Pizza Paratha Recipe - Flatbread Pizza - Stovetop Pizza - No Yeast & No Oven Pizza

flatbread pizza recipe

Pizza paratha recipe - flatbread pizza is a healthy and wholesome pizza with whole wheat flatbread or roti and without yeast; made entirely on stovetop. Yes, this stovetop pizza is made without an oven and super easy too.

My kids named it roti pizza and believe me this was a life saver for me when my kids were growing up; especially with fuzzy and picky Nidhi! It has all the goodness of whole wheat roti/flatbread and topping with homemade pizza sauce - oh! yes, you can throw in mushrooms, boiled corns, I had once added a cup of minced veggies to the simmering sauce and it was a huge hit! with the kids....so, be innovative with the toppings. You can make it all veggie or throw in some chicken like I did today...and it will turn out to be a winner always!

If you don't have the patience to make roti from scratch; then go ahead and use premade roti. Do you have some leftover chicken curry gravy? maybe some leftover paneer butter masala gravy in the fridge? or butter chicken gravy? or maybe some left over tandoori chicken? Think! Think! and be innovative...and your kids will enjoy the meal.

Ingredients:
For the dough:
Whole wheat flour: 1 cup
Salt: 1/2 tsp
Italian seasonings: 1 tsp
Water: As needed
Oil: 1 tsp or as needed.

Pizza Topping:
Chicken: 150 gms
Garlic cloves: 10, finely chopped
Onion: 1, finely chopped
Olive oil or any veg oil: 1 tbsp
Salt: 1 tsp
Kashmiri chilli powder: 1 tsp
Italian seasonings: 1 tsp
Tomatoes: 3, chopped
Coriander leaves: 1 tbsp, chopped
Pepper powder: 1/4 tsp
Capsicum: 1 medium, chopped
Mozzarella Cheese: Grated, as needed.
Red chilly: 1


Method:
To make roti: Add wheat flour into a bowl, add in salt and Italian seasonings and then add water little by little and make into a soft dough. Drizzle little oil on top and keep it aside while we get the toppings ready.

To make pizza topping:
Heat a kadai or pan with oil, add in the garlic cloves and once you get a nice flavour add in the onion. Mix well, add in salt and once the onions is transparent add in Kashmiri chilli powder and mix well. After about a minute add in roughly chopped chicken and again mix well.
Add in Italian seasonings and let the chicken roast for 3 minutes.
After 3 minutes add in chopped bright red tomatoes.
Cover and cook the chicken with the tomatoes. Once the chicken is cooked, allow the tomatoes to get reduced by half on low flame.
Once it is done, switch off the flame and sprinkle some coriander leaves and pepper powder.

To Assemble:
Roll out the dough into a flat round disk (check video for more tips).
Heat a tawa or an iron skillet once it is hot, place the rolled out roti on it and simmer the fire. Cook it on both sides and then spread half of the chicken and tomato filling on it,  sprinkle chopped capsicum and grated cheese. Cover and cook for a few minutes or until the cheese is melted nicely.
Once the cheese is melted, sprinkle finely sliced red chilli flakes on top and some coriander leaves.
Slice, serve and enjoy.
