ABOUT Whole Wheat Vegetarian Pizza RECIPE

If you think pizza can’t be a part of healthy diet, then think again. Here, I have used whole wheat flour instead of all purpose flour to not only make the pizza crust healthy but to have a fluffy, soft and crispy pizza that we all know and love. Experiment with the toppings and let the kids choose them.
