Matar Paneer Pizza

I love curries, and I love pizza. So why not combine the two into a quick, tasty meal using many easy to come by ingredients from your store cupboard. You can find paneer in most supermarkets and independent international stores. If you can’t get paneer, use halloumi. For a vegan version, use an extra firm tofu. This also works using spinach in place of the peas for a sag paneer pizza

2 large or 4 small plan naan – again for a vegan version use vegan naan (I have seen these in Sainsbury’s), or make your own using flour, plant based yogurt and yeast
3-4 tablespoons natural dairy or plant based yogurt
3 teaspoons tandoori masala spice blend. Or make up your own using your favourite spices such as cumin, turmeric, coriander, chili powder, etc
1 200g pack of Paneer or Firm Tofu – diced
Frozen peas
Whole cumin seeds
Garam Masala – about a teaspoon or so
Red onion – optional. Sliced thinly

Put the oven on 200C and lay the naan onto a baking sheet.

Mix the tandoori masala or spice blend with the yogurt and spread over the naan

Top with the peas, then arrange the diced paneer on top

Sprinkle some cumin seeds and garam masala over, then the red onion if using. You can also add some finely sliced fresh chilis if you want extra heat

Put in the oven for around 10-12 minutes until hot and the paneer starting the char
