Khichu is a traditional Gujarati snack, made by cooking flour with spices. It has a gooey, dough-like texture, which is very, very delicious when served hot and fresh.

Here is the all-time favourite rice flour khichu made with a totally unexpected and innovative twist! In this unique recipe, the khichu is flavoured with pizza sauce and mixed herbs, garnished with cheese and served with a drizzling of olive oil.

Chopped capsicum, added while cooking the flour, gives the Khichu a very interesting crunch.

The Pizza Khichu brings together old and new flavours, making sure it appeals to young and old alike! Try other khichu recipes like the Whole Rice Khichu and Jowar Khichu .
