How to make Pizza in Train

We all love to eat and make Pizza. It is easier to prepare at home but what about cooking it on the go, for example inside the train, sitting on your berth. Today you will learn how to make a pizza topped by your favorite topping and enjoy it while it is hot. 

Preparation for making pizza meal

First and foremost you need to understand that in order to create pizza inside a moving train you'll need a different sort of preparation that you usually do for baking it. Here is the list of things required

A portable microwave oven which gets operated by using batteries:This is an important requirement since not all trains have electric switches inside the compartments to support the microwave oven operated by electrical supply.

An unbaked Pizza Crust:This is the flat bread which will serve as the base for our Pizza.

A cup of grated cheese:This will bind the toppings to base and will give good aroma so that it is inevitable to eat pizza fast.

Toppings:There are many choices to top pizza. The most popular ones are Chicken, Mushroom, Chopped Onions, Olives, Sausage, Ham, Pineapple, Basil, Roasted Garlic, and many others. Depending upon how much yo can eat, you can even try and make variety of pizza's.

Cooking Pizza Step by Step from Scratch

Step 1:Preheat oven to 450 degree centigrade. But before that make sure it is neat and clean. Also, since you are warming it in train, make sure that other passengers and railway staff has no objection about you making the Italy originated dish. If they object tell them that you'll be making one for them as well. Most times they will allow you to make a dish.

Step 2:Take out the fresh crust of Pizza out of the packet and spread some olive oil using the brush. Make sure that train is not shaking too much while you are doing this. Better you do this when train is halting at a station which has a long enough stoppage time.

Step 3:Now is the time to spread some sauce over the crust. You can use a thick tomato sauce, a green chili sauce, soyabean sauce, or any other sauce, depending upon what you like. The only thing to make sure is that it is thick enough to hold the toppings which we are going to add in next step.

Step 4:Spread the toppings over the sauce uniformly. If you are adding green vegetables make sure that they do not contain too much water as it will soften the crust and you won't be able to enjoy the crunchiness of real pizza.

Step 6:Sprinkle the grated cheese, like mozzarella cheese, and make sure that it covers the entire spread of toppings.

Step 5:It's time to put pizza inside the oven. This will also make everything settled over the base of pizza. Bake the stuff for about 15 minutes and then allow it to cool down a little bit.

Step 7:This is the final step and it is the most important one. What it is? It is to eat the sizzling pizza.
