India meets Italy in this unique paneer tikka pizza! An assortment of veggies is first soaked in a richly flavoured marinade, and then sautéed to intensify the flavour, before being added as a desi style topping to thin crust pizza bases. Finally, the topping is sautéed on a tava to give it a tandoori finish.

You will enjoy the authentic pizza sauce with the traditional tandoori paneer. This Indian style paneer pizza is also baked in an oven, as always, to melt the cheese and achieve the right texture.

If you wish to make the pizza from scratch, then we suggest you make the pizza base at home too! We would recommend the use of thin crust pizza base for homemade paneer pizza. Make your choice between maida based thin crust pizza base and whole wheat pizza base.

Tips for tandoori paneer pizza. 1. Use fresh paneer for best results. Learn how to make paneer at home. 2. The curd used to make the marinade has to be thick. You can also make use of hung curd. 3. Always check if 1 to 2 pieces of the marinated vegetables are getting cooked on the tava. If you think they are not getting cooked well, add little besan and mix well and then cook. 4. The tomatoes have to be deseeded for best results. 5. We have used mozzarella cheese for gooey texture, but you can replace it with processed cheese.
