Three Cheese Pizza
Three Cheese Veg Pizza
Dominoes is gonna charge you almost 500 rs or 10$ for this pizza, and you can make the same at home for say 150 rs max! That too because cheeses are slightly expensive. But you substitute maybe gouda for processed cheese and have a tasty Italian affordable meal in the comfort of your home!! Ingredients are easily available in all basic grocery shops, and cheeses you can easily get in any supermarket. I tried this recipe after watching an Italian show and I wanted to make a pizza from scratch. As I was kneading the dough, I heard the dominoes three cheese pizza ad on tv!! Luckily my sister in law had come from Germany a few days back and I had all cheeses in the fridge! I invited my school friend over for dinner, and trust me, the meal was great! It’s mostly a basic recipe for a veg pizza, but non vegetarians can all chicken or sea food as per their taste. I’ll post for non veg pizza very soon. Do try it, I’m sure your kids would want you catering for their next B’day bash!!

Serves 2 large pizzas or 3-4 medium ones
Ingredients for the Dough
3 cups (400g) plain flour
2 tsp dried yeast
2 tsp salt
1 cup warm water
3 tbsp olive oil

Method for making dough
Prep Time: 10 minutes
Resting Time: 30-60 minutes
 
  • Place flour, yeast and salt in a bowl and mix. 
  • Gradually add the water and olive oil then knead by hand for 7-10 minutes until the dough is smooth. 
  • Place dough in a lightly oiled bowl and cover with cling wrap. Set aside in a warm place to rise for 30 minutes to an hour until it almost doubles in volume.
  • Knead dough gently for a few minutes to remove some air. 
  • Divide dough in two and roll out pizza bases. Sprinkle a little flour on the bench before rolling to prevent dough from sticking.
