Pizza Buns


For the Buns:
All purpose flour 1 -1/2 cup
Milk 1/2 cup
olive oil 1/8 cup
Salt 1 tsp
Sugar 1-1/2 tsp
Active dry yeast 1 tblsp

For the filling:
Capsicum,chopped 1
Onion 1
Tomato(optional) 1
Grated mozzarella cheese 1/2 cup
Pizza sauce or any tomato based sauce 2 tsp
Italian herb of ur choice 1 tsp
Red chilli flakes 1 tsp
Salt to taste
oil 2 tsp


Heat milk until lukewarm,dissolve sugar and yeast. Let it rest for 10 minutes. After 10 minutes the mixture would have been raised to frothy, proving that the yeast is active. If not,your yeast is not active and use active yeast.

Meanwhile, take flour in a large bow and make a dent in the middle. Add salt, oil and the yeast mixture in the dent and make a smooth pliable dough. If sticky sprinkle little more flour,if too dry sprinkle some water. The dough should be smooth and pliable.

Let it rest for 1 hour, wrap the bowl with cling wrap. After an hour the dough should have been raised. Punch it down and knead to make it smooth.

Make equal sized balls and arrange in a greased baking tray.Meanwhile prepare the filling. Heat a pan with oil and fry capsicums,tomato and onion for just a minute. Cool down and add sauce, cheese, Italian seasoning, salt and chilli flakes . Mix well.

Flatten the prepared dough balls and keep a small lemon sized ball of the filling.

Pinch the edges towards centre to cover the filling as shown in the picture. Arrange in the baking tray with the sealed side down. Make sure you have sealed properly,otherwise, the cheese will ooze out.

Pre heat the oven to 190o C and till then brush the buns with milk little and bake it for 18-20 minutes or until the buns start becoming golden brown on the top. Brush generously with butter after done.
