How to make Open cheese sandwich with pesto

  1. Take some warm water in a bowl. Add in yeast and sugar and allow it to ferment for 10-15 minutes. Once it froths, use it to make the dough.
  2. Take wheat flour, add in proofed yeast, salt to taste, oil, milk powder and knead the dough.
  3. Cover and keep in a warm place till the dough doubles in size. (30-45 minutes)
  4. Knead the dough properly after it doubles, grease the oven proof plate and place the dough on it. (I flattened it in a mould)
  5. Give milk wash and again keep it for proofing for 30 - 45 minutes. Once it doubles in size again, bake it in pre heated oven at 180°C for 10 minutes.
  6. For making pesto sauce: In a mixer jar add washed basil leaves, pine nuts, sesame seeds, cheese, salt, oil and green chilies. (you can add garlic cloves also)
  7. Churn till u get a smooth paste, add more oil or water to make it a smooth paste.
  8. Allow the bread to cool, apply butter and then pesto sauce.
  9. Add chopped bell peppers, parboiled baby corns, olives, jalapenos. (I don't use jalapeno when I make this for my daughter).
  10. Grate mozarella on top and spread cheese spread on top. (I completely cover it)
  11. Sprinkle oregano and slightly roasted sesame seeds.
  12. Now bake it in pre heated oven at 200°C for 10 - 15 minutes. Or it turns slightly brown.

My Tip:

You can add pizza sauce with pesto sauce. You can chop bell peppers, add salt and oregano and marinate it for 10-15 minutes before assembly.
