Super simple & quick pizza

For those of you who know Tamil, I am in the ‘வெச்சா குடுமி சரைச்சா மொட்டை’ state. Have been trying out multiple new recipes and I must say – everything has been turning out quite well. That too, for a first attempt. My niece Tasha (you will see this name every now and then am sure) came home this weekend to spend sometime with us. When I got married and moved to Dubai, Tasha was a year old and she has been an integral part of my life ever since. I love her a lot & I love spending time with her. After having Adya, I haven’t been able to spend much time with her as before & whenever we meet, I always try and do something with her that she would enjoy. This weekend, thought will make pizza for her. I have made pizza a few times before and they have come out well but this time I came across a super simple way of making the dough (again, thanks to my fav show The Kitchen) and I wanted to try it. And man, it was extremely simple to make, the dough required no resting time, the pizza rose quite well & to me, the most important point – it requires items that will generally be available in your pantry!! No yeast, nothing. Tasha was my sous-chef yesterday and she was such a darling! We had a great time making this awesome & super easy pizza. Below are a few pics of our fun evening!
