Party with pizza

I have tried some pizza recipes over the past few years but this recipe by chef Rahat is my all time favorite.

Its pretty simple to follow and gives amazing results.

Follow all instructions closely (specially for the sauce and dough) and it will surely turn out great.

Pizza Sauce

1 clove garlic

1/2 kg tomatoes ( 5 to 6 approx. )

pinch of salt

2 pinches sugar

1/4th teaspoon red chilli powder

1/2 teaspoon oregano

2 tablespoons cooking oil

Heat oil. Saute chopped garlic. Add tomatoes, roughly chopped. Season with salt, red chilli powder, oregano, sugar. Stir well.

Cook covered on low flame for an hour, stirring occasionally. Then blend in blender.

Store sauce bottled in refrigerator.

The Dough

3 cups flour

3/4th teaspoon salt

1/2 teaspoon sugar

1 teaspoon yeast

Mix salt, sugar and flour. Make a well in the center and add yeast. Add some water in the center and mix with spoon. Then make dough by adding water gradually. Dough will be sticky.

Slightly grease a bowl with oil. Place dough in this bowl and cover it with a wet cloth.
Keep dough in some dark warm place till it grows in size.

Later mix the dough well to form a smooth ball. Roll out dough and spread it on a greased round baking pan.

Note: For medium crust thickness make 2 pizzas out of this dough.


For the topping I usually use sausages or any left over chicken but here's the proper recipe to prepare it:

300grams boneless chicken

1 or 2 tablespoons oil

1 clove garlic

2 tablespoons lemon juice

sliced mushrooms

salt, to taste

Heat oil. Saute chopped garlic. Add boneless chicken. Stir fry. Add some water, lemon juice and some salt.

Cook till water dries up. Add mushrooms. Dish out and cool slightly.


This is the final stage.

When everything is ready preheat oven to 250
° C/480° F.

Spread the dough on a greased baking pan. Next spread some pizza sauce and some mozzarella cheese. Spread the cooked topping, level it with fork. Then cheese again, followed by few onion rings and capsicum strips.

Lastly sprinkle
1/2 teaspoon oregano, drizzle some hot sauce and very little olive oil on top.

Now the pizza is ready to go in the oven. Bake for 10 minutes.

Note: You can also use a combination of cheddar cheese & mozzarella cheese.


  1. Oh I can almost smell the melted cheese! The crust is so fine, what makes the crust so thin ?

  2. Nom nom nom :D
    This is sooooooooooo delicious :D

  3. Thanks both of you! :)

    @shumaila: I think its the way the dough is kept i.e. covered by a wet cloth in a greased bowl, that stops it from drying out.
