These “cheeseless” pizzas are my creation for those who cant have cheese due to some reason or the other. You can enjoy a pure vegetarian pizza without cheese! They are healthy and delicous even when cold!!
I am sorry the pic isnt much to look at …but the taste was awesome!! I minced everything up because my husband has a phobia to zucchini and eggplants!! This way he didnt know what he was eating which was good as well!
FOR THE DOUGH:
1 envelope of baking powder (2.5 teaspoons)
2 tablespoons of oil
1 teaspoon oil
1 tablespoon sugar ( you can omit this if you want)
1 cup of warm milk(FOR VEGAN please use water)
2.5-3 cups of white flour (or as much as you need to make the dough)
put the baking powder in a bowl and add the warm milk and leave it to froth (10 minutes) add the salt, the oil and the sugar and as much white flour as you need. Make a pliable dough and knead it well ( 5minutes at least…good arm work out!!!). Keep covered for about 6 hours.
FOR THE SAUCE:
1 onion chopped
2 cloves chopped garlic
3 red ripe tomatoes chopped
1 peeled small zucchini
1 peeled small eggplant (aubergine)
1 small red capsicum ( if you use the red one u will get a better color, i used the green 😦 thats why the color isnt soo red)
1 teaspoon dried oregano
salt and sugar to taste
1 tablespoon olive oil
in a pan heat the olive oil and add the chopped onions, and cook till transparent. Then add all the vegetables and salt and cook till all is mushy and dry. Add the sugar and the oregano. Cool the mxiture and blend in a blender. Taste n correct seasoning.
heat the oven to 180 deg. Make small balls of the dough (for mini pizzas). Roll each ball into a small round (not too thin else you will get a biscuit type crispiness..i dont mind it). Spread some of the vegetable sauce on it and bake for about 10-15 mins till done.
IF YOU WANT YOU CAN ADD GRATED CHEESE!!!!!!
