  • Pound together garlic, chilli powder, salt and clove-cinnamon powder.
  • Add all ingredients except corn flour and let it simmer for 5 mins.
  • Mix corn flour in 1/2 cup water to make a smooth paste.
  • Add this to the boiling sauce, stirring continuously to avoid lumps.
  • Stir and cook till thick enough to spread on pizza bread.
  • Cool, stirring occasionally, to prevent the surface from drying up.
  • To proceed:
  • Spread a ladleful of pizza sauce on the bread.
  • Arrange slices of onions and capsicum over the sauce.
  • Sprinkle coriander and cover with grated cheese.
  • Bake in a hot oven for 5 mins or till cheese melts and the base becomes crisp.
  • Cut into triangles and serve hot.
