Topping your own pizza is a fun way to get your family involved in helping and creating their own dinner. Choose foods that supply lots of colour for maximum nutrition. When you don’t have the time to make your own dough, use 100% whole wheat pitas. They’re low in fat and not as thick as store bought pizza breads. They’re less expensive too!
