Whole Wheat Paneer and Capsicum Thin Crust Pizza

Finally, Yea finally I am going to post the pizza recipe that I have been wanting to try out for ages! This month Aparna asked us to bake our own bread with the theme pizzas. I was so happy that this reason would give me the chance to bake a pizza!

Since I was doing Pizza, I thought I might as well go towards whole wheat that APF and also made the toppings jut like how Lil Angel would prefer. Her favorite paneer and capsicum with just enough cheese to cover the topping.No, she is not into the gooey, cheesy thing!

I used:
For the base
Adapted from Sharmis Passions
Yields -8- 5" Pizzas[Thin crust]

Whole wheat flour- 1 1/4 cups
Instant yeast - 1 tablespoon
Milk - 1/4 cup
Water- 1/4 cup
Sugar- 1 teaspoon
Salt- 1/4 teaspoon
Oil- 2 tablespoons

For the topping

Small paneer cubes- 1/2 cup
Tomato sauce- 2 tablespoons
Oregano-1/2 teaspoon
Pepper powder- 1/2 teaspoon

Tri colored capsicum- cut into small piece

Grated cheese
Tomato sauce / pizza sauce as needed 

Milk for brushing

 In a bowl, take the flour, yeast, salt and sugar.Mix.Add oil, water and milk and knead to a smooth dough.Add milk first and then add water little by little till you get the right consistency.

Knead well .The dough should be smooth and not too sticky.Add a little flour if its too sticky and a little water / milk if it is too hard.C cover and keep till it doubles in volume.After it rises, punch out the air.

While the dough is kept for rising, make the paneer topping. In a bowl take tomato sauce,oregano, pepper powder. Add paneer cubes. Mix well and cover and keep aside.

Divide the dough into balls and roll out into thin discs. Use a lid to make out circles. Prick with a fork and Brush a little milk over the base.Place the pizza base on a greased tray and spread tomato sauce over it.Add a layer of grated cheese, chopped tri color capsicum, paneer cubes, more grated cheese.

Bake in a pre heated oven @ 180 degrees for 10 minutes or till the cheese melts.

Remove from the oven and sprinkle oregano and red chili flakes...

Homemade pizza is ready to be served....

This is how my Lil Angel loves, with paneer and a little less of cheese... Go on grab a bite....

Bon Appetit...
