Tandoori Paneer Pizza

Thanks all of you for your responses to the two questions that I had asked in my last post. I enjoyed reading  all your comments and descriptions on both the tandoori sauce guessing game and how puffed rice is made.Amy shared a youtube link in the previous post on how the Chinese make puffed rice. It was a very interesting video, thanks Amy for sharing it with me. I have uploaded the video here if any of you are interested in seeing this video. 

For those of you who played along on the guessing game, the title of this post has already given away the answer on what I did with the tandoori sauce. My blog friends Deepa, Harini-Jaya and Sowmya, you can all take a bow because you all guessed the answer correctly. When I visited India last year, I tasted a tandoori pizza at a local Pizza hut that I really liked. I have been wanting to recreate that pizza since I got back. This is my take on that pizza. This pizza turned out fabulously, the tandoori sauce and the paneer added a very unique and interesting flavor to the pizza . Since I made the sauce ahead, it also took very little time to assemble this pizza. So if your weekend plans include pizza, do give this pizza a try and let me know what you think about it :-)

Ingredients and Method to make Tandoori Pizza
1 red onion cut lengthwise
1 green bell pepper (capsicum) deseeded and cut into thin long strips
2 cups of paneer cubes (Indian cottage cheese)  (Here is how you can make your own paneer)
2 cups of other vegetables like peas and corn (optional)
Shredded cheese as required
Tandoori sauce as required ( I used approx half the quantity of sauce made as per this recipe)
Pizza base as required ( I used approximately 3- 8 inch oat wheat pizza base made as per this recipe )
Red pepper flakes (optional)

Preheat oven to 425 deg F

Apply tandoori sauce on the pizza base, followed by the shredded cheese, toppings and paneer cubes.

Place in the oven for approximately 20 mins or until the paneer and cheese have light brown spots on top of it.
