Mushroom Capsicum Pizza with No-Yeast Base

Time for a challenge post! It was last month I started my tryst with the “We Knead To Bake” challenge with a savory bread and I had done the Chicken Bread. This month, we were asked to bake our own pizzas, moving out of our comfort zone. Even though I bake pizzas on and off, the only three pizzas that I have featured on the blog are here, here and here. The time I saw the challenge, I had my mind set out on trying this fruit pizza, but somehow it didn’t work out. I guess it was mainly because I was doing a lot of baking and the overload of sweet stuff at home was getting onto me, so I cancelled my initial plan. But I still wanted to make it to the challenge of the month, as I am not sure about how I would be able to work it out for the next month.


That is when I remembered about a cut-out of a pizza recipe, I had stored in my scrap book long ago. I pulled it out and referred to it, to make up this pizza. You can call it instant – there is no waiting time at all, as there is no use of yeast! From the start to finish, it took me hardly 45 minutes, including cutting the vegetables! If you crave for pizza but have no patience to wait for a raised dough, then this one is for you. The recipe called itself “Perfect Homemade Pizza”, which I don’t know I should vouch for or not! I love the yeasted base for sure, but then this base was buttery and soft that no one would believe you if you told them it took hardly any time. The kids loved it as well as the men, but it was not enough. Rasha very neatly stacked all the capsicum to the side of her plate and finished off the rest. I guess I can make her eat capsicum only when it is turned into a chutney! Grrr… hehe… till then off to the way the pizza was made…



Before moving on to end this post, I am a part of a little group called “Saturday Snapshots“, which is an event created by Siri and Shweta. I am so grateful that they have started it! Hopefully, I would be able to concentrate on bettering my pictures soon! I really don’t know if I can be regular, but definitely would love to trPiny to be. Their assignment #3 last Saturday (13/09/2014) was cut vegetables. Though I was late, I thought why not give it a start! So this is what I clicked while preparing this pizza. It was a night picture, clicked from my mobile camera since I had no patience to pull out my DSLR! Hehe…


Though the entry is closed, still I wanted to post it here as my first attempt, hopefully towards some better pictures, InShaAllah… πŸ™‚ Do check out the links above in case you are interested to join in!
