Chicken Veg Pizza


The cheesy pizza makes me drool every time I come across a picture of it. The stretchy like texture of mozarella can drive any cheese lovers totally crazy.
This one was made, when I was craving one so madly, and hence with available ingredients at home. The favourite toppings however are, Olives, Jalepenos and Mushrooms.
