Filipino Style Pizza (Lechon Manok with Kesong puti)

I am one of the few people that doesn’t like pizza. For simple reason that its too good yet lavishly rich in calories. Not that I’m concerned with my weight but I feel guilty everytime I’m indulging this italian pie that has been internationally embraced as their own. Anywhere we go we’ll definitely find pizza with the local flavor of its own. Here’s my own rendition of Filipino Style Pizza
