Chocolate Mini Pizza

  Pizza is an oven baked flat , round bread typically toppedwith a tomato sauce , cheese and various toppings. Pizza was originally invented in Naples , Italy and the dish has since become popular in many parts of the world. Many varieties of pizza exist worldwide , along with several dish variants based upon pizza.
 Pizza is an emerging fast food in Indian urban areas. Pizza outlets serve pizzas with several Indian style toppings like Tandoori chicken and panner.
 I didn’t try pizza with chicken , I already made stove top mushroom pizza . This time want to make something sweet , so made this chocolate pizza.
 Chocolate is a raw or processed food produced from the seed of the tropical cacoa tree . Much of the chocolate consumed today is in the form of sweet chocolate , combining cocoa solids and cocoa butter or other fats and sugar.
Cocoa solids contain alkaloids such as theobromine and phenethylamine , which have physiological effects on the body. It has been linked to serotonin levels in the brain.some research found that chocolate eaten in moderation can lower blood pressure. Chocolate has become one of the most popular food types and flavors in the world.
