Pizza Buns...

Pizza buns are a perfect evening snack or after-school snack. Pizzas are our favourite.... yes all four of ours :) We love it any time. My kids love to have pizza night on Fridays and that too every Friday. I dont make it every Friday but we sure end making almost every alternate Friday night. Wow... its such a wonderful way to spend time together making pizzas... ;) I dint say that now but my kids feel so and say so

Once the basics of dough making is into your mind... you can go wild with your imaginations. I am not too much into making different kinds of breads or bakes though I would love to. We use the basic pizza dough recipe and get to make breads and buns and few others 

It involves very little effort to make pizza dough but the end results are so good. I make buns using the same dough for an after-school snack sometimes and well they are always a hit :)

Serves... 3 ppl
Serve option... Hot

This is what u'll need....

Pizza dough

Maida / All-purpose flour - 2 cups
Whole wheat flour / Atta - 1 cup
Oregano seasoning - 1 tspn
Sugar - 1 tbspn
Yeast - 2 tspn
Oil - 1 tbspn+few drops
Salt to taste

Onion - 1/3 cup
Green capsicum chopped - 1/3 cup
Red capsicum chopped - 2 tbspn
Scrambled Paneer - from half litre milk - Recipe here
Shredded Cheese- 1/4 cup
Chilli Flakes - 1 tspn
Oregano seasoning - 1 tbspn
Tomato ketchup - 1 tbpsn
Oil - 1 tbspn
Salt to taste

Here is the stir....

  • Take a wide-mouthed bowl and add all-purpose flour / maida and whole wheat flour / atta to it

  • Add a teaspoon or more of oregano seasoning to it. This is purely optional. We like a little spice in the bread too 
  • Take half a cup of lukewarm water. Sprinkle yeast to it. Give it a good stir and let it rest for 10-15 mins. The mixture will turn frothy. For detailed instructions follow the step-by-step instructions here -> How to Proof Yeast

  • Make sure you use lukewarm water as very hot water kills the yeast and cold water doesnt activate the yeast
  • Add a spoon of oil to the flour
  • Pour the frothy yeast mixture into the flour and start mixing it. It will be very sticky at the start. Keep kneading and everything will start coming together to form a dough. Knead for at least 8-10 minutes

  • When the kneading is done form the dough into the shape of a ball. Apply a few drops of oil to to it and place in a greased bowl 

  • Cover it with a muslin cloth and let it rest 40-45 minutes or until the dough doubles in size
  • Meanwhile heat oil in a pan. Add chopped onions to it

        • Add chopped green capsicum

        • Add chopped red capsicum
        • Make paneer from half litre milk. No need to make cubes as its not gonna taste any different. If you need to know how to make paneer follow the recipe link here
        • Add paneer to the pan
        • Sprinkle red chilli flakes and oregano seasoning
        • Toss it all round. Check for seasoning and add needed salt
        • Stir it around for couple of minutes. Dont sweat it too much. It tastes best when the veggies have a little crunch in them
        • Let it cool down completely
        • Add shredded cheese

        • Add a tablespoon of ketchup and stir it. The stuffing is ready for the buns
        • Once the dough has risen, pinch a little and roll it out into a small circle. Place a tablespoon of filling in the middle and pull all the sides together and pinch it to seal
        • Roll it around between your fingers and when shaped well, place seam side down in the baking tray. Do the same with rest of the dough
        • Let the buns rest for another 40 mins for the second rise
        • Brush them with milk and keep ready for baking
        • Preheat oven to 180 degrees. Bake the buns for 12-15 minutes or until the crust turns slightly golden

                                      • Dont overcook the veggies
                                      • Brushing milk will give a beautiful brown colour on top of the buns
                                      • Adjust spice to suit your taste
