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.

  1. 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.
