Pizza Buns

Who doesn’t love pizza!!! And everyone of us love to experiment with different variations. One time while trying 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.
2 cups of All-purpose flour
2 dried crushed chillies
¼ teaspoon of crushed oregano (optional)
1 teaspoon salt
2 teaspoon of sugar
1 tablespoon of Quick-rise yeast
1 tablespoon of oil
Warm water for kneading

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 cup tomato (boiled and peeled)
2 basil leaves (optional)
1 teaspoon: tamarind sauce, ketchup, chilli sauce, mango pickles, dry oregano herb, sugar, and salt
¼ teaspoon apple cider vinegar or 1 teaspoon lemon juice and soya sauce
1 teaspoon of chopped ginger
Blend all together with one tablespoon of water and cook on low heat for 5 minutes by continuous stirring

1 tablespoon of Milk for brushing the Top

Please check (Measurements)

Process: Mix yeast, sugar, 1/2 cup warm water, 1/4 cup flour and oil. Whisk well and keep aside at a warm place. After half an hour you will see the batter with bubbles.

Add the salt , the herbs and remaining flour and knead in a soft dough. Use more water and oil if needed. Keep aside for another 30 minutes covered with a wet cloth under oven light.
Preheat the oven on 350F. Once the dough has risen take equal portions of dough, stuff with the filling with pizza sauce made. 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 coconut milk or regular milk.
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 soft and cheesy)
