Healthy Homemade Pizza

I think we can all agree when you start focusing on your nutrition and eat healthier foods, pizza is a meal that we unfortunately need to limit or cut out completely. My partner likes to order pizza quite regularly, and while I would love to join him I reluctantly say no. I have now figured out a way to solve this problem, make our own healthy pizzas!

The bases are high in protein and literally take 5 minutes to make (minus the cooking time). When choosing the toppings for your pizza, always aim for as many veggies as possible!


Healthy Homemade Pizza

Crust Ingredients:

  • 4 eggs
  • 2 tbsp of water
  • ½ a teaspoon of garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon o mixed herbs
  • ¼ of a teaspoon of salt
  • ¼ of a cup of coconut flour

Topping Ingredients:

  • ¼ cup of tomato paste
  • ½ a small red onion, finely sliced
  • 2 large mushrooms, finely sliced
  • ¼ cup of olives, sliced
  • 1 small red capsicum, sliced
  • 2 handfuls of fresh spinach, finely chopped
  • ½ cup of grated cheese

Instructions:

  1. Preheat the oven to 180 degrees.
  2. To make the crust, mix all ingredients together and whisk well with a fork until combined. Leave it for a couple of minutes for the coconut flour to absorb the liquid.
  3. Line an oven tray with baking paper. Transfer half the mixture onto one side of the tray, spread to an 8-inch circle. Repeat to make 2 bases.
  4. Cook for 15 minutes.
  5. Spread the tomato paste onto both pizza bases.
  6. Add the rest of the toppings and place back into the oven for a further 10 minutes.
