YES! Finally a low-calorie pizza recipe. This whole pizza comes in at less than 300 calories which is TINY in comparison to shop-bought pizzas (which can range from around 1-2000 calories depending on the size, type of crust and toppings!).
Making your own pizza is not only fun, but it means that you are in the driving seat of how healthy you want to make it. I’ve chosen to use turkey in this recipe as turkey is not only a super tasty, low fat, high protein meat but it also tends to be cheaper than chicken too.
Turkey is a great source of essential vitamins and minerals, including Niacin for a healthy nervous system, Vitamin B6 for healthy blood cell formation, Phosphorus for healthy bones and teeth, and Selenium for a healthy immune system.
So, you can leave your deep-pan, stuffed crust and fatty pepperoni toppings in the shop. Here’s my super healthy ‘skinny’ healthy pizza recipe .. and if you did want to make it slightly higher in calories (but still keep it healthy) then you could:
1) Use a whole pitta bread instead of slicing it in half or simply use a pre-made pizza base (this will increase the carb content)
2) Swap the ‘light’ mozzarella for regular (this will increase the fat content)
3) Add a drizzle of olive oil before baking (this will increase the fat content)[ingredients]
*you can swap the pitta for 2 x wholemeal tortilla wraps too
**omit for a vegetarian pizza!
– you can also choose different vegetables depending on your taste preferences e.g. sweetcorn or spinach (add these just before baking)[method]
*you can roast the vegetables instead of frying – simply put the vegetables on a baking tray, sprinkle with thyme, spray them with your 1 cal spray oil, mix and pop in the oven (180 C) for 20 minutes until softened.
