappam batter and press it in well with their wet fingers. But, to avoid hurting your fingers, use a spatula if you're a novice!
