Vegetable Pizza with home made Tomato sauce

Pizzas are my family's favourite.We love to order the veggie lover from "Pizza hut" often.My son loves it a lot.I was thinking to recreate it at home.Today got a very good oppurtunity.So workedout with the ingredients in hand.The spices and the topping depends on individual's taste.We can alter it accordingly.
My hubby was satisfied and gave a suggestion,to grease the tava with butter before cooking the pizza.
Planning to implement his thought in near future.

I have used tava to bake the pizza.But if u have a pizza stone then no need for the tava.Bcoz pizza stone will cook the pizza faster and cooks thoroughly.The tava helps to cook the pizza fast after heating it on the stove top.

Recipe Source : Prema's Thaligai.


Ingredients:


For the Pizza Sauce:
1.Ripe Tomatoes                         -                4
2.Onion                                       -                 1/4
3.Red pepper                              -                  1/4
4.Garlic                                      -                  3
5.Green chillies                          -                  2
6. Basil leaves                             -                   1 tsp
7.Oregano  pwdr                         -                    1 tsp
8.Red chilli flakes                       -                     as required
9.Pepper pwdr                             -                   few pinches

Method:
* Dump the tomatoes in hot water and peel the skin off.
* Take a pan,add little oil and saute the chopped onion,red pepper,slit green chillies and garlic.
* After cooling it,grind it in the blender with the tomatoes.
* In the same pan,add oil and pour the grinded tomatoe mixture .
* Bring it to boil and sprinkle some red chilli flakes,pepper pwdr,basil leaves and oregano pwdr.
* Cover and keep it aside.

For the Dough:

Ingredients:
1.All purpose flour                        -                 1 1/2 cup
2.Yeast                                           -                 3/4 tsp
3.Luke warm water                           -                1/2 cup  or required
4.Salt                                              -                 1/2 tsp
5.Oil                                               -                  2 tbsp

For Topping:
1.Chopped mushroom                    -                 1/2 cup
2.Chopped peppers                       -                  1/4 in each color.
3.Sliced onion                               -                  a hand full
4.Mozeralla Cheese                       -                  1/2 cup or required.
5.Garam masala                             -                  a pinch
6.Garlic pwdr                                -                   a pinch

Method:
* Dissolve the yeast in luke warm water for 10 mins.
* Mix it with the flour and prepare a soft dough,after sprinkling some oil.
* Let it rest for 2 hrs or untill it doubles in size.
* After 2 hrs ,take the dough out and knead it again .Divide it into 2 equal sized balls.
* Dust the floor with some flour and roll it into a medium thicknessed round dough.


* Take  a tava and place the rolled pizza.keep it on the stove top for 2 mins or untill it becomes slightly hot.This helps the pizza base to get heated and cook faster in the oven.
* Now take a laddle full of pizza sauce and spread it on the pizza.
* Now arrange the veges on the pizza in any order u prefer.
* Now sprinkle the cheese on top of it.We can be liberall in doing this.
* The more cheese u sprinkle,the more it will taste.but I have used bit lesser ,keeping my family's health in mind.

Baking:
* Pre heat the oven for 450 degrees and place the tawa with the pizza.
* Cook the pizza for 10 to 15 mins or untill the crust becomes golden brown.
* Take out ,sprinkle some garlic pwdr,garam masala and serve hot.


Note:
* The toppings are purely to our taste.We can also add some cooked chicken on top of it,if we want.
* The herbs added in the sauce are purely to our taste.The original recipe called in for oregano,since I didnt have it ,so used basil.
* We can also make the sauce an indian one ,by adding all the masala.
* My H suggested to grease the tava with butter and then place the pizza before cooking,which I am going to try it out next time
* Adding garam masala gives a indian touch.
* The mozerella cheese shud be a good brand,if not it wont taste like the pizza shops.

The pizza is looking so colourful.. it's really a good tip to heat the pizza before putting in the oven..and i think it would taste even better if your H's idea of buttering the tava is followed :)
