Small is beautiful! that’s so true of these splendid mini pizzas, which are brimming with taste and health in every bite. The pesto used in this recipe contains basil, which is rich in vitamin a, and walnuts, a wonder food rich in omega-3 fatty acids. Walnuts are also considered a brain booster! what’s more, healthy fibre-rich whole wheat pizza bases and an energy-rich corn topping make the handy and tasty corn and pesto mini pizza a nutritious treat! however, remember there is a lot of cheese in it too, so it should be enjoyed only in limited quantities.
