Pizza! These Protein Pizza Wraps have great macros, and are perfect for meals on the go!
I don’t often make pizza at home (I live in New York City, after all), but I did recently try a version of cauliflower crust pizza. I don’t know about you, but I have better things to do than to squeeze all that water out of my mashed cauliflower. C’mon, now.
I’m sure you know by now that I like easy recipes. I also like recipes that I can take with me for a long day at work. So when trying my hand at protein pizza, I decided to go for Protein Pizza Wraps. And what a success!
Things have been kind of tough right now personally, and I can honestly say that making these Protein Pizza Wraps made me so happy. Because, well, pizza! With great macros!
You can be sure I’ll be experimenting with different crusts and wraps, and different toppings. But let’s get something straight. I’m an Italian-American girl from Brooklyn. There will not be any pineapple, banana, cheddar, or other ridiculous toppings on my pizza. You all can do whatever experimenting you like, but that won’t happen on my watch. ;)
