We all love pizza, but we also want to be fit and healthy. Traditional pizza crust is loaded with processed ingredients and simple carbs that promote weight gain, BUT THIS PIZZA CRUST is different! 

This pizza crust is made with CHICKEN, QUINOA and EGG! 

It’s incredible that ingredients that are this full of protein and wholesome nutrition can come together to create a legit pizza crust! You’ve simply got to try this recipe if pizza and protein are two things that you love. 

I loaded up my pizza with Super Greens Pesto​ and Perfectly Seasoned Oven Baked Chicken Breast​...yummmmmm!
