Well, if you have recently purchased a convection microwave oven then this is the first recipe that you should try out baking on it. In case you’re looking to buy one, here’s a well-researched buying guide on the best convection oven for home use.
We have tried to make the recipe very simple for a beginner to easily understand and grasp the concept of baking Pizzas in a microwave oven. Why are we still talking now? Let’s get started with our step-by-step recipe.
How to Bake Pizza in a Convection Microwave Oven?
To begin with the recipe, what’s the first thing that we need to do? Yes, you’re right, prepare the ingredients first. Here are all the ingredients that we are going to use to bake our own delicious pizza at home.
In case you miss out on something, you can try adding something else or even remove something from the ingredients as per your taste preference.
Ingredients You Will Need For Dough:
- Warm Water
- Dry Yeast
- Olive Oil
Ingredients You Will Need For Toppings:
- Pizza Sauce
- Red Chilli Flakes
- Mozarella Cheese
- Olive Oil
That’s all you will need to bake delicious vegetable pizza at home with this recipe. Please note that you may add or remove veggies as per your preference to make your own customized Pizza.
Since now you have all the ingredients collected, here’s the step-by-step recipe that you have to follow along.
Pizza Dough Preperation
Add Dry Yeast in around 30-50ml of warm water. Stir it well to make it completely dissolve in the warm water. Now add Maida, olive oil & white salt to the mixture.
This is all for your Pizza dough, now just do the kneading part to make the Pizza dough. Just like you do to prepare chapatis at home, keep adding some water and keep kneading to make soft Pizza dough.
Add half a tablespoon of greased oil into a bowl and roll your Pizza dough in it so it gets covered with the oil. Cover the bowl with a glass sheet and leave it for like an hour. It might take more than an hour for the fermentation process in the winters.
Pizza Base Rolling
Here comes my personal favorite part, take out the fermented Pizza dough and roll it to make a round-shaped Pizza dough just like chapatis. Make sure it is thick enough.
Now add some oil to your baking dish and place your rolled pizza based on it. Before you place it in the baking dish, make sure you make some small cuts using a knife or toothpick on the Pizza base. This is done so that the mozzarella cheese and our toppings go inside the base while baking.
Preheating the Oven
Before we start adding our Pizza toppings, let’s set our convection oven at a certain temperature before even placing our pizza in it. Preheating the oven results in better and more delicious baking results. If you have a good convection microwave oven, there would be a dedicated option for preheating the oven.
Add the Toppings
Here comes another very favorite part of mine. Start with topping your veggies on the Pizza base randomly here and there or you can even decorate the presence with your creative mind. After that, add the cheese part over it so it covers up all the veggies on the Pizza base.
You can even add the Pizza sauce before adding veggies and cheese. It would make the Dough taste much better after getting baked. Just top it up with all the ingredients you are left over with.
Baking Pizza in Convection Mode
As we already preheated our oven, your oven must have reached 200 degrees celsius temperature, that is the recommended temperature at which you must bake in an oven.
Before placing your Pizza inside the oven, make sure you are wearing microwave-safe gloves so you don’t get your hands burned. Just place it safely inside the oven and close the oven door.
Now set the temperature again to 200 degrees celsius and set the timer for about 20 minutes. That would result in a perfectly baked out and delicious Pizza at home.
Once the timer hits, simply plug out the convection microwave oven, take out your delicious Pizza and throw a pizza party at home with your Pizza. That was it for today, if you’re a new mom, keep following One Bored Mommy!
