Pavbhaji Pizza

     After all, we have all heard this..."East is East and West is West and never twain shall meet..." But I beg to differ when it comes to Pavbahjai Pizza!!! Yes, today's fusion recipe is again about pizza with some Indian street food touch. For most Desis, Pavbahji is a well-known dish that most of us have feasted on childhood, even though the recipe might vary slightly in every household. And, Pizza???... hummm again, the most favorite in all over in the world. The combination is just mouth watering!! So let's try two such diverse foods in the same breath. Believe me, it will be royal pizza treat for you.

" Fusion food as a concept is kind of trying to quite consciously fuse things that are sometimes quite contradictory, sometimes quite far apart, to see if they'd work."
Ingredients:
1cup Pavbhaji (just bhaji)
2thin Pizza crust/base
1cup Grated Mozzarella Cheese(I used Amul cheese)
1/2cup Chopped Onions-Cilantro
1/2 Fresh Lemon
For green chili sauce;
5-6 Fresh Jalapeño Peppers(or any green chilies, according to how much spicy you want)
2 Cloves Garlic
1tbls Oil
Salt to taste
Method:
For green chili sauce;
* Crush the Jalapeño peppers along with garlic.( Crush roughly, don't make smooth paste)
* Heat the oil in a pan.
* Add roughly crushed green chilies and garlic.
* Add Salt and cover and cook for about 3-4 minutes on medium flame.
* Stir it in between.
* Turn off the stove and keep this sauce on side.
For Pavbhaji Pizza;
* Pre heat oven on 350 F.
* Take a Pizza crust(base) and spread half green chili sauce on it.
 
* Adjust green chili sauce according to your taste.
* Spread bhaji of pavbhaji on the sauce evenly.
 

* Sprinkle the cheese on it.
* Sprinkle chopped onions-cilantro on it.

 * Bake it in oven for 10-15 minutes.
* Pizza crush should get crispy.
* Squeeze some fresh lemon juice on top of the pizza. 
* Serve yummy Pavbhaji Pizza immediately.
* Repeat the same method, and make another pizza by using second Pizza crust(base).

Enjoy!!!!!
