For Making Pizza:
Prepared pizza sauce
Different colored bell peppers
Baby corn etc
Grated mozzarella or pizza cheese
Mixed herbs and chilli flakes
1.Take the rice dough and punch it back. Knead well once again and divided into two equal portions.Preheat oven at 180C.
2.Take one portion of dough on a clean surface and spread it into a circle, you can make it thin or thick crusted as per your wish but do not it very thin like chapathi.Transfer the rolled circle to a pizza plate or stone and prick the base here and there with a fork.
3.Now spread the prepared sauce on it evenly.Now add some grated cheese and arrange the toppings.Add some more grated cheese as much as required.
4.Bake the arranged pizza for 12-17 minutes or until the crust turns light golden.
5.Allow to cool for 5 minutes and cut into wedges.
6.Serve with more herbs and chilli flakes.
1.You can add paneer cubes along with vegetables as topping.
2.Spreading cheese after applying sauce is optional step,it gives a very nice texture to pizza
3.I always prefer to use mozzerella cheese for pizza as it melts and spreads very well.
4.You can mix little salt to the cut vegetables
5.Grease and dust the pizza plate well before transferring the dough.
