Pizza is an authentic Italian dish and originates from the same country. It is has a flat round base of dough. and is topped with tomato sauce, different veggies as per choice and cheese . It can be topped with meat, fish or chicken along with veggies and cheese.
Today, I have made the pizza with the popular basil pesto. Instead of a tomato based sauce, I have spread fresh basil pesto on the whole wheat pizza base. I have topped my pizza with baby spinach, feta cheese, mushroom slices and cherry tomatoes. The combination of spinach with feta cheese and tomatoes with pesto is wonderful . The pizza will also look tempting due to the presence of different colors in it. Feta cheese and basil pesto have salt in it and hence there is no need to add the extra salt in the pizza. I have stir fried the mushroom slices till brown.
