Althoughpizza base is readily available in Indian stores, the fresh taste and texture of a homemade Indian style pizza base are unbeatable. And, well, it is not such an adventurous activity either. It is quite easy to make at home, as this oven cooked base for pizza with yeast will show you.

Pizzas have crossed geographical boundaries to become a hot favourite all over the world! While it is convenient to have Pizzas outside, it is also super fun to make it at home because this gives you the freedom to make your pizza exactly the way you want it, with your favourite toppings and sauces, and just the amount of cheese you wish to have.

We have made the basic pizza base by activating the yeast first. Take yeast in a small bowl, add sugar and add water, make sure the water is lukewarm and not hot as it may kill the yeast. The rising time will vary on the climatic condition and quality of the yeast. Once the yeast is activated, you will see a frothy layer formed on the top. Further, take plain flour in a bowl, add yeast water mixture, add olive oil and some salt to it. Combine all the ingredients and knead into a dough soft and smooth dough. Cover the dough with a wet muslin cloth and keep aside for 1 hour in a warm place or till the dough is double in size. If you don’t plan to use the dough for a day, place it in the fridge straight away; take it out 3-4 hrs before using and then continue the rest of the procedure. Once the dough is risen, remove excessive air and grease the dough and divide it. Thereafter, roll it into desired size and prick it using a fork so that the base does not puff up. Bake in a preheated oven for 5 minutes and your thin pizza base is ready to use!!

  2. Prick the circle evenly using a fork so that it doesn’t puff up.
  3. Similarly, roll and prick out the remaining 2 circles and place all the 3 homemade pizza base on a baking tray. If you do not have an oven, then refer this recipe to make basic pizza base without oven.
