Pizza

I used to make pizza during my college days in mysore. No pizza places so this was our only indulgence in Mysore. Usually made it using ready made pizza base and sometimes made pizza dough at home. Pizza dough making, i feel, is a very tedious process that too with little kids around and also with other daily chores. Using a ready made Pizza base does not give the satisfaction of making a pizza. This time around i made the pizza base myself and then added veggies like onions, capsicum/green peppers, cheese. Toppings can be changed to suit ones likes. It came out very soft and light & also very tasty based on my son’s comments :).
