Now coming back to todays recipe..I love pizza a lot..I can eat it all day..But I won’t..The one thing that made me to stay away from it is thinking about the fat and calories.After I discovered this recipe,believe it or not, I started making pizza once a week.

  8. Tried this aarthi. Very tasty though it is made with wheat flour. But why my dough is not doubling in size? Even when I tried naan using maida also my dough did not raise. But taste wise it is good.What is the brand of yeast u r using? My yeast contains little big size balls not as yours. Does that make any difference?

  9. @MadhuIt is because your yeast is not activated. You have to activate the yeast in warm water with some sugar. If you add yeast to hot water then it will die and the dough wont rise.

    1. Aarthi, recently started trying your recipes. Thanks for the excellent recipes. In this wheat pizza base recipe, the measurement is for dry active yeast or instant yeast ? Could you tell me the measurement for dry active yeast for this recipe ? Also, where to buy good dry active yeast brand in Bangalore ? Thanks in advance
