Chicken breast and zucchini based pizza

Those “nice” 🙄 Low-carb days, which are fortunately few and far between, are those in which I paradoxically enjoy to create and experiment more in the kitchen.
I like to try new combinations to overcome the last days before reloading.
There are endless possibilities to be creative, you just need to have time … mmmm time … its fast and merciless flow is the issue for everyone.
This is precisely why I avoid getting myself into complex preparations, firstly because I have little time myself and I imagine it’s the same for everyone, secondly because I’m definitely not a chef, who does it for a living… I need to eat as soon as I get back from the gym… or I’ll go through the whole fridge!
The recipe today is far beyond simple, requires a little craftiness to roll out the dough, like a real pizza, and you’re done.
It doesn’t contain cereals, it’s not a real pizza, but it meets my needs when I want something different from the usual  grilled chicken that haunts my diet regime.

Since the base does not have a real crust, I use roasted broccoli to give this pizza its crunch.

How much did I spend **?

In order to make this chicken and broccoli pizza, I spent* € 4.15 per portion, which is also quite cheap.

Products availability: Everything is easily found at the supermarket, the availability is excellent.

Fails:

The  first time I tried to make this pizza  I made a lot of mistakes.

The issues concerns the thickness of the base.
If it’s too thin, it dries out, if it’s too thick it gets a bit stringy.
I spread the dough until roughly a couple of mm thick.
So the first attempts can be hit and miss, if it doesn’t work out first go, don’t give up and try again.
