‘Pizza’ – the word itself is so tempting then how could one resist eating it?! I have always thought of baking a pizza including the base at home. All thanks to this wonderful lady Divya who took a nice session on baking which included pizza making as well and now it’s my turn to prepare pizza.


For Pizza Base –

  • Yeast 2 tsps
  • Water 1 1/3 cups
  • All purpose flour 1 1/2 cups + 1/2 cups
  • Wheat flour 1 1/2 cups
  • Powdered sugar 2 tbsps
  • Salt 1 tsp
  • Oil 5 tbsps

For the topping –

  • Pizza Sauce 3 tbsps
  • Mozzarella cheese as needed
  • Baby corn 5
  • Red Bell pepper 1
  • Yellow Bell pepper 1
  • Onion 1


  • Heat water in a vessel on the stove top till it is mild hot.
  • To a tall glass add 1 tbsp sugar and yeast.
  • To this put the Luke warm water and give it a quick stir
  • Let the Yeast raise for 10 minutes
  • Add all the dry ingredients to a large mixing bowl
  • Add milk, oil, yeast mixture to this
  • Using a strong spatula mix the batter consistently, yet hold and steady till all the ingredients are thoroughly incorporated and a sticky dough is formed
  • To a clean table/ kitchen counter, sprinkle some flour and drop the sticky dough
  • Knead the dough for 12 mins [press the dough -> push -> pull it together using your palm] to develop gluten
  • Finish of the dough with a sprinkle of flour to lift up the dough and put it back to the bowl for raising
  • After it doubles in size, punch down the air
  • Divide the dough and roll into a 1/2 inch round base.
  • To make double burst make the round a little bigger
  • On the circumference of the base, arrange the cheese gratings and cover the cheese by rolling around the circumference.
  • Brush the pizza sauce, sprinkle with cheese and top the veggies
