Method

1. Heat 2 – 3 tsp oil in a non-stick pan. Add the marinated paneer cubes and fry until golden brown, about 1 – 2 minutes on each side. To the same pan, add 1 more tsp oil and add the bell pepper and onion cubes. Season with salt and pepper powder. Stir-fry for 3 – 4 minutes at medium or medium-high heat. The veggies should be half-cooked but still crunchy. Switch off.

2. Preheat oven at 400 F.

3. Spread 1.5 tbsp pizza or sphagetti sauce on a pita bread. Top with paneer cubes and the veggies followed by around 3 tbsp shredded cheese.  Place in oven without a pan with the bottom of bread closer to the heat to achieve a better crust. (You can place the bread on a parchment paper if you want.) Bake for about 6 – 7 minutes until cheese melts and crust is slightly crispy. Take it out carefully using a spatula and cut into wedges. Serve immediately as it is or with garlic sauce / yoghurt, mint and cucumber dip etc.
