We love this fusion dish that uses our Aloo Gobi recipe on a homemade pizza, topped with crispy bacon. Here at Droosh we never say no to experimenting and trying out new dishes, like this classic Indian dish combined with one of our all-time favorites, pizza. Potatoes, cauliflower, bacon, cheese and spices - this is a must try, and we are sure your friends will be impressed when you show up with this dish at your next get together. 

SERVINGS: 4 | PREP TIME: 30 min | COOK TIME: 40 min
  • 2 servings of your favorite pizza dough recipe, or store bought dough
  • 1 28 oz. can of San Marzano Tomatoes
  • 6 pieces of bacon
  • 2 tbsp ghee
  • 1/2 teaspoon cumin seeds
  • 1 tbsp grated ginger
  • 1 tbsp minced garlic
  • 1 serrano pepper (optional)
  • 1 large russet or Yukon gold potato
  • 1 cauliflower head, chopped
  • 1 large white onion, chopped
  • 2 lemons, juiced
  • 1 cup cilantro, chopped
  • Salt and pepper, to taste
  • 2-3 cups shredded mozzarella cheese
  • 3 tbsp Everyday Spice Mix


Make your tomato sauce

  • Place a strainer over a medium bowl. Pour tomatoes onto the strainer and sprinkle with a little salt.
  • Let sit for 20 minutes until most of the juices have been removed. Draining off the juices will make the sauce more thick.
  • Once drained, place tomatoes into a clean bowl and mash. Set aside.

Make your bacon

  • Line a rimmed baking sheet with parchment paper. Place bacon on sheet and place in a cold oven.
  • Set the oven to 400F and cook until the bacon is crispy, about 25-30 minutes.
  • Remove from the oven, let cool, and then chop it up and set aside.

Make your Aloo Gobi

  • Add ghee to a large pan over low-medium heat.
  • Add cumin seeds and sauté for 30 seconds, until they begin to crackle and then add the ginger and garlic and sauté for an additional 30 seconds.
  • Add chopped onions, diced Serrano chili, and sauté until transparent, about 3-5 minutes.
  • Add potatoes and fry for 2-4 minutes and then cover with lid and cook until potatoes begin to soften, about 8 minutes, adding 1/4 cup of water half way through.
  • Add cauliflower and nature for 3 minutes and then add Everyday Spice Mix and juice of 1 lemon and stir.
  • Cover with a lid and cook until potatoes and cauliflower are fully cooked on low-medium heat.
  • Add salt and pepper to taste and garnish with cilantro and the juice of another lemon.

Assemble your pizzas

  • Preheat the oven to 425F and place a pizza stone or baking sheet in the oven to heat with it. Roll your pizza dough out into 12 inch circles.
  • Bake each pizza round separately for 6-8 minutes, until the crust is firm, but not brown. This may need a couple minutes longer depending how thick you rolled your dough out.
  • Top the dough with San Marzano tomatoes, Aloo Gobi, Mozzarella cheese, and half of your crispy bacon.
  • Bake for an additional 10-12.
  • Repeat with the remaining crust.


    • If you are using pre-made pizza dough, skip the pre-bake and follow the baking instructions on the package.
