We all love Pizza and being a vegetarian, Veg pizza in an obvious choice. I love to have as many vegetables as possible on top.
My personal favorite is green bell-pepper (called Capsicum in India) as it provides a lot of color and crunchiness to veggie pizza.
Normally, we buy the un-baked pizza base from market and then top it up with cheese and veggie’s to bake. I have personally never liked the pizza base partially because of not been able to successfully bake it in a desired manner.
The reason could be anything from the quality of the base or something else. So, I decided to make the fresh base at home and try the taste. The final product was certainly much better, hygienic and crispier.
We make Pizza in Microwave convection Oven from scratch i.e. starting with Pizza dough. Here is the step by step recipe.
Please remember that you do need a convection mode in your Microwave for baking. A simple microwave is not sufficient to run through this recipe.
As far as brand is concerned, it does not matter. We use the Onida Microwave Convection Oven and we have seen our friends and relatives using IFB, Samsung and LG too. The process and recipe remains the same. You may have to refer your Microwave Oven’s manual for turning the convection mode ON.
Note: The Microwave Oven AND Microwave Convection are same. You cannot bake in a Microwave without convection mode.
