Vegetable Cheese Burst Pizza

I am pizza fan for quite a long time now but am very fuzzy about the toppings. Also I like it to be a cheese overload with cheese oozing out from all sides. However most pizza specializing outlets sell pizzas in larger sizes which happen too much for th two of us – my hubby and me.

So we had been avoiding visits to pizza shops. But that’s not a solution. I just wanted to have a cheese burst pizza dominos style so decided to try it out myself at home. The attempt was a success and we both enjoyed the pizza.


Recipe :

Ingredients:

  • 1 cup pizza sauce
  • 1 pound frozen pizza dough
  • 1 small tub cheese spread (8 oz)
  • 1 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
  • 1/2 cup sliced onion
  • 1/2 cup green, yellow, red, orange bell peppers, julienned
  • 2-3 button mushrooms, sliced
  • Zip lock bag

You can include more variety of veggies like olives, jalapeños, etc

Method :

  1. Roll the dough into a log and divide into two equal parts. One part makes one medium-sized pizza.
  2. Take one half and divide it in such way that one is slightly bigger than other (like 2/3 and 1/3).
  3. Grease baking tray with oil and pre-heat oven to 350F.
  4. Take the bigger dough piece and roll it into a thin disc. Place this on the greased tray and keep it covered for 10 mins.
  5. Roll the other piece into a thin disc as well. Roast this very lightly on a tawa. 
  6. Put half the cheese spread in a ziplock bag or piping bag and cut the tip.
  7. Pipe out the cheese spread on the roasted disc leaving the edges. Spread if required.
  8. Invert this on the other disc that was kept covered such that the cheese applied side faces the other disc and is at the center.
  9. Now pipe out the a cheese border along the edge of the roasted disc.
  10.  Then use the edge of the larger uncooked disc to cover and seal the piped out cheese.
  11. Apply around half a cup of the pizza sauce on the prepared pizza base.
  12. Next as per your liking put the cheese or veggies first. I put 1/4 of the shredded cheese.
  13. Then sprinkled the veggies and over which spread another 1/4 cup of shredded cheese.
  14. Bake the pizza in the preheated oven for 10-15 min.
