Everybody loves a good pizza, but let’s be honest they aren’t always the healthiest option. By swapping out your traditional pizza base with pitta bread and greek yoghurt for cheese, this pitta pizza will satisfy all of your pizza cravings without all of the unwanted extras. Best of all, this recipe takes 10 minutes.
I’ve tried a fair few pizzas in my time. I wouldn’t go so far as to call myself a connoisseur, but I know a good slice when I taste one. I’ve played around with some low-carb cauliflower bases but they just don’t fill me up, so I turned to beans for something more substantial. This Pizza is pretty phenomenal actually, both on nutrition profile and more importantly, taste. It’s cheesy, herby and chewy – the perfect start to the weekend, minus the hefty bill from Dominos.
The healthy stuff: A one-cup serving of black beans contains nearly 15 grams of fibre (50% of the RDA) and 15g of protein (equivalent to 60g chicken). This outstanding protein-fibre combination doesn’t exist in other fruit, vegetables, grains, meats, dairy products, nuts and seeds, or seafood. The antioxidants found in the skins of the beans promote better eyesight, cardiac health, capillary strength, skin appearance, and an improved immune system. They’re also great for energy, maintaining blood sugar levels, and digestion!
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!
I’m not going to lie, I miss pizza. But anyone on a low-carb diet knows those white-flour cheesy slices are a no-go. This dish uses Portobello mushrooms as a base and can be thrown together with whatever remaining veg you have in the fridge. An excellent way of incorporating more veggies into your diet, this dish also satisfies pizza cravings.
