Spring is officially here and we’re on a mission to stuff as much fresh spring greens and produce into our daily rotation as possible. Lucky for you (and us), we’re topping all of this freshness atop a gluten-free, paleo, low-carb pizza crust that’s easy as pie to whip up!
For this pizza rendition, we’re skipping out on the tomato sauce-drenched, greasy slice of yore and replacing it with a super fresh slice that’s packed full of protein and fiber — from its crust right down to its toppings.
Who says pizza can’t be part of your meal prep plan?
