How to make Whole Wheat & Ragi Crust Skillet Pizza Recipe Topped With Roasted Zucchini & Olives

  1. To begin making the Whole Wheat & Ragi Crust Skillet Pizza Topped With Roasted Zucchini & Olives, we will first make the dough for the pizza. 

  2. To make the dough, add all the ingredients into a large mixing bowl or a the bowl of a stand mixer. Stir to combine the dry ingredients well. Add warm water little at a time to knead to make a soft and smooth dough. Add olive oil to the dough and knead again for 3 to 4 minutes until very soft and smooth. 

  3. Cover the dough and allow it to rest and rise for about 2 hours until doubled. 

  4. When you are ready to make the pizza, we can get the topping ready for it. Make the tomato basil pasta sauce according to the recipe in the link and keep aside.

  5. Heat olive in a wok; add the garlic and the zucchini and carrots, sprinkle some salt and black pepper and stir-fry until the vegetables have lightly cooked. You want the vegetable to be firm and yet not raw.

  6. The next step is to make the skillet pizza with the prepared ragi crust dough and the roasted vegetables along with tomato basil sauce.

  7. Heat a cast iron skillet or a regular skillet and grease the skillet well with olive oil. 

  8. Keep some dry flour for dusting by the side in a small plate. Divide the pizza dough into 4 equal portions. 

  9. Roll out each pizza dough into thick rounds by dusting it in flour. Place the rolled out pizza dough on the skillet and cook partially on both sides, by flipping it around a couple of times.

  10. Once both sides are partially cooked, brush some oil on the top side of the pizza, spread the tomato basil pasta sauce, scatter the roasted zucchini and carrot and sprinkle the cheese.

  11. Cover the skillet Ragi pizza with a lid and allow the pizza to cook through and the cheese to melt. 

  12. Once the cheese begins to start melting, open the lid and cook for about a minute more. You will notice the bottom of the pizza and the sides are becoming slightly crisp and brown. The Ragi Crust Skillet Pizzas are now ready. 

  13. Remove from the skillet and place it on a platter. Proceed the same way with the remaining pizza dough and toppings.

  14. Serve Whole Wheat & Ragi Crust Skillet Pizza Recipe Topped With Roasted Zucchini & Olives along with Spaghetti with Pesto & Parmesan for a dinner party.
