The best comfort food for adults and kids, pizza is beneficial for the spirit probably more than for the body. But sometimes it is as important to be happy after a meal, at least for me.
The fact that I love pizzas with vegetable toppings the most, helps a lot to reduce the feeling of guilt. Also, the typical Italian pizza is much lighter than the American cousin in cheese and condiments. Usually when you go to a pizzeria in Rome you order your own large size pizza and most of the time you can finish it by yourself: not because we have a gargantuan appetite, but rather because the pizza is much lighter altogether.

If you hesitate diving into this recipe, thinking why I should make pizza when I can buy it frozen or I can order it at any time of the day and night, reconsider: this is a simple 5 ingredients recipe for a made-from-scratch pizza. The dough comes together in a couple of hours, it is not sourdough, but the result is very satisfying. This is more like the Roman pizza, thin and crispy rather than thick and chewy. And definitely healthier than any store-bought options.

Also, it is a wonderful family project that will create fun memories.
