We have not been great fans of Pizza.Once in a while we do have the urge and we order from Dominos,be the perfect couch potatoes and curl up in front of the tv.Thats it.Off late I have been saying No to Ajay’s offer for a pizza takeaway ever since I saw an ad for a pizza that is loaded heavily with cheese-not the normal one[that is tempting],the one which only has cheese..umm,I am not sure I want that!!I have made Pizza once long back and loved it but have not recreated the magic again.
Then comes the dessert queen with her Pizza,not one but two of them back to back.I had bookmarked the first one and planned to make it this weekend.But no,she tempted me too much with this one.While I was going through the post,I was thinking of a veggie alternative to the Tandoori chicken sausage and Paneer was chosen unanimously..by me:).
We ♥ed it..;).I made it almost low-fat..quite an oxymoron,can pizza ever be low-fat???Chose a whole wheat base and pressed the break button while grating the cheese.The topping was spectacular,paneer was soft,roasted capsicum tasted smoking hot and the sweet corn gelled perfectly with the rest of the ingredients.
