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.
