Samosa Pull Apart Pizza.

Hello friends am back again a unique recipe and am sure you all will love it. It so happened that yesterday I wanted to have samosa’s for dinner and my little munchkin denied to have them saying that its junk food. Instead she wanted to have pizza. To this I told pizza equally falls under junk food category. Poor girl all the excitement in her face vanished in a second. She told ok then make something  with cheese may be a pizza samosa.

The name was new to me but i wanted to give it a try. The design for pizza was adopted from Google images and I  really don’t know the who created design but whosoever it is I really appreciate his/her work.
