I used buy pizza base from shops and keep that in fridge. Whenever i need to make a quick dinner or want to fix some urgent hunger pangs, i spread tomato sauce, and i put whatever veggies or toppings i get on hand, sprinkle over lots of cheese and pop this in microwave for a min. Thats it i have a delicious cheesy pizza on hand in few mins..
FIRST CHECK OUT MY
NO FAIL BASIC PIZZA DOUGH
But later i came to know that making pizza base at home is not that difficult at all. All you need is your basic pizza dough and you can make a whole batch of pizza base right in your kitchen. I made this pizza base from my basic no fail pizza dough recipe and made two kinds of pizza using this, a egg pizza which i will posting next and a olive cheese pizza, which i will be sharing soon. Hope you will give this a try and let me know how it turns out for you..
Resting Time : 1 hour
You can use my whole wheat pizza dough recipe as well..
