Pizza Dosa


Dosa is crepes made with fermented lentils and rice and is a common breakfast food from South India. It is famous all over India and is even eaten as street food too. Several types of dosa are made traditionally but the regular dosa batter can be used to make fusion dosas too which tastes quite different to the traditional ones and are a great inclusion in your kitchen. This glute-free dish is definitely a very healthy alternative to the regular pizzas.
I make this pizza dosa with freshly made pizza sauce with fresh herbs; however, store-bought pizza sauce can be used too. The dosa is rolled slightly thick similar to Mysore Masala Dosa and then butter, pizza sauce, toppings and cheese are added. This dosa tastes great on its own and does not need any accompaniments while serving. Remember to serve them immediately while they are crispy and crunchy else they would turn soggy.
Pizza is something that is loved by kids and adults alike. Make this healthy alternative to regular pizza for some guilt-free indulgence.

2. Take a ladle full of batter and pour it in the centre of the tawa. Using the ladle or a small bowl gently spread the batter in a circular motion. Don’t spread the batter very thin
3. Add butter onto the dosa
4. Add pizza sauce and spread it evenly
5. Add the toppings followed by cheese
6. Let the cheese melt (takes about a minute)
7. Carefully lift the dosa from the tawa and serve hot
