Ask The Muscle Cook: Do You Know A Healthy Pizza Recipe?

Fitness nutrition doesn't have to feature the same ol' boiled chicken breasts and baked potatoes. I turn plain and boring into delicious!


I get pizza cravings, too! One of my favorite foods is pizza so, naturally, designing a healthy recipe for the normally fatty food was a necessity.

The greatest thing about this recipe is that it tastes just as good as a regular pizza (some people think it tastes even better!), plus it's good for you. The trick is simple: Use natural ingredients with high protein, moderate carbs, and low fats.

This pizza is perfect for any time of the day. It's one of my favorite recipes to make ... and then to eat! It's super easy to prepare and cook, has fewer than 10 total ingredients, and contains no harmful additives that you might normally find in a takeout pie.

Chicken Pizza

  1. Cook chicken separately.
  2. Spread Spaghetti Sauce on Pita Bread
  3. Top with chicken and veggies
  4. Sprinkle with mozzarella cheese, salt and pepper
  5. Bake in Oven at 375 Degrees F. for 15 minutes or until pita bread is crusty.

Muscle Tips: When the pizza is nearly done, turn it to broil and watch carefully as the cheese turns to a golden brown, just like delivery.
