Final day under Make your own Pizza . Well the last two days I have been posting variations of Pizza , where I posted a Watermelon Pizza , Pizza Soup , but today I decided to give you guys an actual pizza , no not a Italian pizza but a Turkish Pizza .

I remember Pavani posting one long back , and ever since I have been wanting to make one . This is a boat shaped stuffed pizza where mostly non veg stuffing is added , sometimes topped with eggs . Since we are vegetarians I decided on a corn stuffing along with some pizza purée. You could choose your own stuffing . The boat shape ripped open from one side but it tasted amazing . Yes I did cheat for once ! I had just one slice , to know what exactly I had made .
