  • 2 teaspoons active dry yeast    
  • 1 teaspoon Saffola oil    
  • 1 teaspoon salt    
  • a teaspoon of honey    
  • 1 cup warm water    

 
For the Roasted Vegetable Pizza Topping

 

  • 2 cups tomato basil sauce or pizza sauce    
  • 100 grams of low fat mozzarella cheese, grated or in slices    
  • 200 grams of button mushrooms, quartered    
  • 40 grams Saffola peppy tomato oats

How to make Roasted Vegetable Pizza with Oat Flour Crust

For making Dough

 

  • In a large mixing bowl, combine the oats, flour, salt, sugar and yeast
  • Combine and mix the flour, salt, sugar, and the yeast in a medium sized bowl
  • Next add in the lukewarm water a little at a time to the flour and knead the dough. Add in the oil to the dough and knead to mix well
  • The dough will be very sticky after all ingredients are combined. Add in some additional wheat flour if required to make the dough smooth. Knead the dough for about 5 to 6 minutes
  • If you have a stand mixer you can use that as well to ease the process
  • Cover the dough and allow the dough to rest for about 2 hours until it rises
  • While the dough is close to its finish in the rising period, we will prepare the topping for the pizza
  • Heat oil over medium heat in pan; add the red bell pepper and onions and roast until they are tender and lightly browned
  • Add in the mushrooms and oats, stir fry on high heat until just a bit tender and all the water is absorbed by the oats

 

For making the Pizza

 

  • After the dough has risen, divide the dough into two halves to make two smaller pizzas or you can make it into a large pizza
  • The size of the pizza will depend on how thick or thin you roll it
  • Preheat the oven to 220 C
  • Dust the pizza pans with flour and some corn meal or semolina. This will prevent the dough from sticking to your pizza pan
  • Bake the crust for 5 to 7 minutes, and then take out of the oven. Layer the pizza first with the sauce, then the roasted vegetables and the cheese
  • Place the pizza back in the oven and bake until you notice the crust is beginning to brown and the cheese is bubbling
  • Once baked, remove the pizza from the oven and allow it to rest for a couple of minutes before slicing and serving. You can also optionally sprinkle some oregano or pizza seasoning and serve
