🍕HOME MADE PIZZA🍕
PIZZA PIZZA PIZZA The ultimate comfort food for all of us.
Just the name of Pizza brings a smile on everybody’s face n twinkle in the eyes n not to forget grumbling in the stomach.
Making Pizza base at home was a totally alien thing for me. It was not at all my thing. But I started out with making Garlic bread n then the bug took its course. Thought of making Pizza base also.
Tried n succeed.
The best compliment came from my son”Mom, yours is far more yummy n tasty then California Pizza Kitchen(His fav Pizza Joint).
To make the base bit towards healthier side I’ve used All Purpose Flour n Whole wheat Flour in the ratio of 1:1.
🍞1 cup plain flour (Maida)
🍞1 cup wholewheat flour(Atta)
🍞Salt to taste
🍞2 tbsp olive oil
🍞2 tsp instant yeast
🍞1 tsp sugar
🍞Lukewarm water enough to make a dough(¼th- ½ cup)
2:Pizza Sauce ( I’ve used the store bought one)
3: TOPPINGS: With Pizza you can always feel free to choose the toppings. Theres no hard n fast rule for how to cut veggies n how much to use them.
You can increase or decrease the toppings according to your choice.
I topped it up with-
🍞Take lukewarm water, add sugar, yeast and mix well.
🍞Combine the maida,atta, salt, 1.5 tbsp olive oil in a deep bowl and mix well.
🍞Add the yeast water at the center and knead into a smooth dough.
🍞Knead for atleast 10 min, its important to get a soft sticky dough, add little water if required.
🍞Form a ball, grease it with olive oil and keep it covered at a warm place for about 1-2 hours.
🍞The dough will rise well almost double to its original size. Punch it.
🍞Sprinkle some maida on a clean surface n take 1/4th of the dough and roll it out to almost 6″ big round shape.
🍞Prick with a fork to release the air.
🍕Apply Pizza sauce.
🍕Sprinkle some Mozzarella cheese.
🍕Top it with your choice of toppings.
🍕Sprinkle some more mozzarella cheese.
🍕Bake in a Preheated oven @200 degrees centigrade for 15-20 min or till golden brown.
