Since learning to keep endometriosis at bay, I have adjusted my healthy eating habits to fit my body’s needs.
Every time I create a healthy recipe, I focus on adding value to my health by using healthy ingredients that nourish my body.
And so, I came up with the idea of replacing the pizza dough with homemade spinach tortilla to add some nutrients and reduce the amount of refined carbohydrates.
Another part of healthy eating and weight management is controlling refined carbohydrates.
This healthy pizza is hearty, delicious, high in protein and fiber, and has a spinach tortilla crust. You can also buy a whole wheat tortilla. But I prefer to make it myself because it’s fresh, contains healthy ingredients, and has no preservatives.
This healthy pizza is great for your lunchbox and keeps you full.
