Amazing White Pizza!!!

Not only did this pizza taste amazing, it looked great and I knew I should have taken a picture to blog but I never remember to take pics (that and DH makes fun of me when he catches me - he still doesn't even know about my blog!) So, anyway, I'm on a new "diet" but I'm really just starting to be more conscious of my food intake. I don't want to give up my faves but I'm just making smarter decisions. LIke pizza for instance. I couldn't live without pizza so I'll still eat it, I'll just make two small ones - a man-friendly and a me-friendly.... Last night I grilled two small pizza's; my husband's had sauce, lots of cheese, pepperoni and canadian bacon. A good combo but not always waist friendly so, here was mine....
