Homemade Pizza

Long weekends are always a much-awaited event. With days spent in planning the perfect weekend, the execution is left to the mercy of our ever-changing moods. A slow start to such events sets in a mood for other activities as well.. Cooking is no exception. On one hand we desire to eat something delectable.. something that will completely suit well to our palate.. and on the other hand we want easy food.. which will not require much effort. And that perfect meal is a Home Made pizza!!

The sheer smell of a homemade pizza, that’s well done 🙂 , just fills up a room, and serves as an entree to your pizza in itself.

Following is the recipe:   Since this was a last minute recipe, we had to work with the ingredients at hand. Unfortunately, yeast wasn’t one of them. 🙂

Pizza dough:

2  c. flour
2 3/4 tsp. baking powder
1 tsp. salt
1 tbsp. oil
3/4 to 1 cup water

Toppings:

Onion
Capsicum
Bell Peppers (All julienned!! )
Black Olives
Jalapenos
Baby corn
American Corn kernels
Parmesan Cheese (grated)

Pizza-Chopped Veggies

Procedure:


1.Mix the dry ingredients. Add 3/4 cup water and oil. Stir until it forms a ball. If dough is stiff, add more water. The dough will be soft, not sticky.
2. Knead on a floured surface for 3-4 minutes.

3. Preheat the oven to 200°C for 10min.
4. After the base is ready, spread the pizza sauce. We used ready-made pizza sauce. Spread it perfectly until the edges.

5. Sprinkle the grated cheese, generously over the sauce. Add your choice of toppings in the quantities you wish. 🙂 Sprinkle a little salt and pepper and oregano.

6. Sprinkle a little more cheese. Remember this cheese just binds the toppings to the layer beneath. The actual contribution to the pizza is done by the lower cheese layer.
7. Bake at 200°C for 15-25 minutes or until the cheese start bubbling!
