Pizza Buns

Who doesn’t love pizza!!! One time while making pizza I thought of making a pizza topping stuffed bun with the remaining dough. Turned out flavorful as expected. Just have to keep in mind not to stuff too much of pizza sauce as it can ooze out and make the bun soggy.
Maked 6-8 buns
Buns:
2 cups of All-purpose flour
dried crushed chillies
¼ teaspoon of crushed oregano (optional)
1 teaspoon salt
2 teaspoon of sugar
½  tablespoon of Quick-rise yeast
1 tablespoon of oil
Warm water for kneading

Filling:
1 cup of chopped bell (capsicum) peppers
1 cup corn kernels
¼ cup finely chopped ginger and cilantro 
1 ½ cup of grated cheese
1 cup pineapple chunks or titbits

Pizza Sauce:
1 tomato (boiled and peeled)
2 basil leaves (optional)
1 teaspoon: tamarind sauce
1 teaspoon ketchup
1 teaspoon chilli sauce
2 pieces of mango pickles
a pinch of dry oregano 
1 teaspoon sugar
1 teaspoon salt
1 tsp lemon juice

A drop soya sauce
1 teaspoon of chopped ginger
Blend all together with one tablespoon of water and cook on low heat for 5 minutes by continuously stirring them

1 tablespoon of almond Milk for brushing the Top

 

Process: Mix yeast, sugar, ½ cup warm water, 1/4 cup flour and oil. Whisk well and keep aside at a warm place. After 15 minutes you will see the mixture foaming little.

Add the salt, the herbs and remaining flour and knead into a soft dough. Use more water and oil if needed. Keep aside for another 40 minutes covered with a wet cloth under oven light.
Preheat the oven on 400F.
Once the dough has raised, take equal portions of dough, stuff equal portions of the filling ingredients and pizza sauce. Close all the end properly and make it into a round shape ball. Repeat the same for rest of the dough.

Place all of them on a parchment paper greased with little oil and brush the top with almond milk.
Keep it aside for another 15-20 minutes. After 20 minutes put them in the oven and let them bake for 15-20 minutes.

Remove them out and again brush little sauce and put some grated cheese on top and broil till cheese turns little golden brown. (This is optional if you want your buns more cheesy)
