Veg pizza with mushroom toppings

Pizza is a delicious item and probably tastes more delicious when prepared at home. Preparing pizzas at home is an easy affair.Mushroom is the source of protein and tastes delicious when applied with fast food. I had a challenge with a friend that home made pizzas are more delicious than commercially prepared ones.At least I was happy with the preparation. It's upto my readers who has to support the cause of home made fast foods.
Lets see the method of preparation.

Pizza bread,
Button mushrooms (medium sized ones to be purchased from the market), 
Onions ( 1 medium sized chopped finely),
Tomatoes ( 1 medium sized chopped finely),
Capsicum( 1 medium sized chopped)
Salt as per taste,
Mozzarella cheese ( 100gms.)

Procedure: Boil the button mushrooms. Care should be taken so that the mushrooms should be soft but should not break. After boiling for about 10 mins. strain the water and remove the mushrooms. Take little oil (1 teaspoon) in a frying pan. Add the button mushrooms, onions, capsicum and tomatoes in it. Roasting the ingredients will give a better flavor. Just toss for 3-4 minutes.Add 1 teaspoon of salt to it.  Take the pizza bread. Spread the toppings- mushroom, onion , tomatoes on it. Take the mozzarella cheese and shred it on the pizza with the help of a shredder. The cheese should be shredded evenly. Now take the pizza bread and put it in an oven. Bake it at 220 degrees for 5 minutes. Your pizza is ready . You will be bewildered by the smell of the cheese and veggies.

You can cut into piece and serve with soft drinks. So, in your child's next birthday party , you are sure to make ' mom made pizzas' instead of commercially prepared pizzas. Enjoy preparing dishes at home.
