Stove top pizza recipe with step by step pictures.
Prep Time: 30 to 40 minutes
Cook time: 10 to 12 minutes
Yield: 2 -6" or 1- 12" pizza

For Pizza Base
  1. All purpose flour- 1 3/4 cups
  2. Active dry yeast-2 tsp
  3. Salt-to taste
  4. Sugar-1 tsp
  5. Olive oil-2 tbsp
  6. Warm water-about 1/2 cup( or as required)
For topping

  2. Bell pepper,diced-1 small
  3. Mushroom, sliced-few
  4. Tomato,diced-1 small
  5. Pizza sauce-1/2 cup( I used homemade pizza sauce)
  6. Grated cheese-as required
  7. Dried Oregano-1/4 tsp( or as required)
  8. Olive oil-as required

  • To prepare the pizza base,combine all purpose flour,yeast,salt,sugar and olive oil.Mix well.Add just enough water to form a soft dough.Knead the dough for about 5 minutes or until it is soft.Cover with a kitchen towel .Allow it to rise,in a warm place,for about 25 to 30 minutes or until doubled in volume.

  • Punch down the dough and divide it into two equal parts.Transfer one half onto a floured surface and roll it into a circle.(Do not make it very thick.)
  • To prepare the topping,heat olive oil in a pan and add onion,saute for a minute.Add bell pepper,and mushroom,saute for about a minute.Finally add tomatoes and cook until it is just done.( this step is purely optional,you can also use the diced vegetables as it is ,without cooking).

  • Now to prepare the pizza ,heat a non stick pan and place the rolled dough on it ,cook for few minutes on a medium low flame.Cook until it is lightly browned on the bottom.(Check by gently lifting up a corner using a spatula.)

  • Flip it over and drizzle oil on the sides.Spread the pizza sauce on top.Sprinkle grated cheese and arrange the diced vegetables ,finally sprinkle dried oregano on top.Cover and cook over medium low heat for few minutes ( about 5 minutes)or until the cheese melts.
