This was one that caught my eye. Not only is it a much healthier option, but also a much tastier one.
We tried out one with some homemade chicken tikka and the other one with veg toppings, and it turned out to be SIMPLY DELICIOUS!
15 - 20 Minutes
45 - 50 Minutes
2 - 3 Portions
Pizza Base Ingredients
1 can OR 2.5 cups
3 tbsp, grated
2 - 3 tsp, minced
Soak the dals and rice overnight. Make a very fine paste with the use of as little water as possible**.
Add the rest of the ingredients to it and allow to ferment for atleast 8-10 hours.
*Reducing the amount of moong dal reduces the much obvious taste of it once the base is cooked.
** Less amount of water would help to spread out a thin layer of the batter. It would also help it become a little crispy and not soggy, and prevent the toppings from sinking into it.
* Incase some herbs aren't available, this chart will help you with the substitutes.
In a small bowl, combine tomato paste, water, parmesan cheese, garlic, honey, onion powder, oregano, marjoram, basil, ground black pepper, red pepper flakes and salt; mix together, breaking up any clumps of cheese.
Sauce should sit for 30 minutes to blend flavours; spread over pizza dough and prepare pizza as desired.
Now the pizza...
Preheat the oven at 350 °F OR 180 °C .
Lightly grease the pizza pan, and pour a thin layer of the batter.
Carefully pour / spread the sauce over it.
Add toppings of your choice.
Do not forget, a good handful of grated mozzarella cheese, and bake the pizza for 15 minutes.
P.S. If you can get fresh basil leaves, add a few while baking your pizza as it gives one of the best flavours to the pizza.
Another interesting, yet tasty ingredient is ''sesame seeds''; try it out on your veg or even chicken pizza. It not only gives a nice little crunch, but also a lovely flavour.
