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!

Roasted Chicken Pizza Pizza Nutrition Info:

Whole grain crust: As part of a general healthy diet, consumption of whole grains is associated with lower risk of several diseases and promotes satiety. Whole grains are a source of carbohydrates, multiple nutrients and dietary fiber. In contrast, the proteins of the pseudocereals have a high nutritional value.

OR

Cauliflower Crust: Cauliflower is a nutrient dense veggie with a lot to offer. It’s full of antioxidants like vitamin C and manganese, and even has phytonutrients, vitamin K, and omega-3. Cauliflower pizza crust a great option if you are looking to increase your veggies and try something new!

Red Peppers: Great source of Vitamin C and Vitamin A! Bell peppers also contain significant amounts of vitamin B 6 and dietary fiber. Pile them on!

Spinach: Packed with nutrients including vitamin K, vitamin A, manganese, folate, magnesium, iron, copper, vitamin B2, vitamin B6, vitamin E, calcium, potassium and vitamin C. Do I need to go on?

Chicken: Awesome lean protein substitute for pepperoni, sausage and other fatty meats.

Garlic: Great way to flavor veggies without the added sodium! If you don’t have time to mince garlic, powdered garlic is an easy substitute.
