Let’s jump to the homemade pizza recipe without delay.



Suggested: Veg Cheese Pizza Recipe


There are basically 4 steps to making this pizza. Preparing the pizza sauce, making the pizza dough, prepare paneer & veggies and the last step is to decorate & bake the pizza.

So, we have to prepare the Pizza sauce first.


Making Pizza Sauce

For Pizza sauce, we need a few simple ingredients.

  • Tomato
  • Garlic
  • Ginger (optional)
  • Green chili
  • Basil leaves
  • Oregano
  • Chilli flakes
  • Salt
  • Sugar
  • Onion.

Boil the tomatoes a little and peel the skin from it. Make a tomato puree in a blender. Thereafter heat a saucepan with 2 tbsp of oil. Add chopped onion and garlic for fry. When onions turn into light brown, add tomato puree along with basil leaves, oregano, chili flakes, sugar, and salt.
Saute well until the sauce looks perfectly cooked. You can also add water. [If you see that the gravy or sauce becomes very watery, add 1/2 tbsp of cornstarch to make the gravy thicker.]


Making Pizza Dough

For making pizza dough you need very minimal ingredients and the process is also simple.

  • Refined flour or wheat flour
  • Yeast
  • Grain Sugar
  • Butter
  • Salt
  • Milk
  • 1/2 cup of Warm Water
  • Take a small bowl and add 1/2 tbsp of yeast along with 2 tbsp of lukewarm water. Add 1/2 tbsp of sugar and mix well with a spoon. The sugar will helps to yeast get active.
  • On another side, in a mixing bowl take 250 grams of refined flour.
  • Add salt as required. Then add a little butter. [You can use refined oil instead of butter.]
  • Add that active yeast mixture and mix well.
  • When you see all the ingredients are mixed well, add milk, and start kneading. You can also add lukewarm water if you feel the dough is too much dry.
  • After the dough is ready, apply some olive oil to make a light coat on this and let it rest for a minimum of 2 hours. [I suggest to keep it 24 hours to make double.]

Prepare Paneer & Veggies

  • Take the cottage cheese [Paneer] and cut it into cube shapes. Mostly I prefer 1/2 inch square shape, but the 1-inch square is also fine.
  • In this case, it will good if you marinate the paneer before decorating on pizza.
  • I know you will get surprised because this paneer marination is also with very minimal ingredients like salt, pepper, and chili powder. [Garam masala is most vital in Indian food, but I don’t use it in this.]
  • Mix all the spices with paneer cubes and let it rest for half an hour.
  • In this meantime, we can complete the vegetable chopping. I don’t like too many veggies in Paneer pizza, so I only use capsicum and paprika [Capsicum annuum varietals in the Longum group]. You can add onion, bell peppers, mushrooms whatever you want.
  • Slice the capsicums very thinly and dip in vinegar once. [It helps to bake it well.]
  • All the preparation is complete now. go forward to the most vital part.

Decorate & Bake the Pizza

  1. First, turn on the oven to preheat to 200 degrees for 10 minutes. In the meantime, we can decorate the pizza to bake.
  2. Take the dough and divide it into 4 equal parts. Round it up and place it on the pizza plate.
  3. Spread the dough evenly on the plate by hand. Then prick with a frock on all over the dough.
  4. Take one or two tbsp of pizza sauce and spread nicely on the pizza base.
  5. Spread grated cheese (Mozzarella + Cheddar cheese ) all over the sauce. Now there are many types of pizza cheese available in the market so you can use them if you want. Readymade pizza cheeses are similarly made with a combination of mozzarella and cheddar cheese. But now you know the secret.
  6. Arrange the chopped vegetables on it along with marinated paneer cubes. Some people fry this marinated paneer before use but it’s not mandatory.
  7. You can add another layer of grated cheese if you want, but I am absolutely perfect with only one coat of cheese.
  8. Sprinkle some dry oregano and red chili flakes on the pizza. Now your pizza decoration is ready and you can start baking.
  9. Open the oven and place the pizza in it. Set the timer on 15 minutes and the temperature should be 150 degrees.
  10. After the baking is done, put it out from the oven and serve hot with a cup of black coffee or chilled coke whatever you want.
