An Indian Twist to an Italian Favourite!

It was Saturday and we had done quite a bit of mindless, impulsive shopping. Husby's face was growing longer and sadder as the day went and I still hadn't taxed him with the weekly grocery shopping yet! After a snail paced episode of shopping at the local supermarket, husby darling just about had enough patience to push the cart (normally) towards our car without crashing it into some poor unsuspecting shopper in frustration. I tagged along to keep up with him while I scanned the longish receipt to see if we were charged right for everything. As we loaded the boot of our car with the many bags, I tried cheering him up by promising to make pizza for dinner. He didn't seem like he cared much. But when the pizza was made (and the kitchen smelt so good!), cut and served with some yummy garlic and cheese bread, he finally smiled, ear to ear :) 

Here's what I did - 

Make at home Pizza with Indian flavours. I can't help it! I'm Indian and I love the masalas :) 

  • store bought pizza base
  • tomato sauce/ketchup - 1 tbspn
  • toppings (use as desired) - thinly sliced onion, thinly sliced capsicum, diced paneer , thinly sliced jalapeno chillies (de-seeded to save the mouth from catching fire), grated cheese, chopped coriander
  • spices - (use as desired) paprika, chilli flakes, curry powder, salt
Method - 

  • Preheat oven to 200 deg Celsius
  • Spread tomato sauce over the pizza base and load it with toppings
  • Sprinkle on the spices 
  • Bake for about 10 mins (might vary from oven to oven)
  • Serve hot with more ketchup and chilli sauce
It was so much better than as good as the ones we usually order in, honestly.
