Instructions
 

For dough

  • In a mixing bowl, add wheat flour, white flour, baking powder, baking soda, sugar, salt, curd, and oil.
  • Mix well with your fingertips for even mixing, then add water little by little and knead to form a semi-soft dough not too stiff not too loose just like our paratha dough.
  • Cling wrap the dough and leave aside for at least 2 hours in a warm place.
  • Meanwhile, prepare the two sauces.

For white sauce

  • Add 1 tbsp butter to a pan. Then add chopped garlic cloves and sauté it.
  • Add 1 tbsp maide and sauté till it changes its color.
  • Add milk and stir continuously.
  • Then add salt and cook till the sauce thicken.

For instant pizza sauce

  • In a bowl, add tomato sauce, red chili sauce, and red chili flakes, and mix herbs in it.
  • Mix well.

Making pizza

  • After 2 hours, punch down and divide the dough into 3 equal balls.
  • Take a ball and flatten it thick or thin as per your liking, I made a medium thick base. Prick with a fork.
  • Arrange heavy bottom tawa on gas.
  • Carefully transfer the base to the tawa. Simmer and cook for 3 minutes on low flame.
  • Grease tawa with oil then flip to another side of the pizza.
  • Spread pizza sauce, and white sauce and arrange chopped onion, chopped capsicum, and chopped tomatoes on it.
  • Sprinkle red chili flakes and pizza seasoning on it.
  • Cover and cook for 8-10 minutes on low flame or until pizza is cooked from both side and the base become crispy.
  • Switch off, remove and cut into wedges and serve immediately

Notes

  • Use a thick bottom pan for making a pizza recipe because a heavy bottom pan avoids burning the pizza base.
  • Knead pizza dough for around 10 to 12 min for a soft and smooth dough. If you do not knead the dough properly then the base will be chewy.
  • Roll the pizza dough slightly thin, so that the pizza base gets cooked quickly.
  • I flip side of cooking pizza on tawa, which helps the veggies, as well as cheese, not get golden.
  • Pizza is cooked on low flame.
  • Finally, pizza made from this recipe is soft inside with crispy edges.
