  • Oven


  • teaspoons Active Dry Yeast
  • 1 tablespoon Sugar
  • 1 cup Water Lukewarm
  • 250 grams All Purpose Flour
  • 100 grams Whole Wheat Flour
  • 1 teaspoon Salt
  • 1 cup Chopped Vegetables
  • ¼ cup Olive Oil + extra for brushing
  • ¾ cup Marinara or Pizza Sauce
  • ½ cup Basil Leaves Lightly packed
  • ¾ cup Mozzarella Cheese Grated


  • Dissolve the yeast and sugar in water and keep aside for a few minutes till froth starts to develop on the surface.
  • In a large bowl, combine both the flours, salt and vegetables by hand till mixed.I used onions, capsicum, sun-dried tomatoes and olives.Add the yeast and water mixture and olive oil. Combine with a spoon, spatula or just use your hands like I did. The dough should be moist and slightly sticky. Add extra water by the teaspoon if required. While this does not require kneading like most breads, its good to mix for 3-4 minutes till all the ingredients are properly combined. I just transfer the dough to the counter and knead lightly for a couple of minutes.
  • Cover the dough with a cloth or cling film, and set aside in a warm, dark spot till it doubles in size. I usually place the dough inside my oven without switching it on.
  • Once the dough has doubled in size (it took mine about 40 minutes), transfer the dough to a baking sheet lined with greased parchment paper. Be careful not to deflate it completely.
  • Lightly stretch the dough till it forms a rectangle.
  • Spread a layer of marinara sauce, sprinkle with basil leaves and grated cheese.
  • Now mentally divide the dough into three parts. Flip the first part on the middle and then flip the third part on top of it, letter style.
  • Seal the edges and brush all over with olive oil.
  • Pre - heat your oven to 220 degree Celsius and bake for 35-40 minutes till golden brown.
