He was pestering me to bake a pizza it was almost a month since he had a pizza so i thought as it was last day of vacation why not treat him with a pizza ..This time I thought I'll make a Whole wheat pizza and went on..I was really surprised to see that the whole wheat pizza was as delish and soft as the one made with refined flour/maida ..
I arranged the pizza and put it in the oven to bake ..As soon the timer went off he was shouting with joy to enjoy his pizza i had to make him wait since it was piping hot and he could have burnt his tongue..till then quickly captured few shots for posting this..As he tasted I could see the dimples and the joy in his eyes and he said Goma (godmother) this is the best pizza ever..lol I was happy not because he said its the best but because i knew i fed him something good and healthy by making a whole wheat based pizza..
Ok I think I wrote enough now off to the recipe..
for the pizza base refer this recipe only substitute the flour with 3 cups wholewheat flour /atta
