Homemade Pizza

Hare Krsna!!

Pizza is an oven baked flat round bread topped with sauce and vegetables.
We Love Pizza... But pizzas we get at restaurants contain onions and garlic and that is why many people who follow sattvic diet can not consume them. I often have cravings for pizzas so I looked for a nice and easy recipe to make the same. Hence I noted many recipes and adapted the following recipe. I hope you all will also like  this.


for base:
All purpose flour(Maida): 1 1/2 cups
Whole Wheat flour: 1 1/2 cups
Olive oil: 1 tbsp
Salt: 1tsp
Sugar: 1/2tsp
Yeast: 1tbsp
Water: as required

vegetables of your choice: 1 cup (I used corns, paneer, capsicum)
Mozzarella Cheese: 1 cup
Pizza Sauce: 1/2 cup

Warm 2tbsp water and add yeast and sugar. Let it rest for 2-3 minutes. Mix maida, whole wheat flour, olive oil and salt in a mixing bowl. Add yeast into this mixture. Now knead a dough adding small water slowly. knead for 5-10 minutes till it becomes a ball. Now grease this dough with some oil and keep this covered in a big bowl. Bowl should be big enough as the dough will rise. Now let the dough rise for minimum an hour. You will see that dough has doubled in size.

In the mean time make pizza sauce.

Preheat oven at 220 c.

Now take the dough and divide in equal size balls. With the given quantity you can make around 8 small pizzas or 4 big ones. This also depends on how thin you want your pizza. Now roll the ball with rolling pin and make a chapati like base. I made 1/4 inch thick bases. Put this base on the pizza plate.

Put a table spoon of pizza sauce and spread on the base. Put the vegetables/toppings of your choice. Sprinkle one table spoon of mozzarella cheese.

Bake at 220 c for 10 minutes.

Offer to Lord and enjoy.

Hari Bol!!!
