Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Prepare Homemade Pizza Crust.

  • In a small bowl, combine the 2 tablespoons water, lemon juice, Garam Masala and salt; set aside.

  • In a large nonstick skillet, heat 2 tablespoons oil over medium-high heat. Add potatoes and onion. Cook and stir 8 minutes or until potatoes are lightly browned and just tender. Add zucchini, jalapeño peppers, garlic and ginger. Cook and stir for 2 minutes. Add lemon juice mixture. Cook and stir for 2 minutes more. Remove from heat; cover and keep warm.

For pizza:
  • Remove pizza dough circles from freezer. Discard waxed paper and brush tops with some olive oil.

  • For a charcoal grill, carefully slide 2 of the pizza dough circles, oiled side down, onto the lightly oiled rack of an uncovered grill directly over medium-hot coals. Grill for 1 to 2 minutes or until dough is puffed in some places and starting to become firm. Carefully turn the crusts with tongs, transferring them from rack to the back of a baking sheet. Working quickly and carefully, brush oil over grilled top of crust.

  • For each pizza, spoon on 1/4 of the potato mixture. Top with 1/4 of the goat cheese. Transfer the pizzas from the baking sheet to the rack. Grill for 1 to 2 minutes more or until cheese is melted and crust is crisp. Remove pizzas from grill. (For a gas grill, preheat grill. Reduce heat to medium-hot. Place dough circles on grill rack over heat. Cover and grill as above.)

  • Repeat grilling with remaining 2 dough parts and toppings. Transfer pizzas to a cutting board. Top with cilantro and mint. Serve immediately. Makes four 10- to 12-inch pizzas (6 to 8 servings).


Because chili peppers contain volatile oils that can burn your skin and eyes, avoid direct contact with them as much as possible. When working with chili peppers, wear plastic or rubber gloves. If your bare hands do touch the chili peppers, wash your hands well with soap and water.

Baking Method:

Place 2 rounds at a time on a very large baking sheet. Bake in a 425 degree F oven for 5 minutes. Add toppings as above and bake 5 minutes more. Repeat with remaining crusts.
