Over to Rajeswari..
I am so excited and happy to write my very first guest post to Sandhya and I thank you for giving me the opportunity! And I feel honoured to do a guest post for a wonderful,talented blogger like you,who has a great passion about it and have a great photography skill and lovely writing style!
And Coming to the recipe, this idea flashed,when I saw a pamphlet I got from 7 eleven introducing Pizza bites. I loved the idea and thought it would be easy to make at home. As I have been making pizza from the scratch for quite a while now and have tried several buns, I was pretty confident in try these and enjoyed making these. This could be an easy party snack idea, kids would be super excited to have it and sure we can also enjoy this. The stuffing is flexible so you can experiment it with your favourite topping,let it be simple like what I have used or add on your favourites like black olives,mushrooms…it’s your choice!
Pizza Buns Recipe below
This deliciously easy Vegetarian Pizza bun makes a great party starter.
- 11/2 Cup All purpose flour
- 1/2 Cup Milk
- 1/8 Cup olive oil
- 1 Tsp Salt
- 11/2 Tsp Sugar
- 1 Tbsp Active dry yeast
- 1 Green Pepper | Capsicum chopped
- 1 Onion chopped
- 1 Tomato optional
- 1/2 Cup Grated mozzarella cheese
- 2 Tbsp Pizza sauce or any tomato based sauce
- 1 Tsp Italian herb of ur choice
- 1 Tsp Red chilli flakes
- 1/8 Tsp Salt
- 2 Tsp Oil
Heat milk until lukewarm,dissolve sugar and yeast. Let it rest for 10 minutes.
After 10 minutes the mixture would have been raised to frothy, proving that the yeast is active. If not,your yeast is not active and use active yeast.
Meanwhile, take flour in a large bow and make a dent in the middle. Add salt, oil and the yeast mixture in the dent and make a smooth pliable dough. If sticky sprinkle little more flour,if too dry sprinkle some water. The dough should be smooth and pliable.
Let it rest for 1 hour, wrap the bowl with cling wrap. After an hour the dough should have been raised.
Punch it down and knead to make it smooth. Make equal sized balls and arrange in a greased baking tray.Meanwhile prepare the filling.
Heat a pan with oil and fry capsicums,tomato and onion for just a minute. Cool down and add sauce, cheese, Italian seasoning, salt and chilli flakes . Mix well.
Flatten the prepared dough balls and keep a small lemon sized ball of the filling.
Pinch the edges towards centre to cover the filling as shown in the picture.
Arrange in the baking tray with the sealed side down. Make sure you have sealed properly,otherwise, the cheese will ooze out.
Pre heat the oven to 190o C and till then brush the buns with milk little and bake it for 18-20 minutes or until the buns start becoming golden brown on the top. Brush generously with butter after done.
Serve hot Pizza Buns with tomato ketchup or chilly sauce! Enjoy it with your favourite drink!
