vegetable pizza recipe | tava pizza | Indian style veg pizza | oven veg pizza | with amazing 80 pictures A classic recipe that has stood the test of time... we present to you the ever-popular Vegetable Pizza. While this is a basic pizza that is easy and quick to prepare, it has a universal appeal and is the safest bet to place on a party menu. We have used homemade pizza base, so you can prepare the vegetable pizza in a jiffy. A colorful assortment of veggies gives this pizza an interesting crunch, while pizza sauce and a dash of spices and herbs give it an awesome flavor. Although pizza base is readily available in stores, the fresh taste and texture of a homemade one are unbeatable. And, well, it is not such an adventurous activity either. It is quite easy to make at home, as this Basic Pizza Base recipe will show you. For, tava pizza we have made the pizza base by activating the yeast first, take yeast in a small bowl, add sugar and add water, make sure the water is lukewarm and not hot as it may kill the yeast. The rising time will vary on the climatic condition and quality of the yeast. Once the yeast is activated, you will see a frothy layer formed on the top. Further, take plain flour in a bowl, add yeast water mixture, add olive oil and some salt to it. Combine all the ingredients and knead into a dough soft and smooth dough. Cover the dough with a wet muslin cloth and keep aside for 1 hour in a warm place or till the dough is double in size. If you don’t plan to use the dough for a day, place it in the fridge straight away; take it out 3-4 hrs before using and then continue the rest of the procedure. Once the dough has risen, remove excessive air and grease the dough and divide it. Thereafter, roll it into desired size and prick it using a fork so that the base does not puff up. Bake in a preheated oven for 5 minutes and your pizza base is ready to use. Pizza Sauce is at the heart of a pizza’s success! Tangy and flavourful, it is responsible for giving out that appetizing aroma when the pizza gets baked. Some like their pizza sauce with fresh tomatoes more herby, while others like it more spicy, and yet others prefer a tangy overtone. This quick pizza sauce recipe is a balanced one, which has the right amount of everything. Just make sure you choose ripe tomatoes to make this delectable pizza sauce. Indian style vegetable pizza is extremely easy to assemble things and cook a pizza once you have done all the preparation for vegetable pizza. Take the pizza base and spread some pizza sauce. Futher, spread cheese evenly and also, spread the vegetable juliennes and some more cheese, sprinkle some herbs on top and tava pizza ready to be cooked!! Heat butter or ghee in a broad non stick pan, and place the pizza on a tava, we have here used tava as it is economical, time saving and also save electricity. Make sure you cook it on a low flame and do not leave it unattended as it might burn. You can also bake it in an oven if you wish too. We have also shown how to make Indian style veg pizza in an oven. Serve the vegetable pizza immediately.

This protein-rich rice preparation also presents a fiesta of colours, thanks to the use of a large variety of sprouts and veggies. Traditional indian spices add flavour to the rice, while the innovative use of pav bhaji masala imparts a tempting aroma to the vegetable preparation. The method adopted, of preparing the rice and veggies separately and then mixing them ensures that this mixed sprouts rice is conveniently moist and not too dry. It is as good as having a pulao and a subzi, but in a convenient one-dish format that you will love. Serve with a raita of your choice, and voila, you have a delicious and sumptuous meal.
