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)
- 1 round wholemeal pitta* (sliced in 1/2 when flat)
- 1/2 red pepper
- 1/2 yellow pepper
- 1/2 courgette
- 3 mushrooms
- 1/4 red onion
- 4 cherry tomatoes
- 1 turkey breast steak, cubed**
- 1 calorie spray oil or 1 tsp oil
- 4 tbsp of tomato passata
- 80g lighter mozzarella
- black pepper
*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)
Preheat your oven to 180 C (160 C fan)
Spray a non-stick pan with 1 calorie spray oil and add your cubed turkey breast. Fry for 3-5 minutes until cooked then put in a bowl for later.
Chop the vegetables and spray the pan again with 1 calorie spray oil. Add all of the vegetables, apart from the cherry tomatoes and stir-fry until soft.
Mix your vegetables with the cherry tomatoes and cooked turkey pieces.
Lay the pitta bread halves (cut side up) on a baking tray and spread them with ~2 tbsp of passata.
Top with the vegetable and turkey mix before adding thin strips of the mozzarella and a sprinkle of thyme and black pepper.
Bake in the oven for 8-10 minutes until the cheese is melted and serve with salad.
*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.
