Kadai Paneer Pizza

Pizza – we all love it… Do you know someone who doesn’t? There are so many ways of making a pizza. But have you tried a pizza in an Indian style? YUM. Enough said.

While in India we mostly had takeaway pizza, which was totally customised to suit our taste buds. Here in Melbourne, I started missing those flavours that I loved in a pizza. So I started making them at home. Today I will share with you the recipe of my favourite pizza… Kadai Paneer Pizza! The flavours and aroma of freshly ground Indian spices paired with cheese – food heaven! This pizza takes a bit more time to make when compared to regular ones, but trust me… it’s totally worth the effort. I prefer making the pizza base at home, but store bought ones can be used as well. 





For Pizza Base:
All purpose flour – 2 cup
Dry yeast – 2 tsp
Sugar – 1 tsp
Olive oil – 2 tbsp
Salt – 1 tsp
Milk powder – 1 tsp
Warm water  – ¾ cup approximately

For topping:

  4. Place the dough on a lightly dusted surface and knead again for 2-3 minutes
  5. Divide into 4 balls, cover with a cling wrap and rest again for 10 minutes

  8. Brush the pizza with sauce from kadai paneer and then spoon in the kadai paneer. Spread evenly
  9. Top with mozzarella cheese
  10. Lightly brush the ends of pizza with some olive oil / butter
