By: Claire Georgiou, Reboot Naturopath, B.HSc ND

Pizza is one of the most popular meals to enjoy around the world. While it’s best to treat yourself to this cheesy delight only on certain occasions, there’s other ways to get your pizza fix without the bread and cheese weighing you down. You can still enjoy the pizza flavours while enjoying a healthy alternative by replacing white refined flour bases and the processed toppings with alternatives that are super healthy instead. We have some great Reboot pizza recipes such as our Gluten-Free Quinoa & Cauliflower Veggie Pizza, Purple Cauliflower Pizza, or our Quinoa and Teff Sweet Potato Pizza for you to enjoy! And now we are adding another one to the list! This is a great meal to include on your transition in or out phase for your Reboot.
