Liz’s Chickpea Masala Pizza

Liz from our team in Canada makes pizzas with her family every Saturday evening. They create a little pizza station and everyone makes up their favourite pizzas with a selection of different toppings. Liz isn’t a vegetarian, but wanted to make a plant-based pizza, so she decided to use our Punjabi Channa Masala to add lots of depth of flavour and direction to the pizza and added tomatoes, red onions and fresh cilantro for freshness and contrast. Top with vegan cheese or even drizzle with a little seasoned sour cream once cooked for a little hit of cool creaminess. It’s become a creative new addition to Liz’s weekly pizza night.

Ingredients

  • 1 pack of The Spice Tailor Punjabi Channa Masala
  • 1/2 dough ball, around 360g
  • 1 tbsp. olive oil plus extra to brush the pizza base
  • 2 tomatoes, sliced - or ½ package small grape tomatoes, halved
  • Good handful of finely sliced red onion
  • Handful of chopped cilantro
  • 60 g vegan cheese or 2 tbsp. vegan yogurt or sour cream, optional

Method

  1. Heat your oven to 220°C (425°F).
  2. Cook the Channa Masala as per the directions on the pack and let cool for a few minutes. Remove large spices and pulse with a blender or mash well until it forms a rough chunky paste, then stir in ½ the olive oil.
  3. Slice your tomatoes, onions and pull the leaves off your cilantro.
  4. Stretch out your pizza dough (ensure you spray your pizza pan). Spoon over the chickpeas, leaving a little border of crust and scatter over the tomatoes, onions and cilantro.
  5. If you are using the vegan cheese, sprinkle on top.
  6. Bake in the oven for 15 minutes - or until crust is done to your liking.
  7. Drizzle over the yogurt or sour cream if using - or simply serve as is.
