Paneer Pizza

This is one of my favorite pizzas, I had it first at Pizza Hut in India and fell in love with it. Once I came back to US, I just had to have to so this is my take on it. You can make as spicy or mild as you like by adjusting the level of spice. Every time I make it, its a hit.
If you know how to make your own pizza dough it will taste better.
Hope you like it as much as I do.

  • Store bought pizza dough
  • 1 large onion
  • 2 bell peppers ( i used red and green)
  • 75 to 100 gram Paneer (12 to 15 medium pieces)
  • 1 tsp Tandoori masala
  • 1 tsp Jeera powder
  • 1 tsp Garam Masala
  • 2 tsp Chillie powder
  • ½ to ¾ cup shredded mozzarella Cheese
  • 1/2 cup of store bought basil pesto
  • Salt to taste
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • Pre heat the oven at at 400 degrees.
  • Cut the paneer into cubes and toss it with the tandoori masala and let it sit for half and hour.
  • Cut the onions and bell pepper into long strips and toss it with olive oil along with the jeera powder, garam masala, chillie powder and salt.
  • Once the oven in ready put the vegetables and the paneer in an oven safe tray and put in for about 10 to 15 mins.
  • While the vegetables are in the oven, roll out the pizza dough and spread it with the pesto. Make sure the pizza is completely covered with the pesto. When the vegetables are done add the vegetables on the pizza.
  • Cover the vegetables with the cheese and bake for another 10 mins.
  • Sprinkle the top with chillie flakes.
  • Serve hot.

About Me

I just love to cook and everything that goes along with food. I cook at home most of the time but I do enjoy eating out once in a while too. I have 2 blogs, one with all my recipes and the other one is all the places that we eat at. My husband and I love to eat and go out. The other day I was looking for a new phone so we were doing our rounds to all the service providers around our house, before we can decide which one to go with. When we went to the Sprint store close to our house we realized that we even though we have been in this area for the past 4 years we have never been to that strip mall. We found a pizza place that looked really good from the outside. That's when we made a New Year's resolution of eating out once a week and try a new restaurant each time. And here I will write my thoughts of the place and what I think of it.
