On Homemade Pizza
Making homemade pizza is terrific. Given the wide variety of potential pizza toppings in the world, you can really create a meal to your specific tastes (this is especially good for vegetable lovers), and different individuals in a group or family can have their own preferences. You also have more control to make it a healthier meal.
It's also a superb family activity. You can let children put toppings on their own pizza (or portion of a pizza), giving them a fun chance to participate in family meals. It's great when you can make meal preparation into a fun family activity in itself, and making pizza gives you that chance. Some kids really enjoy it.
I also recommend using pita bread as pizza crust: it's easy, can be lower in calories, and I think it tastes better.
So what if this blog becomes a boring diary of my experiments in vegetarian cooking?
