I think the word Bhakhri will be unknown to you. It is one Indian bread and it is made of coarse wheat flour . Normally, pizza base is made of refined wheat flour, which is not considered to be good for the health. So, replacing it with this Indian bread called Bhakhri is a great hack, isn't it? Bhakhri is healthy too!
