Shahi Pasanda Pizza(Royal Pizza) Italian-Indian Fusion Cusine!

We Indians are so obssessed with our spicy flavours that whatever global dish there is, a bit of Indianess will usually be added to that food to give it a more spicy flavour..(me being one of them). Once I saw a programme on tv, where one Indian lady used to take her chilli sauce bottle with her (atleast i dont do that !), whenever she goes on holiday..her kids got so annoyed with her, that they had to take the chilli sauce away from her for the rest of the holiday!

Made this Pizza specially for my daughter, as she is ardent fan of Pizza!but in the end we all loved it...
You will need for base:-
  • 2 3/4 cup Strong white flour
  • 1 tbsp fast action dry yeast
  • 1 tbsp Oil
  • 2 tbsp Sugar
  • 1 tsp Salt
  • 1 cup Water
  • Handful of fresh, finely chopped coriander
  • 1 tsp Carom seeds(Ajwayn)  with theses two stuff I made Indianise pizza dough!
Method:
I used my bread maker to make a dough.
You will need for Shahi Pasanda Sauce:-
  • 1 cup tomato puree
  • small onion chopped
  • 1 tsp mustard seeds
  • pinch of Asafoetida(hing)
  • 1 tbsp oil
  • 15-20 cashew nuts and almonds
  • 20-25 pices of Raisins
  • 2 tbsp yogurt
  • 3-4 tbsp fresh cream
  • Salt to taste
  • 1 tsp Paprika powder
  • Red chilli powder, tumeric powder, Garam masala and dhana jeera powder(adjust to your liking)
Method:-
Heat oil in a pan, add mustard seeds and hing.  After spulttar add onion and fry for few minutes.  Now add everything except yogurt and cream.  Let it cook the sauce about 10-12 minutes.  Add beaten yogurt and cook for 1 minute more and add fresh cream.  Mix well and switch of the heat.  Let it cool slightly and grind into a paste in grinder.  Leave a side.
When dough is ready, preheat oven to gas mark 6.  Press dough into a lightly greased pizza pan.  Brush lightly with oil.  Cover and allow to stand 15 minutes.  Spoon Shahi Pasanda sauce over dough and top with Capsicum pieces, Pineapple pieces, Onion pieces, Tomatos,fresh green Indian chillies(Indian very Indian)hahahaha...and grated cheese(any).
Bake at gas mark 6 for 25-30 minutes or until crust is golden brown and cheese is bubbly.  Take it out from the oven, let it rest for few minutes(we didn't..;-P) so you can cut pizza properly.


here is my hubby can't wait to tuck in..:)
  Serve and enjoy as much as we did! actually I enjoyed them so much,that is something! will I make it again of course there was a 4 yes's! Gustare!
