Ever since I have started making this Roti Pizza I have not bought pizza base at home or even baked one at home. What is the need?
Whenever kids want to eat pizza they say mummy make roti pizza or quesadilla. As I make both with whole wheat roti I do not feel guilty about feeding kids fast food.
We all want to reduce maida/plain flour from our daily diet but with kids growing taste in fast food it is becoming tougher. If we can replace plain flour with whole wheat flour in some of the recipes then there is no harm in indulging kids. Even my mother in law who is very particular about diet liked this roti pizza idea.
A special thanks to my son who not only helped me in making these pizzas but also took most of the photos. As it was Saturday and he was at home he helped me in baking, grated cheese and even bought cheese from the market.
Luckily both my kids like cooking and helping in kitchen. They must take after their father because I was definitely not like this when I was a kid
How to make Roti Pizza
Preparation time: 10 minutes
baking time: 7-8 minutes per pizza
200 grams Mozzrella cheese grated (you can use less cheese also if you want)
cheese spread (around 1 tsp for each roti)
8 tbsp pizza sauce ( I have used homemade pizza sauce. If you do not have you can use tomato ketchup also in its place)
3 medium sized onions chopped
1 large capsicum chopped
2 tomato seeds removed and chopped
¼ cup boiled corn
salt and black pepper to taste
½ tsp chaat masal
¼ tsp oregano
¼ tsp parsley
Note: You can use onions, tomato, capsicum, corn, baby corn, pineapple, olives, Brocolli or whatever else you like
To make Roti Pizza
Preheat the oven at 180 C for 15 minutes.
Chop Onions, tomato and Capsicum and add salt, pepper, oregano, parsley and chaat masala to them.
Make rotis regular way. Do not apply ghee on it. I generally make rotis beforehand and keep them in a casserole. Then I bake them one by one.
Apply cheese spread.
Apply some homemade pizza sauce.
Add vegetables. Mix everything mentioned under for vegetables. Divide into 8 portions. You can increase or decrease vegetables according to your taste.
Spread a layer of mozrella cheese on top.
Bake for 7-8 minutes. Mine were ready in this time. Rotis were crisp and cheese was all melted.
