Healthy Pizza Recipes

Children love Italian food and it is easy to make healthy versions of pizza recipes. (Try to use a wholewheat base for more nourishment. I have come across delicious spelt bases in health food stores. And of course, if you have the time, the nicest bases are those you make yourself!)
