Tips & Tricks
Preparation and storage tips
You can store the baked pizza in the fridge for up to three days. Reheat it in the microwave and it will taste as good as freshly made. If you want to save time, you can make bigger batches of the fathead dough and freeze it in a zip lock bag or a container. It can last in the freezer for up to 2 months and in the fridge for a whole week. To defrost it, reheat it in the microwave on low until it’s soft and lukewarm to the touch. Remember, you don’t want to cook the eggs when microwaving!
This delicious pizza is rich in calcium from the mozzarella. Mozzarella is also a good source of phosphorous, a mineral that helps with calcium absorption when consumed in moderation. A great thing about mozzarella cheese is that it’s low in carbohydrates, providing only 2g per 100g of product. You will also get plenty of vitamin K and folate from the spinach and brain-benefiting B vitamins from the chicken.
