Pizza Cheese:

Ingredients:

  • Unsalted Butter – 50gms
  • Home-Made Paneer – 50gms

Method:

Before making the cheese ensure that butter is chilled till hard and paneer is chilled till firm. Cut chilled butter into cubes. Similarly cut paneer into cubes. Take a mixie jar and add butter and paneer and blend. Mix with a spoon at intervals and blend the mixture till smooth. Take a disposable cup and fill it with the prepared cheese. Cover the cheese cup with cling film and freeze it till hard. After 3 to 4 hours the cheese will be ready. If wished one may use the readily available mozzarella cheese.

Pizza Sauce:

Ingredients:

  • Capsicum – 1 (90gms) {Deseed and use half capsicum}
  • Tomatoes – 4 (360gms)
  • Onions – 2 (80gms0
  • Garlic Cloves – 4 (5gms)
  • Salt – To Taste (3/4tsp)
  • Sugar – 1tsp
  • Red Chili Powder – 1tsp
  • Oregano – 1/4tsp
  • Italian Seasoning – 1/2tsp
  • Crushed Fennel Seeds – 1/4tsp
  • Olive Oil – 1Tbsp

Preparations:

Wash capsicum, deseed and use half for making the sauce. Take half capsicum and cut into small pieces. Wash and chop the tomatoes. Using a mixer grinder make paste of the chopped tomatoes. Peel and cube onions. Make a coarse paste of the onions in a mixer grinder. Peel and grate garlic.

Method:

Heat a pan and add oil to it. When oil is hot add the grated garlic and onion paste. Fry the onion mixture till it is somewhat dry. Then add capsicum pieces and mix. Add the tomato paste, mix and cook covered on medium flame for 5 to 7 minutes. Remove lid and mix with a spoon. Then add salt, sugar. Red chili powder, oregano, Italian seasoning, crushed fennel seeds and mix well. Cook on low flame for 10 minutes or till the sauce reaches desired consistency. See that the consistency of the sauce is neither too thick nor too thin. Transfer the prepared pizza sauce into a bowl.

Pizza Topping:

Ingredients:

  • Chopped Onions – 45gms (1/4Cup)
  • Chopped Capsicum – 35gms (1/4Cup)
  • Sweet Corn – 70gms (1/2Cup)
  • Chopped Mushrooms – 50gms (1/4Cup)
  • Chopped Tomatoes – 20gms (1/8Cup)
  • Salt – To Taste (1/4Heaped tea spoon)
  • Black Pepper Powder - (1/4Heaped tea spoon— freshly ground)
  • Olive Oil – 1tsp

Method:

Take chopped onions into a bowl and add chopped capsicum, sweet corn, chopped tomatoes, chopped mushrooms and mix well. If required/desired parboil the vegetable mix in microwave oven by cooking on high power for 3 to 5 minutes. To the vegetable mix add salt, black pepper powder and olive oil. Mix all well together and the topping is ready to use.

Bread Pizza Making:

Toast bread slices till slightly crisp. To toast the bread slices use a pop-up toaster or use a flat griddle and toast on stove top. Here I have used the pop-up toaster. Insert bread slices into the toaster and toast till slightly crisp. To a toasted bread slice add some pizza sauce and spread evenly. Above the sauce, spread the pizza topping on the bread slice. Holding the grater above the bread slice, grate pizza cheese all over as shown in the movie clip. Ensure that the topping is fully covered with grated cheese. Transfer the prepared bread slice on to a high stand grill tray. Place the grill tray in oven and grill for 7 minutes or till cheese melts. Once the cheese is melted bread pizza will be ready to serve. transfer to a serving plate and cut with a pizza cutter or a sharp knife into 4 pieces for eating convenience.

Points To Notice: 

Using the bread dough make flat bread (Roll like Chapati) and proceed to get normal Pizza. Using bread makes the pizza crisper and tastier. As the melted cheese fries the porous bread slice it becomes extra crisp than the ordinary pizza.

Seasoning added in the sauce and topping may be adjusted according to taste.

After experiencing the taste and texture I found the home-made cheese a lot more tastier than the readily available mozzarella cheese. However it is a personal choice and one may experience it by tasting it.

Using chilled butter and chilled paneer gives a good texture to the pizza cheese.

Garlic may be reduced to two cloves if it appears pungent. Those who like the garlic flavor may use four cloves as given in the recipe.

Though Italian seasoning has oregano in it, I have added extra amount of oregano separately. As mentioned earlier, seasonings may be adjusted according to taste.

Fennel seeds powder gives a distinct flavor to the sauce.

Chopping the vegetables finely cooks them faster and makes rest on the base easily.

Check for the desired consistency while preparing sauce. If the sauce is thin bread slice will become soggy absorbing the moisture from sauce. If sauce is too thick it dries out faster while grilling. Basically see that the sauce sticks to the bread slice and gets fried while grilling to give flavor to the bread slice.

For topping use your choice of vegetables in the form you wish— one can use chopped vegetables as I have shown or one can use sliced vegetables to give a good look to the bread pizza.

Mushrooms change color when exposed to air especially after cleaning. Originally choose the white ones and in the process if they change color, still you can use them. Don't try to clean them under running water. Wipe them with damp kitchen towel /or kitchen napkin and cut them to pieces before using(using mushrooms is optional)

Parboiling the topping vegetables is another option. However finely chopped vegetables gets parboiled while grilling and gives a nice crunch to the pizza.

To toast the bread slices use a pop-up toaster or an OTG (Oven-Toaster-Griller), or toast using hot griddle on stove top.One can adjust the crispness as per choice.

Use high stand grill tray while making bread pizza, so that the bread slice will be nearer to the heat (Grill) and gets done faster. 

Now we can prepare PIZZA at home which children crave.

Serve hot to your family members and get their praises!!!!

Enjoy !!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Priya Garu,

Thanks for your feedback.

The home made pizza cheese was stored in the freezer for 3 months and yet it was fine. Once you remove it from the freezer consume it immediately.Do not attempt to restore it.
