Pizza :)

21 Jan

Well, considering I’ve been here nearly 2.5 years now its weird that I haven’t tried to make pizza more often. And no…I can’t eat pizza outside in most places. Lets not discuss why ;). So Dinesh agreed that we’d make pizza yesterday night. It came out absolutely awesomely (if that’s even a word ;)).

Making pizza is pretty simple really. We didn’t fry any of the veggies even lightly – just put all the toppings with the pizza inside the oven and baked it. Straight. Here’s what we did.

– Chop up a little less than 1 onion, 1 full capsicum, a serrano chilly and 1 tomato into as small pieces as I could.

– Dinesh spread some sour cream (yes) and sprinkled a little salt on the base of the pizza since we didn’t have sauce at all. He then grated some carrots and spread all that on the base again where the carrots stuck to the sour cream.

– Spread plenty of grated cheese over the carrots.

– Evenly spread all the chopped veggies all over the pizza base. Sprinkle some green peas on the top of the veggies.

– Spread some more cheese over the veggies.

– We then kept it all in the oven for a while. No I don’t remember how long, except that you know that when the cheese starts melting and the base starts turning brown – its time to reduce the heat for sure.

– Once this happened we turned the heat down, added a little corn for topping it up and sprinkled some seasoning as well as some chilly flakes on the pizza.

– Put it into the oven again and let it cook the corn for a little longer as it was in the freezer.

– Gently pulled the tray out, and let it cool a bit. Since we hadn’t already cut it into slices before keeping it inside the oven, we gently cut it into slices. The taste was super super awesome.

– We both ended up eating one slice too many – a 12 inch base is definitely too much for 2 people – a 10 inch base makes more sense. Maybe next time haha 🙂

Here’s a pic that Dinesh took though – all credits to decoration goes solely and wholly to him – he definitely has an eye for it and I just hold off doing any of the decorating myself.

    Wow, that looks great! I am so use to getting pizza on the go from my favorite Pizza Delivery in San Jose that I too have forgotten not only how easy it is for me to make pizza, but also how fun it is. I will have to try yours out. Thanks for sharing.
