Whole Wheat Veg–Cheese Pizza


I was inspired to make Pizza after viewing Nithya’s Pizza recipe the other day in her blog ( 4thsensecooking ). I did not want to use  all purpose flour , so made it using whole wheat flour. I prepared this on Sunday for dinner . My DH ,Cousin, mom and my daughter – everyone liked it.



For the base

Whole wheat flour –  1 cup

Yeast – 1/2 oz

Sugar – 3/4 oz

Salt – 1/4 oz

butter – 3/4 oz ( Best - use Olive oil )

warm water

For Pizza Sauce

Ripe Tomatoes – 3

Onions – 1/2

Garlic – 3 to  4 pods

Olive Oil – 2 tbsp

Italian seasoning – 1/2 tsp

Basil – 1/2 tsp

Oregano – 1/2 tsp

Parsley – 1/2 tsp

Salt – 1/2 tsp

Red chilly flakes – 3/4 tsp

Salt – as per taste ( I just added 1/4 tsp as we will have salt in cheese )


Vegetables ( I used Onions . Green bell pepper , Orange and red bell pepper )

Mozzarella Cheese – shredded ( 1 1/2 cup )



Mix Yeast , Sugar with warm water until it is dissolved. Slowly add this to the flour along with little salt and butter . Make a dough by adding enough water. Knead the dough atleast for about 15- 20 mins and leave the dough covered for about 45 mins - 1 hr until it has doubled the size. Meanwhile start preparing the Pizza sauce ( you can get it readymade , but I made it at home )

Sauce : Cut the onions and Garlic pods into very small pieces. Cut the tomatoes and grind it in the mixer. Heat up the pan and add Olive oil. Add Onions and fry it till it becomes translucent ( need not fry it well ) . Then add garlic and fry for sometime. Now add the Tomato puree and mix it. Once it starts to boil, lower the flame. Add Basil , Parsley , Italian seasoning, Salt , oregano , Chilli flakes and mix well until it becomes thicker.

Base : Preheat the oven to 350 ° F. Once the dough doubles , knead it and and roll it out on the floored work surface and transfer to Pizza dish or baking pan ( I just used the foil ) . Use a fork and make some perforation. Add the pizza sauce, then the vegetables toppings and add the cheese. Bake it for 15- 20 mins

Your Pizza is now ready to be served…
