Prep Time 10 minutes
Cook Time 12 minutes
Total Time 22 minutes
- Mozarella cheese as required
- Pizza seasoning as required
- Red chilly flakes
- ¼ tsp black pepper powder
- Pizza pasta sauce as required
- red bell pepper, yellow bell pepper, green capsicum, black olives, chopped onions, boiled sweet corns Thinly sliced veggies as required
In a large mixing bowl put 2 cups of all purpose flour/ maida, baking powder, soda, salt, sugar and mix all the dry ingredients very well. Now make a well in the center and add yogurt ( I have used little sour yogurt for better result but if you don’t have can use fresh one also). Now nix it well with your hands and to make soft and smooth dough add water as needed. Gradually add water, do not pour at once otherwise dough will become thin.
Lastly, add 1 tsp of olive oil and knead it again to make smooth dough. Grease your hands with some oil and pat on top of the dough so that it nicely get coated with oil and does not get dry.
Once the dough is ready, divide it into two parts. You can also divide the dough into 3 to 4 parts if you like to make thin pizza.
Take one part of the dough and roll out in your palms and dust the counter top/rolling surface with some dry flour and roll it out with the help of rolling pin into ½ inch thickness as it will puff up little bit when its cooked.
You can also stretch the dough by using finger tips and make it flat.
Prick it with the help of fork so that it will not fluff up while cooking.
Heat non-stick pan on medium flame and when the pan becomes little hot place the rolled out pizza dough into the hot tawa and cook it on low flame for 3-4 minutes until it gets light brown from downward side.
After 4 minutes flip it over and spread pizza pasta sauce evenly all around the cooked side of pizza base. I have used homemade pizza sauce but it’s also available in the market.
Now sprinkle black pepper, pizza seasoning on top of the pizza pasta sauce.
Now spread thick layer of grated mozzarella cheese, topped with veggies as per your liking. Sprinkle little salt and drizzle little oil on top and all around the sides so that base becomes slightly crisp.
Cover the lid and cook on low flame for 6-7 minutes or till the cheese melts and base is cooked.
After 7 minutes uncover the lid and take out the pizza from the pan.
To give real Italian touch, sprinkle some pizza seasoning on top and to make it spicy sprinkle chilly flakes.
Cut Veg pizza into slices and serve hot.
