It’s been quite a while since I’ve been making pizzas from scratch. I’m kinda over the pizzas you get outside, except for of course Pizza Express, which I crave and love! Dominos has a floury crust, Pizza Hut’s is too oily and Smokin Joes is not a pizza! There are a few redeeming brands like Joey’s and Frisbees in Andheri West that have some superb toppings. I recently had the Popeye’s Olive Pizza at Frisbees and loved it! But, nothing is better than making your own pizza from scratch, right? So, I’m posting my version of homemade pizza.
Now, I cheat a bit – more because I’m a little afraid of bread making – and use a flatbread recipe from Saee’s My Jhola blog (which I follow quite religiously). I have finally got the hang of handling the dough and rolling it out thin and evenly. Also, it’s fast; the proofing and baking time is much less compared to a regular pizza dough; you can make it on a whim; and I have a screenshot of the recipe saved on my phone!
Before we go to the recipe, here are some pictures of the pizzas I’ve made from scratch using Saee’s recipe. (P.S. If you want to stay true to the original pizza recipe, she has one on her blog).
