Making your original delicious home made pizza

After spreading the handmade pizza dough into a circle, put the freshly picked vegetables on top of the pizza.

You can choose which vegetables to put on your pizza. The Japanese style pizza can also have whitebait(shirasu), lotus root, green onion. Or if you like it sweet, maybe put on the blueberry and cheese.

Cheese and pizza source will be included. If you're lucky, depending on the season, you can also make desert pizza with fruits and chocolate on top!
