How to Make Veg Pizza

  • To activate the yeast, mix it in a cup of warm water. Let it sit for about 10 mins until creamy.
  • In a bowl combine 2 cups of flour, sugar and salt.
  • Mix all these dry ingredients.
  • Add 1 tbsp of olive oil to all the dry ingredients.
  • Pour in the yeast mixture and enough water to knead the dough until it forms a soft and elastic ball.
  • The dough should be soft not sticky.
  • If it is too sticky, add a bit more flour and knead it for another minute or so.
  • Place the dough in a greased bowl and turn to coat all sides of the dough with olive oil.
  • Cover with plastic wrap or a small wet towel.
  • Allow the dough to rise in a warm place for about 1-2 hrs, until it doubles in size, then punch it down.
  • Pre-heat oven to 475 degrees F.
  • Knead the dough again for 2-3 mins on a lightly floured surface.
  • Form dough into a round ball and roll out into 4 6-inch circles with the help of a rolling pin.
  • Put the rolled out pizza crust on the greased pizza pan or cookie sheet (putting it on cookie sheet or aluminium foil makes cleaning easier).
  • Spread a layer of peeled tomato on top, leaving a one inch margin along the edges. Sprinkle with a handful of mozzarella and parmesan cheese.
  • Spread mushrooms, bell peppers, red onion and pineapple (you can substitute any vegetable or fruit for your pizza topping).
  • Top with the remaining mozzarella, parmesan cheese, chilli flakes, oregano and basil.
  • Bake it for 20-30 mins at 400 degrees F until crust is golden.
  • Let it stand for 5-10 mins before slicing.
