Delicious Pizza with Salad
The lowest calorie pizza’s available are 1500 calories and the nice ones are 2000+. 1500 calories is the total daily female weight-loss level. Pizza’s are truly lethal but lovely! I prefer my healthy ones
I found the perfect bases, Pizza de Piero in the fresh food fridge in most supermarkets (4 x 50g bases), they crisp beautifully You can also use a pitta and half it. The toppings are all healthy food. You just gotta be careful with the amount of cheese but placing it on top makes it seem like lots. I now cook pizza in rather than buy outside and that is a real proud boast.
60g, 1 wholegrain pitta or 50g, 1 Pizza da Piero base
25g, 1/2 small red onion
15g, 10 small olives in brine
30g, 1/3 red pepper
30g, 1/3 green pepper
60g, a few mushrooms
6g, 2 small fillet anchovy
30g, Grated low fat mozzerella or 20g, 1 slice dairy-free Tofutti cheese
a few capers
30g rocket or peppery lettuce
5ml, 1 tsp flax oil
5ml, 1 tsp vinegar
5ml, 1 tsp lemon juice
Pre-heat the oven to high and bake the base on a pizza tray high up in the oven (pizza tray has holes) for 3 minutes
Mix 3 eggcups of passata. large squirt of tomato puree with the chopped red onion in a bowl. Spread this mixture onto the base right out to the edges and put back in the oven for another 3 minutes. This crisps up the base.
Meanwhile, slice the peppers, mushrooms very thinly and dice the anchovy into small pieces. Chop the olives or leave them whole. Take out a few capers.
Measure out your serving of grated mozzerella (small handful 35g is 65kcal) (I buy the light from the supermarkets)
If you are cooking for a larger group pf people, allow them to place their choice of toppings on their base, just leave all the ingredients on your table top, kids love this.
Pile the toppings onto the pizza base and put the cheese at the very top.
Bake for another 6 to 10 minutes depending on how you like your pizza. I like to see the cheese just turning brown.
Pile a big handful of rocket in a large plate and drizzle with flax oil, vinegar and lemon juice. Serve the pizza on top or some prefer underneath.
The picture shows the gluten free pizza using the Living Well pitta bases, sliced into two bases.
Pizza da Piero bases are made in Rathgar and sell in Dunnes and Supervalu in their fresh fridge section. They sell as 2 large bases (395kcals each) or 4 small bases in one packet @ 130kcals per base. I use 1 small base in this recipe.
