      If you're travelling around in Amritsar on a rickshaw, the word 'Kulcha' is sure to pass you by. As you go down the streets on a rickshaw, the aromatic smell of Amritsar Kulcha will catch your attention. Crunchy on the outside and soft on the inside, the Kulcha is an Indian flatbread that is baked in a tandoor and served hot. Usually, it's stuffed with a filling made from potatoes, paneer, pesto o ... r of some sort but we've taken the liberty to reinvent it and come up with this amazing Kulcha Pizza recipe. King Shah Jahan's royal chef was the one who thought of making Kulchas. When he presented the king his creation, His Majesty loved it so much that he made it a breakfast staple. Although most Kulchas use all-purpose flour (maida) for baking, we suggest using coconut flour for our Kulcha pizza recipe if you want it to be gluten-free. What if you're craving Indian and American food both at the same time? That's what our Kulcha Pizza restaurant-style homemade meal addresses. Loaded with luscious gooey cheese, pizza sauce and a medley of colourful vegetables, you get the best of both worlds with every bite. The exotic spices bring out the flavour and make it truly Indian fusion. You can prepare Kulcha pizza at home by simply following our recipe.
