This month in our baking group " We Knead To Bake " we were asked to bake any kind of pizza with a little individual touch. I have always been amazed at the variety of dessert pizzas we get in Brazil. So I thought why not try something like that with Indian flavours. Here is the dessert pizza made with gajar ka halwa, mawa and dates. It turned out to be a hit.The same could be made in small pizza cups too for serving individually in the parties.
For the Pizza dough:
APF / maida ..... 1 and 1/2 cups
Yeast ............ ... 1 tsp
Butter ........... 1 tbsp
Salt ..... 1/8 tsp
Sugar .... 1 tbsp
Water .. 1/4 cup plus milk as needed
1. Take 1/4 cup warm water and add sugar. Sprinkle yeast on top and place in in a warm place for a few minutes until frothy.
2. Mix salt and butter in the flour and knead adding the frothy yeast and a little milk as needed. (about 3-4 tbsps is what I added )
3. Knead inro a smooth dough and place it in a bowl. Cover it with a foil or cling film and let it rise until double.
Gajar Ka Halwa :

1. Now roll out the pizza dough and place in in a greased baking tray.
2. Spread the gajar ka halwa on it .

5. Bake it in a pre-heated oven at 250 degrees for about 22 - 25 minutes.
