Finally i made it last week for my kids and surprised them after the came back from school. I made it into mini pizza so that it will be easy for me to share the pizza among  my 2 kids!

  • Punch down the dough and roll it on a floured surface.
  • With a sharp lid or cookie cutter, cut it down into mini pizzas. If you want to continue with the regular big pizza ,you can skip this step.
  • Place the cut pizza base in  a baking tray lined with parchment paper.

  • Arrange the veggies on the top. Mix little bit of salt to the veggies.
  • Add cheese on the top. Actually i added bit less. As the grated cheese packet which i used was little bit small and i wanted to make it equally distributed for all pizza.
  • Sprinkle chilli flakes and oregano to this.
Add veggies Add cheese
  • Bake this in a the Oven for 10 to 12 minutes or till the cheese melts at 170 degree C.

Note:
  • I used carrots, capsicums and onions for toppings. You can use any veggie of your choice. Olives, mushrooms and even only tomatoes and cheese can be used.
  • You can replace half cup of all purpose flour with whole wheat flour. Don't make it 3/4 + 3/4. It may be thick and dry.
  • Always ensure the water you soak the yeast is luke warm. If it is too hot the yeast will not rise , if it is too cold also it won't raise.

  14. Pizzas look nice. But yeast quantity is quite high for quantity of flour. Just 1 tap yeast gives good results. Adding 1 tbsp milk powder enhances taste of pizza. Please try it.
