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.
