Surprise, surprise! Now, you can make mouth-watering pizzas at home, even if you do not have a convection or microwave oven. All you need is a broad non-stick pan and a bit of tact. This delicious Pizza-in-a-Pan is colourful and attractive, with a range of lip-smacking toppings and seasonings ranging from colourful capsicums, crunchy baby corn and juicy zucchini, to a tangy pizza sauce, and of course loads of cheese. The secret to making the perfect pizza in a pan, is to cook on a very slow flame as these pizzas tend to cook faster than in an oven and will get crisp soon. If you cook it on a high flame, it will get burnt even before all the toppings are cooked. So, if you patiently cook it on a slow flame, the outcome will be absolutely delightful!

Tarla Dalal    Hi, You can try crushing the chillies in a mortar pestle. make sure you roast the chillies lightly so that it is easy to crush..

Pizza without an oven or a microwave is just perfect as it gets cooked faster, it is crispier and taste just perfect. Though I have an oven at home I always end up making it in a pan....
