Veg ball pizza – Homemade Veggie Carrot Ball Pizza
Veg ball pizza is a handmade, baked flat bread topped with veggies, onions, tomatoes, carrot balls & loads of cheese. Veg balls are prepared by cooking shredded carrots with spices and shaped in the form of balls. Veg ball pizza is the best option whenever you get a sudden craving for pizza. The white sauce used is very easy to prepare as it just requires the ingredients you have in your pantry.
Watching all those pizza commercials keeps on inducing my cravings for pizza. 😀 So, I thought I would prepare Pizza again at home and noticed that I did not have enough tomatoes to make the sauce. So, I decided to switch it to simple white sauce which we use to make pastas. It’s much easier to prepare & it tastes better too. If you want to stick to the usual Red Tomato Sauce Pizza – Please check out red sauce preparation in our Veg Paneer Pizza Recipe.
They were showing Meatball Pizza in the commercial, but as I am a vegetarian, I had to replace it with some veggies. As I am out of fancy toppings and left with no option other than carrots (which I had reserved for making my favorite carrot ball gravy for the next day) I thought of making carrots balls as toppings for pizza. The sweetness of carrots with a hint from spices matches wells with the white pizza sauce. Tempting right???? Ok.
