I know what you’re thinking. There is no way this girl is about to tell me I can eat pizza.
Well I was determined to find a way to eat a healthier pizza. When I have a craving nothing will stop me from eating it.
Obviously a dominos couldn’t be had (even though I really miss their beautiful gooey cookies) but I did find a healthier version of a good old pizza.
First of all, the pizza base. When I was younger I was bought up on pitta bread pizzas, and I really have no idea if they were common or not.. But I sure love them.
I searched the shelves for wholemeal pitta bread (but white would still work as long as it’s still low fat). Wholemeal bread is lower GI so more diabetes friendly!
But what on earth would I do about the cheese? I’m sure every dieter out there is aware of the high fat content in cheese. Even reduced far cheese is still high in saturated fats.
Enter Musclefood’s new virtually zero fat cheese. Now the link I’ve posted is for cheddar, but you can also find mozerella and sharp cheddar for all you mature cheddar fans. ** UPDATE FOR 2018 – EAT LEAN PROTEIN CHEESE IS A THING AND IT IS AMAZING. BASICALLY AVAILABLE IN TESCOS, MORRISONS, AND WAITROSE **
So the toppings were my next issue. I’m sorry everybody but pepperoni isn’t healthy. But you can easily find ham or roast beef in supermarkets with the nutritional information on the front showing how low in fat they are – especially compared to pepperoni.
Now if you really need to treat yourself to pepperoni then so be it, just don’t tell anyone!
Create your pizza with pitta bread, tomato Passata, 30g cheese and your toppings. Bake in the oven for 12-15 minutes at 180 degrees Celsius.
And if you’re a vegetarian just don’t add any meat toppings!
A perfect pizza every time!
