In this recipe everything is homemade except mozzarella cheese. This is a basic vegetable pizza and I have used onion, tomato and capsicum. You can use your own veggies for the pizza like corn, mushrooms, paneer and so many. 

This veggie pizza recipe is a request from one of my Facebook Foodie group fans , have taken the recipe idea from food channels but make pizza in my own way. I think it's time to say goodbye to all pizza corner. Now we can also make the pizza at home with simple process.

Let's start the vegetable pizza recipe step by step process.

1. Making the Pizza Bread / You can buy pizza bread from market also.
2. Making Pizza Sauce

3. Assemble the pizza


Tawa Pizza :

Recipe For making dough

Maida (all purpose flour) - 2 cup
Oil - 2 tbsp
Salt - ½ tsp
Sugar - 1 tsp
Instant yeast - 1 tsp 

Tip : For those who want yeast-free pizza. They can use both baking soda as well as baking powder instead of yeast

For pizza topping  

Capsicum - 1/2
Onion - 1 nos
Tomato - 1 nos
Pizza sauce - ½ cup
Mozzarella cheese - ½ cup
Italian mix herbs / Oregano - ½ tsp

Preparation Method : 

How to make Pizza on Tawa

1. Strain maida in a bowl, add dry instant yeast, oil, salt and sugar. Mix all ingredients well with help of lukewarm water knead the flour.

2. Knead the dough for 5-7 minutes until it becomes soft.

3. Grease a bowl and place dough in it for 2 hours so that it gets fermented well. Dough for making pizza is ready. 

Note : If you are using dry yeast instead of instant yeast, then mix it in sugar and lukewarm milk so that it becomes active.

Prepare topping for the pizza

1. Cut capsicum, remove all its seeds and slice it thinly or as per you choice.

2. Cut onion in semi-circled and tomatoes in small round pieces. First cook capsicum and vegetables for 2 minutes in 1/2 tbsp of oil, stir well . Then use the same pan to cook tomatoes, flip tomatoes after 2 seconds so the can cook on both the sides.

3. Take half amount of pizza and make a round ball. With help of dry maida make a ½ cm thick chapatti with a diameter of 10-12 inch.

4. Preheat a pan or tawa. If you are not using non stick pan, then grease it with little oil and place pizza inside it. Cover it and cook for 2 minutes or until the lower side gets little brown.

5. Flip it up side down and reduce the flame to minimum.

6. Garnish pizza with topping. Firstly layer pizza sauce and then place capsicum, onion and tomato on the pizza as shown in below pic.

7. Sprinkle lots of grated mozzarella cheese as well from top. Cover pizza and cook for 5-6 minutes on medium flame until the cheese gets melted and the lower side gets little brown. 

8. Keep checking after every 2 minutes. Very delicious pizza is made.
