Now is the time to wipe off the misconception that tasty pizzas are unhealthy, and healthy pizzas are never tasty! This recipe transforms the international favourite into a healthful snack by using whole wheat flour instead of maida to create the base, and replacing cheese with an innovative low-fat cream cheese. A chunky topping of broccoli and capsicum along with pizza sauce help retain the authentic flavour of pizzas while restricting the calories and fat content. These handily sized Nutritious Mini Pizzas will be a welcome addition to a party once in a while.
