So what happens to a pizza addict turned healthy? The addiction continues, in a healthy way. Healthy isn't about deprivation. It's about getting creative. Recreating your favorite "no-no" foods in new, healthier ways. Figs and goat cheese are the perfect pair for a pizza. Its that little bit sweet, little bit salty mix that satisfies all the cravings.
We treat fruit as dessert. So this pizza is a treat. Figs are a higher glycemic fruit. However, fresh figs have a lower glycemic load than dried. They also do have a lot of nutrients. So, in order to decrease their impact on your blood sugar, pair them with healthy sources of fat and fiber to elongate the spike. The most crucial part of eating pizza is the crust. Our go-to is the Cali'Flour crust. They're made of clean ingredients that will keep your gut healthy and allow you to "indulge" in your favorite...pizza! (We all know it's Kyle's fave!)
