Healthy Tandoori Indian Pizza (no guilt!!!)

Just a single slice of regular hand tossed pizza has over 500 calories alone,deep dish slice has close to 1000 calories, add to that the damaging refined flour and oil, the commercial eateries use.

The tandoori part comes from the use of tofu which if done right is a good substitute of paneer and the dry masalas. Using whole grain/whole wheat tortilla with skimmed milk cheese makes this pizza very crispy and healthier.

Cheddar cheese in general contains lot of salt so avoid using that.

 

Makes 1 medium pie

Ingredients:

1 large whole wheat  soft tortilla

2-3 tablespoon of pasta sauce

handful of colored peppers,pineapple,olives,mushrooms (optional),onions,broccoli and whatever other vegetable you fancy or prefer.

I love artichokes and baby spinach.

1/2 cup finely diced firm tofu (not soft or siken, the package has firm written on it) I know tofu with pizza is unbearable to think of but tofu marinated in indian spices can easily substitute paneer.

1 clove of garlic

1 tsp lemon juice.

A pinch of: Garam masala, red chili powder, any dry tandoori masala from MDH OR EVEREST brand.

1 tsp hot sauce

1/4 cup of skimmed milk mozzarella cheese ( i use kraft 2% )

 

Method:

Marinate the tofu pieces for an hour or so in the dry masalas with a spoon of lemon juice.

Spread the sauce on the tortilla, add the vegetables,tofu pieces, sprinkle cheese and sprinkle a pinch or so of dry masalas mentioned above.

Bake in the preheated oven at 350 degrees for about 8-10 minutes.
