Pizza with Homemade Spinach Pesto:

Who doesn’t love Pizza?  I love Spinach and paneer in all forms. So, thought of clubbing my spinach pesto recipe into veggie pizza and prepared this for the kids. Should I say, even I loved it too: D

Usually I make pizza by chopping vegetables into bite size pieces and mixing it with the seasoning that one likes and mixing some chopped cheese too. It will surely give a more tastier pizza than normal veggie one.

In this way, veggies absorb more flavour and because of cheese it gives a little texture too.
