  • 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 FOR THE BASE DOUGH

Take the warm milk + warm sugar + yeast + sugar in bowl .Mix the mixture well , 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.

INGREDIENTS FOR TOPPING

  • Pizza sauce – 2 tbsp or as required
  • Finely chopped deseeded tomato + onion + capsicum + corn + paneer etc
  • Finely chopped mushroom + chopped black olives
  • Chopped chicken tikka /sausages /salami for non vegetarians
  • Pizza cheese or mozrella cheese as required
  • Chilli flakes + mixed herbs

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  with 7 mm  .[adjust the thickness as per your wish ]

Transfer the base in a baking pan or tray.

Prick the base everywhere with a fork .

Spread the pizza sauce.

Sprinkle the grated cheese over the sauce.

Now add or arrange the toppings as you desire .

Cover the whole topping with grated cheese.

Drizzle few drops of olive oil .

Bake the pizza for 15 minutes or  till it is done.

Once done sprinkle mixed herbs / oregano + chilli flakes .

Drizzle tomato ketchup.

Cut it with a pizza cutter / knife / scissors .

Serve hot.

 

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 .
  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.

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