Now Commercially Pizza doughs contain “enriched flour”or “bread flour” some malt syrup instead of regular old plain sugar , vital wheat gluten to enhance the level of gluten and a lot of other stuff like dough conditioners. But a normal home cook mostly cannot find all this stuff so how can you make a good pizza dough at home??? So this recipe very use full as not everybody can get their hands on all the commercial but everybody can do is use a good technique.. and here's my husband's favourite pizzaaaa..and yes its made from scratch!!!

any veggies of your choice could be used, i used here- diced tomato, onion, green capsicum, jalapenos, sliced olives, corn kernels

I have added a twist by marinating these topping veggies in a mix of olive oil, garlic, oregano, black pepper, salt. mix well keep aside and use at the time of serving, taste and flavour enhances.

Step 5: Pizza Sauce Recipe

Since, processed foods are not at all healthy for any of us so we have started cutting out the large majority of processed foods from our family’s diet, so i prepared a yummy pizza sauce that can go basically with any kind of pizza/pasta and pizza tastes same as that served in restaurants. It involves some effort and time but believe me, after using this sauce, you gonna feel its worth doing.

So here goes the ingredient list,

olive oil- 1.5 tbsp

onion- 1, finely chopped

garlic paste- 1/2 tsp

green chilly or jalapeno- according to how much heat you can handle, I used 1

capsicum-1/2, finely chopped

tomatoes- 4, medium sized, finely chopped

oregano- 1/2 tsp

black pepper pwd-1/4 tsp

salt- 3/4 to 1 tsp

tomato ketchup- 2tbsp

red chilli sauce and vinegar 1 tsp each

sugar- 1/2 tsp (optional)

to a pan, add olive oil, after that add onion, garlic paste and green chilly.. after onions sweat a bit, add capsicum, saute for 1 minute, add tomatoes, oregano, black pepper, salt. cook covered for 10-15 minutes, remove the lid, mix well and finally add tomato ketchup, red chilli sauce, vinegar and sugar.

Step 6: Final Preparation of Pizza..!

Finally, dust some cornmeal and roll the dough with hands, try not to roll out the dough, you hand stretch it - rolling kills the air bubbles... spread pizza sauce, then mozarella cheese and lots of veggies of your choice.

Bake in a pre-heated microwave oven at 250 deg centigrade and enjoy the super- delicious treat with any beverage of your choice!

You gotta build a wood it greatly decreases cooking time and increases flavour.

kanshank (author)wynkin2015-06-29

Correct!

seamster (author)2015-06-22

This looks like an excellent pizza!

Just to be clear though, you cook this in a regular oven right? (not a microwave oven?)

kanshank (author)seamster2015-06-22

Thanks! Not a regular oven, i used convection mode mode on my microwave.!

kanshank (author)kanshank2015-06-27

Thanks! Not a regular oven, i used convection mode mode on my microwave.! But if u are using regular oven, its gonna give great result, and really crispy pizza but adjust timings accordingly!

God...how I love Pizza, trust me, going through the 'ible, left me drooling. I am gonna trouble my wife to make this recipe. One quick question, assuming we substitute all purpose flour with whole wheat flour....how could the result be ? have you give it a try ?

Thank you kanshank for sharing it. Great job.

kanshank (author)madhavdivya2015-06-27

Thank u so much for liking the recipe.. I havn't tried whole wheat flour yet.. you can use whole wheat flour but it will result in a very dense texture use 2/3 whole wheat and 1/3 maida/all purpose flour you will get much better results!
