7 - PALAK PANEER NO OVEN PIZZA SPINACH AND COTTAGE CHEESE by Suchi Datta
Popeye, the sailor man! Beep Beep!
That's how the jingle to our loved cartoon show went and Popeye was an inspiration for us to eat spinach and get lots of energy.
But what to do about kids of today? They don't have an inspiration like Popeye!
How about we top spinach with some healthy paneer on a pizza and make them relish it without knowing what it is!??
We're sure it'll solve your woes!

8 - CAULIFLOWER CRUST VEGGIE PIZZA -GLUTEN FREE by Anusha Arun Rajan
"Pizza is just so unhealthy!"
"But we still love it and we go weak just looking at it"
That's how our mind functions at the mention of pizza, right?
Forget the worry when you can actually make a healthier version, avoiding the use of that store-bought white flour crust that scares you.
The recipe of the day is a version of a deceptive pizza, a pizza with a cauliflower crust and not your regular fermented flour one!
Have a look and try considering this pizza for a once-aweek junk food challenge and we promise, you won't complain!

Talk about delicious and easy-to-make snacks and Khaman surely hits our thought! These soft and spongy snack cakes from the Gujjuland are quite popular amongst foodies from India and abroad.
So the recipe for today is a Khaman Pizza, a perfect amalgamation of two different cuisines: Gujarati and Italian!
Our blogger Rupal Patel calls it an addictive recipe, so you definitely should try this and see for yourself how addicted you get!
10 - WHOLEWHEAT VEGETARIAN CALZONE BY Kalyani
Today we bring to our foodies, a different variant of a normal round pizza! This is a Calzone recipe, which is a folded pizza, with the toppings working as stuffing.
In fact, out blogger Kalyani has rendered her Indian touch to this one, but you can feel free to give it your culinary touch too!
These are good for parties, picnics or potlucks, or maybe just the tiffin boxes, as they can be prepared in advance too!
A pizza always understands, isn't it? Go for it!!
