It has been ages since we made some pizzas at home. Pizzas are not as unhealthy as what people usually think of- unless of course, it is filled with heaps of cheese and not enough protein or vegetables. I’m a big fan of making them at home as I can control how much per ingredient I am using. It’s also a great back up recipe to use when travelling with mates. I recall how much fun we had making mini pizzas together with a few friends.
Hubby suggested using chorizo- now, that isn’t exactly the healthiest. But one can control the amount of fat but cooking it in a pan till all the fat render out. Then use it as a topping. This version uses mango chutney as a base sauce and feta cheese.
The other one was slightly more my kind of pizza. Pieces of smoked trout with avocado, rocket and feta. Yum!
