When East Meet West: Paratha Pizza

Been a while since I was energetic enough to spend quality time in the kitchen over the weekend exploring different type of cuisine. Finally, this weekend, I was feeling much more energetic hence, decided to be a little creative with dinner for the family.

I wanted to make pizza for a while already. But I did not like the normal pizza dough, so decided to experiment with Paratha instead as pizza base.

Paratha is a flatbread that originated from the Indian subcontinent. A popular unleavened flatbread made from whole wheat dough, paratha are thicker and puffier than chapatis.

I must admit that I did not made paratha from scratch this time round. Judging on how much the boys loved the pizza, I will try to attempt making paratha next time round. So for this time, I bought frozen paratha from the supermarket.

Ingredients:

  • 1 packet (5 pieces) of wholemeal paratha
  • 500 gm minced beef
  • 1 yellow onions – chopped finely
  • 1 red pepper – cut into small cubes
  • 5 tablespoon of Pizza sauce + 1/2 bowl of pizza sauce (for this recipe, I had chosen Traditional Basil, Tomatoes and Garlic sauce)
  • 200 gm mozzarella cheese
  • pepper to taste

  8. In the heated up pan (no oil is required), puff up the paratha according to the instruction on the packagingimg_4472
  9. On the baking tray, line with aluminum foil (I am very lazy so it is for the purpose of easy cleaning only)
  10. Place the puff up paratha  on the tray. With 1 tablespoon of pizza sauce, spread it nicelyimg_4473

  1. Even i haven’t had parantha pizza, was it any good?? I like to make rolls with my parantha, i like the flour ones better than wheat ones. I put fried eggs, leftover chicken or meat, cucumber, onion, tomato ketchup etc. in my parantha and roll it up. Think of it like a pizza roll, make it according to ur taste and its yummy
