This simple recipe for Homemade Pizza delicious and the toppings are just limited by your imagination.

I have included two different homemade pizzas here. One with potato and herbs (carb overload) and another Mediterranean style pizza.

I have mentioned a few times before my family has an addiction to pizza. Most of the time we are pretty lazy and get someone else to make it. After discovering this recipe I will now be doing it myself. Its delicious coming straight out of the oven. Whilst this won’t win any ‘low calorie’ awards, just remember your portion sizes (it’s very moreish!) and it will be much lower in calories than your takeaway version. This recipe makes two pizza’s which 4 people could enjoy.
