MINI PIZZA WITH PIZZA SAUCE - HOME BAKER'S CHALLENGE

Yum
Hi dear friends, am coming here very enthusiastic to post the recipe but at the same time I having fear like exam result, as I prepared and tasted PIZZA first time in my life… Yeah!!! Trust me…  I never tasted or prepared it before…  

I love the taste of the pizza but I don't get Mozarella cheese here, so I used normal processed cheese slices. The crust was quite soft and aroma of the veggies was good...
