Introduction: Whole Wheat Veggie Cottage Cheese Pizza
How about some healthy pizza. The whole wheat pizza is soft and chewy on the inside and crisp on the outside. I have used an Indian topping with cottage cheese also called as paneer.
The topping is tomato based and it goes well with the whole wheat pizza crust.
100% healthy version of pizza. Hope you like it.
