Recipe

I have a deep love of turning any vegetable I can into pizza.   It's hard for anything to taste bad with marinara and cheese in my opinion.   So when you combine zucchinis (which I already love), protein packed ground turkey, marinara, spices, and some melted cheese - you end up with the perfect low carb and low calorie lunch.  Seriously at under 250 calories this is a great way to indulge without any of the guilt.  Ground beef or vegetarian crumbles work great as well and this keep well in the fridge and freezer.
