Instant Pizza

Wanted to make something different over the weekend.. So tried Pizza, but without any preparation or proper ingredients! This one's inspired from Aayi's Recipes, but couldn't follow the recipe, as I didn't have anything like olives, corns, mushrooms..

For the base: My yeast just doesn't activate, so made a dough (with 1.5 cups atta / wheat flour) like we do for chapati, and added baking soda to it. Then rolled it like chapati, but thick. Poked it with fork all over, and baked it each a preheated (to 150 deg C) oven for 3-5 mins, till semi done
Toppings: Then chopped onion, tomatoes and capsicum and cooked it in a little olive oil, salt and oregano (I had that!!). Also, grated some cheese and kept aside
Sauce: Took tomato ketchup, added some hot sauce and ginger garlic paste to it.

Then, took a base, put the sauce, the toppings, cheese, and baked it for 3 mins in the oven, till the cheese melted..
but beware... home made soda wheat base is not that tasty.. best had fresh, as it tends to dry up or get a bit chewy without maida!
And the best part was that it was quite good, light, healthy.. and no horrible heavy feeling like we get with the take away / restaurant ones!
