"Diet" Pizza, That Tastes Good? Yes It Does Exist

Who doesn't LOVE pizza (if you don't, I'm afraid we can't be friends ).

So what if you are on a fat loss plan, can you still eat pizza? YES

OK, so what about if you want to be gluten free and vegan, can you eat pizza? YES

2 tsp vegan butter

2 carrot (pref organic) washed and finally chopped

2 stick celery - as above

1 good tsp of turmeric 

4 tsp tomato puree

1 or 2 vegetable stock pot (depending on your taste)

600ml boiling water
