Herb Crust Instant Pizza

Instant anything sounds good, right? This is one of those recipes when you have little time but still want to do a fancy-ish pizza. No prior prep is needed and the crust is to die for. It is healthy too because you are using Greek yogurt that will do the job of leavening @sarchakra
