Tips & Tricks

If you like, you can only use one chapati to make the pizza. Just skip the second point mentioned above and do the preparations accordingly. I prepare my chapati pizza with 2 stale chapatis as it thickens the base and there is a less chance that the base would burn.

You can also choose to cut the veggies in any way you like and don’t have to dice them. I do it because I like big chunks of veggies on my pizza and the crunch sound it makes when you bite the veggies is just amazing.

You can pour some ornaments like oregano and chili fakes if you like an extra punch of flavor too.

Things to Keep in Mind

Chapati pizza can only be made using stale chapatis. If you make the pizza with fresh chapati, the base will get soft and it won’t be sturdy to hold on to the toppings.

Also heat up the pan beforehand for 2 mins on medium flame and when placing the pizza in the pan, keep it on low flame to prevent the base from getting burnt.

Bread can also be an alternative to chapati when making this recipe.

We may not know the origin of chapati pizza, but this dish has become so popular that both kids and adults enjoy this. And the best part of it all is that you can make it with leftovers.
