Hi friends !! The much awaited reveal date for pizza has already come and sorry that am the last one to complete my challenge. Thanks to +Priya Suresh  aks for this lovely group she created in the name of "Home baker challenge" where we get to bake with each  month with different and delicious baking challenges being challenged  by the group members. So glad am a part of it and happy to finish my first challenge. This month first challenge was challenged by +Divya Prakash  of  "Divya's Culinary Journey" . She had shared an yummy recipe of pizza this month :)

I am great lover of pizza and my lil girl also love pizza . So i was so excited to finish this challenge soon . Pizza's was originated from Italy and a most like fast food by all. Do u know they celebrate October month as pizza month :). So i am here with my version pizza made for Home baker's challange.

For Pizza Sauce


2 tbsp Olive Oil
2 tbsp grated Garlic
2 cups Tomato Puree
1 tsp Oregano
1/4 tsp Black Pepper
1/4 tsp Chilli Flakes
2 tbsp Brown Sugar (optional)
4 tbsp Tomato Ketchup
1/2 tsp Basil Leaves


  • Cook the Tomatoes in boiling water , when they are well done remove the skin and seeds . Grind them in a blender and make a paste
  • In a large saucepan heat oil , Add grated ginger ,red chilli flakes, tomato paste,basil leaves, tomato ketchup and cook them . Add remaining ingredients; mix well. Bring to a boil, stirring constantly. Reduce heat; cover and simmer  stirring occasionally. Cool.
  • Pour into freezer containers, leaving 1/2-in. headspace. Freeze for up to 12 months.

Pizza base


1 envelope active dry yeast
1 cup warm water, 110° F.
1 1/2 teaspoons sugar
2 1/4 tsp 2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
2 tsp olive oil
1 teaspoon salt
Corn meal or fine semolina for dusting

  • Put warm water in a cup; sprinkle yeast over water and stir in sugar; let stand for about 10 minutes, or until it begins to bubble.
  • Combine 2 1/4 cups flour and salt in a large bowl; pour in oil and yeast mixture and stir until a stiff dough is formed. Turn dough out onto a floured surface; knead about 5 minutes, or until smooth and elastic. Add extra flour as needed to keep from sticking to hands and board.
  • Place in a large bowl greased with shortening or butter; turn dough over to coat the dough well. Cover with towel and let rise in a warm place for about 30 minutes to 1 hour. 
  • Dough should double in bulk. Punch down the dough and shape to fit a lightly greased pizza pan which as been sprinkled lightly with cornmeal or fine semolina .

Assembling Pizza

Toppings  (Of your choice)

Sliced Capsicum 1 no
Onion sliced 1 no
Tomatoes cut into circles - 1 
Jalapeno cut in to circles -1 no

You can add any topping may be veggie or a fruit topping on this pizza .Above listed are toppings i used.

  •  Keep dough slightly thick around the edges. Fill with favorite filling and toppings top them with Mozzarella cheese  and bake it in cake pan for about 15 to 20 minutes at 425°. I like to bake my pizza till the base gets slight brown color on top.

 I have tried making yeast free pizza before. I will surely share the recipe soon .. Here is the yeast free pizza i tried before :)


  • The pizza base can be made ahead and refrigerator for 1 day.
  • Topping can be your own choice.
