Uthappam Pizza |Desi Pizza with step by step pictures

Ever since I was breaking my head for a simple pizza recipe, that is for the past two days, one pizza that kept popping up in my mind was this desi version of pizza. So I had make it .But before I did, I asked the kids if they were ready to try out another modified pizza.

They had just finished the dessert pizza and so I was wondering if they would like a savory one. They seemed to be pretty excited at the prospect of another pizza!

The duo kept tailing me all through the cooking process and the photo shoot had to be done very quickly.So I just clicked a couple of pics and then had to hand out the plate to them. And I had to hurry back to the kitchen to make another one!Yes, another hit recipe! Its easy to make and there is no fuss around it.

For the desi touch I sprinkled some kobbari pudi [a dry coconut lentil spice mix] and it really did the trick. You can also use the regularย idli milagai podi and! Even the kids loved this touch and they were going gaga over it!

This desi pizza is my third dish for Blogging Marathon # 82,Week 3, Day 3, with the theme – Pizzas

  1. hahahah,…if we are crazy, our kids are even more crazy for pizzas..I can just imagine this being a hit with my kids as well…I had made this many years ago when Konda was very small and boys didn’t even eat…so I must try this now for the boys as well..:)..very lovely twist PJ..I surely enjoyed all versions..sadly I couldn’t complete my theme..

  2. I love this fusion pizza with uttapham base. As food bloggers, we can create a base with almost anything and as kids, they would eat it as long as the name says pizza.
