Indian BBQ Pizza

We make homemade pizza quite often & decided it would be a quick easy meal for New Year's Eve . Back in San Francisco our English friends loved to order Indian Pizza. We'd been talking about trying to come up with our version since we liked it so much. Then over the holidays Matt's mother served Roasted Cauliflower & Brussels Sprouts with an Indian Barbecue Sauce. We had discovered our Indian Pizza sauce.

Indian Barbecue Sauce

1 T ground cumin
2 T olive oil
1 t minced fresh ginger
1 garlic clove, pressed
1 1/4 c ketchup
1/4 c soy sauce
2 T sugar

Toast cumin in a small skillet over medium heat until darker in color & beginning to smoke, about 1 1/2 minutes. Set aside.
Heat the olive oil in a small saucepan over medium-low heat. Add ginger & garlic; sauté until very fragrant, about 3 minutes. Add ketchup, soy sauce, sugar, and toasted cumin. Bring to a boil, whisking to blend. Reduce heat to very low; simmer 1 minute to blend flavors, whisking constantly.

Recipe from Bon Appétit September 2007

For topping we used leftover roast chicken from Sunday night, sliced onions & Fontina cheese. A section on other vegetables sch as cauliflower would be great too.

This made a terrific pizza & we'll use this sauce again. Matt even used it on his ham & cheese sandwich for lunch today.

One note about making homemade pizza. We had our second pizza stone crack in two this week.
cracked pizza stone Shouldn't these be made to stand up to 450 degree heat? We are going to try getting some unglazed ceramic tile & see if its any better.

Oh my gosh, that's awful! My brother got me a pizza stone for Christmas, and I'm still figuring it out. How on earth did yours crack?

We're not sure my newest one is lasting so far & I'm being careful not to give it drastic temp changes so I let it preheat & cool down in the oven

I broke a stone on my first barbecued pizza also! I have switched to a pizza grid and it works great! You can see it here:
