This week , I baked Mushroom n Bell Pepper Pizza for us. Home-made Pizza is very healthy and Quick to bake n make, We can do the toppings for our preference. Two weeks before, I tried to bake pizza but the weather plays a massive role for raising the dough it gone off and I baked rolls for us with that dough. This week is nice weather Sunny days, even last time I kept the dough inside the oven but it didn't came out right this time I kept my dough in direct Sunlight it came out perfect for all the 3 times raising.
This Pizza dough measurement I gave it here for thin n crispy base and it yields 4 bases can store the each base seperately in cling wrap and keep it inside the fridge use within 1 week, for this weekend We have invited our frenz for Dinner get-together. So, I planned to bake Pizza with different toppings for them for that made extra base and kept inside the fridge. I like the thin n Crispy base with the veggies should be in chunk size but, my Hubby prefers thick base with the veggies should be in small pieces. We doesn't like the Mozarella cheese, cos sometimes We feel heart burn after having the Pizza with Mozarella topping at the last We won't feel pleasant dinner. So, I used reduced low fat Cheddar cheese for my cheese topping. Next time i will give the recipe for thick base. Here, is the recipe for Mushroom and Pepper Pizza as follows,
