Homemade Chicken Sausage Pizza


Who doesn't love pizza and that too if it is homemade, then everybody in the house will have more slices without thinking about the calories. I never thought that I would be preparing pizza from scratch. But once I tried making at home, we will never have  one from outside.
Assembling the pizza
We can have our desired toppings. We can make the sauce before hand and refrigerate and we can use when making pizza or pasta.

Ready to get baked....
The process of making pizza looks big and tiring, but once started it will be easy and simple. You can use your own assorted veggies. I made the pizza base using maida, we can also make this using wheat flour, but it will be little dense. We can also use dried or fresh herbs like thyme, dill or rosemary of choice for the sauce,whatever it is, this will taste amazing. Just try this out once and you will find it easy and will try to make often.


For veg pizza, add your favorite veggies. Instead of sausages you can also add fried chicken pieces. Pizza base and the sauce will remain the same for all the pizza, only the toppings differ.
As Valentine’s day is coming, give a surprise pizza lunch or dinner to your loved ones and see the magic….
