For preparing Indian style cheese veggie pizza, firstly we have started by preparing the cheese sauce which we have used as the base of the recipe. To prepare cheese sauce for cheesy vegetable pizza, in a deep non-stick pan heat butter. Further, add plain flour, cook and whisk continuously until the raw smell goes away of you see the butter flour becoming frothy. Next, add cheese. You can use any cheese that you wish to parmesan, mozzarella etc. Further, add water and season it with pepper and salt. You can also add dry herbs if you wish to enhance the taste of our cheese sauce. Cook it continuously until it thickens and make sure to stir it continuously or it be stick to the bottom of the pan and burn.

Next, for the vegetable topping, take butter in a pan and saute all the veggies on a medium flame. Season it and add mixed herbs. We have used carrots, red bell pepper, zucchini and baby corn but you can use any veggies of your preference.

Further, to assemble the vegetable cheese pizza, place pizza base on a dry surface Here, we have used ready made thin-crust pizza base but you can also prepare it at home. Next, pour 1 portion of the cheesy sauce over it and apply evenly. Next, spread 1 portion of veggies over it and also spread 1/4 cup of pizza sauce over it. Pizza sauces are readily available in the market yet if you wish to you can make it at home too. Next, spread pizza cheese over it. You can adjust the quantity of cheese according to your preference. Further, you can sprinkle oregano and chili flakes if you wish to. Our pizza is ready to be cooked.

Here, we have shown 2 method of cooking pizza. The first method of cooking pizza the method which is common that is baking. So, we have placed the assembled pizza on a greased baking tray and baked it in a pre-heated oven at 200'c for 10-12 mins.

The second method, making cheese veggie pizza on tava is very common in every Indian household which is cooking pizza on tava. To cook cheesy vegetable pizza on tava, heat ghee in a non-stick pan and place the assembled pizza over it, cover and cook until the cheese on the pizza melts. I believe the pizza cooked on tava taste's better than the pizza baked in an oven and is also crispier.

The recipe is unique as the pizza sauce is not applied at the base but poured on top and the cheesy sauce and cheese oozing out makes it even delicious. Assorted veggies make it the best meal.

Worth The effort!!! If you have some time in hand and are willing to eat an homemade pizza then this one is really good. Just need to eat it hot as once its cold the base gets a bit elastic as its made from maida. Very tasty...
