I had joined this group called the  Home Baker's Challenge , a monthly baking event for both bloggers & Non bloggers initated by Priya & team with the intention of learning new recipes and for the possibility of baking atleast once in a month.

when i found the month's theme as pizza, i thought of letting the week go because we dont get cheese at our place, but luckily my brother had to attend  a meeting at another place and he was sweet enough to search for a super market and bought the pizza cheese and 2 pizza breads too. The first time i tried pizza using pizza base and tasted it- it was kind of good and that boosted me to try again from scratch. Homemade pizza base was definitely more tastier than the readymade pizza bread.

The topping was same for all the three (only variation is the chopping and dicing of the veggies)  - onions, tomatoes, capsicum and cheese.

Pizza using pizza breads:

1. Spread tomato sauce on the pizza bread, grate some cheese over it.
2. Add the toppings as required, and a generous amount of tomato sauce and grate cheese all over all the toppings and drizzle some olive oil on the top.
3. Bake, slice and serve.

 pizza with homemade pizza base:

Mix maida,salt,sugar and yeast in a wide bowl.
Heat water and milk to lukewarm and add to the dough and mix in gently.

Cover the dought with a damp kitchen towel and leave it to rise. After resting and rising, punch down the dough and knead well.

 shape the dough into  thin or thick flat discs as required.. Transfer to a greased baking sheet. Prick all over with a fork and bake for 2-3 min.

Spread tomato sauce, grate some cheese over it, the toppings, tomato sauce again and grate pizza all over the veggies.
Bake for 12-15 min or until the crust  becomes golden.

Slice and serve.  :)
