Home made vegetarian pizza

  Preparation Time : 1HR 15 mins | Cooking Time : 15  Mins |   Yields : 10 MINI PIZZAS

    All purpose flour  1 and 1/2 cup
    Dry yeast   2 and 1/2 tsp
    Warm water  1/2 cup
    Sugar  1/2 tsp
    Salt  1/2 tsp
    Olive oil   1 tblsp
    Grated mozzarella Cheese – 3/4 cup to 1 cup
     Pasta sauce   1/4 cup
     Red chilli flakes   As needed
     Oregano   as needed
      Mixed veggies (for pizza topping)*

*I used onions, green capsicum, red bell peppers and carrots.



    • Add the yeast, sugar and salt in luke warm .
    • Let this sit for ten minutes and stir nicely.

  • In a wide bowl add the flour and make a dent.
  • Pour in the  yeast mixture and knead it into a smooth dough. Add oil while kneading. You may need 1-2 tblsp extra water to knead the dough.

knead dough

  • Cover with a wet damp cloth or with a vessel and keep it aside for an hour.
  • The dough must have doubled  in size by this time. Mean while keep the veggies ready.

  • 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.

  • Pizzas are ready for serving.
  • 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.

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.
