Grilled Indian Pizza




Come Thanksgiving and you see a lot of material on what to do with the Leftover turkey. Whether we cook one or not everyone has some or the other leftover after a party night or even after a night out in the restaurant when you think you could eat everything you ordered but it finally ends up in a box instead.

So what do you do with leftovers ? I simply make a pizza ... its the semi home made way !

I "heart" Pizza and I think you can showcase your creativity and come up with tons of different flavors and toppings. Like this one, I had some reshmi kababs, so decided to make an Indian Pizza.

Sure the home made pizza dough tastes much better and healthier, but having a packet of frozen dough really helps you fix a quick meal. To make it even quicker I use the store bought pita bread or roghini naan as my base and cook it on the griddle, yes this is a tawa top pizza :)

Though everything is store bought, I am splitting the list of ingredients to show how I made it the Semi Home Made way , as this is my first post for the ongoing event.


Ingredients:

Store bought / ready to use:

Whole wheat pita bread / Roghani naan,
Plain or flavored hummus,
Reshmi kabab / any kabab/ rotisserie chicken, chopped or shredded,
Bombay Sandwich spread (I used Swad brand, any chutney is fine)

ketchup,
chili powder,
pudina / mint leaves,
Colby cheese (use any cheeses you have handy),
cheddar cheese,
chaat masala.
Ghee. (optional)

Method:
Spread some hummus on the pita bread, then some ketchup, sprinkle the chicken , chili powder, cheeses, top with some sandwich chutney and fresh mint leaves. Heat a pan/ griddle/grill , put a little bit of ghee/ butter and put the pita bread with all layers , let it cook covered on low just until the cheese melts, sprinkle with chaat masala. Serve with chips and fruit juice.

Malar Gandhi said...

I agree, best way to use up the leftovers...I use chicken tikka, kebabs on pizza or sometimes make fried rice. These are absolutely fulfilling recipes:) Grilled pizza sounds great, must be aromatic for sure:)
