1/2 cup jowar (white millet) flour
2 tsp oil

For The Pizza Sauce
3/4 cup blanched and finely chopped tomatoes , refer handy tip
1 tsp olive oil
1 tsp finely chopped garlic (lehsun)
1/4 cup finely chopped onions
2 tbsp finely chopped spring onion greens
1 tsp sugar
1 tbsp tomato ketchup
1 tsp dried oregano
1 tsp dry red chilli flakes (paprika)
salt to taste

Other Ingredients
1/2 cup grated processed cheese

Method
For the dough

  1. Combine all the ingredients in a bowl, knead into a firm dough using enough water and keep aside for 10 minutes.

For the pizza sauce

  1. Heat the olive oil in a broad non-stick pan, add the garlic and sauté on a medium flame for 30 seconds.
  2. Add the onions and sauté on a medium flame for another 1 to 2 minutes or till they turn translucent.
  3. Add the spring onion greens, mix well and sauté on a medium flame for 10 more seconds.
  4. Add the blanched tomatoes, mix well and cook on a medium flame for 2 to 3 minutes, while stirring occasionally
  5. Add the sugar and tomato ketchup, mix well and cook on a medium flame for another 1 to 2 minutes, while stirring occasionally.
  6. Add the oregano, chilli flakes and salt, mix well and cook on a medium flame for 1 more minute, while stirring occasionally.
  7. Remove from the flame and keep aside.

How to proceed

  1. Divide the dough into 6 equal portions and roll out each portion between the palms of your hands into a 75 mm. (3") diameter circle.
  2. Heat a non-stick tava (griddle) and cook each bhakhri on a slow flame till pink spots appear on both the sides.
  3. Continue cooking the bhakhri on a slow flame, while pressing with a folded muslin cloth till it turns crisp and brown in colour on both the sides.
  4. While on the tava (griddle), spread 2 tbsp of the pizza sauce and top with 1 tbsp of cheese evenly over it. Cover it with a lid and cook for 2 minutes.
  5. Repeat with the remaining ingredients to make 5 more bhakhri pizzas.
  6. Cool slightly and serve immediately.

Handy tip

  1. 3 large tomatoes after blanching will yield approx. ¾ cup blanched, peeled, deseeded and finely chopped tomatoes.

This is a fab and great alternate base to the plain flour pizza. The bhakri base turns crisp and the pizza sauce taste great over it.
