An off-beat pizza in which garlic dominates the topping. Garlic sauce is often used in the preparation of pizzas and sometimes even served as an accompaniment with bread and pizzas. However, here chopped garlic combined with onion, cottage cheese and herbs makes up the irresistible topping. The Garlic, Onion and Cheese Pizza is to be served immediately to enjoy the aroma and texture of freshly-baked garlic – it might not be so attractive after a while!

A simple pizza with not too many ingredients.... The onions are cooked till nice and brown and combined with paneer, oregano and garlic... A hint of chilli flakes would add on to the flavour further.

The garlic and macroni pasta gives a lovely twist to the pizza. Instead of adding onions and capsicum in a normal way, the pastes of red capsicum and onions is used. This combination of pasta and pizza is something you should give a try.
