      Thanks so much for the very nice comment, ishwary! I appreciate the votes and the share as well. Pizza is also one of my favorite food items. Although I really like cottage cheese I have never thought to top my pizza with it. I will have to give that a try!

      A deliciously engaging hub on one of my favorite food-items! The recipe sounds yummy with my favorite toppings such as mushrooms, peppers(green) and olives and also others being tomatoes and paneer (cottage cheese). The first photo looks yummy! Adding plenty of knowledgeable details piqued my reading interest! Well-done!

      Thanks for SHARING. Useful & Interesting. Voted up.
