My husband and me are die hard fans of pizza specially those which are loaded with cheese..Everyone of us love to eat pizza at any time of the day and we don't need occasion for it..Right guys..This recipe is inspired from one of Cal( Chef at large) member with few changes in making pizza dough and pizza sauce.
Yes guys u heard it right we can make pizza dough n sauce and pizza hut style pizza in our own kitchen..excited..so lets gather all the ingredients required for it..
For pizza dough :
2 cups All purpose flour/maida + for dusting
1 tsp Active dry yeast
200 ml lukewarm milk
1 tbsp Sugar
2 tbsp Oil
2 tsp Salt
1-2 tbsp Corn meal/makkai ka atta
For pizza Sauce :
3 medium sized Tomatoes
1 medium sized Onion chopped
7-8 Garlic cloves chopped
2 tsp Oil
Salt to taste
1-2 tbsp Tomato ketchup
1 tsp Sugar
1 tbsp Oregano flakes
1 tbsp Chilli flakes
For topping and making cheesy bites :
1 block of Mozzarella cheese ( 200 grams)
1/4 cup Processed cheese
1-2 tsp Oregano flakes
1-2 tsp Chilli flakes
1 medium sized Tomato
1 small sized Onion
9-10 Black Olives
Method : For kneading dough first take yeast and sugar in bowl , add 20 ml luke warm milk in it and mix well , let it rest for 10 mins for yeast to activate. Once the yeast mixture becomes frothy it is ready to use ..take a mixing bowl add apf/maida , salt and oil in it and add yeast mixture and mix well..slowly add all milk and knead dough till it becomes smooth and shiny in texture..u may need to add more flour if dough becomes too sticky on ur hands.Once done keep it in warm place by applying oil on it for minimum of 2 hrs or more till dough becomes double in size.
Now in the meantime , we will prepare pizza sauce first put criss cross on all tomatoes on bottom side and put them in boiling water for say 3-4 mins this leads to blanching of tomatoes ,take them out once done , let them cool down than peel them and grind them in mixer grinder..Take oil in pan , heat it and add chopped garlic cloves , roast them , add chopped onions , once onion becomes transparent in color add grinded tomatoes puree and cook till sauce starts thickening..at this stage add tomato ketchup ,oregano and chilli flakes , mix well let it cook for 2-3 mins more and its done ,switch off flame and add salt and sugar and give final mix.Keep it aside for cooling down.
Keep both cheese out at room temp for 2-3 hrs for ease of cutting.Cut 3/4 block of mozzarella cheese blocks into rectangular pieces and keep rest for grating on middle of pizza.Cut all veggies of your choice in desired shapes.
Take out pizza dough and punch it with hands to remove all the air inside it and roll it into circular shape by applying corn meal/makkai ka atta to get crispy pizza base with help of rolling pin.Put pizza base on greased baking tray, and stretch it from all sides outside , now align mozzarella cheese cut into rectangle shapes on the outside circumference of pizza base and roll the dough back by covering cheese completely.Cut the sides of pizza covered with cheese by knife by 2 inches gap in between.Now pull each bite and twist it ..will copy link for it in comments section.
Apply pizza sauce in centre portion and grate some processed cheese over it , align all veggies and season them with oregano and chilli flakes and grate again both mozzarella cheese and processed cheese as much as u want.
Pre heat microwave at convention mode only for 10 mins at 200 degrees and now put baking tray with pizza on higher wire rack and bake at convention mode for about 25-30 mins at 200 degree..mine took 35 mins to get golden brown crust.
Once done take it out cool it for 2-3 mins and slice it with pizza cutter and serve cheesy bite pizza and enjoy...
