Tandoori Paneer Pizza - Indian Flavoured Pizza

I love anything with paneer especially pizza with paneer, just typing paneer pizza makes me drool...that much addict to pizza with paneer, i tried out this tandoori paneer pizza sterday for our dinner with a pizza base prepared with all purpose flour and wheat flour with baking soda instead of yeast mixture, this baking soda pizza base need an hour to raise also this pizza dough suits prefectly to make out this paneer pizza and i prepared a tandoori paste with store bought tandoori masala with jeera powder, coriander powder, garam masala, ginger garlic paste and dry basil leaves with curd..I marinated the paneer cubes in this curd-tandoori masala for an hour and used them over the pizza base without any pizza sauce....Finally i topped the pizza base with red onions, marinated paneer cubes, bellpeppers and few shredded cheddar cheese...We had a delicious dinner with this droolworthy pizza and a simple lettuce salad...Sending this tandoori paneer salad to Global Kadai-Indian Flavoured Pizza guest hosted by Lavi, event by Cilantro & to Champa's Bake Off Event...
