Pizza Protein Muffins

They’re low in carbs and packed with protein, for a fast, filling meal and no afternoon sugar crashes. We used spinach, onions, and olives in our version, but you could also add mushrooms, pepperoni, or any other pizza topping—even anchovies. Make two batches and freeze in individual Ziploc bags; grab one or two in the morning, and they’ll thaw by lunch. Serve at room temperature, or pop into the microwave for 1 minute to warm.
