Friday Feasts: Flavours of India pizza

By Healthy Magazine
Healthy pizzas don't have to be tasteless. This one's bursting with Indian flavours

Time to chuck away those takeaway pizza menus. Gorgeous Indian flavours liven up your palate when devouring this fragrant vegetarian alternative.

Serves 4

250ml tomato passata
½ tsp each: fennel seeds, ground cumin, chilli flakes and sea salt
4 naan breads, each 15cm long
1 small red pepper, thinly sliced
1 small red onion, thinly sliced
1 courgette, very thinly sliced
100g paneer cheese, crumbled
Coriander leaves, to garnish
Lime pickle, to serve


1 Preheat barbecue or grill to medium. Combine passata, fennel, cumin, chilli flakes and salt in a bowl.

2 Sit each naan on a double-thickness sheet of baking paper. Top with the tomato mix, pepper, onion, courgette and paneer.

3 Put pizzas on grill, cover with barbecue lid or a baking tray. Cook for 10 mins. Use metal spatula to lift pizzas and see how they’re cooking – you want a toasty golden-brown base.

4 Scatter with coriander leaves and serve warm, with lime pickle on the side.
