Barbeque Cottage Cheese Pizza

Barbeque Cottage Cheese Pizza


Ok the original plan was to make Tofu Stir Fry!!!!!

Now I have eaten Tofu zillion times but have never cooked any dish with it, so with that thought I had ordered for Tofu and was thinking of making Tofu Stir Fry but then my Mommy dearest was in a mood for Pizza!!!! 
So I had to drop my original plan and make Pizza. I ordered for the Pizza bread and browsed through my fridge to see what was there that I can use for my Pizza. While doing all this, I thought that instead of making repetitive Pizza's let me treat my family to four different variations since I had four breads and hence here came up with this Pizza Medley.
By the end of it Family was happy, Me exhausted but seeing the family enjoy I was super happy!!!

To make the Pizza, I first made the base with fresh tomatoes.


Ingredients

1 tbsp Olive Oil
1 chopped onion
1 tsp garlic paste
1 chopped tomato
1 tsp oregano
1/2 tsp red chilli flakes
A pinch of lemon pepper
Salt to taste
1 tbsp tomato ketchup
1/2 glass of water
Pizza bread
2 cheese cubes grated
75 gms - 100 gms cottage cheese
2 tsp Barbeque seasoning
Butter

Pizza Base

Heat oil, add chopped onions, cook till light in color, add garlic paste, cook till it turns dark in color, add chopped tomatoes. Mix well, cook for a few minutes, add oregano, red chilli flakes and lemon pepper. Kindly note you can black pepper too, if you don't have lemon pepper. Cook for a minute. Add salt and mix well. Add tomato ketchup and mix well. You can also use tomato puree, I did not have it ready at that time and was short on time, since my brother was pestering me too much to give him the pizza asap so made use of ketchup. Add 1/2 glass water, give it a boil, then cook on low flame for 3-4 minutes till the sauce thickens well enough for the base.
Keep it aside.


Cottage Cheese

Semi Fry cottage cheese and keep aside. Semi fry it because it will harden when you bake the pizza in the oven.


Assemble The Pizza

Apply butter on the bread, spread sauce on the bread and cover it completely, add fried cottage cheese cubes and garnish it with cheese. Sprinkle Barbeque seasoning over the pizza.
Put in the oven and bake for 15-20 minutes.
Remove it from the oven when you see the cheese melted.
Serve, Eat and Relish.
