The Low-Carb, High-Protein Pizza With A Mexican Flavour Twist

The twist here is magical chipotle paste. If you haven't come across it before, you're gonna thank us for this. Chipotle is a pepper that has been dried in smoke. They are used in a number of Mexican and Mexican-inspired dishes and their unique smokiness is desirable and very moreish. For home cooking, the best way to get hold of this flavour is via a paste, readily available in most supermarkets. 

Here we have used it as part of the base sauce for a low-carb pizza and to dress up some chicken to go on top. The result is as described above, smokey, spicy and addictive. At just under 40g of protein and 9.3g of fibre for just 8 carbs, this is a perfect post-workout pizza, but for anyone just looking for a low-calorie pizza, it's only 382 calories for the lot!
