Veg Pizza

Pizza is an Italian dish. We can make a variety of Pizzas by adding different types of sauces, toppings and seasonings according to individual taste.

Here I am sharing my version of Veg Pizza.  I have used home made white garlic sauce for this pizza since I like its flavor (instead of the red tomato sauce which you may use instead of white sauce according to your taste)

For White Sauce

  • Butter - 2 tbsp
  • All purpose flour - 1 tbsp
  • Minced and crushed garlic - 1 tbsp
  • Milk - 1 cup
  • Parmesan cheese (grated) - 1 cup
  • Black pepper powder - ½ tsp
  • Salt -  ½ tsp

  • Heat a pan and melt the butter in medium heat.
  • Add minced and crushed garlic and sauté for 2 minutes. 
  • Add flour and stir continuously and cook for a minute.
  • Add the milk gradually and cook the mixture for 2 minutes.
  • Add salt and pepper powder and stir well.
  • Add parmesan cheese, stir till the cheese is melted and cook 2-3 minutes to get a thick consistency.
  • Remove from fire.

For Pizza

  • All purpose flour - 2 cups
  • Active dry yeast - 4 tsp
  • Milk - 1/3 cup
  • Luke warm water - 1/3 cup
  • Olive oil - 2 ½ tbsp
  • Salt - 1 tsp
  • Sugar - 2 tsp
  • White sauce (or tomato sauce) - 1 - 2 tbsp
  • Dried oregano  - 2 pinch (optional)
  • Dried basil - 2 pinch (optional)
  • Vegetables (sliced) - (onion, zucchini, bell pepper, mushroom, tomato)
  • Parmesan cheese (grated) - 1/3 cup
  • Cheddar cheese (grated)  - 1/3 cup
  • Mozzarella cheese (grated)- 1/3 cup

  • Add yeast and sugar in luke warm water and mix well until it dissolve.
  • Add this mixture, milk, olive oil and salt into flour and mix well. 
  • Knead the mixture for 4- 5 minutes to make a smooth dough.
  • Cover the dough with a plastic wrap and keep it aside for an hour. (the dough will rise to double its size)
  • Roast the red bell pepper till it becomes soft.
  • Grease the pizza pan.
  • After an hour, dough is rolled out in the greased pan. (if the dough is sticky then use the flour to roll out).
  • Make a rim on the edges using your hand.
  • Spread the sauce over it (inside the rim). 
  • Sprinkle a little of each type of cheese over it.
  • Put the vegetables and roasted bell pepper on it.
  • Sprinkle oregano and basil powder over it (optional).
  • Finally spread the remaining cheese over the vegetables.
  • Heat the oven to 450ºF for 4-5 minutes.
  • Place the pan into the oven and bake the pizza for 15 - 20 minutes or until the vegetables are cooked and cheese is melt and the sides become golden color.
