Vegetable Pizza

Pizza!!!!! the name represents comfort food, colorful, cheeesy and delicious..People of all age groups enjoy this Italian delicacy.. Here is a simple home made version of a Pizza. The toppings really can go with imagination..

For the pizza dough
2 cups maida
1 cup warm water
1tsp salt
a pinch of sugar
1 tsp ghee
mix everything into a soft dough and allow it to rise for 2 hours in a warm place..

Tip: if you want to use a semi homemade version, pizza dough is available fresh in almost all the grocery stores. It is very similar to our Poori/ chapati dough.

Tomato pizza sauce:
blanch fresh tomatoes (4) and remove the skin. Make a puree of the tomatoes. To this add salt, sugar and dried herbs of your choice (I have used oregano and fresh crushed black pepper)

The list is endless.. I have used fresh tomatoes sliced, onion rings, green pepper stripes and a few fresh basil leaves
You can go with pineapple, eggplant, olives, jalapeno, banana peppers, apples, zucchini, brocolli etc...

To make:
roll out the pizza dough on to a round oven pan and bake it in the oven for 6minutes at 375 F.
To this spread the homemade tomato sauce allround.Sprinkle a combination of your favourite cheese . I have used a mixture of mozzerella and cheddar cheese.. Now arrange all the veggies per ur imagination. Bake this for 20minutes at 400 till the cheese is bubbly and the edges of the pizza dough get golden brown. Enjoy the pizza...

Hint: To get the best results, always use very fresh ingrediants.
