Tomato and Mushroom “Pizza” in Korean Style
Sally Shi-Po POON, Hong Kong Nutrition Association and Registered Dietitian (UK) said, "Compared with the traditional pizza, this recipe uses more vegetables. It also uses low-fat cheese to cut down saturated fat intake, which is good for cardiovascular health. In addition, the natural ingredients such as chilli, garlic and basil not only enhance the flavour of the dish, they also reduce the use of salt, the content of which is otherwise significant in traditional Korean sauces."
