Mix 2 cups of AP/Maida flour ,one tsp of salt,half tsp of sugar and 1 tsp of inactive yeast

Knead them well and rest it for 30 minutes

Dough gets double in size,knead them again

Half the dough,dust some flour and roll it into thin sheet.If u want thick layer,then fork it

Layer it with pizza sauce,anything,and loads of mozzarella cheese

Cheesy Bites Pizza

Make a thin layer of pizza as usual

Roll the pizza cutter for one inch at the ends

Add the pizza seasoning to the cheese and mix well

Spread the sauce and anything u want it on top

Spread the seasoned cheese on edges,joining two layers

Pull and twist the side layer and cover it

Seal the edges..the cheese wont comes out

Bake until the cheese melts well..
