Innovative to the core, there are many aspects that make the Khakhra Pizza appealing to kids, and satisfying to moms too. Instead of a plain flour base, this pizza uses nutritious whole wheat khakhra. As the base is thin and crispy, it also requires much less cheese than a traditional pizza. While fresh veggies like cabbage and capsicum add crunch to the topping, exotic tomato salsa brings in a flavourful punch. What’s more, the Khakhra Pizza is also temptingly colourful, so no kid can say no to it!
