How Pizza Can Fit Your Macros (Recipe)

Recently I’ve gotten MUCH more into micronutrients and making sure that I have lots of different colors and types of vegetables in my diet. It’s been a fun challenge to attempt to get myself to enjoy foods like kale and carrots, but I can happily say I’ve been successful!

However, I still like to eat pizza and make sure that it fits my macros.
