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

for garnish (per pie)

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.
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.
