Chickpea Pizza & Sweet Potato Fries

Serves: 2 SmartPoints Per Serving: 6

Recipe details

Summary

Coach Zoe Sterling was inspired to create a home favourite for low points and set about creating this pizza base to reduce the points allowing for extra toppings to enjoy like your cheese and chorizo or pepperoni. It’s also a great option for anyone avoiding gluten. It’s best suited to a fakeaway night, when all the family want pizza and you don’t want to be excluded but want to see a loss at the scales too.

1 x 400g can of chickpeas drained and rinsed

4 x medium eggs

1 tsp Nigella seeds (onion seeds)
