Aloo Gobi Pizza / Tandoori Aloo Gobi Pizza

From this month we are starting our Home Baker's Challenge , a monthly baking event for both blogger & Non bloggers initated by Priya & team, with the first baking recipe, Pizza. From kids to aged person love pizza, the color, its colorful appearance, cheesy texture n chewy bread tempts everyone to have atleast a bite. We too love pizza/only veggie pizza and once in a month or two months once will enjoy pizza at pizza Hut.

For this month's HBC's challenge Divya picked pizza and she given us four dufferent pizza recipes with different sauces. I took the pizza base recipe and for topping this time tried Indianised Pizza with homemade Tandoori sauce & Tandoori Aloo Gobi toppings. Aloo Gobi Pizza came out so well and the crust was so perfect this time compared to my first attempt with wheat crust veggie pizza. My H n kids loved it and thanks a ton Divya for giving us nice challenge with perfect recipes. Loved baking it n hope to bake more yummy recipes with my HBC group members...Now to the recipe..

  5. Pepper powder     to taste
  6. Oil      1 tbsp
Method
  • Wash, peel the potato skin and thinly slice and keep aside.
  • Bring 2 cups of water to boil, once it starts boiling add caulfilower florets then switch off the stove. wait for 2 minutes then drain the water completely and wash it in cold water and drain and wipe the excess moisture using cloth/paper towel.
  • Now in a mixing bowl, add cauliflower florets, sliced potato, tandoori sauce,oil, chilli powder, pepper powder and little salt toss everything well.
  • Preheat oven to 300 degree Fahrenheit.
  • Now arrange the aloo gobi on a lined & greased baking sheet and bake the potato and cauliflower for 20-25 minutes or until turn crisp n cooked.
  • Once done remove from oven and allow to cool completely.
How to Make Aloo Gobi Pizza
  1. Preheat oven to 400 degree Fahrenheit.
  2. Once the dough has risen,Punch down the dough and transfer to a clean surface. Using a bench scraper or a sharp knife, divide the dough in half, and knead each half four or five turns into a ball. Place one of the dough balls back in the oiled bowl, and cover with plastic wrap. Lightly flour a clean surface, place the remaining dough ball on top, pat into a flattened circle, cover lightly with plastic wrap, and let rest 5 minutes. Roll it to 12" using a rolling pin.
  3. Using your fingers, begin to flatten and push the dough evenly out from the center until it measures about 7 to 8 inches in diameter. Do not press the dough all the way to the edges. Leave a slightly raised border, about a half-inch wide, around entire circumference of pizza dough.
  • This gives you thick edges, once done place the dough into the baking pan, Prick the dough with a fork.
  • Now spread tomato sauce, then add tandoori aloo gobi, diced onions, sliced bell pepper and lastly sprinkle shredded cheese all around,lightly brush the edges with olive oil/milk (optional)  and bake it for 15- 20 minutes or until bottom turns light golden brown and cheese melted.
  • Once done remove from the oven, using a pizza wheel slice them in to pieces and serve immediately.
  • Repeat the same with the second pizza dough.
