Wholewheat Cheesy Pizza – homemade too ! Step by Step pics

Today, I must make an exception. And that is to publish a post without any words,although I couldnt do away without an intro. This dish has been my dream ever since I saw various other bloggers make a pizza from scratch. It did take me a while to get the wheels running, but I was glad I tried it.

And I did do it ! And guess what ? More than my kiddo who was mighty pleased with this weekend treat, I did a little jig myself. The pizza came out uber soft, healthy and delicious. I am running down the ingredient list, and the pix are, hopefully, self explanatory.
