How to make Moong Dal Pizza

Moong Dal Pizza recipe is a unique dish I developed to blend my love of pizza with my desire to live a healthier lifestyle. I feel that eating healthily and not starving yourself is the best way to be healthy and fit.

Our family enjoys pizza, but I’m not a big fan of the all-purpose flour that goes into it. I attempt to make healthier versions of any dishes we enjoy. I used moong dal for all-purpose flour in this recipe, making this meal healthier.

So here’s one of the best recipes for boosting immunity and maintaining energy levels throughout the day. A simple yet remarkable recipe for fluffiness and delicate texture on the inside with perfect crispiness on the outside.

Vegan Twist for Moong Dal Pizza Recipe

It already has a gluten-free variant, and to make a vegan one, simply replace the cheese with olive oil or veg oil, and you’ll have your vegan pizza.

I know, it becomes monotonous to eat dal, in the same way, every day, and the quantity of protein required by the body is insufficient in one little bowl of cooked dal.

Vegetarians have few protein sources, and lentils/dals are the greatest way to supplement protein in their diet. Moong dal pizza is an excellent source of protein. The veggie toppings and cheese provide additional nourishment.
