Veggie pizza with paneer, mushrooms and bell pepper

Its completely an individual's choice of about what goes on the pizza. But one has to be careful that the ingredients does not make the crust soggy. If you use some vegetables, then just saute them with some olive oil till it gets slightly tender as well as retains its crispiness. Or you can use toppings which does not need any cooking such as olives and sun dried tomatoes. Distribute the toppings at regular intervals on the crust . Its better to use 2 or 3 toppings, but even a single ingredient tastes great.
Then you can use the homemade pizza sauce. I tried this last time and you can find the recipe here. But this time, I used the store brought pizza/pasta sauce which tasted equally good.
And now when you add the cheese, use it in grated or shredded form. Place a handful of cheese evenly on the crust beneath the toppings.
Here in singapore, the vegeterians do not have much choice of pizza toppings. But I really miss the ones we get in India.I have tasted pizza with paneer toppings in India and I was really craving for that kind of Indian pizza. So I used paneer and then mushrooms just because I had them in my pantry and bellpeppers because my hubby loves it on the pizza. And then , I did not want to use red chilly flakes as my kid was going to have them too. So I added some pepper and cumin powder for the mild spiciness.
I just noticed Lavi's event called global kadai where she wants us to indianise the pizza. So I think my pizza qualifies for the event. So this one goes to her. This event was started by Cilantro.
