Once the dough gets fermented after 3-4 hours, give one punch to the dough so that it sets down. Now, take the dough, the whole of it, and start making one big round ball with your hands. Now, with the help of rolling pin, roll the dough in round shape, just like chapatis or rotis or flat bread. This flat bread should not be too thin, nor too thick.
Heat the pan for 2 minutes. Now apply water on one side of the raw pizza crust with your hands and put it on pan, this way it sticks to the pan. Cover it from the upper side and cook on low flame for 5-7 minutes. Check after 4 minutes and allow it to cook for some more time. Now, flip the pizza crust and cook for 5 more minutes. No need to cover it this time.
After cooking properly from both sides, flip it again and spread pizza sauce all over, arrange sweet corn, sliced bell peppers and spread cheese all over the vegetables. Cover again from the upper side and make it like tandoor. Cook pizza for 3-4 minutes so that the cheese melts down.
