Bhakhri pizza is easy and tasty pizza recipe where regular pizza base is replaced with Bhakri – Indian Wheat Flour Flat Bread. Bhakri is traditionally made in Gujarat and Maharashtra and also in Rajasthan.  It is thick roti and is very crispy and cooked slowly. We can call this healthier version of Pizza owing to use of Wheat Flour Base. In this recipe I share 2 variety of pizza, one is regular and another is tandoori bhakhri pizza. Both are loved by kids and good to go for parties too. Do try this!
