  • Heat water till lukewarm dissolve sugar, add yeast and keep it for 15-20 mins at a warm place.


  • It should become frothy as shown in picture below other wise don’t use it.


  • Add salt to the flour then slowly make soft dough using the yeast mixture add more water if required.
  • Knead the dough very nicely for 10 mins applying refined oil in between.
  • Keep the dough in a bowl and apply oil nicely on all sides so that it doesn’t dries up or stick to the bowl.


  • Let it rest at a warm place for 1 1/2 hr and it will increase in size as shown in picture below.


  • Punch it back to the original size and keep it again to rise for 1 hr.
  • Meanwhile cut aubergine into slices apply salt and keep aside.
  • Roughly chop all other veggies.
  • Wash the aubergine slices and grill in a pan with li’l oil.
  • Divided the dough into 3 equal parts and roll it into big circle applying dry flour.
  • Apply sauce over it then put veggies, sprinkle pizza seasoning and salt if required, aubergine slices and grated cheese.


  • Bake this in a pre-heated oven for 20 mins at 200 degree.
  • Yummyyy thin crust pizza is readyy…

Note* If you want normal crust not thin crust then divide the dough into two equal parts and this quantity will thus make 2 Pizza.
