Homemade Veggie Pizza

Pizzas are one of my husband’s favorites.  Instead of ordering pizza in, I decided why not try my own healthy version pizza with my husband by substituting low fat cheese and a few vegetables cut down on the calories, fat but not the taste.

This homemade vegetarian pizza is so quick and easy to make and it is great for any parties or get together. We can use any combination of chopped veggies and cheeses whatever your family likes. If your family has different tastes, simple divide the pizza dough into half’s and then place the toppings accordingly.

I used three color peppers, onion and mushrooms for topping. Also prepared pizza sauce using fresh tomatoes and fresh herbs which was excellent and absolutely delicious.

Here is the delicious, nutritious and colorful homemade pizza with tomato sauce.
