Mixveg Khakra Pizza

Today, I planned Pav Bhaji for Dinner and did all the preparation for it-  Boiled the potatoes and vegetables, etc.. At last moment I came to know that I didn't have pav bhaji masala, garam masala and moreover I didn't get the Pav (bread). So I dropped Pav Bhaji plan and decided to make I prepared stuffing for paratha using  boiled vegetables (Aloo, cabbage, cauliflower, peas and carrot). Then I noticed that I have 4-5 chapaties left so thought to make wrap from chapatti and stuffing. And next moment a thought came in my mind to try something else out of this and what can be the better option other than Pizza for Dinner! 

I always keep cheese in my refrigerator so I finally made Pizza from this chapatti and vegetable stuffing. That made our dinner more delicious and enjoyable. And my daughter just loved it!! I know She will be going to demand for this pizza every day now onwards..

  • 4-5 Chapaties / tortilla
For Vegetable topping
  • 1 tablespoon oil
  • 1/4 cup chopped onion
  • 1 tablespoon chopped green chili
  • 1 teaspoon grated ginger
  • 2 teaspoon minced garlic
  • 2-3 boiled potatoes grated
  • 1/4 cup Peas
  • 1 small carrot shredded
  • 1/4 cup chopped cabbage
  • 1/4 cup chopped cauliflower
  • 1/2 teaspoon turmeric powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon garam masala (I didn't add)
  • salt to taste
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice (or to taste)
  • 1 tablespoon Cilantro

For batter Topping
  • 1/2 cup Besan (gram flour)
  • a pinch of turmeric powder
  • salt to taste
  • Oil for cooking
Pizza topping
  • Tomato sauce (Pizza Sauce)
  • Mozzarella shredded cheese
  • vegetable and fruits of your choice for topping 

  1. Bring 1/2 cup water to boil in a pan, add shredded carrot, peas, chopped cabbage and cauliflower and boil them for 4-5 minutes. Strain the water from them, squeeze all water and save that water for later use and keep aside boiled vegetable.
  2. Heat the oil, sauté onion in that for 1-2 minutes. Then add green chili, grated ginger and minced garlic to it and again sauté for 1 minute.
  3. Now add Grated boiled potato and boiled vegetable to it and mix well.
  4. Add turmeric powder, salt , garam masala , lemon juice and cilantro, mix well and sauté it for 2 minutes. And your vegetable topping is ready.
  5. Next in a bowl, take besan ( gram flour), saved water, salt and turmeric and mix well to make a running thick paste (consistency as dosa batter).
  6. Heat the nonstick skillet on low flame and drizzle some oil drops on it.
  7. Now take one chapatti, spread thick layer of vegetable mixture on it equally and then spread layer of besan paste on top of vegetable mixture layer.
  8. Drop this Pizza base on skillet as chapatti should be upside and Besan paste side should be downside.
  9. Cook on low heat for 1-2 minutes or cook until besan side is golden browned on the bottom (you can see by lifting up a corner with a fork/spatula). Then Brush the top of the chapati with oil and using a thin spatula, loosen pizza and flip it over.
  10. Immediately spread the tomato sauce or pizza sauce onto the base followed by cheese. Then add the toppings of your choice (green, yellow and red peppers, onions, pineapples, tomatoes, etc.) Top with additional mozzarella cheese. Cook on low flame until cheese is bubbling and chapati turns into crisp khakra - about 1-2 minutes.
  11. Remove the pizza and transfer to a cutting board. Cut into slices and serve immediately.
  • Eat this pizza immediately as Pizza base that means khakra may not be crisp after some time. (within 30 minutes)
  • You can also make this pizza by using only potato instead of mix vegetable that will save your time and also tastes more delicious.
