ABOUT Whole Wheat Pizza RECIPE

Getting the Pizza right at home is a challenge. My mother loves pizzas with a wheat flour base and a thin crust at that. I thought I would bite the bullet and try it out this weekend! Above all, I followed the Tawa style of cooking, so no oven used here, unless you want to.

  1. Soak yeast in a bowl with luke warm water, sugar and 1 tsp salt. Stir and leave aside for 10 mins till it is frothy.

  5. Heat olive oil in a pan,add the tomato puree. Let it simmer on a medium flame for about 5 mins. Add garlic powder, chilli flakes, salt, other dry masalas if desired and the dried herbs, stir for 1 minute and remove.
  6. Spread 1 tbsp sauce on the cooked side of the pizza. Arrange the rest of the toppings and sprinkle grated cheese.
  7. Place the prepared pizza base back on the tawa so that the uncooked side is directly on the pan now. Cover and cook on a low heat for about 7-8 mins till cheese starts bubbling and turns golden brown.
  8. Serve it warm for best taste.
