- Sugar - 1 tsp
- Salt – 1tsp

- Olive oil – 1 tbsp
- Olive oil – 2tbsp
- Onion – 1 small, chopped
- Garlic – 4-5 cloves, chopped
- Tomatoes - 4 medium, finely chopped
- Fresh basil leaves – a few
- Whole dry red chillies – 2 tsp crushed
- Salt to taste
- Onion – 1 medium sliced
- Mushroom – 10-12 sliced
- Green capsicum – 1 medium, cut into thick strips
- Olive oil – 1 tsp
- Dry oregano – ¼ tsp
For making the base of the pizza, mix yeast with sugar. Add one teaspoon of warm water. Ensure that the water is not too hot and not too cold too. It should be warm. Set it aside until it becomes frothy. Mix wheat flour and soya flour and add this frothy yeast to it. Add olive oil, salt and wheat bran.
Add a little water and make a soft dough. This is the most important part of getting a well-textured pizza base, as you should make sure the dough is not too hard or sticky. It should be perfect. Cover the dough with a damp cloth and leave it in a warm place for about 40 minutes. The dough will rise to the double of its actual volume due to yeast.
Now divide the dough into four and roll out each portion. The based should be medium and not too thin. You can make an approximate 8-inch disc with this part of the dough. Prick with a fork all over the rolled out dough. Now, preheat the oven to 220 degrees C.
For preparing the sauce, take a pan and heat olive oil in it. Add garlic, chopped onions and stir fry. Add chopped tomatoes.
Now add a cup of water and bring it boil. Stir in salt, crushed basil leaves and dried chillies. You need to make it a thick consistency liquid as that of the sauce and thus simmer it for some time on medium heat until it reaches the desired consistency.
On the rolled pizza base/ discs that you made with the dough, spread the sauce and top it with sliced onions, mushrooms, tomatoes and capsicum strips. Sprinkle same mozzarella cheese covering the pizza evenly and brush with some olive oil.
Place it in the preheated oven at 220 degrees C for about twenty minutes or until the base turns out crisp or the cheese starts melting. Make sure the tray is oven proof and greased too.
Remove from the oven and sprinkle some oregano for the extra taste. Cut it into conical/ triangle shapes of eight pieces and serve hot.
Voila! Your healthy homemade pizza is ready!
