Roti Pizza

on

Hello everyone! Today I am posting recipe for an Indian version of pizza. You can make this using leftover chapatti/roti or make fresh roti/chapatti. I have used my leftover chapatti/roti and made a fresh batch using makai/maize flour which makes the base crisp and gives it the feel of thin crust pizza. You can use any topping of your choice. Make these and your kids will gobble up the rotis. You can adjust the cheese as per your liking or avoid it also still tastes great. It is very easy to make with easily available ingredients. So lets get cooking…

Ingredients:

Leftover chapatti/rotis – 3-4 (as you have left)

For making fresh batch:

Wheat flour – 2 cups

Makai atta/maize flour – 1 cup

Salt – 1/4 tsp

Oil – 1 tbsp

Water for kneading

For topping:

Onions (diced) – 2 large

Tomato (diced) – 2 large

Capsicum (diced) – 1 large

Corn kernels/Makai (boiled) – 1 cup

Pizza sauce/tomato ketchup – for spreading on roti

Oregano and chili flakes for sprinkling on top

Salt as per taste

Cheese (processed) – 3-4 cubes (1 cube for per roti)

Oil for greasing

Ketchup and Mustard sauce

Method:

For making fresh batch of roti/chappati:

In a bowl sieve the wheat flour and maize flour. To this add the salt and oil and mix it well. Now knead into soft dough using water. Cover and keep aside for resting for 10 minutes. After ten minutes make small balls out of this dough (depending on what size roti you want). Roll these balls into rotis/chapattis and cook them. Keep aside.

For pizza:

1) Take a non stick tawa and grease it with little oil. Place the cooked roti on the tawa.

2) Apply the pizza sauce/tomato ketchup on the roti. Now grate the cheese on it. Top it with the onion, tomato, capsicum and boiled corn. Sprinkle the oregano, chili flakes and some salt. Now cover the tawa and cook on low flame till cheese melts and the roti base will become crisp.

3) Serve hot. Top it with ketchup and mustard sauce.

    Looks delicious. My children used to love these when they were younger. Sometimes I would roll them up and pack them in their tiffin box.

    I have this weird idea of joining two rotis with cheese spread now to make it a cheese burst version.

    1. shail says:

      Yes you can do that too but seal the edges using a little cornstarch slurry or else the cheese will spill out. 😊😊
