Pizza is food for the soul. But with the coronavirus outbreak and most of the restaurants being shut, the safest bet is to cook one at home. And, we are going to tell you how.
Craving for a pizza? So were we, and guess what happened? Yup, we made pizza, many, in fact and finally we feel fine. There are so many types of pizzas – thin crust, thick crust, deep dish, you can go on and on.
It is not just about the base, the toppings are also uncountable too. You can go as crazy as you want and make a farm house or a meat load or just stick with the simple yet soul fulfilling margherita aka cheese pizza. And let us tell you, there is nothing basic about the one we are making.
Ok, so we thought that we would share the basics of making one with you.
Let’s make pizza
|Pizza base||As many as you like|
|Pizza sauce (Veeba)||As per requirement|
|Capsicum (green and yellow – finely chopped)||1 each|
|Spring onion||4 sprigs|
|Salt||According to taste|
|Pepper||According to taste|
|Mozzarella cheese||one cup|
|Chilli flakes||one pinch|
Making a pizza is incredible easy, given you have the right ingredients. People do go to the lengths of making the base themselves, but we were waiting to devour one for so long that we did not have the patience to make the dough ourselves.
For the first step, cut the vegetables that you have in small sizes. Add a little bit of salt and pepper to them, and your toppings are ready. If you wish to add mushrooms, you will have to saute them in butter for 5 minutes before putting them on the pizza.
Coming to the base, first apply a nice layer of the pizza sauce on the base. Once that is done, put the toppings. Don’t be cheap with the toppings, your pizza should be overflowing with the them.
Next comes the holy grail, the cheese. Too much cheese, said no one ever. Go crazy and cover it with mozzarella cheese.
Finally, put your this dish in the oven for 10 minutes at 180 degrees. After 10 minutes, you have you ghar ka pizza ready. Season it with oregano and chilli flakes, and you are good to go.
We also experimented with the toppings and added chicken salami to it.
