Low Carb Tuna-Avocado Pizza with Poached Egg
Delicious, healthy, low carb tuna-avocado pizza with poached egg, with high protein and low carbohydrate content. Enjoy it for breakfast, lunch or dinner, it tastes the best while still warm. This healthy tuna pizza is one of my most favorite fitness recipes at all.
Pizza crust is unconventionally made out of tuna, eggs, water and chickpea flour, so it is possible to prepare it completely gluten-free. However, if you don't have chickpea flour at home, you can replace it with any other flour to maintain the right consistency. Spread the mashed avocado on the baked pizza crust and decorate the top of the pizza with a perfectly cooked poached egg and dried tomatoes. Trust me, this healthy meal tastes even better than it looks. In addition to the perfect taste, you can also look forward to outstanding nutritional values. This low carb pizza contains rich amount of protein, fiber and healthy fats. 2 servings come out of one pizza and they are filling enough, but of course, if you are very hungry, you can indulge yourself with the entire pizza without remorse.
Already 1 serving of this healthy low carb pizza is quite rich in selenium, phosphorus, zinc, B vitamins, iron, magnesium and vitamins D, A and E.
