Wheat Pizza | Pizza with Zucchini & Baby corn | Vegeterian home made pizza | Home made wheat pizza crust

When i chose "Italian vegeterian recipe" theme for this month blogging marathon, first dish pop in my head is pizza. So how come i finish off this theme without posting pizza recipe?  After i bought the oven, we rarely buy pizza in pizza outlets.
I love pizza, more than that i love baking them. Everytime, when i saw beautiful baked pizza from my oven ,i was so happy. I started to bake this wheat pizza recently and we love this and it's almost similar to the normal pizza. Since it's wheat, we can have one more slice without any guilt :-)

If you look into the procedure, you may feel that it has lot of work to do.But if you have pizza sauce and dough ready, then within 30 mins you will make this tasty pizza.The key thing to get perfect pizza is proof the yeast perfectly and bake it  at correct temperature and time. If you have thermometer, then proofing yeast is easy , but if you dont have, then by practice only you will know the correct temperature.
During initial stage of baking , i wasted whole packet of yeast without proper proofing and i thought that the yeast is not good  If you add hot water, then the yeast will die and baking with that yeast mixture will result in hard crust. So if you dont see frothy yeast mixture after proofing, dont use it in baking. Start with yeast proofing once again.

Ok. now let see the procedure. 

Wheat Pizza with Zucchini

Preparation Time : 1 hr | Cooking Time : 20 minsServes :
Recipe Category: Pizza | Recipe Cuisine: Indian


For crust
Wheat flour - 1 cup
All purpose flour/maida - 1/2 cup
Active dry yeast - 1 tsp
Olive oil - 2 tbl spn
Salt - 3/4 tsp
Sugar - 1 tsp
Water - required

For Topping
Pizza Sauce -1/2 to 3/4 cup
Capsicum - 1/2 of medium size 
Tomato - 1 (deseeded)
Onion - 1 small size

Zucchini - 1/4 cup chopped
Baby corn - 3 or 4 no (slit length wise)

Mozzarella cheese - 150 gms 

Look at the crust, it's so spongy
Mix the yeast & sugar in lukewarm water and leave it aside for 15 minutes or till it's forthyAfter 15 mins, it  become frothy and it's ready to use. Now take all the ingredients for crust.
In a large bowl, add wheat flour, maida, salt & mix it well.
Then add  oil and yeast mixture and make soft dough by adding enough water. Now oil the bowl and keep the dough in it and keep it aside for 2 hours or till it raises double in volume.
After 2 hours,dough double in its size.Punch the dough to escape the air.
Now start to preheat the oven for 20 mins.Then floor the working surface and roll the dough with rolling pin as much thickness as you want.
Then place the dough in the baking tray and making rim at the edges(if you wish). Apply pizza sauce evenly inside the rim of the dough and arrange the veggies as per your wish.
Finally add the grated cheese and bake it in the  preheated oven for 12-15 mins at 220C
Tasty home made wheat pizza is ready.
  • To proof the yeast, make sure that the water is lukewarm. It should be 105F to 110F. If you dont have thermometer(like me) to measure the temperature. Put few drops of water in your wrist,  if it's warm  & comfortable to you, that's the correct temperature.
  • Amount of pizza sauce is purely optional. Apply as much as you want.
  • Preheat the oven atleast for 20 mins to get beautiful golden crust.
  • Dont cut the pizza immediately when they 're out from oven. Let it sit for 5-8 mins and then cut.
  • It makes one thick crust large pizza.
