Recipe | "Flatbread Pizza" Sent in by Dr. Kirsten Corda

"In Italy, pizza is traditionally a healthy food often eaten as part of a larger family meal. Over the years, however, Americans have commercialize pizza into a high-calorie fast food with a nutritional value limited by our preferences for high-fat meat and cheese toppings. This recipe uses pre-cooked flatbread from India, but any bread on the bottom will do. The point is that you control the calories (and cost) by cooking at home." - Kirsten Corda
