 Mini Ragi Pizza - Recipe Under 15 minutes

The biggest advantage of millet is that it is structurally similar to wheat. As a result, baking with millet can often give similar outcomes. The crust becomes thin and crispy around the edges with a tender middle. The grains start to ferment an even sprout a bit, which adds a complex, fermented taste to the dough - kinda like traditional wheat dough! 

It is the freshly baked millet base, with tangy pizza sauce, some cheese, and toppings that make it an unbeatable combo.
