  • To begin with Khakra Vegetable Pizza, add whole wheat flour, red chilli powder, turmeric powder, kasuri methi, ajwain, salt and cooking oil in a mixing bowl. Mix
  • everything well.
  • Add water little at a time and knead into a stiff dough. Cover and let it sit for about 10 minutes.
  • Divide the dough into equal portions. Take one portion and roll it very thin. Dust very little flour on it if needed to roll the dough. The dough should be rolled as thin as
  • possible.
  • Carefully lift the dough and place it on a hot griddle on medium flame. Let it cook on one side and brush very little oil on the top and then flip it over. Using a small cloth
  • press the khakara to cook it from all the side. Turn one more time and brush oil.
  • Press the khakra again and repeat the process till the khakara turns crisp, gets brown spots all over and is fully cooked.
  • Repeat this for the remaining dough and let the khakhras cool and then store in airtight container for about a month.
  • The next step is to assemble the pizza. Heat 1 teaspoon oil in a pan and add chopped capsicum and sauté for about 1 minute. Next add small florets of broccoli and cook for
  • another one minute.
  • Add a little salt to taste, mix everything well. Turn off the flame and keep it aside. We want the vegetables to cook a bit but still be crunchy. So do not overcook these
  • vegetables.
  • Place a khakara on a serving plate. Add the capsicum and broccoli on top. Add few spoons of chopped tomatoes and sliced onions.
  • Sprinkle a good amount of oregano, red chilli flakes and other pizza seasonings you would like to add. Finally, sprinkle the grated cheese on the top and the Khakhra pizza is
  • ready.
  • Serve Khakra Vegetable Pizza as an after school snack to your kids or during your tea time parties.
