For your taste, we propose in this article two recipes for diet pizza.
Low-calorie cauliflower pizza
For this recipe, it’s best to use frozen cauliflower, so the pizza won’t have a cabbage flavor. This is a great idea for a low-calorie snack for a party. Although this pizza can easily be eaten on its own because it is not harmful to the figure.
For the recipe we need:
- Frozen cauliflower – 500 g
- 1 egg
- Parmesan – 15 g
- Salt – 1 pinch.
- Tomatoes – 1-2 pcs.
- Mozzarella – 90 grams.
- Boiled turkey filet – 100 grams.
- Parmesan – 15 grams.
- Dill greens, parsley.
Cooking by steps:
Defrost the cauliflower and whip with a blender into a puree.
Using gauze, folded in three layers, squeeze the juice from the cabbage. The volume of mashed cabbage will almost halve.
Put the mashed cabbage into a bowl, add the egg, grated Parmesan, and salt. Mix well.
Line a baking mold with parchment, grease it with olive oil, and place the cabbage base on it.
Preheat the oven to 190 ° C (374 °F ) and bake the base for 15 minutes.
After 15 minutes take the base out of the oven and sprinkle it with grated cheese. The products prepared for the filling are cut into thin slices and placed on the base.
Put the pizza with filling in the oven for 10 minutes.
Sprinkle greens on the ready dish.
Healthy flourless zucchini pizza
The recipe for this diet pizza is very simple and will appeal to those who follow healthy eating habits.
You will need the following products:
- 2 medium zucchini;
- 1 egg;
- 2 spoons of ketchup or tomato sauce;
- 150 grams of cheese;
- Boiled chicken;
- Salt and black pepper to taste.
First, we make the zucchini “dough”. Grate zucchini on a coarse grater. You can not peel the skin, as it contains a lot of useful nutrients. Add salt and black pepper, stir and leave for 5-10 minutes. This will enhance the extraction of the juices.
Meanwhile, slice the cheese (if you took a soft cheese, such as mozzarella), if hard, then grate it on a coarse grater.
Cut the boiled chicken into small cubes.
Now let’s make the dough. The zucchini will give juice during this time and you need to squeeze them well.
Add one egg and mix. If the dough is too runny, you can add some semolina.
Cover the baking tray with parchment, spread the dough out in an even layer about 0.5-1 centimeters thick.
Bake the base for the diet pizza in the oven for 10 minutes at 190 °C (374 °F).
Grease the surface of the pizza base with ketchup or tomato sauce.
Put the chicken and cheese. Bake for another 15 minutes at 180 °C (356 °F).
Yes, the taste of the pizza “dough” is a bit unusual, but the main thing to remember here is that it is very healthy, natural, and light. Especially if you are on a diet.
