Healthy Pizza- The easy way!!!

I have always wanted to make pizzas at home. And when I saw them in different blogs , cooking sites and Tv, I use to drool at the pictures and was more tempted to try it soon. I use to fall short of some ingredients or a proper recipe whenver I decided to make. But finally I used a recipe my friend suggested and the ingredients I saw in a cookery show and finally made pizza from scratch. It definitely tasted not only delicious, but is quite healthy too. I am surely going to make them again and it would be fun to try some new toppings too!!!

I would say, it is not soft as when made with all purpose flour.But as I substituted the flour with wheat flour, it was a bit crispy. Baking was not involved at all in this recipe. But next time, I am going to try other cooking options and other ingredients for the base as well as the toppings.

Ingredients

For the base
1 cup Wheat flour
1/2 cup Soya flour
1/2 cup Plain flour
1 tsp Yeast
1/2 cup Milk
1 tsp Sugar
1/2 tsp Salt
1 – 2 tsp Oil

Steps

    For the base
  1. Add the yeast in warm milk and keep it for 5 minutes till it froths. In a large bowl, add rest of the ingredients except oil. Now add the milk- yeast mixture and knead to a loose and smooth dough using the oil. Now leave it covered in th ebowl for 2 hours. It will rise to some extent.
  2. Then place the dough on floured surface and knead for a few more minutes. Make small balls with the dough. Roll each ball into a slightly thick circle( as that of paratha). Now grill the base for 2 minutes. Your base is ready.

Note- Its better to have a thin crusted base to ensure proper grilling.

Ingredients-

For Pizza sauce

Tomato- 2 big

Onion- 1 big

Ginger garlic- 1tsp finely crushed

Ingredients

For the topping
1 Capsicum- cut into long pieces
1 Onion- Sliced
4 – 5 Mushrooms- chopped
1/2 tsp Salt
1 tsp Oil
