Veg Pizza recipe

Homemade veg pizza

This is a simple version of Vegetable pizza,you can try at home.
I have made it as thin crest with a bit of Arabian Flavor .An interesting Arabian version of Pizza is  available in the Pizza-Hut  here in Middle east,an amazing twist to the traditional Italian Pizza.
Most of  my recipes are my experiments with a basic recipe which we try from restaurants.
Anyways,here are the
Ingredients
For the Pizza dough
1.All purpose flour-2 cups
2.Dry yeast -5g
3.sugar -2tsp
salt-to taste
Add 2 tbsp warm water to the yeast and 2 tsp sugar.Keep aside for 5 minutes.
Make a smooth dough with flour,yeast and salt by adding water carefully.
Keep aside for 30 minutes.
Now after 30 minutes beat the dough with the back of your hand .Make big balls out of this and keep aside for 10 more minutes.Now these balls will become double in size.
Ingredients for the Topping.
Olive oil-
Pizza sauce-
Veggies-Onion,Bell peppers,corn etc.
Mozzarella Cheese-Shredded
Salt-
Dry Oregano
Sumac(Optional)
Paprika -2tsp

Now we can start preparing the Topping.
Flatten one of the dough balls into thin/thick crest.Dust the surface with some flour before you do this.

Now heat a pan and cook the bottom side of the Pizza base for 2 minutes.Now its very easy to cook in the oven and also to handle the Pizza .This is a must step since we are not using Pizza stone(baking stone) to bake Pizzas.
Now,apply some Pizza sauce first.Then the Mozzarella.

Next the chopped veggies.Sprinkle Paprika,salt and Sumac(optional:Sumac is an Arabian spice ) on to these veggies.
Finally Mozzarella again.
Drizzle Olive oil on top.
Now pizza is ready to go to the oven.
Bake for 10 minutes (at max Oven temperature) until the color of the cheese is light brown.
