One of the many things I love about pizza is that the crust forms a beautiful blank canvas to showcase our creativity and delicious ingredients! Winter can be a little more challenging to find fresh produce, so it’s a great time to dig into the pantry and ingenuity.
While weathering the cold outside, I decided to spice things up in the kitchen by taking one of my favorite foods, chana masala, and figuring out how to put in on pizza.
I started getting the fragrance going with sautéing onions, garlic, and jalapeños– I love when you can smell the spice! Then it’s time for the substance– cauliflower, chickpeas (chana), and tomatoes. Masala is a mixture of Indian spices and is the key to the flavor; it’s no wonder Columbus tried to sail around the world to find these spices! Topped with mozzarella and fresh cilantro, the Chana Masala pie turned out to be a perfect example of a healthful yet comforting meal! A great meatless Monday option too as there are 2.5 grams of protein in every tablespoon of chickpeas.
