Step 1: The Ingredients
To make this delicious pizza, you'll need the following items in your shopping cart.
- Pizza Base
- Red Onion
- Tomato Sauce
- Shezwan Sauce/ Chutney
Step 2: Prepping the Base
I'll be using a regular microwave oven to bake the pizza. Before you get into the topping, you'll need to prepare the base to get it ready for the toppings.
If you want to see how to make the perfect pizza base, visit my previous Instructable.
First, preheat the microwave for about 30 seconds. Now heat the base in the oven for about 1 minute. You should see that the base will be puffed a little.
Step 3: The Crust
Though the topping is important, the crust is where the magic happens. To make the crust, first coat the pre-baked base with a layer of tomato sauce. Add grated cheese over the sauce all over the pizza. Be generous with the cheese, cos after all, it's a cheese pizza.
Now bake the pizza for about 2 minutes in the microwave.
Step 4: The Toppings
Toppings are one of the things that can never be compromised on a pizza. Different people prefer different toppings. Since this is a capsicum cheese pizza, for the topping, you'll need a capsicum and an onion.
Finely chop the capsicum and red onions. Now add this topping on the base which is baked with the crust on. Also grate a little more cheese on the toppings. You can also add Schezwan chutney over the topping to give the pizza a spicy upgrade.
Step 5: Bake It All !
After adding the topping, put the pizza in the oven for one last time and bake it for about 3-5 mins depending on the amount of toppings. Even after baking if you feel that the toppings are under-cooked, then feel free to microwave it for another minute.
Note: The timing is totally dependent on the size and the thickness of the base. So make sure to keep that in your mind when you're using a microwave oven like me.
Step 6: Slice and Serve
Once the pizza is fully baked, remove it from the microwave and slice it. You can add chili flakes additionally to it and serve. Serve it with Tomato ketchup and a drink.
Pizza and a Carbonated drink are one of the best combinations to savor and enjoy.
See you again with another simple recipe. Ciao !!
