HOW TO MAKE A VEGETARIAN PIZZA


To start, you’ll need to pick your crust. If you’re eating strictly vegetarian, it’s a good bet that you’re focused on your health, in which case a whole wheat crust is probably your best option. It contains a number of vitamins and minerals not found in standard white flour crusts, and makes for a good companion to the fresh vegetables used on your pizza. You can either make your crust yourself, or buy ready base in the super market. A recipe to make your own can be found here.



Ingredients for VEGETARIAN PIZZA:

1/2 to 1  cup Cheddar Cheese grated
Olive oil
1 - Capsicum sliced
1 - Onions lengthwise sliced
1 - Pineapple sliced
4 - Button Mushrooms sliced
1 - Green chillies sliced (bajji chillies)
Olives (optional)

To prepare VEGETARIAN PIZZA:

1. Take a lump of dough, pat or roll into a non stick dosa pan (Pizza Base). Use dry flour to dust if required and spoon on a couple of tbsp of the tomato sauce, spreading it out over the surface of the pizza.
2. Arrange the vegetables  Capsicum, Onions, Pineapple, Mushrooms, Green chillies and  Olives on pizza. 
3. Sprinkle Cheddar Cheese evenly over the pizza then add little bit of olive oil and lastly take a brush and apply the olive oil on the edge of the pizza base to get crust.
4. Put Pizza base on the flame for 2 min (to avoid the rawness in the bottom of the pizza) then keep it  the oven and cook for about 7 to 10 minutes.
5. Healthy home made VEGETARIAN Pizza is ready to serve.

Before you start making pizza, here are some home-cooking tips from my experiments :
·        Preheat the oven. It needs to be hot enough to bake the crust in quickly so that the cheese doesn’t burn.
·        Put Pizza base on the flame for 2 min (to avoid the rawness in the bottom of the pizza).
·        Brush olive oil on the edge of the crust before topping with sauce. This step adds a bit of flavour to the crust and helps in achieving a golden colour.
