Serves 6

  • 1 cup cubed Paneer chunks

  • 1 onion

  • 1 Bell pepper

  • 1/4th cup Pizza sauce

  • 1 cup Mozzarella cheese, grated

  • 1 sheet of home-made or store-bought Pizza Dough

  • 1-2 tbsn of melted butter

  • 4 tsp of Extra Virgin Olive Oil

  • 2 Cloves of Garlic, very finely chopped

  • 1 tbsn Fresh Parsley, finely chopped

  • 1 tbsn Italian seasoning

  • 1 tbsn Salt and Pepper each, or to taste


  • 01

    Finely chop the onion and bell-pepper. In a pan, heat 2 tsp Olive oil.

  • 02

    Add chopped garlic and fry for a few seconds.

  • 03

    Add the chopped onions and bell pepper. Sauté on high heat for around a minute!

  • 04

    Throw in the Paneer pieces, along with salt, pepper and half of the Italian seasoning. Fry for a couple of minutes.

  • 05

    Add the Pizza sauce and mix well. Cook for 2-3 minutes till the sauce gets well combined with the vegetables. The resulting mix should not be liquidy. We want a dry stuffing for the dough balls.

  • 06

    Switch off the gas and let the stuffing cool down COMPLETELY.

  • 07

    Later, pre-heat your oven to 180 degrees C. Grease a baking dish with a little olive oil and set aside.

  • 08

    On a floured surface, roll out your pizza dough into a thin sheet. Mind that it should not be too thin such that it has holes or breaks up easily.

  • 09

    Cut the dough into 6 equal-sized squares.

  • 10

    Place a tablespoon of Paneer stuffing in the middle of each square.

  • 11

    Sprinkle grated Mozzarella on top of stuffing on each square.

  • 12

    Seal each square by bringing the corners on top of the stuffing.

  • 13

    You will now have round-shaped dough-balls. Place all the dough balls smooth-side up together on the greased baking tray.

  • 14

    Cover with a damp cloth and set aside for around 6-7 minutes, for the final rise.

  • 15

    In the meanwhile, prepare the aromatic and tasty basting oil. In a small bowl, combine the melted butter, leftover olive oil and parsley. Mix well.

  • 16

    With a pastry brush, coat your dough-balls generously with the parsley oil all over the surface.

  • 17

    Bake your dough-balls on the middle-shelf for 20-25 minutes, or until they turn a nice shade of golden brown.

  • 18

    Sprinkle leftover Italian seasoning just before serving! Serve hot with the dip of your choice. Enjoy!
