  • 2 and 1/2 cups wheat flour
  • 1/2 cup white flour
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1 tbsp sugar
  • 2 tbsp oil
  • 1/4 cup curd
  • salt to taste
  • around 1 to 1 and 1/4 cups water

For the topping:

  • 1/4 cup capsicum chopped lengthwise
  • 1/4 cup onion chopped lengthwise
  • 1/2 cup baby corn chopped lengthwise - parboiled
  • 1/4 tsp oregano
  • 3 tbsp pizza sauce
  • 1/2 cup mozarella cheese
  • 1 generous pinch chilli flakes as needed
  • oil as needed


  • To a mixing bowl - add wheat flour, white flour and baking powder.
  • Add baking soda, sugar and oil.
  • Add curd and required salt.
  • Mix well with your finger tips for even mixing, then add water little by little and knead to form a smooth dough not too stiff not too loose just like our chapathi dough.
  • Cling wrap the dough and leave aside for at least 2-3 hours in a warm place.
  • Meanwhile prepare the topping - Heat a tsp of oil, sauté baby corn, capsicum and onion along with oregano and chilli flakes.
  • Sauté for 2mins, set aside.
  • Now the dough must have risen. Get ready with all other ingredients.
  • Punch down and divide the dough into 3 balls. Take a ball flatten it thick or thin as per your liking, I made a slightly thin base. Prick with fork.
  • Brush the top with oil, heat a tawa or skillet. Carefully transfer the base to the skillet. Simmer and cook for 3 mins.
  • Flip to other side and cook for 3 mins. Now spread pizza sauce, arrange the vegetables.
  • Sprinkle cheese, cook covered for 2 mins or until cheese is gooey and melts. Switch off, remove and cut into wedges and serve Tawa Pizza immediately.


  • The cooking time of the base depends on the thickness of the pizza.
  • You can use any of your favorite vegetables.
  • I used homemade pizza sauce. You can use store bought too.
  • Flipping over and cooking ensures cooking both the sides evenly.
