Making Pizza Dough

  • In a mixing bowl, take 1 teaspoon instant yeast and ½ teaspoon sugar.
  • Add 3 tbsp of lukewarm water and mix very well to get the yeast active.
  • In another large mixing bowl, take 250 grams of refined flour or whole wheat flour. Then add 2 tbsp of olive oil or melted butter along with salt and little sugar.
  • Mix well, then add milk and start kneading. Knead until the dough become soft and smooth. You can add milk occasionally.
  • Now spread some olive oil all over the dough.
  • Place a wheat cotton cloth covering the dough or pan. Keep the dough a minimum of 45 minutes till the dough increases in volume and doubles up. [I prefer to resting the dough overnight.
  • Your Pizza dough is ready.

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.
  • 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

  • Preheat the oven for 10 minutes at 200 degrees.
  • Take the dough and divide it into 4 equal parts. Round it up and place it on the pizza plate after aplying a butter coating.
  • Spread the dough evenly on the plate by hand. Then prick with a frock on all over the dough.
  • Take one or two tbsp of pizza sauce and spread nicely on the pizza base.
  • Spread grated cheese all over the sauce.
  • Arrange the chopped vegetables on it along with marinated paneer cubes.
  • Sprinkle some dry oregano and red chili flakes on the pizza.
  • Open the oven and place the pizza in it. Set the timer on 15 minutes and the temperature should be 150 degrees.
  • After baking is done, cut the pizza with a pizza cutter and serve immedieately.
