Stove Top Pizza | Skillet Pizza

Whenever I plan to make pizza, I start my preparation at least 4 hours before because of its resting time and baking time. But this recipe requires only less than 20 minutes.
No Resting time, No yeast, No water for dough making. The crust is crispy bottom, soft and fluffy in texture. I added spinach, mushroom, onion and bacon for toppings. It taste so good and we liked this quick pizza recipe. Try it out, I hope you ll like it as much as we did.
Dough preparation : 3 minutes
Assembling pizza : 3 minutes
Cooking time : 10 to 12 minutes
Cooking method: Stove top
Yield : 8 medium slices

For Pizza Dough
1 cup All purpose flour
1 large Egg
3 tbsp Curd/Yogurt
1 tsp Baking powder
2 tbsp oil for dough + 1 tbsp for greasing the pan
1/2 tsp Salt
For Toppings
1/2 cup sliced Mushroom
1/3 cup chopped onions
1/2 cup chopped Spinach
1/2 cup roughly chopped cooked Bacon
4 tbsp Pizza sauce
3/4 cup Mozzarella cheese
For Cooking Pizza:
Heavy bottom pan with its lid ( I used 8 inch pan)

Method for making Pizza dough

In a mixing bowl, add egg,curd, oil and salt. Mix with spoon/spatula until all well combined.
Sift flour and baking powder, mix and knead without any lumps. ( Add extra oil and knead, if its sticky)

Assemble toppings

Take heavy bottom pan and grease it with some oil.
spread the dough evenly on the pan.
Spoon some pizza sauce on dough and spread it with spoon.
Add on all the toppings. First I have added onions, then spinach, then mushroom, then bacon.
Finally sprinkle mozzarella cheese on it.

Cook on stove Top

Place the pan on stove, set the flame to high.
Close the pan with its lid.
Cook for 2 minutes in high flame.
Then reduce the flame to medium and cook for 8 more minutes.
After 8 minutes, open the lid and check the top and base of the pizza.
The base should be turn to golden brown color.
If its not done, cook for 2 more minutes with closed lid.
Once it cooked, remove the pan from flame. Tilt the pan to 45 degree, the pizza will slide to the plate easily.
Sprinkle some chili flakes on pizza and slice it up and serve.
