My Peppy Paneer Pizza Recipe

Posted by Shravan
Pizza is one of my favourite dishes. I can eat a pizza anytime. Pizzas are filling, heavy and taste awesome as well. Everyone likes to have a pizza- right from kids to older generation. One of the favourite pizza which I like is the one having Paneer as topping. In this post, I am sharing my recipe of Paneer pizza which I am calling as Peppy Paneer Pizza. I prepare this regularly at home from time to time. It’s easy to make and is relished by everyone.

Paneer - 1 Packet (200gms)
Pizza Bases- 3 (You can buy readymade pizza bases from bakery chains. I buy them from Monginis)
Black Pepper (Powdered)- 1/2 tbsp
Salt- to taste
Pizza Sauce - 1 cup
Cheese (Mozarella is preferred) - 3/4 cup grated
Yogurt - 1 cup
Tandoori Masala -1 Packet
Capsicum - 1/2 cup cubed
Onion - 1/2 cup cubed
Oregano - 1/2 tbsp
Chilli Flakes - 1/2 tbsp


Preparing the Paneer

First, let us prepare and cook the Paneer. Mix Tandoori Masala and yogurt in a big bowl. Add Paneer cubes and mix well. Add 1 tbsp pepper powder. Add salt if required. Make sure all Paneer cubes are coated with the mixture. Avoid mixing vigorously so as to keep the Paneer cubes intact. Keep it for around 30 minutes and then gently fry the Paneer pieces on a non stick tawa till the Paneer is cooked. Take care not to cook them too much or burn them.

Making the Pizza

1. Take a pizza base. Apply pizza sauce on it generously. You can buy pizza sauce of any good brands from supermarkets. You can also make homemade pizza sauce, if you prefer.
2. Put a few Paneer cubes which have been cooked (as explained earlier) on the pizza bases coated with sauce.
3. Add a few capsicum and onion cubes on each of the pizza bases.
4. Cover the pizza with grated cheese.
5. Preheat the oven at around 180OC for 8-10mins. Place the pizzas on a rack and put them in the oven. When the cheese completely melts, take them out.
6. Sprinkle oregano powder and chilli flakes on each of the pizzas.
7. Serve with additional separate tomato ketchup, oregano, chilli flakes and a glass of juice or cold coffee, as your prefer :)
