Paneer Butter Masala Pizza

The first time I had this pizza was in Seattle and we were hooked. My cousin had told us about this pizza and we thought it was a joke but it sure exists! This recipe below is my best copy of that pizza. My husband loved my version so much that it is now our preferred pizza. It is a great leftover recipe as well.

Ingredients:

1 1/2 cups Marinara
1 tablespoon butter
1-2 cloves garlic
1/2 cup onions chopped
1/2 cup green peppers chopped
1 tablespoon chopped coriander (optional)
1/3 tablespoon basil
1/4 cup milk (if needed)
Salt and pepper
2 12 inch Pizza bases (I used readymade)
Mozzarella cheese (I had a mix with cheddar)
In a deep pot, heat the butter and add the garlic. Saute till translucent. Add the onions and peppers and continue to saute for a minute. Add the paneer butter masala and the marinara along with the basil, coriander, and pepper. Mix well and cook for a couple of minutes. Taste and add salt. If the mix is too thick add some milk. Cook for another 2-3 minutes. This is your PBM pizza sauce.

Preheat an oven to 450 degrees. Spread the PBM pizza sauce on the base. Spread cheese and bake for 20 minutes till the cheese has melted and the edges are crispy. See this or this post for more detailed instructions on baking the pizza. Cut into wedges and enjoy while its hot!
I am sending this dish to Lavi's Global Kadhai: Indian Flavored Pizza an event started by Cilantro. I am also sending it to Jagruti's Joyful Eating whilst Traveling Event.

Absolutely loved the Indianised curry version of Pizza. Not a Pizza person, having the inclination to have this :):)Sure to try soon.

I HAVE to try it. Got pizza base and paneer both at home, so will try, most likely tonight itself. Thanks for a wonderful idea.
