    How to make Whole Wheat Pizza

    1. Soak yeast in a bowl along with luke warm water, sugar and 1 tsp salt. Stir and leave aside for 10 minutes till it becomes frothy.
    2. Meanwhile sift together the flour and salt in a clean bowl. Make a well in the center and add the yeast mixture.
    3. Add 1 tbsp curd and knead into a soft but firm dough using sufficient water. Cover with a damp cloth and leave in a warm corner for about 1 1/2 hours or till it doubles in size.
    4. Take the dough on a floured counter and punch it lightly. Roll into a cylinder and divide into 6 equal portions. Roll the portions out into pizza bases of desired thickness. Prick all over gently with a fork.
    5. Bake the bases in the oven at 170-180 degree C for about 4-5 minutes (micro) or till half done.
    6. For the sauce - heat olive oil in a pan and add the tomato puree. Let simmer on low to medium flame for about 4-5 minutes. Add garlic powder, chili flakes, salt to taste and any other dry spice/masala you want to add.
    7. Spread about 1 tbsp sauce on the pizza base. Arrange the toppings leaving 1 cm space from the edges. Finally sprinkle grated cheese, you can be really generous here as a pizza without enough cheese isnt much fun!
    8. Bake at 200 Degree C in a pre-heated oven for 7-10 minutes or till the cheese melts and brown spots appear. Remove, cut into wedges and serve.

    My Tip:

    1. If you wish the dough to have more elasticity add 1 cup maida + 1 cup atta. 2. If you do not wish to use yeast, you can use 1 tsp Baking Powder, 1 tsp Baking Soda and required curd to knead the dough. 3. Do not over-cook the sauce as it will be cooked once more with the pizza.
