Low Fat Pizza Recipes


Low fat pizza recipes? Why, certainly! You see, eating pizza does not have to be a sin.

Yes, normal pizzas contain industrial amounts of fat and kilojoules, and they can be addictive too. Trust me. I know.

But you can have the pizza and eat it too (get it?)... hmmm

It all depends on the ingredients you use. They don't need to be loaded with fats and carbohydrates.

Choosing the right ingredients will ensure that you have a healthy meal without sacrificing flavor.

In fact, I dare say that once you switch onto preparing (and eating) healthy low fat pizza recipes, you will find "fat pizzas" not as appealing as before getting into healthy eating.

And you can make your own pizza dough too: a delicious wholemeal base is easy to make, and I'll show you how on this page.

But if you could not be bothered to bake your own bases, relax... you can also use pre-packed normal pizza bases (as sold in your favorite supermarket).

What's more... if you want to save in carbs, fat, and calories, you can also substitute a normal pizza base for Lebanese bread or pita bread. Really!

As you will see, making a pizza is a creative and fun process very much similar to making excellent sandwiches.

So, without further ado, this is the recipe to make your own basic pizza dough:



Basic Low Fat Pizza Dough Recipe:



This dough recipe makes 4 bases. Each base makes a pizza for 4.

This base is low in fat, and contains iron, zinc, niazin, magnesium and vitamin B1.

Ingredients:

  • 2 Tbsp dried yeast
  • 1 cup lukewarm water
  • 1/2 kg (1 lb) wholemeal flour
  • 28 g (1 oz) soya flour

This is what you do:

First, mix the yeast with the water.

Next, mix the flours and pour over the yeast mixture. Mix it well and knead for 10 minutes or so, till the dough goes smooth and elastic.

Then place it into a bowl and cover with plastic wrap for about 30 minutes to allow it to raise.

You can then divide it into 4 equal portions and freeze them in separate plastic bags. However, it is better to roll each portion out (with a roller pin) making your round pizza basis.

That's it!

Now you're ready to experiment with the low fat pizza topping recipes that I include in this page. Truly delicious!
