2 onions chopped
1 green capsicum chopped
1 red capsicum chopped
¼ tsp black pepper

To make bread Pizza with Cottage Cheese
Preheat your oven at 180 C for 7-8 minutes while you prepare the slices.
Cut bread slices in half so that you get 16 slices from 8 bread slices. You can cut a slice in 4 pieces if you are serving these as an appetizer as that will be easier to handle.
Heat 1 tbsp olive oil in a pan and sauté all the vegetables for 3-4 minutes. We don’t want to cook them too soft.
Add olives and spices. Add grated/crumbled paneer to the mixture and switch off the flame immediately. Do not cook paneer. Mix thoroughly, taste and adjust spices according to your taste.
Brush one side of slices with olive oil and spread cottage cheese mixture on the other side.
Put in the oven/tandoor to bake. We just want to crisp the bread slices. If you use white bread it may take longer than whole wheat bread to grill.
Serve hot with sauce or chutney.
