Indian Pizza Recipe: Tomato Chutney Pizza

Indian Pizza Recipe: Tomato Chutney Pizza Recipe

Since I had my daughter, I haven't had a lot of time to cook so I got some ready-made pizza dough from Trader Joe's. instead of using regular tomato sauce I used indian tomato chutney to make the dish more flavorful. I topped it with fried paneer, smoked goat cheddar cheese, mozzarella and parmesan. This is not your average four-cheese pizza! 

Ingredients

Yields: 6 servings

½ (16-ounce) package paneer cheese (see tips), store-bought
2 cups tomato chutney (click on the link for the recipe), at room temperature
2 (16-ounce) packages garlic and herb pizza dough, store-bought
1 tablespoon all-purpose flour, as needed
¼ cup smoked goat milk Cheddar cheese, finely diced
1 fresh mozzarella ball, thinly sliced
¼ cup Parmesan cheese, freshly shaved
¼ red onion, thinly sliced
2 tablespoons canola oil
1 tablespoon cilantro, for garnish


Directions

Preheat the oven to 400°F.

Prepping the paneer cheese: Cut the paneer cheese into ½-inch cubes. Heat the canola oil in a pan. Add the cheese cubes and pan-fry until they are golden brown. Transfer to a paper towel, leaving as much oil as possible in the pan.


Assembling the pizza:

Punch the air bubbles of the dough. Form 6 6-ich disks using a rolling pin. Dust the dough with additional flour. Place the almost-shaped pizza on a pan. Dimple the dough with your fingers to shape the dough.

Meanwhile, place a pizza stone in the oven. Let the shaped pizza rest for another 15 minutes. It will increase in volume a little. Sprinkle some cornmeal (if used) on the pizza stone. Transfer 3 pizza dough disks using a pizza peel (or a very large spatula) to the hot stone. Dimple the dough one more time with your fingers as it will slightly increase in volume.

Spread the tomato chutney. Layer the red onion, fried paneer, smoked goat milk Cheddar and Mozzarella cheeses onto the dough and sprinkle with Parmesan shavings.

Bake for 8-10 minutes.

Repeat the same procedure for the second batch of pizzas.

Sprinkle with more Parmesan shavings (if desired). Garnish with cilantro and drizzle a little olive oil (you can also used chili-infused oil).

Bon appétit!


Tips

I used Redwood Hill Farms brand smoked goat cheese. I just met with them at the Fancy Food Show in San Francisco this week. Awesome team!

You could replace the paneer cheese with cubed tofu for a healthier pizza without cheese.

I used Trader Joe's ready made pizza dough. To gain time, you could replace the pizza dough with naans (Indian flat bread).

You can make your own paneer or buy it in any Indian store.

You can make mini-pizzas and serve them as appetizers. It's a great time-saver when you throw a buffet-style party.
