I have been dying to make Indian pizza for a while now, but have been far too lazy. But this past weekend, I finally broke down and tried it. I actually mean to take better photos, but it was too delicious to let sit. It might be my new go-to meal. Tom and I love Indian food, but it’s too expensive to eat on a regular basis. So this was a perfect compromise, it was something quick and east we could do at home without breaking the bank.
We made two pizzas. One Chicken Tikka Masala and one Roasted Cauliflower Korma.
You will need:
1/2 head of cauliflower
Salt and pepper
2/3 cup Korma simmer sauce
2/3 cup Tikka Masala simmer sauce
1 Thin cut chicken breast fillet, cubed
Preheat the oven to 450F.
Break cauliflower into small florets (the smaller the better). Place in a pan, drizzle with olive oil and season with salt and pepper. Roast for 30-40 minutes.
While your cauliflower is roasting check on your pizza dough. Sometimes you need to let it sit at room temp for 30 minutes. Now would be the perfect time to do that.
Remove cauliflower and adjust settings for your crust. Cook according to package directions. While the crust was baking, brown chicken in a small pot for about 5 minutes. Add 1/2 the tikka masala sauce and let simmer,
Remove the crusts and spread each with simmer sauce. For the Korma pizza, top with cauliflower, green onion and cilantro. For the Masala crust, spread the chicken mixture on top, with green onion and cilantro. Finally add cheese over the top. I used less cheese so that it didn’t over power the rest of the pizza, but enough to give it a gooey texture.
Place back in the oven and cook as directed. I think it’s usually 15 minutes or something like that.
I cooked my two pizzas together. And then promptly ate them and regretted not making more.
