Finally!!!! Made a veggie pizza from scratch, which was due in my must-try items for almost a year now! It really turned out good(meaning of my good is not the same as you know). I loved the thin crust, no intention of making it thin, but it just happened to be a thin crust! and the flavors of the herbs like basil, oregano, garlic was giving me a satisfaction it smells like pizza. In addition to prove I'm an amateur pizza baker, I have added a tsp of chat masala on top of crust before adding the mozzarella cheese.
Added decent amount of veggies like color peppers, onion and spinach. After all this! I was generous to leave some pizza on my plate, My intuition was telling me not to take risk alone...you know?!
If at all anyone courageous enough to try my version of pizza, I'm so honored! and please follow the recipe very strictly :)
All purpose flour 51/2 oz
Warm Water 1/2 cup
Dry yeast- 1tsp
Salt 1tsp, Olive oil tbsp
Tomato paste 2 tbsp
Chat masala 1tsp
Chopped veggies 1/2 cup
Mozzarella cheese 4 oz
Mix the dry yeast in the warm water.
Mix the salt and flour together, add the warm water in to the dough and knead well using mixer or hand. add a tbsp of olive oil and mix well.
Allow to rise for 3 hours in a clean bowl covered with a kitchen towel. It rises about double the size.
Put the dough on the working surface, use little flour to avoid sticking, roll it and place it over the baking sheet.
Shape the outer layer of the pizza dough.
Now, The Battle Begins !!
Heat your oven to 475F and bake your pizza dough for exactly 11 mins, baking more, will burn the crust. Take it out and don't remove the crust from the baking sheet. Spread the tomato paste, add the chat masala, mozzarella cheese and layer your veggies on top of it. Bake it again for not more than 9 mins in 475F. Remove the pizza from oven and .... Please let me know how it turned out for you.
Hint: Adding the topping and baking the crust at one shot will make the crust little soggy.
