Pizza is comforting, which is why everyone loves it! Sadly, it doesn’t do any favors for your waistline. That’s why dieters tend to avoid this high-fat, high-calorie indulgence.

We Use Nutrient-Rich Ingredients

A light pizza recipe that is full of flavor and nutrients.

We love adding spring asparagus to pizza. It roasts to a tender-crisp perfection and adds tasty vibrancy to every bite. Besides contributing to flavor, asparagus also delivers fiber, folate, and vitamin A, C, and K. This superfood may also be able to boost digestion, help with weight loss, and lower blood pressure!

Garlic is another fantastic flavor for this pizza, and it carries its own set of health benefits. It contains antibacterial, antiviral, and anti-inflammatory properties. All in all, it adds immune-boosting effects to every bite of this delectable pizza.

Likewise, turkey bacon gives added flavor to each slice of our asparagus and turkey bacon pizza. The drool-worthy topping packs a protein punch without carrying the caloric burden you’ll get from regular bacon. As a bonus, the deliciously lean meat contains B vitamins and minerals as well.

Our Incredible Chickpea Thin Crust

Plus, it delivers fiber and protein to keep you feeling full and ward off cravings.

Ultimately, crust makes up the backbone of pizza. It acts as the canvas for all your favorite toppings and pizza ingredients. Using an ultra-delicious, waistline-friendly foundation makes the entire recipe that much better!
