Bhel Puri Recipe | How to make Bombay Street Food Chaat Bhel Poori by Kavitha Ramaswamy from Foodomania.com | Easiest Mumbai Street Food Recipe ever! | Bhel Puri Made Easy & Healthy Okay. You got me.

Caprese Salad Pizza

Anyone who knows me probably knows that I hate salads. I just cant wrap my head around the fact that eating veggies is good, especially raw. But then, what if I combined salads with my favorite form of carbs – A pizza base?! 😀 Wouldn’t that be the same thing? Except now, I believe I’m eating a Pizza and wouldn’t make a fuss about ‘uncooked food’. 😛 (more…)
