Who would have thought that pizzas, which are normally categorized as junk food, can be easily transformed into a healthy dish by using corn and spinach Rotis instead of the unhealthy pizza base that is made with refined flour (Maida)! Also, cheese and corn help perk up the flavour along with pizza sauce. Wheat germ enhances immunity as it is rich in vitamin E, a natural antioxidant that fights disease-causing germs.
