When you create your own, you know exactly what the ingredients are.
The best pizza dough is homemade. Store bought pizza bases have too many artificial ingredients like preservatives which is why they can be kept on the supermarket shelf for a long time.

I find the best tomato sauce base is Italian Passata – sieved tomatoes which you can find in the supermarket. Thicken with tomato puree to make a paste.
Try to avoid highly processed meats. I like to use leftover gammon ham or ham on the bone at the supermarker. If you like salami or spicy sausage add just a few pieces per person. Its okay now and again.
Mozarella is used as a topping to this healthy pizza recipe. The secret to a healthy pizza is to use less cheese and more vegetables and low processed meat. Pretty Simple.
You can add as many of your favourite veggies to a pizza. Such as… peppers, onions, mushrooms, sweetcorn.
The topping for this healthy pizza recipe includes, ham and mushroom and a little mozzarella.
You can have your pizza and eat it!!
