Roasted Chicken & Veggie Cauliflower Pizza. Easy. As, Pie.
Pizza isn’t the worst food in the world and it doesn’t ruin a healthy diet. THANK GOODNESS, right?
Have some portion control and fill the rest of your plate with veggies vs. garlic bread or wings. Instead of having 4 slices, order a salad when you’re eating out to help avoid overeating. At home, I not only suggest adding those veggies on the side but also as toppings. Let the fiber and nutrient dense ingredients from the roasted chicken and veggie cauliflower pizza fill you up before going overboard with fatty meats and too much cheese (yes, there is such thing). I usually make a trip to Trader Joe’s for my sauce and dough!
