Ingredients

  • 1 & 1/2 cup All purpose flour/ Maida
  • 1 tbsp Active dry yeast*
  • ¼ cup Milk
  • ¼ cup Water
  • ½ tbsp Sugar - 1/2 tblsp
  • 3/4 tsp Salt - 3/4 tsp
  • Olive oil - 1/8 cup Extra virgin or melt butter
  • 2 tbsp Pasta sauce/ Pizza sauce

Toppings:

  • 1/2 Onion
  • 1/2 Tomato Chopped, De-seeded
  • 1/2 Capsicum chopped
  • 2 Baby corn slit length wise
  • 8 Paneer cubes
  • ½ tsp Tandoori masala powder
  • ½ tsp Garam masala powder
  • Mozzarella cheese grated, As needed

Instructions

  • Gather the ingredients needed.
  • In a large bowl, add lukewarm milk, water, sugar and yeast. Mix well using a whisk to dissolve the yeast completely. If you are not confident about the yeast, I would suggest proofing as suggested below the ingredients table.
  • Add the flour, salt and gather first. Knead to get a smooth dough.
  • Keep covered with a wet cloth or cling wrap the mouth of bowl. Set aside untill an hour.
  • After an hour it will be rised and doubled in size.
  • Punch down the dough.
  • Again knead to make a smooth pliable dough.
  • Roll out to a 14 inch disc using rolling pin. I usually roll in such a way that in the middle I thin out and outer part, thick.
  • Pat the sides to make the circle perfect as well as forming a rim to hold the melting cheese.
  • Prick with fork in the base to ensure easy cooking.
  • Spread the sauce generously covering the base, leaving out the rim and sprinkle some cheese. (Optional to spread cheese at this stage)
  • Arrange the toppings as desired and add the grated cheese to cover the toppings.
  • Lastly to make it Indian, I sprinkled the masala powders.
  • Grease a pizza pizza pan with olive oil or just dust with some flour.
  • Transfer the rolled pizza base to the baking pan. You can roll/ wrap the base in the rolling pin gently and un-wrap in the baking pan
  • Preheat the oven for 190 degree Celsius (375 F) and bake for 14 - 15 mins..till the base starts to turn golden and the cheese turns golden brown. The base should move freely which indicates a perfectly baked base.
  • Transfer to another solid surface and cut out into 6 or 8 pieces.

Notes

  • Proof the yeast if you are not confident about the quality.
  • Do not over do with cheese or toppings too much. It will lead to uncooked base.
  • Depending upon your oven, the baking time might vary. So experiment and fix your own temperature and timing.
