Vj is a fan of thin crust pizza. He likes it for its crispiness, lightness. Both texture wise, calorie wise, its better. I have never thought of trying at home when ever I make pizza for Aj, I make the regular pizza. I saw this recipe in The kitchn and tried, for the first time, I made it bit thick. Vj asked me to try again and make it thinner than that. I disagreed with him first, but when I tried the second time rolling thinner, it came out perfectlyBlushing. Unlike the regular pizza, thin crust pizza need not any fermentation time, you can make it instantly. And less maida / cheese you in-take when compared to the regular ones.

Veggie thin crust pizza recipe

Recipe Cuisine: International  |  Recipe Category: Dinner
Prep Time: 10 mins    |  Cook time: 13 mins    Serves: 2


All purpose flour/ Maida/ plain flour - 1 cup

Active dry yeast - 1/2 tsp

water - 1/4 cup + 2 tblsp

Salt - 3/4 tsp

Grated mozzarella cheese - 1/2 cup

Pizza or pasta sauce - 1 tblsp

Cubed capsicum, onion, tomato (deseeded) - 3/4 cup

Italian herb seasoning - 1/2 tsp

Chilli flakes - To serve


  1. Pre heat the oven to 230 deg. C or how much ever is the maximum temperature your oven has, that much. Keep the cheese outside for defrosting it. Mean while you can prepare the dough for base. Make the water lukewarm, dissolve yeast in it.
  2. 1-dissolve-yeast
  3. Transfer to a mixing bowl, add salt, flour to it and make a loose dough.
  4. 2-make-dough
  5. Knead for 10  minutes to a smooth dough. If its sticky, you can sprinkle some more flour and knead, but it should be a loose and soft dough. Keep it covered. In a counter top, cut a baking sheet to square, place the dough over it, roll thinly like a roti.
  6. 3-smooth
  7. Since we are rolling over a paper, we will be able to roll it thinly. If it sticks to the rolling pin, dust with flour.Using a back of a broad spoon, spread the pizza sauce.
  8. 4-roll
  9. Spread the chopped veggies, sprinkle cheese over it. Sprinkle the italian seasoning. Transfer by pulling this paper over a baking tray carefully.
  10. 5-slide
  11. Bake for 5 minutes. Since it will be half done, you will be now able to transfer the pizza from paper to the baking tray.Again continue baking for 8 minutes or until the sides becomes golden and cheese becomes golden in colour.
  12. 6-bake
  13. Cool over a wire rack, cut and serve hot with chilli flakes.
  14. 7-slice


    • The water must be just lukewarm for the yeast to get properly dissolved, if its too hot, it may end up forming lumps instead getting dissolved.
    • The baking time may vary according to the oven, so keep an eye after 10 mins.
