Curried Pizza

For this month's Sweet Punch challenge, our host Divya chose Pizza by  Pioneer Woman. The topping was to be of one's own choice. So for the topping I used my mushroom fry and curried soy. It was well liked and enjoyed to the last bite.Those of you who love spicy pizzas do try this combo.
Recipe source - Pioneer Woman
For the crust :Makes 2 crusts
 Active Dry Or Instant Yeast-1 teaspoon
All-purpose Flour-4 cups
 Kosher Salt-1 teaspoon
 Extra Virgin Olive Oil-⅓ cups
Sprinkle yeast over 1 1/2 cups warm (not lukewarm) water.
In a mixer, combine flour and salt. With the mixer running on low speed (with paddle attachment), drizzle in olive oil until combined with flour. Next, pour in yeast/water mixture and mix until just combined.
Coat a separate mixing bowl with a light drizzle of olive oil, and form the dough into a ball. Toss to coat dough in olive oil, then cover the bowl tightly with plastic wrap and store in the fridge until you need it. ***It’s best to make the dough at least 24 hours in advance, and 3 or 4 days is even better.
For the Topping:(for 1 crust)
Curried Soy Granules Ingredients:
Soy granules Morningstar meal starters-1 cup
Onions-1/4 cup
Tomatoe paste-1tbs
Ginger garlic paste-1/2 teaspoon
Meat masala-1tsp
Cheese-1/2 cup
Mushroom Fry-1/2 recipe
Heat a pan and add 2 tbs oil to it add the onion and ginger garlic paste when the onions turn light brown add the tomato paste and saute for another 2 minutes.Add meat masala to this and saute till the oil oozes out .Add the Soy granules(meal starter) and saute till well combined ,add salt to taste!
To make the Pizza
Preheat oven to 500 degrees.
Drizzle olive oil on a large baking sheet and use fingers to coat thoroughly. Remove HALF the pizza dough from the bowl. Stretch pizza dough into a large rectangle, pressing with fingers to finish forming. Dough will be very thin.
Lightly drizzle a little olive oil on the dough and use fingers to spread.Apply a little bit more of olive oil over the surface of the dough. Spread mushroom fry and curried soy granules all over the pizza. Sprinkle cheese on the top .
Bake for 10 to 12 minutes, or until crust is golden brown and the cheese is bubbly. Remove from pan and slice with a pizza cutter. Serve immediately!
