Why tip the pizza guy when you can bake up your own pie that really delivers?
Any way you slice it, the popularity of pizza has never waned among hungry runners. Is there a more satisfying post-run fuel than a cold leftover slice? But all it takes is a look at the bottom of an oil-stained pizza box to realize that your takeout pie isn’t exactly a nutritional superstar. That’s why DIY pizza almost always reigns supreme. Simply choose a crust that suits your style and pile up topping combos that are good for you and tasty too. Try this Thai Shrimp Pizza for a new take on classic dinner choice.
