Veg Pizza - Stove Top version


Share with friends and family

 Pizza is the most loved quick bite that's enjoyed by all ..Be it kids or adults ,there is something in Pizza that makes it everyone's favorite. 

Kids find the long string of hot melted cheese  while they take a bite as an attraction while elders love the various toppings that are used on the Pizza to make it tasty and enjoyable .

As much as many consider pizza as a junk food or a overload of fat due to cheese,I would say we can make it really healthy by using the whole wheat or multi grain pizza base , loads of vegetables and very minimal cheese or no cheese at all . 

One of the best ways to get the kids eat as much as veggies as possible.  I keep trying various toppings and this time I used even some grated carrots and it was a very nice welcome change.  

Nowadays markets are flooded with a variety of ready made pizza base breads and I was super impressed with the thin crust multigrain base which I have used in the recipe. Though we can bake our own pizza bread at home, for sudden pizza cravings I pick up the pizza base from the nearby organic store. 

Cheese was used very minimally and a mix of cheddar and mozzarella from my favorite brand Amul . Amul is a very famous brand which is widely used in India and known for its superior quality of diary products ,ice creams and chocolates.

This flavor packed and tasty pizza was  prepared for the World Street Food Theme on our food group Shhh Cooking Secretly Challenge.  I was partnered with the amazing blogger Preethi who was also the host for this month's theme. She gave me the secret ingredients Oregano and Tofu while I gave her Yeast and icing sugar with which she has made delicious Firi Firi

  1. Priya! I am coming over it has been ages since I made pizza at home. I must say your pizza on the stove top is the best way to make pizza. You need not wash up too many things :D

  2. I remember once I had invited my friend and her family over for a pizza dinner and the power went away. We waited for a while but it didn't come back. So how to make the pizza without an oven. That is the first time I made them on the stove. Since then it has become a popular option whenever I don't want to switch the oven on especially during the hot season. Yours look so inviting, wish I could have a slice.

  8. That pizza looks just perfect, well-baked, cheesy and with loads of veggies! We are all pizza fans at home, and I make the stove-top version often. As you rightly said, pizza can be healthy too if made using the right sort of ingredients.
