Recipe: Pizza di Giro Donne

The Giro d’Italia Donne is in full swing and we take you to Italy, the land of pizza. Check the recipe of our Performance Chefs here.

Pizza is a favourite Italian dish of many. Because of the large amount of carbohydrates in pizza, the riders can use it to supplement their energy needs. By the way, it is always important to replenish your carbohydrates, whether you are cycling the Giro or faithfully following it from the couch.

To keep the pizza for our athletes Foodcoach-proof, we serve a modified recipe: Pizza di Giro Donne. The usual tomato sauce and mozzarella in this recipe have been replaced by more protein-rich products to further enhance recovery. With this recipe you can enjoy the Italian atmosphere, just like our riders.

Buon appetito!
