for Tandoori Sauce

for Tandoori Vegetarian Pizza (for 1 pie ~ 8 ounces dough)

  • 1/2 pound pizza dough 8 ounces
  • 1/4 cup tandoori marinara sauce
  • 1/4 cup red onions chopped
  • 1/4 cup green bell pepper chopped
  • 1/4 cup corn rinsed & drained
  • 6-8 sliced jalapeño
  • 1-2 tbsp olives chopped
  • 1 cup cheddar & gruyere cheese

for garnish (per pie)

  • 2-3 tbsp cilantro
  • drizzle of Jalapeno Cream Sauce


Make the Jalapeno Cream Sauce

  • In a mini food processor, combine jalapeno, cilantro, lime juice, olive oil, garlic, salt, and cumin.
  • Chop/Grind it in the food processor.
  • Add sour cream.
  • Pulse a few times until mixed. The sauce should be slightly runny.

Prep Pizza

  • Chop the red onions, green bell pepper, and olives. Slice the jalapenos. Rinse and drain frozen corn. Grate some cheese - I used a combo of cheddar and gruyere.
  • Make the sauce - mix marinara with tandoori seasoning.

Make the Pizza

  • Place a castiron skillet in the oven at 475 degrees for 10 minutes. This will result in a crispy pizza so don't skip this step.
  • In the meantime, roll out your dough in a circle. You should be using 8 ounces of pizza dough for each pie of pizza.
  • Once your skillet is hot, carefully remove it from the oven and brush with olive oil.
  • Carefully place the rolled-out dough over the hot skillet. You'll hear it sizzle.
  • Spread a few spoonfuls of the tandoori pizza sauce over the dough ~ about 1/4 cup.
  • Top with onions, green bell pepper, olives, corn, and jalapeno.
  • Now top with lots of cheese.
  • Place the skillet in a 475-degree oven for 8-12 minutes - oven temperatures vary so check after 8 minutes.
  • Your pizza is ready. Garnish with fresh cilantro.
  • Optional: top with the Jalapeno Cream Sauce.
