20 minute pizza

Sometimes you really REALLY want pizza. Nothing wrong with that! Here’s my no fail 20 minute pizza – perfect for when that craving hits.

Pizza tends to get a bad wrap. But there’s nothing wrong with a bit of pizza, particularly when you cook it yourself.

It can be a very nutritious meal and fantastic recovery fuel depending on what ingredients you choose to top it with. You get some carbs from the wrap and can absolutely load it with vege to get the micronutrient benefits and fibre without a salad in sight.

One of my go-to pizza hacks is to use a tortilla wrap, cover it in some tomato puree or pesto. The vege gets a bit roasted but still has plenty of bite. Why not give this a try next time the pizza cravings hit?
