What a fun way to make use of leftover uttapas ! The Uttapam Pizza is so tasty that your kids will want you to make this every time you make dosa batter.

From onions and capsicum, to pizza sauce and cheese, the Uttapam Pizza has all the basic ingredients that go into your favourite pizza.

Put on your creative caps and make the Uttapam Pizza just the way you want to. Throw in your choice of toppings from pineapples and sweet corn to olives, top it with your own combo of sauces and perhaps a sprinkling of tandoori masala or chaat masala too, and watch an humble uttapam magically transform into an exciting Farm Fresh Pizza or Tandoori Paneer Pizza. The best part is that you don’t even need an oven to prepare this.

Uttapas Stuffed with Green Peas Tricolour Uttapam and Sandwich Uttapa are other exciting ways to make uttapas.
