Introduction: Whole Wheat Veggie Cottage Cheese Pizza

Picture of 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.
