Pizza recipe using whole wheat flour (How to make atta pizza recipe)

I have already shared the regular veg pizza recipe where the base is made from all purpose flour aka maida. This time I am sharing whole wheat pizza dough.

This recipe will give light, fluffy pizza crust with crisp edges. We are brushing the crust with olive oil before baking which helps to get nice golden color and also helps to crisp up.

For the pizza sauce, here I have used my homemade tomato pizza sauce which is made from fresh tomatoes. While the dough is rising, make the sauce. This will take only 20 minutes.

For the pizza toppings I have used onion, jalapeno peppers and roasted red peppers. For roasted peppers, I took the red pepper and roasted on open flame till the skin is charred and black all around similar to this roasted red pepper soup. Once cooled, I removed the skin, stem and seeds. Then sliced into long strips.

Other alternatives for toppings are corn, capsicum, olives, mushrooms etc.
