Why Choose a Low-Calorie Pizza Recipe?
Opting for a low-calorie pizza recipe is a game-changer that allows you to indulge in a classic comfort food while keeping your health and wellness in check. While regular pizzas are mouthwatering, they almost always come with a lot of calories (and excess grease!) that leave us feeling overall sluggish and regretful.

This recipe allows you to savor every bite guilt-free, while knowing that you’re providing your body with wholesome and nutritious ingredients that it craves. Let’s say goodbye to the calorie overload and hello to a pizza experience that supports a healthier, happier you!
Health Benefits of Summer Squash & Feta Pizza
The questions, what about this pizza isn’t healthy? With a variety of ingredients that provide countless benefits, it’s difficult to narrow this down to just a few. First things first, let’s start with the star of the show: summer squash! Packed with essential vitamins and minerals like vitamin C, which helps the immune system and promotes healthy skin, as well as potassium, which helps regulate blood pressure and support heart health, this veggie brings a powerhouse of nutrients to the recipe. With every bite of squash, you’ll be getting a healthy dose of fiber, which aids in digestion and promotes a healthy gut.
What would this recipe be without the feta? I personally love feta, so I admit, I go a little overboard with this creamy ingredient. Not only does it add a tangy burst of flavor to the pizza, but it also adds a handful of muscle-supporting nutrients. Because it’s a high-quality protein, feta helps you feel fuller, longer, and is also a great option for those seeking to maintain or build lean muscle mass. In addition, feta cheese is a rich source of calcium, which supports overall skeletal health!
Finally, the star secret ingredient: Unflavored Super Youth. By just adding 1 scoop of this versatile collagen to the mix, you’ll be giving your body an extra boost of skin-loving goodness. Because it so seamlessly mixes into the pizza dough, with each bite of this delectable pizza, you’ll be nourishing your skin from the inside out. Say hello to a happy gut and a radiant and youthful complexion!
