Sometimes it is store-bought pizza, sometimes I make a good pizza from scratch, and on a few days, it’s a quick bread pizza. These days, it’s most often a Naan Pizza cos the family loves it.

Who doesn’t love Paneer? Not only is it a popular ingredient among Indians. It is also loved by people across different countries. It is one of those popular ingredients used in Indian Restaurants across the world.
I still remember, 7 years ago, Paneer Pizza was the first dish I attempted to bake. Though I lived in Europe and got the best pizzas near my house, I often craved Indian Style Pizzas. Being a paneer fan, Paneer Pizza is one fusion recipe that I thoroughly enjoy making and eating. The marinated paneer cubes add a great flavour and taste to the Pizza.
Paneer Pizza is obviously loaded with Paneer. But, I have added some onion and bell pepper for the crunch. The one good thing about this Pizza is, that it is customizable. You can add any other vegetables of your choice as topping along with Paneer.
