Ingredients
  

  • For pizza dough
  • 1 pack active dry yeast
  • 2 cups water
  • 2 cups whole wheat flour I use multigrain atta
  • 2 and 1/2 cups approx all purpose flour
  • 1 tbl spn butter
  • 1 tea spn honey
  • 1 tea spn dired oregano
  • Olive oil
  • Salt
  • For topping
  • Sauce
  • Corn
  • Bellpepper
  • Tomato
  • Paneer marinated in chilli powder and salt and then fried
  • Mozzarella cheese

Instructions
 

  • Take 1/2 cup lukewarm water and add honey, yeast to it.
  • Leave it aside till it becomes frothy (yeast gets active).
  • Now add remaining water, salt, wheat flour, oregano, melted butter and mix. (I sue stand mixer for this).
  • Gradually add remaining flour till the mixture comes into a dough but still very sticky.
  • Now take the dough on a floured surface and knead for a min.
  • Put the dough in a big bowl (I just use the stand mixer bowl), add 1-2 tea spns olive oil and move the dough around to coat with oil.
  • Leave the bowl covered till it doubles in volume (around 1 and 1/2 to 2 hrs.
  • Now punch the dough down to remove all the air.
  • Make small balls and roll them into rounds (as thick as stuffed paratha).
  • Brush cupcake pan with butter.
  • Now line each cup with the dough, brush with oil/butter, cover with a wet towel or plastic wrap and leave for about 30mins.
  • Preheat the oven for 400F (I keep a pizza stone in the middle rack, the stone helps to get crispy crust) , Keep the pan in hot oven and bake for about 5-6mins (I didn't want the dough becoming too soggy, so baked for few mins).
  • For the sauce, I used a mix of marinara sauce and basil pesto, use any desired sauce.
  • I microwaved the frozen corn and bellpepper cut into small pieces for about 1 mins.
  • I marinated paneer in chilli powder, salt and then shallow fried for few minutes.
  • Now add a tea spn of sauce in each cup, add corn, bellpepper, paneer, top with cheese and bake at 400F for 15mins.
  • I then removed the cupcakes from pan and bake them on the pizza stone for another 7-8mins.
