  • 3/4 cup water

For the base sauce:

  • 4 medium Tomatoes blanched and finely chopped
  • 1/2 tsp Oregano
  • 5-6 Garlic
  • 1/2 tsp Black pepper
  • 1 tsp oil
  • 1/2 tsp salt

  • 2 Capsicum
  • 3 Baby corn
  • 6-8 Mushroom sautéed
  • 1 cube Cheese
  • shredded chicken, egg, spinach, yellow corn, onions, sun-dried tomatoes, etc. *optional

Instructions

For the pizza base

  • Take water in a bowl and warm it up slightly. (* Note- The water needs to be warm, not hot) Add in the sugar and let it dissolve. Then add in the yeast. Leave it aside for 10-15 mins till it froths up. (* If the frothing doesn’t happen to discard the yeast)
  • In a large vessel take the whole wheat flour and add in the salt, oil, and herbs *if you like.
  • Finally, add in the frothed yeast and mix the flour with a spatula.
  • Gradually add in the water and start mixing the dough. Knead it, till it is soft and pliable.
  • Cover it with a damp muslin and leave it aside for about 2 hours till it doubles in size.

For the pizza base sauce:

  • Heat oil in a wok. 
  • Add in the garlic and let it turn translucent. (* I like mine slightly browned)
  • Then add in the finely chopped blanched tomatoes and leave them to cook.
  • Sprinkle the salt, pepper, oregano and adjust it as per personal taste.
  • Let the sauce simmer a bit and leave it aside.

Making of the pizza

  • Take the pizza dough and knead it gently. Divide the dough into 4 parts. Leave it again for 15-30 mins.
  • Oil the oven tray. Place one of the dough balls on it and gently press the dough to spread it evenly. *I like my pizza to be thin crust so I make it slightly thinner. Brush some oil on it.
  • Side by side preheat the oven at 200 c for 15 mins.
  • Pour some pizza base sauce on the dough evenly.
  • Place the topping as you like on the pizza. Sprinkle some cheese * if you like.
  • Set it for baking for 15-20 mins.
  • Serve hot
