Making pizza at home is not as hard as I thought. Home-made pizza is quick and easy recipes for fast, yet delicious weekday meals. Homemade pizza sauce is as easy as simply blending tomatoes, garlic, salt, pepper, olive oil, basil or oregano. I make sauce with fresh tomatoes. Fresh tomatoes drain lot of water. For this reason I cook till water is cooked off. You can make sauce in advance and store for 10 days in refrigerator. Raised dough can be made make up to 2 days before. When week is busy, time is short and you want to make home-cooked meals for yourself or family, pizza is the one. Making your own pizza gives you so many choices. Whole-wheat crust, vegetable crust, your favorite fresh toppings, high quality cheese, vegan cheese, home-made sauce, a variety of sauces and much more. You’ll start wondering why you order expensive, takeout meals and will realize that making healthy home-made meals for yourself and your family is, in-fact a great priceless experience!
Can you tell whats wrong with this dish? Good for me if you haven’t noticed. Go to post to know. The point I am making about this photo is that, don’t be intimidated by dishes not looking great when you cook. When I was a kid, I was like that. If my mom’s dish doesn’t appeal me, I wouldn’t eat. As I grew, I understood that appeal is just about eye entertainment. If you are an amateur cook, take baby steps. Not worry about starting to cook and trying out new recipes.

As adults, they return to bring the family recipes to life and catch up on everything that’s happened between visits. To cook Indian food is a window into what it is to be Indian, and I intend to give each of my readers that authentic experience.
