Pizza lovers need not go far to taste it. They need not spend hundreds of rupees. They can make tasty pizza at home itself. However, they would need to spend some time and energy for it. Some ingredients too need to be bought, to make pizza.


Pizza is liked by many, from children to elders. It can be consumed at all times. The quality and hygiene of readymade pizzas are suspect. Let us see how to prepare pizza at home:

Ingredients
representational imageMaida 2 cups; dried yeast 2 tsps; oil 1 tsp; sugar or honey 1/4 tsp, salt 1/2 a tsp, one cup warm water: These are necessary of the pizza base. Readymade pizza base is available in the market. For pizza topping, you need, onion 1 (chopped), Green, Red and Yellow bell peppers (capsicum), half of each variety chopped or one-and-a-half green capsicum chopped, tomato 1 chopped, green chillies 2 chopped, fresh sweet corn kernels 2 tsps.

Method
Making the pizza involves three steps: Pizza base, arranging the toppings, and cooking in the microwave oven.
  • First mix the yeast and sugar or honey, thoroughly, in warm water. Keep it aside for 15 minutes. Notice that the mixture is doubled.
  • Take a big bowl. Mix the maida and salt together, with fingers. Add the yeast mixture as well as oil to this and mix again. While mixing, if the dough is watery, mix some more maida. If it is too stiff, add some warm water. Prepare the dough until it is soft and pliable. Add a drop of oil at the end and mix again. Keep it aside, covered, for two hours.
  • representational imageNotice that the dough rises, after two hours. Make four equal balls and keep them aside again for 20-30 minutes. If you want a bigger pizza, make only two balls of the dough.
  • Roll out one of the balls like a thick roti. The thickness should be at least 1/2 an inch. The size of the pizza may vary. But the thickness should be at least 1/2 inch. Now apply one tsp. of pizza sauce all over the base.
  • Now arrange the onions, tomatoes, capsicum, sweet corn, green chillies, one by one in that order. This should be cooked for five minutes, in the oven that is heated at 350 degrees C. Then cook it for 15 minutes, in normal heat (maximum). The base will turn golden brown and the vegetables will be cooked. These are the signs that the pizza is ready.
  • This can be eaten directly or with some sauce or pepper powder. Left over dough for the pizza base should be wrapped in foil or stored in airtight box in the freezer for using again.
Time taken to prepare the pizza is 20 minutes and that taken for cooking it is 15 minutes. Total time is 35 minutes. The measurements given above are sufficient for four regular pizzas. Each pizza contains 320 calories. The quantity of the flour and other ingredients can be increased for more number of pizzas. Or the size of the pizzas can be reduced.

Sliced mushrooms, shredded chicken, or paneer can be added. Grated cheese can be sprinkled on the toppings, before cooking. You can follow the instructions in the booklet that comes along with your oven, for cooking the pizza.
