  1. For the Pizza Sauce, clean, wash and remove the eyes of the tomatoes. You do not want them in your pizza sauce.

  4. Place the tomatoes in boiling water for 2 to 3 minutes or till the skin begins to peel. 
  5. Drain the tomatoes using a strainer. 
  6. Cool slightly and peel, they will peel easily because of the criss cross that was made at the base of the tomatoes. 
  7. Cut them into 2 and deseed them using a sharp knife. Removing the seeds not only ensures a smooth puree, but also ensures that the sourness of the tomatoes reduces.

  10. Blend in a mixer till smooth. Use a big mixer jar and not the small one as when you will blend it will overflow. Keep aside.

This bhakri pizza is a great alternative to regular plain flour base pizza. the gluten free bhakri is delicious and I really liked the paneer on top. It tastes just as good as normal pizza, but is relatively healthier. Wonderful recipe, would reccommend to all!
