HOW TO MAKE PUMPKIN BASED PIZZA AT HOME

I have never imagined that one day I would be able to make my own pizza!

The very thought of making a pizza dreaded me. Perhaps the food programs on TV that I watched as a child: where the chef took the dough and spun it in the air made me dread doing it because I was afraid the dough would fall on the floor or stick to the ceiling of the roof.

But thanks to a wonderful lady, she advised me to make my own pizza from scratch using my favourite ingredients such as broccoli, pumpkin, avocado and spinach.

Below is a comprehensive guide of how you can make your own pizza from scratch. Now you no longer have to order fast food. Why not try to make your own pizza and enjoy every bit of the process.

Moreover, you can make your pizza healthy and put your favourite ingredients. Home Cooking is always the best.
