Paneer Pizza



Paneer Pizza

Pizza is my kids favorite and I often make pizza at home. Some times,when I do not have pizza dough,I tweak the recipe a bit and use naan or bagel as the crust. In this recipe I have used naan instead of the regular pizza dough and is light and crispy. This is a fusion variety but still tastes exotic.It has with paneer and touch of tikka masala. In addition to this it has the regular pizza tomato based sauce and a cheese blend of Mozzarella,Asiago Romano and Parmesan. This is a vegetarian version but you can also use meat or pepperoni as topping.

Ingredients
Garlic naan/regular naan- 2
Pizza sauce- 4 tbs
Cheese shredded- 1/2 cup
Sliced onion- 1/2 an onion
Thinly sliced bell pepper- 1/2
Sun dried tomatoes- 3-4 pieces ( optional)
Olive oil- a few drops

To marinate the paneer
Paneer- 3/4-1 cup cubed
Tikka masala- 1/2 tsp
( store brought or a blend of the following
a pinch of turmeric,pepper powder, chilly powder,
cumin powder,garam masala and chaat masala)
Ginger garlic paste- 1/3 tsp
Yogurt- 1 tsp


Cut paneer into cubes. Mix all the ingredients listed under 'to marinate' with the paneer and keep aside for an hour or in the fridge for three to four hours. Drizzle a few drops of oil in a pan and slightly toast the paneer to till it is slightly golden brown on the outside (or put in the oven at 400 degree F). In the same pan slightly saute onions and bell pepper for about two minutes.Brush the naan  with olive oil. Spread a thin layer of pizza sauce over the naan. Arrange fried paneer, sauteed onion,  bell pepper, sun dried tomato( or any vegetables of your choice) and sprinkle cheese on top. Bake in a preheated oven at 400  degree F for about 10 minutes or till the cheese on top melts and is slightly bubbly.

Try this,
Hope you will all enjoy!
