  • How to Make Easy Homemade Pizza:

    3. Add luke warm water and mix well with your hands until the yeast becomes frothy and dissolves completely.
    4. 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.
    5. Add melted butter to the dough and knead well until well incorporated.
    6. Rest the dough for 1 hour covering the bowl with cling film or wet towel.
    7. The dough would raise to double its volume.
    8. After an hour, knock down the air in the dough and divide the dough into three parts.
    9. 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).
    10. Prick holes with fork.
    11. Place on greased tray and let it raise for another 10 mins.
    12. Preheat the oven to 210 C and bake for 10 mins.
    13. Allow it to cool on wire rack.
    14. Cover and store in the fridge until use.

    16. Place the bread base on the baking tray.
    17. Spread two tbsp of pizza sauce on the base evenly.
    18. Arrange the baby corn, paneer cubes, diced onion, tomato and bell peppers and sprinkle grated cheese over the pizza.
    19. Microwave it at maximum temperature for 3 mins or until the cheese melts completely.
