  • In a bowl take yeast and sugar. Dissolve it with lukewarm water and let it rest for 10 min or until yeast froths.
  • In a large mixing bowl, take flour and salt. Add activated yeast solution to it and start kneading the dough by adding little water at a time.
  • Add 1 tablespoon of oil to the dough and continue to knead.
  • After 10 minutes of kneading you will get soft, smooth, elastic and non-sticky dough.
  • Place the kneaded dough in a greased bowl and cover it with cling wrap. Let the dough rest until it doubles in volume.
  • Once dough doubles in volume, take it out on a lightly floured surface and punch it to release the air.
  • Divide the dough into equal sized small portions.
  • To assemble the bread, we need grated cheese, pizza sauce, mixed herbs and melted butter.
  • Now dip each dough ball into butter and start arranging in the pan.
  • Apply a layer of pizza sauce followed by a layer of cheese. Sprinkle mixed herbs.
  • Cover it with cling wrap and let it rest until it doubles.
  • Meanwhile preheat the oven at 200 °C.
  • Bake the bread in a preheated oven at 200 °C for 30 minutes
  • Once baked, take the bread out from the oven. Demould it.


  1. For this recipe, you can use 6 gm of dry yeast or 4 gm of Instant/ Active dry yeast.
  2. Amount of cheese and pizza sauce depends upon personal choice.
  3. Don’t add recommended water amount in one go. Add little at a time.
  4. While baking, use both coils (bottom as well as top).
  5. I made this recipe with 75% wheat flour. In case you want to try with 100% wheat then you need to add 2 tbs water extra.
  6. Keep the dough at some warm and dry place for rise.
