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.
UPDATE: Thank you to everyone who sends me pictures of my recipes on Twitter & Facebook – here are a selection!!
*My pizza recipe topped with tuna, onion and sweetcorn with passata and low fat cheese.
Tried the pizza receipe last night and have to say it wad without doubt the nicest pizza i have ever tasted,so light and so fresh and a sinch to make. Can see myself skiping the cheat meal of pizza and wedges on the weekends for this instead,thanks so much outstanding nic outstanding recipes!!
Aw thank you Eoin! So glad you liked it!
This was such a nice change from usual pizzas, extremely tastey and healthy! Loved having it on whole meal tortilla wraps aswell which was great as it made the pizza all about the toppings and flavours rather than the base. I’ll definitely be making it again 🙂
I couldn’t have said it better! So glad to hear that you liked it 🙂 thanks for your comment!
I’m eating this pizza at the moment and… Waw ! Just replaced red and yellow peppers by sweet potatoes and carrot and chose to spread everything on a tortilla. Simply delicious ! Super tasty and light. I want to make it again and again ! Thanks for this awesome idea 😀
Thanks Estelle for your fab suggestions! I’ll be trying your version soon 🙂 Nic x
Just had this for lunch….delicious! Thank you for sharing 🙂

Thanks for the great comment 🙂 I’m so glad you liked it – your pic on twitter looked amazing!!
Making this for my dinner tonight. Im having chicken, spinach and sweetcorn on mine. A few more calories, but still healthy! 🙂
That sounds super healthy!! Do let me know how it goes 🙂 #eatcleanjune !!
Great tasting, would recommend it, as its a great replacement for the usual take away pizza
So glad you like it 🙂 Loved your pic on twitter! Thank you 🙂
All I can say is yummy!
Haha thanks Claire!!
Made my version of this for lunch today using a warburtons squarish wrap as a base and topped with tinned tomatoes, chicken, red onion, spinach, red pepper, sweetcorn, cherry toms, tiny bit of reduced fat cheddar and some oregano. Only came in at about 260cals on MFP so added in a side salad. Made my husband one too and he’s just said he can’t believe he still feels full 4 hours later! Winner, thank you! X
Aw that sounds amazing!! Thanks for your comment Heather – love the addition of spinach.. I’d add it right at the last minute 🙂 Nic x
I am in love with this recipe. Goes down a hit with my friends and family too, and so filling. x
Hurray! So glad you like it. Working on a courgette pizza base too (!) Nic x
I’m not much of a cook but determined to eat better and improve so this was the first recipe I tried for my cheat day this week and it was so good! Really easy to make (even for me!), filling and really tasty. Nice to eat something ‘naughty’ without feeling horrible and sluggish afterwards. I’m definitely going to be trying some more in the future. Thanks Nic! x
Whoop whoop! And even better, you can eat this pizza any day of the week! x
As you know i made this tonight after work, what a treat it was, thanks nic for sharing these recipes..
I loved your pic! So glad you enjoyed it Paul! Thanks for your comment 🙂 x
Inspired by Nichola’s healthy pizza, I decided to swap my weekly Pizza Express one (from the supermarket) and make my own. I used wholemeal tortilla instead of pitta and it was absolutely delicious. Also, while I was making one for dinner, I made a second one and folded in half like a calzone and had it in my packed lunch the next day. It was even more delicious as it had overnight for all the flavours to develop!
I made the base with tinned tomatoes, basil, garlic and a spoon of sun dried tomato paste, reduced down. Then topped with tomatoes, sweetcorn, mushrooms, onions etc and cheese. Absolutely delicious and guilt free!
Oh that sounds gorgeous Leah!!! Thank you so much for sharing your great tip with everyone! Nic xx
This was the perfect idea for our 7 year old and our friends too! Everyone got to make a pizza of their choice, with an array of different toppings! Quick easy and effective! 🙂
Thanks as always for your great ideas!
Hurray! So glad to have helped 🙂 xx
Hi Nic, I have just had this for my lunch using Warburtons Sandwich thins as my base and cooked sliced Turkey breast as the butchers did not have any raw. It was absolutely beautiful, i’ve been trying to be healthy and get fitter so have avoided pizza and really missed it, now you have given me an amazing guilt free version of an ultimate treat! Think i’ll wash it down with a brew and slice of your version of healthy banana bread i made yesterday! Your blog is great, Thanks for all the ideas! xx
Aw thank you Hannah! So glad you enjoyed it 🙂 xxx
Made mine with one wholemeal pitta cut in half topped with Ready made pasta sauce with chicken , mozzarella and a small piece of chorizo. Baked in the oven for 15 mins 🙂
It looked so gorgeous, thank you Stephanie!!
