Nutritional values

This low-fat pizza is an excellent source of protein, which is important for strong muscles and bones. Additionally, this recipe is full of B vitamins, immune system-strengthening zinc, and cell-protecting vitamin E.

Instead of using crayfish tails, you can also top the asparagus pizzas with cooked shrimp or smoked salmon, which provides an extra portion of iodine and omega-3 fatty acids.
