HOME MADE RICOTTA CHEESE AND CORIANDER CHUTNEY PIZZA WITH THAI NOODLES AND TOFU...,..

REMEMBER CHICKEN MUSHROOM PIZZA,..PREPARED FEW DAYS BACK,,,,THE PIZZA WHICH I PREPARED YESTERDAY WAS TOTALLY OPPOSITE TO THAT,..IT WAS AROUND 2pm i guess..i started feeling hungry,..checked in freeze ,..bad luck no leftover,..saw pizza base,..but for topping i had no mood to do the preparation,..i saw coriander chutney too..shredded cheddar cheese,and home made ricotta cheese,..thought of playing with these ingredients to create topping for pizza,.i took out Tabasco garlic pepper sauce too from fridge,..
procedure for topping
applied coriander chutney evenly on the base
followed by home made ricotta cheese
finally shredded cheddar cheese and few drops of Tabasco garlic pepper sauce
microwaved it for two minutes
first bite of the pizza and i just loved it,..

I make pizza all the time with home made paneer instead of cheese. Never tried it with coriander chutney though. Great idea!

They both look scrumptious! I used to put ricotta in my pizza topping too and my hubby always laughed when he saw what I was doing. Well he can laugh as much as he wants now I know I'm not the only one who enjoys it that way :D
