Hi Tarla Dalal Team! Such wonderful collection of recipes! Thank you. Quick question reg this recipe - Do we need to dissolve the yeast in warm water seperately first, before adding it to the flour? Thanks!

   No, you dont need to dissolve it separately.

I just love fresh dough pizzas. I always made pizzas with plain pizza dough, but yesterday I made pizzas with the Herb Pizza dough. Wow! The pizzas turned out to be more flavourful ....very, very tasty. This recipe makes a perfect pizza crust, the proportions are just right. I used dry yeast. I roll the pizza dough, spread the pizza sauce and top it with onions, peppers, zucchini, paneer and corn, bake it in the tandoor for a while, then top it with grated mozzarella cheese and bake again till the cheese melts and there are golden brown spots on it. Just one bite into the pizza and everyone in the family said....Wow!

I tried this at home and it has a completely different taste than those you get in the shops. Plus its home made pizza base without any preservatives..very nice.
