Vegetable Pizza Recipe is an all time favorite Snack dish of Kids and adults. There was a time when I used to make Pizzas at home with ready made Pizza breads, but after making breads at home, I got to know that homemade are far better than the outside ones, hence sometimes I make the Pizza Base at home.
This homemade Vegetable Pizza Recipe is a tried and tested vegetarian pizza recipe and if everything is followed correctly, you will be able to make great pizzas with a choice of your toppings for your family and friends. I have used simple vegetables, such as onion, bell pepper and tomato for making this pizza, you can use your own assorted veggies for the topping, just need to cut them in thin slices just like shown in image.
You can use homemade Pizza Sauce or Ready available pizza sauce of market. Today I have made this Veggie Pizza with my own, homemade pizza dough, but if you want you can go with ready made pizza base as well. My Vegetable Pizza recipe is divided in three parts, Making the pizza base, Assembling and arranging the toppings and Baking in Oven, such an easy way of making pizza at home.
Let’s get into the details of this delicious, homemade Vegetable pizza recipe.
Dissolve 2 teaspoon of active dry yeast and 1/4 teaspoon sugar in 1 cup of warm water. Stir the whole mixture and keep it aside for about 10-15 minutes.Now you will see, that the yeast is getting doubled up and a good frothy layer has come up.
Take a big bowl and mix 2 cups all-purpose flour and 1/2 teaspoon salt in it. Add yeast mixture and about 1 tablespoon of oil. Mix the whole ingredients very well with the spatula.
Keep on mixing, till it becomes sticky. The dough will leave the sides of the bowl but still will be a bit sticky, so its time now to knead the dough with the hand. Knead the dough, until it is smooth, dust with flour to prevent sticking. The dough will be soft and elastic, apply some oil to the dough all around.
Now keep the dough in a big bowl and cover loosely with a clean kitchen napkin and then put the lid over it. Keep it aside at least for 2 hours. After 2 hours the dough has beautifully risen and doubled up as you can see in picture.
Divide the dough into 4 equal sized balls or portions and again keep it aside for 20-30 minutes. After 30 minutes, you will see the balls are little firm and raisin bit. Now take one ball on a clean kitchen surface, flatten it into the disk and start rolling.
Dust with the flour and with a rolling pin, roll each ball into a large round or oval shape of about 1/4 inch thickness. Roll the dough from the center towards the outer edges. I made four pizza bases out of it, but if you want you can use the whole dough to make an extra large pizza or even make two large pizzas. Now spread 1 tablespoon of pizza sauce all over on the base and spread some mozzarella cheese over it.
Arrange few slices of onion, tomato, green-yellow and red bell pepper. Place few sweet corns and few fine chopped green chilies. Sprinkle generous amount of mozzarella or pizza cheese. Preheat the oven at 350 degrees F for 5 minutes. Carefully place the pizza in the oven and bake it for about 15 minutes, till the base becomes golden brown, veggies are cooked and cheese on top melts.
Your pizza is ready now, take it out from the oven, cut into desired pieces.
Sprinkle some red chili flakes and mixer herbs (dried oregano) and serve immediately.
If you want to make pizza on the next day, then refrigerate the dough properly in a tight lid and on the next day, before making it, bring it on room temperature.
The pizza dough can also be made in a food processor or electric mixer.
If the dough becomes sticky, then add some flour and vice versa. If the dough is not soft and a bit dry, then add some warm water.
You can even make a thin crust pizza with this dough and it will be excellent.
If you want, you can pre-cook or saute the vegetables in some oil.
The leftover pizza sauce can be refrigerated.
I prefer to keep my pizza on paper plate for serving, in this way pizza does not get wet and sticky and remains fresh and tasty.
