This month's challenge for global kadai was interesting and also challenging, Indian Flavoured Pizza.
It was a long time since I made naan and I thought why not convert it into a pizza with our favorite tandoori paneer and Indianised sauce. Voila! here is Naan Pizza and it turned out beautifully. Its a sinfully rich pizza loaded with a rich tomato sauce, paneer and mozerella cheese.Though the process looks lengthy you will be able to complete everything by the time the dough rises. I made a large family sized pizza, you can also make regular shaped pizza. I made  Microwave Tandoori Paneer which Ive posted earlier. Sending this Tasty Tasty pizza to Global Kadai  event guest hosted by Lavi event by Cilantro. and to Champa's Bake-off event
