Introduction: Whole Wheat Veggie Cottage Cheese Pizza

About: A Software Engineer. I love learning new things. Hooked up with Instructables. It is the biggest find I ever made. :D Cooking and Crochet are my passion. I love to learn different techniques and cuisines.

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.
