In this series of Pizzas, the next in line was Homemade Whole Wheat Pizza and Marinara Sauce.
I made Eggplant or Brinjal recipe as my first Pizza and the interest sort of waned. I made 3 pizzas and they kind of flopped. So I decided that I stick to what I know instead of experimenting.
With my confidence totally shaken I looked inward or rather blogward. What I had was Whole Wheat Thin Crust Pizza dough and Marinara Sauce. Absolutely as it is no changes? Of course not, I used basil in my Marinara Sauce.
The only toppings used mushrooms, capsicum and mozzarella and some hard cheddar cheese.
What I got were 3 thick pizzas. The appreciation that my girls gave “the best pizza “comparing it to Dominos Pizza was enough. The pictures of the slices I have are those that I ate with a sigh of relief that I finally got it right boy was I tired!
