Pizzas are yummy. Italians might have just invented the best take-away dinner/snack/lunch/breakfast ever. In my post-grad, every Thursday was Pizza Night for my roomie and I, chiefly because the mess food sucked most on that day. Then we discovered the onslaught of exams and late night studies and pizza ordering became the rule of the room. Thankfully, I passed that phase but Pizza still beckons on Fridays specially when I have hit the gym every single day for the past 5 days and the weekend is round the corner….so enjoy. But that yummy pizza just screws up every effort for the past 5 days and is not really healthy to say the least. Here is a home-made pizza recipe that I am sure you will love and that will watch your tyres round your tummy while you watch it go down your throat at break-neck speed.


2 Pizza Base (available at any bakery)

2 tblsp butter or ghee

½ cup tomato ketchup

1  cup processed cheese, grated

1 large onion

1 large tomato

1 capsicum

Salt and pepper to taste

Spread butter on pizza base. Then spread tomato ketchup on it. Chop tomato, onion and capsicum finely.  Sprinkle cheese on the pizza base. On top of that, sprinkle onion, tomato and capsicum. Add salt and pepper to taste. Bake in microwave oven till the cheese starts to bubble and the base turns golden brown. Cut into slices and serve.


Tip: The pizza can be toated in a closed grill also. The toppings can be varied according to personal choice.
