Paneer Tikka Pizza Recipe

Print Friendly, PDF & Email

Paneer Tikka Pizza is an Indian style pizza where the pizza base is topped with paneer tikka mixture, veggies and cheese and baked to golden crispy perfection.

Paneer Tikka is an Indian dish made from chunks of Paneer (Indian Cottage Cheese) marinated in curd & spices and grilled. This way the soft and cheesy paneer cubes get imbibed with the delicious spicy flavors.

Paneer Tikka Pizza is a vegetarian delicacy and also serves as a good starter. This pizza variety is rich in flavour and if you love Indian food, you will in all probability like this Indian twist of the Pizza.

I have not posted the recipe to make the Pizza Crust here and will be posting that soon. Also I use a homemade Pizza Sauce for spreading on the Pizza base, but it is also readily available in stores.
