Twirly Whirly Pizza

The other day I was browsing for recipes when I came to know about Nupur's MBP:Less is more.Actually Coffee is the brain behind this MBP(Monthly Blog Patrol) and this time Nupur is hosting it. These days I am always trying out someone or other's recipe that I thought it was perfect for me.That was until I read the rules. But I decided to give it a try and thus began the great search for a recipe with 5 or less ingredients.I came across Twirly Whirly Pizza(click here for original recipe) in one of my favourite blogger Madhuram's . I am a vegetarian and do not use eggs as well. So I was delighted to find another blogger with the same mindset.

This is a very easy recipe and is my first attempt in making a pizza.I did not get pastry dough. But I made mine using Betty Crocker Pizza Crust Mix.I did not have Pizza sauce so I used Tomato sauce and also added a pinch of oregano to it. Here goes my recipe.


1)Pizza dough:

Betty crocker Pizza crust mix :1 pkt
Hot water - 1/2 cup

Make a Pizza crust as per the instructions given on the packet

2)Tomato sauce -1/2 cup
3)oregano -1 pinch

Mix the sauce and oregano together
You can use a pizza sauce instead of this sauce.If you have no oregano you can even add red chilli flakes/pepper as well.

4)baby spinach leaves-1/2cup or 20-25 leaves
5)shredded pizza cheese blend- 1/2cup

Total 5 ingredients and a meal is ready.


Preheat the oven to 450 F.
Make a pizza crust.Press this dough into a circle on a greased pie pan. Spread the sauce and 3/4 cheese on the circle. Top with spinach leaves.Roll the dough from one end to the other to form a tube.Cut into 8 pieces. Arrange into a floral shape in the greased pie pan.

Bake for 12 to 17 minutes. Serve along with red chilli flakes/pepper/oregano for extra spiciness.

Sweatha I didn't know until now that you made this. I'm so sorry about such a late acknowledgment. Your version of tomato sauce also sounds good and I didn't know about the pizza crust mix until now.

Thank you. I "Stumbled Upon" this today and my 4 year old wanted to try it. Both he and his 22 month old sister, as well as hubby and I, loved it!
