herbed chickpea pizza 2

If you follow Fresh and Fit, you know I love taking traditionally not so healthy recipes and making them very nutritious. This herbed chickpea pizza with caramelized onion, brussels sprouts and walnuts is one of those recipes. The high protein and fiber content in the chickpea flour make this a recipe that will fuel your workout instead of ruin your efforts. The recipe makes a personal size pizza, but the density of the crust make it very filling and ideal for sharing.

Grilled Peach Chick-Pizza

Grilled Peach ChickPizza Recipe

 

This doughy grilled peach chick-pizza reminds me of a cross between falafel, pizza and a peach tart.  Quite a meal packed into one. It is not super crispy in the center but is sturdy and can easily be picked up. I should also mention that it happens to be high in plant based protein, due to the chickpea flour used in the dough. This is an awesome pizza option for anyone avoiding wheat or suffering from gluten allergies; or if you’re like me, anyone who likes experimenting with different textures and flavors. The size of this pizza is small, but it is deceptively filling. Two people could be very satisfied splitting one. But if you are really hungry, make two and save the leftovers for later.
