This may look like your bulk standard pepperoni pizza but it’s so much more. This is a pepperoni madras pizza, the first of a series of Indian inspired pizza recipes I’m going to be sending your way. If you’re a spice fan, you’re going to love this one.
In order to make this pizza, you’re going to have to make my base curry sauce. The small version here will do just fine. It doesn’t take any longer to make than a good tomato based pizza sauce. You will also want to make one of my naan recipes. For this pizza I used this one but any of my naan recipes should do the job.
I was considering using chicken for this and you could too. The thing is, I love pepperoni on pizzas so pepperoni won. I used a spicy Italian siccia sarda piccante which I sliced thinly. It is so much better than the bland sliced pepperoni you find at the supermarket.
If I had been a little bit better prepared, I would have purchased a few hot green chilli peppers, sliced them thinly and then covered the top with them. I wasn’t.
I forgot to do a shop so the three chillies I had on hand went into the sauce. Still though, I recommend doing this if you love fresh chillies as much as I do. I can assure you I’ll be making this one again soon and replacing the photo with one that has the added essential topping.

The pizza peel and wooden presentation base used in the photos above were supplied by Nisbets. The pizza peel also works very well with pizzas cooked on a standard BBQ. You can get more information here.
