Vegetable Pizza (with Wheat base)

My interest in baking started after we came to US. Initially we were in Chicago and were there for about 2 years. That was the time I started using the conventional oven in the apartment. Most of us start by baking a cake or so. But my first experiment was to make a Vegetable pizza. After few trials, I successfully made the pizza. We just fell in love with the home-made pizza and I prepared it very often then. Nowadays, I don't prepare this very often as my son is not fond of pizzas, but I was wondering why I missed out sharing it in my blog !! 

I feel making a pizza at home is one of the easiest task. So guys, why do you want to buy a pizza or wait for a pizza delivery to home when you can make lovely pizzas at home :). I have used Wheat flour here for the pizza base which makes it very healthy. Add the veggie toppings as you desire. Except the resting time for dough, it's just simple and quick to make. I couldn't click better pics as we were very eager to grab the pizza :)



What you need?

For Pizza Base:

1 cup Wheat flour
1 tsp active dry Yeast
1/2 tsp Sugar
1/2 tsp Salt
2-3 tsp Olive oil
Italian Seasoning
Water 


For Toppings:

(Add as per your preference)

Pizza Sauce
Onion,Bell Pepper chopped and Corn
Pepper/Red Chilli flakes
Salt
Cheese
Italian Seasoning

How to prepare?

Warm 1/4 cup of water. Dissolve yeast and sugar into this. Leave this aside for 5-10 minutes so that it would become frothy. 

Mix wheat flour and salt well. Add the yeast mixture to this. Sprinkle some Italian seasoning. Combine well and form a dough by adding water as required. Finally add the oil and knead well. Keep this dough in a vessel covered with a wet cloth and leave it in a warm place. Let the dough rest for about 45 minutes - 1 hour or until the dough increases to double the volume. 

Now take the dough and knead again well. Using a rolling pin, roll it into a flat round base with medium thickness. I divided the dough into two equal portions and made 2 bases. 

Preheat the oven to 425F. Line a baking tray with aluminium foil. Slightly grease it with oil.

Transfer the pizza base onto the tray. Spread some pizza sauce on top of the base, leaving a little space on all sides. Put the veggies as toppings. Sprinkle some salt and pepper. 


Spread some cheese on top. 


Bake it in the oven for 15-20 minutes until base turns slight brown and cheese is melted.


Wait for a few minutes before cutting the pizza. Sprinkle some Red chilli flakes and Italian seasoning if you desire.



Notes:
* You can use All purpose flour or Maida instead of Wheat flour.
* Add vegetables you prefer as toppings.
* Do not roll the dough very thin, base might become crispy once baked.

Looks good sobha. My first home made pizza was big disaster and after 4 attempts I am ok with it now. I like this tempting pizza. BTW, did you use the atta flour what we use for chapathi for base? or the whole wheat stuff we use for cakes and breads?

Sobha Shyam said...

Thank you all for the lovely comments.

@Uma: I used the atta which we use for making chapathis.
