Whole wheat peppered pizza
The things we can do with what we have are amazing.
The question is, are you stocking your house with healthy variants?
Firstly, always have whole wheat flour at home. You can buy the wheat grains at any open market, and right there, you will see a miller to grind it. Substituting your white flour for this healthier option is a major step. and you can use this for a lot of recipes for the family.
Secondly, you can get a lot of oyibo food from the big supermarkets. I have gone round a lot of supermarkets, now I know where tin tomatoes is cheapest at(economy crises). Always make time to compare prices. It’s heart breaking to be buying something that can be N500 for N1500. Chai, that’s the height of heart break eziokwu.
When you are buying, always read the product content, calorie content and nutritional value guide on each product. Don’t just buy. It’s very important. Not everything edible are actually edible (you get bah?).
Ok, so back to the subject matter. Don’t mind the not so exciting look oh. This pizza was the ish! You will never buy commercial pizza once you start making yours at home. Total preparation and cooking time 32mins (inclusive of distractions).
