The quest to fufil the request

Whilst reading my emails,i came across a request!
For a Pizza,with my cultural twist!

My mind went into over load!
But i had to pick one idea,one i haven't tried before!

So i made a Palak paneer (kinda) Pizza!
i was going to use a naan bread but i wanted to put my twist on it,and still keep the Italian side!

So off i went into my kitchen,to create a pizza!
well it smelt delicious and tasted even better!

For the Base:
500g Strong bread flour
10g Yeast
1 tspn Caster Sugar
650ml Luke warm water
Pinch salt
Large pinch cumin
4 green chillies chopped small

Mix the flour,chillies,cumin and salt together,
Mix the yeast,sugar and water together.
Add the yeast mix slowly to the flour,you can either do this in a machine,using a dough hook (like the lazy me!) or make a well on your work surface and gradually incorporate the liquid into the flour.
When the ingredients have combined,Knead the dough until thoroughly mixed,and cover with a damp cloth for about 40 minutes,until the dough doubles in size!

When the mix has doubled re knead it,this is called knocking back.
( I went on a coffee break at this point ...This is an ideal job for eager little brothers with little hands and lots of energy!!)

this mix is enough for 2 medium pizzas.

For the Sauce:

Large pinch of Cumin
2 cloves of garlic
250g tomatoes

brown off the cumin & garlic in a little oil then add the tomatoes and reduce the liquid by half.

For the Topping:

this is done to your liking!
I used some paneer which i diced pretty small
Some baby spinach
Red onions
Baby Tomatoes
Red Leicester cheese
A generous sprinkling of fenugreek
A generous sprinkling of garam masla.
A Generous sprinkle of fresh cilantro!

I cooked this complete pizza @ 200Degrees for 15 minutes.

Well Mr Greenscales I hope this answered your query.




Guess what!
