How to Make Easy Homemade Pizza

  • For the bread base: Take maida in a large mixing bowl and make a well in the center.
  • Put sugar, salt and instant yeast in the center of the well.
  • Add luke warm water and mix well with your hands until the yeast becomes frothy and dissolves completely.
  • Now gradually add the maida into the yeast mixture and enough water and knead for about 20 mins incorporating air bubbles, and make a soft dough.
  • Add melted butter to the dough and knead well until well incorporated.
  • Rest the dough for 1 hour covering the bowl with cling film or wet towel.
  • The dough would raise to double its volume.
  • After an hour, knock down the air in the dough and divide the dough into three parts.
  • Flour the work surface and roll a ball into a flat disk of desired thickness (depends on how thick you like your pizza crust to be).
  • Prick holes with fork.
  • Place on greased tray and let it raise for another 10 mins.
  • Preheat the oven to 210 C and bake for 10 mins.
  • Allow it to cool on wire rack.
  • Cover and store in the fridge until use.
  • This quantity would make 3 medium sized bread bases. For vegetable cheese pizza:
  • Place the bread base on the baking tray.
  • Spread two tbsp of pizza sauce on the base evenly.
  • Arrange the baby corn, paneer cubes, diced onion, tomato and bell peppers and sprinkle grated cheese over the pizza.
  • Microwave it at maximum temperature for 3 mins or until the cheese melts completely.
  • Serve topped with Italian herbs and chilly flakes.
