For the base
Source: Arushi Jain
3 1/2 cup flour
(Or use a combination of atta & maida in the ratio 1:1)
2 tsp dry yeast
1 1/2 tsp salt
1 tbsp sugar
3 tbsp oil/butter
warm water to make dough Make a smooth but slightly loose dough of above ingredients. Cover and keep in warm place for atleast 1 1/2 to 2 hours till it doubles in size and use.

For the tomatoes
Slice cherry tomatoes thin, place on paper towel for 20 min to soak excess juices…ready to use.

For assembly
Roll out dough thinly. Spread a liberal layer of basil pesto, sprinkle with grated mozzarella cheese. I sometimes like to use a combination of feta/ goat cheese and mozzarella for this one. Top with slices of cherry tomatoes and peppers. You can also use mushrooms, olives or any other toppings you like. Bake in preheated oven at 450f in lowest rack for 13-14 minutes…. Serve immediately!
