Watermelon Pizza. Healthy, fruit pizza. Low carb, sugar free. The Fit Foodie Blog Recipe

Watermelon Pizza

We can all agree that it would be *awesome* if there was a healthy version of pizza out there. There’s just something about picking a multitude of toppings that gets me over-excited. While this one isn’t filled with melted cheese, it’s just as delicious (promise). It’s practically a fruit salad, which means you can have 4 slices of pizza and not feel ill. You will need a watermelon any then anything else lying in your fruit bowl or pantry – scarcely a recipe, but share-worthy all the same!

A great way to curb cravings, this simple jam contains much less sugar than the store-bought stuff. It takes about 3 minutes to prepare, and with the help of the almighty chia seed, it will fill you up quicker. Dollop on your morning oats, swirl into yoghurt, use as a fruit dip, or spread on some delicious rye bread. With the addition of liquid, chia seeds swell to 17 times their original size and slow the conversion of carbohydrates into sugar. Clever little things.

I used to think figs were reserved for people with digestive issues, but when my friend at the local farmers market forced me to try the fresh stuff, I was hooked. Juicy and not overly sweet, figs make a fantastic base for stronger flavours. Here they’re paired with cinnamon and rice malt syrup – but get creative with other items in your cupboard for endless variations!
