Pizza Paratha recipe (step by step) and video

Pizza paratha recipe – Have you heard of rhymes, “Do you like Broccoli? Yes, I do. Yes, I do. Do you like Icecream? Yes, I do. Yes, I do. Do you like Broccoli Ice-cream? No, I don’t! Yuccky!” . This was the song buzzing in my head when my daughter said she wants to eat pizza for dinner. With focus on health being in my mind, I thought why not make something different this time, so I asked her, “Do you like Pizza?” She said, “yes, I do!”. Then I asked, “Do you like Paratha?”, She replied, “Yes, I do!” Then I said, Do you like “Pizza Paratha?”. She was like…ummm…am not sure. I then said, let’s have a deal, try it out and if you don’t like, won’t ever make it.

Ever since the beginning of the year, I have been thinking of incorporating healthy options in my family meal, and though I wanted to make this pizza paratha, I wanted to go with healthier options and hence I went with gluten free multi-grain flour (Atta).

How to make pizza paratha

The recipe is fairly simple and it involves making the filling (in other words pizza toppings) and rolling two separate flat breads. Then sandwiching that filling between two layers of these freshly rolled flat breads.

Some people may prefer to make it other way, in which you roll the dough into chappati shape and then add toppings plus cheese and then bake it. You may choose whichever option you may like. I have used the former one, as this recipe does not require oven.

Method

  • In a wide mixing bowl add wheat flour and little salt and with the help of water, knead it to a smooth dough ensuring dough is not too soft and neither too tight.
  • Now, heat a pan over medium heat and add 1 tablespoon of oil to it. Once it’s warm, add all the chopped vegetable to it and sauté for 5 minutes.
  • Now add, salt, pizza sauce, oregano and chilli flakes and mix well. Add 2 tablespoon of cheese and sauté again for 5 minutes. Switch off the heat and transfer this mixture into a bowl.
  • Divide the dough into 8 equal parts and make balls of it. Now take one ball and roll into a circle of 5 inch diameter. Keep it aside and roll one more ball into a circle of same size.
  • Spread 2 tablespoon of stuffing evenly on it and spread cheese on top of it. Cover it with the first rolled circle and seal the edges of both together.
  • Heat a tawa on medium heat and place parantha on it. Flip the side after 1 minute. Spread oil on this side and flip again. Spread oil on this side too and roast the parantha from both the sides for 2-3 minutes.
  • Make rest of the parantha using the same procedure.

Toppings for pizza paratha

With regards to toppings, I have used capsicum and sweetcorn as main ingredient. You may experiment with other things that you like (Options are numerous, such as add chicken bits if you like chicken, or any other fresh veg).

I must add that my daughter loved the taste of this pizza paratha and so did I. I had made this in past too, but using multigrain flour was the first time and surprisingly it turned out well. Ever since then, I have made this pizza paratha a few times at home.

Notes

  1. You can add chopped olives too to the stuffing.
  2. You can use cheddar cheese in place of mozzarella cheese.
  3. You can use plain tomato ketchup if you don’t have pizza sauce.
  4. You can spread little pizza sauce to the base parantha before spreading stuffing. I didn’t used it as my kids don’t like much of it.
