Tawa Pizza

We often make pizza in oven, but how about doing the same on stove top. It’s a very simple and can be made quickly. To make the food fibre rich have used wheat flour, Wheat Bran & Oats instead of regular refined flours.

For topping:

For Pizza:
• Divide the dough to two and make round ball.
• With the help of the dry flour, roll into 10-12inch diameter thin circle
• Pre-heat the Pan or Tawa on stove top
• Place the rolled pizza base and cover it and cook for 2-3mins or until the lower side gets little brown.
• Flip it upside down and reduce the flame to minimum.
• Then spread the pizza sauce and add toppings
• Sprinkle cheese, olives & chilli flakes as per your taste.
• Cover pizza and cook for about 6-7mins on medium flame until cheese is melted and the lower side gets little brown.

Serve hot

• Once the sauce and topping is done cook Pizza on a medium low flame for even cooking.
• Toppings can be done as per your choice
• You can even use half wheat flour and half white/plain flour
• You can just use wheat flour and skip oats and bran
