Crispy pizza recipe, crunchy vegetables, oozing cheese, a sprinkle of oregano and basil- everything when combined, make Vegetable Pizza and who wouldn’t love it. This recipe for veggie pizza uses the best homemade pizza sauce. And that’s what makes all the difference. Making pizza at home is super simple and quick also with a readymade pizza recipe. However, if you want to make a pizza base at home, then the recipe gets time-consuming. And therefore, keeping it short, here we will see how to make pizza at home using a readymade pizza recipe.
Vegetables Pizza has a number of elements:
A. Pizza Base
B. Pizza Sauce
And this recipe for pizza combines all these elements so perfectly and in such a balanced manner that results in nothing but the best ever homemade pizza. Believe me, if you’d once try making pizza at home using this recipe for pizza, you will stop ordering it or eating it at the restaurants.
The pizza base is prepared with all-purpose flour, yeast, milk/water. salt and sugar. However, proofing of dough takes some time and the recipe for pizza becomes a time-taking affair, therefore, I like to use a readymade pizza recipe. But I shall soon do a separate blog post on how to make a pizza recipe at home.
This is the game changer and the soul of this recipe for pizza. I had been making pizza at home but always with the readymade sauce. The pizza would be good but I never found it great. This time I made pizza sauce at home and it added so much to my recipe for vegetable pizza. It has the perfect balance of flavor. When used for the recipe for pizza it doesn’t overpower other flavors.
I have often been asked this question. Well, if your oven doesn’t bake a crisp pizza, try the following tips and tricks:
1. Generally, pizza is baked at 240°C -250° I like to bake it at 180°C. Always pre-heat the oven at 180°C (or 160°C if using convection or fan oven).
2. If the lower temperature doesn’t work, you can try to bake the readymade pizza recipe separately at 180°Ctill a little crisp and thereafter proceed with the recipe.
3. You can also put the ready-made pizza recipe on a pre-heated skillet or pan and cook on low flame till the base gets a little crisp after baking your pizza.
It is absolutely okay if you don’t have an oven but want to make pizza at home. It is very much possible to make pizza without an oven. Pizza can be prepared in a pan or on a skillet or even in a gas tandoor. In fact, I love to make pizza in a gas tandoor, I like that even more than the one made in an oven.
a. In order to make pizza on a tava or in a pan,
b. pre-heat the pan or tava.
c. Once it is hot, place the assembled pizza on it.
d. Reduce the flame to low. Cover with a lid.
e. Let the pizza cook with the lid on till the vegetables are soft yet crunchy and the cheese starts to melt.
f. The pizza base may not be crisp yet. Remove the lid and continue to cook on a low flame the base is crispy.
a. Heat the gas tandoor.
b. Assemble and place the pizza in the preheated gas tandoor.
c. Reduce the flame and let it cook till the vegetables become soft and the cheese melts and the pizza recipe is crisp.
d. Keep a check while the pizza is cooking to avoid it from burning.
Well this list can go on and on
