INGREDIENTS FOR THE BASE

  • Maida – 1 ½ cup
  • Dry yeast – 1 tbsp
  • Warm Milk – ¼ cup [ not hot ]
  • Warm Water – ¼ cup to knead the dough [ not hot ]
  • Sugar – ½ tbsp
  • Salt as required
  • Olive oil – 2 tbsp

METHOD

Mix the yeast well in warm milk + sugar, cover and keep aside for 10 mins till it becomes frothy. The yeast should dissolve completely and the mixture should double in quantity.

Add this mixture to the flour + salt + olive oil and knead it into a soft dough.[ you can sprinkle few drops if water is less]

Cover it with a wet cloth and keep aside for minimum 1 hr or more, for the dough to rise.

PREPARATION

  • Preheat the oven at 210 *  [I have used convectional mode ]
  • Grease the pizza pan or tray .

METHOD

After 1 hr again knead the dough again by punching.

Either divide the dough into 2 small balls to make 2 small pizzas or roll it into 1 thick base as shown in the pic.[adjust the thickness as per your wish ]

Transfer the base in a baking pan or tray.

Prick the base everywhere with a fork .

I divided the base into 4 by giving a cut, to make 4 different pizzas.

NOTES

  1. If the yeast doesn’t rise ,then make the mixture again with fresh ingredient .
  2. I did not make the base very thick .
  3. You can double the quantity of ingredients to make more pizzas.
  4. You can use toppings of your choice like baby corn ,corn ,paneer , zucchini ,sausage , salami etc
  5. You can also make cheese stuffed pizza – roll 2 bases then spread lot of cheese on one base and cover it with other base and continue with the procedure.
  6. Could not click the images well .
  7. Instead of pizza sauce you can try pasta sauce . I have used a readymade one.
  8. Don’t reduce the cheese , more the cheese better the taste.
  9. You can take a mixture of wheat flour + maida . [ 1:1 ]
  10. Don’t roll the base into very thick base or it will take more time to bake.
  11. You can also use different cheese.
  12. Instead of yeast you can use baking pwdr or baking soda.

I have made 4 different pizzas – mixed veges , olive + mushroom + chicken tikka + double cheese margarita.
