This  Quick & easy Paneer Pizza is  one of my favorite culinary creations :D :P  And the paneer tikka  marinade might be my new favorite  marinade e-ver. this recipe is definitely a keeper .  I have been making this  Quick & easy paneer tikka pizza On , pizza dough, Naans, flatbreads, tortillas but this one is made on a  afghan bread. YES you read it correct!!Afghan bread, or Naan-e Afghani, is the national bread of Afghanistan. The bread is oval or rectangular and baked in a tandoor, a cylindrical oven that is the primary cooking equipment of the sub-continental region.

The marinade very few ingredients ! To make the marinade, whisk together olive oil,  lemon juice,tomato paste and a plethora of spices including garlic, cumin powder, garam masala and paprika. Best. Paneer tikka marinate. EVER!
When it comes time to actually make your Paneer tikka  Pizza, they take minutes to whip up because you have already marinated your paneer . First you bake your afghan bread for 2 minutes. Afghan bread  comes in whole wheat  & all purpose flour . I used whole wheat with sesame seeds because that’s my personally favorite . And because we are using this  flatbreads instead of pizza crust, you can eat and eat and eat with a big blissful, guilt free smile on your face :D
