Pizza just got healthy with these delicious Bhakri Pizza Bites. Ditch the all purpose flour, these thin crust and crispy mini pizzas are made with whole wheat. The pizza base is Vegan, Eggfree & Dairy Free.
Bhakri is an unleavened (no raising agents used) disc shaped flatbread, commonly consumed in some states of India. It is one of India’s traditional flatbreads which is usually coarser than the modern Rotis and Naans. It’s pretty much like a think crust pizza bread or is often compared to a British biscuit because of it’s hardness. You can make it soft or hard as you desire. Although a lot of different kinds of flours can be used to make Bhakris, I have used the most commonly available flour in every home and made them with Whole Wheat Flour.
Honestly I have had Bhakri’s a few times to taste but had never made them myself. To my surprise, they turned out to be better than I had expected. Thanks to my sisters MIL who decided to make Bhakris for us one evening. I wanted to make it enticing for Little A so came up with the idea of making Pizza Bites out of it. Usually the first time I introduce Little A to something new I try to dish up something that would appeal to him. As anticipated he absolutely loved his pizza bites.
As a mom what I liked about this healthier twist is that, this pizza crust is prepared with minimal ingredients. I try to minimize the use of All Purpose Flour (Maida) as much as I can. Infact it’s not something that is easily found in my pantry. This pizza crust is made with whole wheat and since it’s the kind of bread where no raising agents are required, I like that I can skip the baking powder, baking soda or yeast. I have flavored my crust with herbs but if you think herbs are not readily available or if you want to skip them entirely that’s fine too.
