This week the theme for Saturday snapshots- Food photography series was cutting vegetables for cooking and here goes my entry for the same.

for base
dosa batter 2 cups

for topping
pizza sauce 1 cup
mozarella cheese 1 cup
parmesan cheese 1 cup
italian seasoning 2 tbsp
bell pepper 1 chopped vertically
onion 1chopped half moon size
*carrots grated 2 (optional)
oil 2-3 tsp

  • Heat a pan and add the oil, add the sliced onion and bell pepper.Sauté until onion turn translucent on medium high flame (take about 3-4 minutes).
  • Heat another iron griddle/non-stick tawa.Smear oil if using an iron griddle, or omit this step if using a non-stick pan.Pour two ladles full of batter and gently spread out (about 5" round). Don't make it very thin like dosa;prefer to make it thick, otherwise it may get burned when you finish making the pizza.

  • Flip the other side when this end gets slightly done, and you're able to flip it (don't wait to get browned) and cook the other side half a minute.Turn it again and switch the flame to very low flame (THIS IS AN OPTIONAL STEP). OR You can just cook the dosa covered and thereby avoid flipping the dosa. Apply the pizza sauce on the cooked side itself.
  • Smear the pizza sauce, leaving a half inch space.Add the sautéed veggies with grated carrots. Add some italian seasoning and then cover it up with cheese.(If you take long to spread the topping, then it's better to switch off the flame till you finish spreading the topping and then put it on)
  • Keep the flame on low and cover with a lid.Wait for 5 -6 minutes to get the cheese melted and gooey, the dosa get a nice crisp base.Transfer to a plate.Cut in wedges and serve.
  • Repeat the same steps to make more dosa pizza.Serve hot and enjoy !!!
Serves ~ 6 pizza

* You can use any favourite veggies of your kid's choice.Just try using contrasting colours to make it colourful and appealing.
* Use a nicely fermented batter to yield softer pizzas.
* You can always increase the quantity of cheese to get a more cheesy pizza.Use your desired cheese.
* Use black olives and corn kernels instead of grated carrot.
* You can use bread instead of dosa and make bread pizza, or evn replace dosa with naan to make naanizaa. Sound interesting, ryt?? Go ahead and try on.

Dear Julie, it's a coincidence, to publish pizza the same day. Kids always love it. My son turns 22, next 25th and also enjoys eating and baking pizza. Your pizza has nothing to do with mine, different. Love your photos and Saturday snapshots.
As pizza is from Italy, here in València, we also bake something similar but different, because we don't add cheese.Its name is COCA. I' m sure you like it too.
I' ve got another Blog of challenges and I also publish my own recipes. The last. one is a coca.

Hace a lovely weekend. :-*
