This pizza has a pita bread for a base, which acts like a thin crust in that it highlights the flavours of the ingredients on top of the pizza.  Take away pizzas will be a thing of the past when you see how quick & easy this is to make, and how great it tastes.

This is high protein which will keep you feeling full until your next meal.
