I’ve tasted homemade pizza at shalini’s house recently and i liked it very much.She taught me tawa method using readymade pizza base.But I tried in microwav in my own way.It tasted excellent , soft and flavorful.We all loved it.You can try on stovetop too.The mistake i made was,i bought normal low fat amul cheese..I dint buy mozarella cheese.I dint know there are varieties of cheese.So when you want to try this recipe, do use pizza cheese.It will give u the exact taste like Pizza hut.My parents came yesterday & i prepared this for them .They loved it a lot.

Ingredients :
  • Pizza base – 1 no (medium sized )
  • Tomato ketchup –1- 2 tbsp
  • Tomato – 1 no ( cut into thin slices )
  • Big Onion – 1 no (thin slices )
  • Capsicum – 1/2 no (Small cube cut ) (i cut a little into slices and remaining into cubes )
  • Green chilly – 1/2 no (finely chopped ) (if u get jalapeno,u can use it )
  • Garlic – 5 flakes (finely chopped )
  • Olive oil – 1 tbsp
  • Butter – 1 tbsp
  • Salt & pepper powder – a pinch (optional )
  • Cheese – 1 small block .(Grated)
Method :
    1. In  a  MW safe bowl, Add 2 tsp of olive oil .Take the sliced onions, capsicum and green chilly & garlic pieces..Mix it well. MW high for 1 minute to saute well.Take care, the color should not change.(My MW is of 700w output.Please adjust the timings according to urs)
    2. Remove and set aside.. Take a MW plate and keep the base on it.
    3. Apply butter on both the sides of pizza base and MW medium high for just 30 seconds..Please dont keep it more because the base will become hard.. (If u want , u can omit this step .just apply the butter on the base.)
    4. Then , apply the tomato ketchup on one side of the base evenly..Apply more if u like..
    5. Take the sautéed onion, capsicum mixture and spread it with tomato slices in ur desired order.. Grate the cheese and spread it all over the pizza..
    6. Then pour 1 tsp of olive oil over the pizza and brush the sides too..
    7. MW high for 2-3 mins and just leave it till the cheese melts..
    8. Remove and sprinkle salt and pepper powder..Serve hot !!

Cheese is a good source of calcium, which helps build strong bones and teeth, and also prevents osteoporosis. Cheese provides 25% of the calcium in the food supply.
Cheese contains a high concentration of essential nutrients: calcium, phosphorus, zinc, vitamin A, riboflavin, vitamin B12 and high-quality protein. Certain cheeses, including Cheddar, Swiss, Blue, Monterey Jack and process American, have been demonstrated to reduce the risk of dental caries.
Individuals who are lactose-intolerant can safely consume aged cheeses, which contain little or no lactose.
Both regular and low fat cheese products are available in today’s market. Research has shown that a diet that includes three servings per day of dairy foods (such as low fat and fat-free milk and yogurt, high and low fat cheeses) as well as eight to 10 servings per day of fruits and vegetables reduces blood pressure and other risk factors for heart disease, including lowering HDL-cholesterol and blood homocysteine levels.
New research demonstrates that an energy-controlled diet rich in dairy products, including cheese in moderation, is associated with lower body weight as well as reduced risk of developing insulin resistance syndrome.
