Pizza for dinner is the easiest I would say, and with freshly plucked basil leaves is my favourite.
This time I decided to make the topping with raw green tomato,green capsicum,and
basil,and it really turned out great.
Now ,I’m going to share with you the easiest method of preparing this pizza.
For the tomato + capsicum topping ( for 4-5 medium sized pizza)
6-8 raw tomatoes
1-2 green capsicum
10-12 garlic cloves
1 tblsp olive oil or sesame oil
salt to taste.
Put all the ingredients in a pressure cooker ( no need to cut the vegetables) and cook for
two whistles on a slow fire.
Release steam,and puree to a thick paste.
Cook again till thick and set aside
For the dough
250 gm wheat flour
250 gm white flour
2 tsp.dry yeast
1 tblsp oil/butter
2 tsp sugar ( brown /white)
enough warm water to make the dough.
Activate the yeast by sprinkling yeast and sugar in half cup water and set aside till
Put all the ingredients together and knead to a firm dough and allow to rise
(If using mixer do use the dough hook and run the machine for 15 minutes .Allow to rise in a warm place covered for 20-30 minutes).Divide into portions and allow to rise again for another 10 minutes)
Mozzarella cheese,basil leaves,grated cottage cheese (optional),chilli flakes (optional)
Preparing to bake
Roll out into circles ,and place in baking trays.
Pour a ladle of the tomato puree and spread on the unbaked dough.
Sprinkle the cheese and basil leaves and bake in a hot oven (200-210 C) for 16 minutes .
You can serve with chilli flakes ,if you like.
This is a quick ,and easy dish .I made all this within an hour.It was crispy ,light,tangy.
Good to serve anytime.Got a thumbs up from my family,so do try and let me know your
