This recipe was a game-changer for me. It was like finding a loophole in the system. A pizza crust made of chicken? It was like two of my favorite foods had a delicious baby. Not only did it satisfy my pizza cravings, but it also provided a good dose of protein, which is essential during pregnancy. And the best part? It was so tasty that I almost forgot it was a healthier version of my favorite comfort food!
