Tandoori Pizza

This is an Indian twist on Italian Pizza.I got bored of the regular pizza and one day decided to add some desi flavors to it and the results were pretty delicious.It has vegetables smothered in tandoori sauce baked on an pizza crust to golden delicious perfection.


1/4 cup brocolli -cut in small florets
1/4 cup frozen corn kernels
1/2 of mesium red capsicum-cut lengthwise
5-6 mushrooms-cut lengthwise
1 Cup shredded mozzrella cheese
3 tbsp tomato ketchup

For pizza dough
  • 2 -1/2 cup refined wheat flour(Maida)
  • 2 tsp dry yeast
  • 2 tsp olive/vegetable oil
  • 1 tsp sugar
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 cup water

For the tandoori sauce

  • 1 Cup tomato puree
  • 2 tsp ginger garlic paste
  • 1/4 cup milk
  • 1 tsp kasoori methi
  • 1 tsp tandoori masala(readymade)
  • 1/4 tsp red chilli pd
  • salt to taste
  • 2 tsp oil


Preheat oven to 225 deg C.

In a cup combine yeast and sugar with warm water and keep aside for 5-7 minutes until yeast gets frothy.

In a bowl mix refined wheat flour ,salt oil and knead the dough with warm water mixture fronm above.Rest for 15-20 minutes.

Meanwhile heat oil in a pan,add ginger garlic paste,fry for 1 minute.Add tomato puree andcook for 6-7 minutes till it thickens slightly.Add kasoori methi,cook for 1 minute,then add milk,tandoori masala,red chilli pd and salt.Cook till sauce is of desired thickness to spread on pizza.Toss in all the vegetables and put sauce off the flame.

Roll out pizza dough into desired shape.You can oil hands if dough feels too sticky.I shaped pizza dough in rectangle shape by putting the dough in non stick baking sheet and shaped by hands .Lightly oil the dough with hands and bake at 225 degree C for 5 minutes.

Take out pizza from oven and spread 3 tbsp of tomato ketchup on it and cover with grated mozzrella cheese.Pour vegetables in sauce over it evenly.

Bake at 225 degree C for 15-20 minutes till pizza edges turn golden.Serve hot.
