There are strong reasons why you are looking for a killer tawa pizza recipe. One, your oven isn’t functioning and you’re desperately craving homemade pizza. Two, you are a no-bake enthusiast, who stays away from (melamine, aluminum, and Teflon-coated) cutlery that leach toxins into hot food. Three, you’re a star chef-in-the-making! Today, there are no-bake versions for practically all dishes, and pizza is no exception! In this recipe, we will be replacing the oven with a tawa–a traditional Indian pan made of cast-iron, conventionally used to toast pancakes and breads.
- Although this recipe uses refined flour, the fact that tawa pizza is homemade, makes it healthier than pizza bought from fast-food joints.
- Using cast iron cutlery instead of non-stick pans also makes this recipe free of toxins.
- Nothing beats homemade tomato ketchup or pizza sauce to go with the toppings. Anything homemade is much safer than preservative-laden foods from a takeout!
How to make Tawa Pizza
Note: Some brands of yeast might take longer to ferment. To identify if yeast has proofed well, look for bubbly, frothy, and a creamy texture in your culture.
Note: depending on the nature of yeast you use, your dough can take a longer or shorter time to rise. Risen dough doubles in size.
