Pizza! Pizza! Fitness Trainer Approved

Ok. Let’s talk about Pizza. The weakness of many of my clients. It does not have to a bad thing however. There are lots of way around the high carbs which can add to your waistline. Introducing …Low Carb Pizza and Meatballs.

The most critical thing is to cut out the grains, gluten and and carbs by eliminating the classic crust. With this recipe, I make the crust with protein-rich eggs.

This meal is good anytime of the day. If there is any not eaten at dinner. Then it makes a great lunch the next day. Of course, you can add all your favourite topping or just use this recipe and enjoy the protein (muscle building) chicken meatballs.

What you need Servings: 4

Olive oil spray 6 eggs ¼ cup milk ¼ teaspoon sea salt ¼ teaspoon black pepper ¼ cup pizza sauce ¼ cup goat cheese, crumbled 1 tomato, sliced 12 chicken meatballs, cut in half ¼ cup fresh basil, sliced

Instructions

1. Place a large oven-proof skillet over medium-high heat. Lightly grease with olive oil spray.

2. In a large bowl whisk together the eggs, milk, sea salt and black pepper until fully combined and frothy. Pour the egg mixture into the preheated skillet and reduce the heat to medium-low.

3. Do not disturb the eggs as the set. Occasionally lift the edges of the egg and tilt the pan to allow any runny eggs on top to pour under the firmer egg. The idea is to maintain a nice round shape like a pizza crust. Once the egg is set, remove from the heat.

4. Spread the sauce over the top of the egg, as you would on a pizza. Top with the goat cheese, tomato, meatballs and fresh basil. Place the skillet in the oven under high broil for 2-4 minutes, until the meatballs are warmed and the cheese is melted. Serve and enjoy!
