Spicy 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

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.

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

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.
Spread basil.
Now spread the paneer, sundried tomato, corn. Bake at 400F for about 15mins or till it is done.
Serve hot.

    A healthy pizza…now this is what I want to make on a Saturday evening.

  • Rutu March 18, 2009, 12:24 pm

    My absolute favorite!
    We never miss to make this kind of a pizza during our pizza nights / days :D I landed up trying it myself too, just adding two of my favorite things, marinated paneer and pizza. Though I do use pizza sauce (also home made).

    Also I see you’re not a fan of wheat base – I would agree if you had to buy it from outside, but as a suggestion try the golden temple brand (the white one) it makes a perfect pizza base (no maida needed!)

    hi shilpa,
    it looks so yummy!!!!.one of my friend has a brand new pizza stone so,she made a pizza on that &it did’nt come out good.its becos of the stone or dough(store bought)?
    which one is the best? a stone or something else?

    Shilpa: I use pizza stone. I have no idea why your pizza didn’t come out well

  • Aruna March 26, 2009, 6:21 pm

    My younger son has been asking me since morning to bake a pizza. Must try this with wheat base. Both are paneer lovers. I am sure this one will be a super hit. After seeing your pizza stone in earlier post, got one, but not made much of pizza since then.
