FIT FOOD PROJECT #2: LOWCARB FITZZA WITH CHICKEN DOUGH

LESS CARBOHYDRATES, MORE PROTEIN

The pizza that goes with the Sunday movie on the sofa is a pleasure that even the biggest fitness freak should be able to enjoy without wanting to starve themselves the next day to compensate. Is there a low-regret pizza? Yes, and not only that, it is also high in protein.

Fittest Freakest launches the second FIT FOOD PROJECT to save the fall Sunday pizzas that are coming with Nutrimeals chefs and nutritionists with a very healthy version of this famous “cheat meal”.

We present the homemade pizza with chicken dough. A low carbohydrate version, since it eliminates flour from the dough and replaces it with chicken, so it is a gluten-free and high-protein pizza perfect for athletes. No pizza, no gain.
