Paneer Tikka Pizza step by step
- Preparing the pizza base Warm 1 cup water in a bowl. Stir and dissolve the ½ tsp sugar in it. sprinkle the yeast and stir. Cover and keep this mixture for 10-12 minutes at room temperature. After 10-12 minutes when the yeast mixture bubbles and froths, add 1 cup flour, salt and olive oil. Stir the mixture well. Then add another cup of flour and stir again. The flour mixture would begin to leave the sides of the flour. Add the last cup of flour and begin to knead the bowl..
- Working with your hands, knead the mixture, till you get a soft, smooth and elastic dough. If the dough appears dry, then add some water. If the dough is little sticky, it's alright. But if too sticky then sprinkle some flour and continue to knead. Rub some water all over the pizza bread dough and keep in a covered bowl for 1 to 2 hours..
- Preparing the paneer tikka for pizza Whisk the yoghurt in a bowl till smooth and creamy. Add all the ginger-garlic paste, carom seeds, salt, lemon juice and all the Spice powders mentioned above. Check the taste of the marination and add more salt or lemon juice or the spice powders if required..
- Chop the paneer into cubes. Dice the onions, bell pepper and tomatoes. Add the paneer cubes and the diced veggies to the yoghurt sauce marinade..
- Fold in gently so that the paneer and veggies are evenly coated with the marinade. Cover and keep aside for minimum for 1 hour at room temperature. If keeping for more than 2 hours, then refrigerate..
- Assembling the pizza When the dough has doubled up and nicely leavened, then divide the dough into 2-3 parts. 2 parts of the pizza dough will give you a medium pizza and 3 parts will give you a small pizza. You can refrigerate the remaining dough if not using it immediately..
