Gujarati Dhokla Pizza Recipe is a fusion recipe. Khatta Dhokla batter is made with dahi, rice and dals, which is then fermented, and finally steamed. In this recipe I have added carrots, mint leaves and green chillies to the batter after fermentation. The result is a healthy soft spongy dhokla which makes a delicious base for a pizza.

Dhokla base is topped with a pizza sauce caramelized onions, corn, olives and topped with cheese. These ingredients are the classic pizza toppings. Gujarati Dhokla Pizza is then baked till the cheese melts and served hot.

They make a great appetizer to be served at any party. Try the Gujarati Dhokla Pizza and it will surely become yours and your family favourite.

How to make Gujarati Dhokla Pizza Recipe

  1. To begin making the Gujarati Dhokla Pizza Recipe we will first make the Khatta Dhokla.

  2. Soak rice, urad dal and chana dal all together for about 5 to 6 hours.

  3. After six hours, add the soaked rice and dal along with curd, 1 green chilli, ginger and salt to taste into a mixer grinder and grind to a smooth batter. Ferment the batter for 8 hours to overnight.

  4. The curd actually helps in making the batter a little sour.

  5. After the batter has fermented, add the grated carrots, green chillies, mint leaves and mix well to combine.

  10. Preheat the oven to 220 degrees celsius for 10 minutes.

  11. Now check if the Khatta Dhokla is cooked. You will know its done, when you put a tester like a knife and it comes out clean.

  13. Smear the dhokla with the tomato basil sauce, top it with the caramelized onions and capsicum and sprinkle some sweet corn and black olives around. Top the Dhokla with some grated cheese and bake for 8 to 10 minutes till the cheese melts.
