India meets Italy in this unique Tandoori Paneer 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. The topping is sautéed on a tava to give it a tandoori finish, while the assembled pizza is baked in an oven, as always, to melt the cheese and achieve the right texture.
