Each pizza has equal no of breads and equal no of toppings. This means that pizza can be a combination of
1 bread (can be chosen among 2) and 1topping ( can be chosen among 6 )
OR
can be a combination of
2 breads (can be chosen among 2) and 2 toppings( can be chosen among 6 )

=

2C1*6C1 + 2C2*6C2 = 27

Yes, the wording of this question is suspect.
"an equal number of kinds of topping and an equal number of kinds of breads" - implies each pizza has say 1 kind of bread and 2 kinds of toppings or 2 kinds of breads and 3 kinds of toppings etc. In each case, the number of pizzas one can make would be different.

I certainly could not conclude that it means " the number of kinds of breads is the same as the number of kinds of toppings"
