Today, pizzas are easily available at every restaurant and of course with any number of variations. Here's one variation specially created for diabetics to indulge in. . . Once in a while. The pizza base in this recipe is made using whole wheat flour (and not refined flour (maida) which has a high glycemic index and raises the blood sugar levels rapidly). I have used a creamy mixture of mustard flavoured low fat cream cheese instead of cheese. This miracle spread not only melts well but also tastes good, of course, not like real cheese, but a good guilt free substitute. You can use any other vegetable toppings that you like instead of the one used in this recipe.
- Combine all the ingredients in a bowl. Knead into a soft dough using enough water until it is smooth and elastic.
- Cover the dough with a wet muslin cloth and allow it to prove till it doubles in volume (approx. 15 to 20 minutes).
- Press the dough lightly to remove the air.
- Divide the dough into 2 equal parts.
- Roll out each portion into a circle of 250 mm. (10") diameter and 6 mm. (¼") thickness and place on a lightly greased baking tray.
- Blanch the tomatoes in boiling water.
- Peel, cut into quarters and deseed the tomatoes. Chop finely and keep aside the tomato pulp.
- Heat the oil, add the onion and garlic and sauté for a few minutes.
- Add the tomato pulp and allow it to simmer for 10 to 15 minutes until the sauce reduces a little.
- Add salt and simmer for some more time.
- Finally, add the oregano and mix well. Keep aside.
- Blend the paneer, milk and mustard to a smooth purée in a liquidiser and keep aside.
- Spread half the tomato sauce over the pizza base and top with cheesy topping mixture.
- Arrange half the zucchini, onion and tomato slices on the pizza and top with some basil leaves.
- Bake in a pre-heated oven at 200°c (400°f) for 10 to 15 minutes or till the base is evenly browned. Top with some more basil leaves.
- Make another pizza using the other pizza base and the remaining ingredients.
- Divide each pizza into 4 pieces and serve hot.
