  13. i hope dis works!!!!!

  14. wow! very clever! if one of u r telugu can understand this, "shebhash!" today my father bought the pizza base(4) and we don't have oven in our home... so we were searchin recipe without use of oven and we got it!

  15. but one thing, you said salt to taste in ingredients but didn't use salt in method. Users and chefs and whoever visits this site plz make sure that u add salt to the masala u have prepared and make sure that u add salt before sauce because if we cook salt with sauce then a little sour taste will make the pizza dirty and bitter!
