Save recipe


  1. For the pizza base:
  2. 1 cup plain flour
  3. 11/2 teaspoons yeast
  4. 2 teaspoons yogurt
  5. 1 tablespoon oil
  6. 1/2 teaspoon sugar
  7. 1/4 teaspoon salt
  8. Other Ingredients:
  9. 1 small onion, finely chopped
  10. 1 teaspoon finely chopped garlic
  11. 2 large tomatoes, finely chopped
  12. 1 tablespoon tomato ketchup
  13. 1 cup paneer, cut into small cubes
  14. 1 teaspoon finely chopped green chillies
  15. 1/4 teaspoon red chilli powder
  16. 2 tablespoons oil
  17. 1 cup grated mozzarella cheese
  18. 1/4 teaspoon chilli flakes for garnishing (optional)
  19. Salt to taste


  1. Combine all the ingredients for pizza in a large bowl. Add about 1/3 cup of luke warm water. Apply oil to your hands and knead a soft dough. Cover the bowl and keep it at a warm place for 2 hours.
  2. To prepare the topping, heat oil in a pan. Add onions and garlic. Saute them till golden brown. Add the tomatoes, red chilli powder and salt. Cook till the moisture gets evaporated and oil starts separating from the mixture. Add the tomato sauce, paneer cubes and green chillies. Mix well. The topping is ready.
  3. After letting the dough rest for 2 hours, it will rise and become almost double. Divide the dough in 2 equal parts. Roll each part of the dough into a ball. Place the dough ball on a dusted surface and roll it into a thick disc almost double the thickness of a roti. Prick holes in the rolled disc (pizza base) with the help of a fork.
  4. Heat a thick bottomed non-stick pan and grease it. Place the rolled disc/pizza base on the heated pan and reduce the heat to medium-low. Let the pizza base turn light brown from one side and flip it over using a spatula.
  5. Spread the paneer topping generously on the pizza base. Scatter grated cheese over the paneer topping. Cover the pan with a lid and cook the pizza on low heat till the cheese gets melted and the other side turns light brown and slightly crispy.
  6. Repeat the same process for the second dough ball.
  7. Garnish with red chilli flakes and serve hot.
