  • 1/4 cup diced onions

  • 1/4 cup capsicum asstd colours

  • 1/4 cup sliced olives

  • 1 teaspoon oregano

  • 1 teaspoon butter or olive oil to brush on pizzabase


  • Mix yeast and sugar in warm water. Cover and keep aside for 5 to 7 minutes for yeast to bloom.
  • In the meanwhile, sift all purpose flour and whole wheat flour into a mixing bowl.
  • Add oil and salt to it.
  • Pour the activated yeast solution onto the flour and mix with an electric dough hook. Pour the solution a little at a time.
  • Add a little more warm water if needed and keep mixing.
  • Once a dough is formed, turn it onto a working surface and knead it nicely till smooth and elastic. The dough should be a little sticky or tacky to touch but not too wet.
  • Spread a thin layer of oil over the inside of a bowl. Coat the dough with oil and place it in the bowl.
  • Cover the dough with plastic wrap and keep in a warm place for it to rise.. Keep it a least for an hour.
  • After one hour the dough would have doubled in volume.
  • Gently deflate the dough and cut into equal portions.
  • Dust some flour onto the work surface and roll out each ball.
  • Grease a baking tray and sprinkle some semolina or cornmeal on it. This enhances the texture of pizza base.
  • Transfer the rolled out pizza base onto the baking tray.
  • Prick the pizza base with fork so that it does not puff.
  • Brush some butter or olive oil on the base so that it does not become soggy.
  • Spread the sauce evenly leaving the edge.
  • Sprinkle the shredded mozzarella cheese.
  • Time now for the vegetables- capsicum, onion, corn olives.. you may do your own add ons
  • Sprinkle a dash of salt and oregano. Finish off with cheese.
  • Bake in a preheated oven for around 20 minutes till cheese is golden in colour and pizza edges turn golden brown.
  • Bake remaining pizza in the same manner.
