Spicy paneer pizza

paneer-pizza
I had heard so much about grilled paneer pizzas which are very popular in Mumbai. I wanted to try it for a long time, but when I made this paneer biryani, I thought of using those marinated paneer pieces on a pizza. I had some bread dough in freezer which I had frozen last week. Thats how this pizza was born.

You could use any pizza base. But I tried a new dough this time. It is mostly wheat based. I am not a big fan of wheat base, as it has very different taste. But because it is good for health, compared to that made with all purpose flour(maida), I will stick to this recipe hereafter.

According to V, this is one of the best pizzas I have ever baked :). We had a hearty pizza night yesterday.

Pizza base(Makes two large pizzas):
1 and 1/2 cup wheat flour
1 and 1/2 cup all purpose flour
2 and 1/2 tea spns active dry yeast
2 tbl spn butter(at room temperature)
1/4 cup olive oil
1/2 tea spn sugar
1/2 cup water
1 cup milk
1 tea spn salt

Method:
In about 1/2 cup luke warm water, add sugar and yeast. Let it get active.
Add all other ingredients and flours (except milk). Mix and gradually add milk. Make a dough. If needed, use extra milk. Knead for 5minutes. Transfer it to a large bowl and keep it aside for about 2hrs till it doubles in volume.
Make two equal sized pieces (you can freeze one if not using).
Roll into a base.

Toppings:
1 cup marinated paneer
1/2 cup corn
Sun dried tomato
Dried basil
1 cup Parmesan cheese + mozzarella cheese (I mixed both)

Method:
Grill or bake or shallow fry the marinated paneer pieces(slightly undercook the pieces, they get completely cooked after baking).
Heat a little olive oil and stir fry corn, let it cook for few minutes.

Assembling the pizza:
Preheat the oven at 400F for 10 mins.
Spread the cheese on the base.
