Thick crust is always in vogue! With its spongy texture and mild taste, the Thick Crust Pizza Base is ideal to make scrumptious pizzas loaded with all-time favourite toppings like capsicum, olives, onions, corn, pineapples and more.
It also works very well with desi toppings like spicy chunks of paneer. The best part is that the Thick Crust Pizza Base is also easy to make, as you have to just roll the plain flour dough nice and thick before baking! No flipping, no patting!
