Pizza Salad – the healthy way to satisfy your pizza craving

Sometimes the hardest thing about cooking dinner is just deciding on what to cook; a salad, pizza, curry or maybe a stir fry. But truth be told I am a great fan of mixing things up and creating something new. This method often leads to some great fusion meals, but at times they can be more of a con-fusion meal. However with summer on its way the salad spoons are back out but that mix it up attitude has spin on the normal salad. This is a more heathy alternative to a less heathy meal. So if you  have a craving for pizza – try healthy it up a little with this pizza salad.  It doesn’t take long to whip up and is far better for you than a pizza and just as tasty.
