Tandoori Paneer Pizza is a sinful mix of tandoori masala mix with paneer topped over a pizza that makes a wonderful meal anytime.
When I had made this pizza my kids couldn’t get enough of it. That was because all it had was just paneer in a tandoori masala that they all love. It was easy for me as well as I just used a store bought spice mix and didn’t bother about marinating the paneer with it.
This is a simple and straight forward pizza dough recipe topped with goodness of tandoori paneer. Just seeing these pictures makes me want to make it again!
We are starting the BM#106 with week 1 being Pizzas and Pastas. So for the second day, it’s a fusion dish made with chapati stuffed with roasted vegetables along with pizza sauce and cheese. I am hosting this month’s Kid’s Delight event, themed on Pizzas and Pastas

Similarly, prepare the other balls and keep it aside.
