Replete with the three hues of capsicum, this pizza is as much a visual treat as it is a culinary one! Readymade pizza bases are made using refined flour (maida), which is very unhealthy, but here is a delectable, healthy option made with wholemeal pizza bases, that not even the diet-conscious can deny.


Compared to the pizza made from maida, this nutritious nibble gives only 104 calories per pizza, making it an undoubtedly healthy option.
