Ingredients Serving: 3

  1. 1 packet Pav buns (mine had about 6 pavs)
  2. For the pizza filling:
  3. 1 medium sized onion, finely chopped
  4. 1/4 cup capsicum or bell pepper, finely chopped
  5. 1/4 cup mushrooms, finely chopped
  6. 2 medium sized tomatoes, finely chopped
  7. 2 cloves of garlic, grated or finely chopped
  8. 2 to 3 green chillies, finely chopped
  9. 1/2 teaspoon chilli flakes
  10. 1/2 teaspoon oregano
  11. 1/2 teaspoon Italian seasoning
  12. 2 teaspoon oil (preferably olive oil)
  13. Few slices of mozzarella cheese or 1 to 1 and 1/2 cup grated mozzarella
  14. For the butter topping:
  15. 1/4 cup salted butter, melted
  16. 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder or grated garlic (optional)
  17. 1/2 to 1 teaspoon oregano
  18. 1/4 teaspoon chilli flakes (optional)


  1. This involves 4 quick steps, making the filling, layering the toppings on the pav, brushing the top with the butter mixture and then baking it.
  2. To make the filling, in a saucepan, heat the oil and add the onions, garlic and green chillies. Saute on a medium heat till the onions are soft and the garlic is sauted well so that the raw smell goes away.
  3. Add in the chopped mushrooms with a little salt and saute for a few more seconds. Stir in the bell pepper, chilli flakes, oregano and Italian seasoning and mix it well. Fry for a few seconds more on a medium flame.
  4. Add the tomatoes, salt to taste and a pinch of sugar and cook it on a medium heat for about 1 to 2 minutes or till the tomatoes are soft and the flavors have blended well. Then remove from heat and keep it aside to cool a bit.
  5. To assemble the pizza pavs, cut the pav rolls in half. Layer the bottom half of the rolls on a greased baking pan.
  6. Start layering the pavs, first a layer of the mozzarella slices, then the vegetable toppings, then another layer of mozzarella slices on top. Top these with the top part of the pav rolls.
  7. Melt the butter in a microwave or stove top and brush the tops of the pavs with them. Sprinkle the oregano, garlic powder and chilli flakes over it.
  8. Cover it loosely with a foil. Bake at 350 degrees F or 180 degrees C for about 10 minutes, then remove the foil and bake for another 10 minutes.
  9. Check to see if the cheese has melted, if not, bake it for a few more minutes. Then pull apart the pavs and enjoy this easy twist on pizza!
