This is how you prepare yourself a healthy pizza without the bad conscience, perfect for any diet and suited for athletes
Who doesn’t wish for something like this? Enjoying a pizza without having the bad conscience. I’ve never heard of a person that claims not to like pizza. No matter where in the world, pizza puts a smile on everyone’s face!
Still, pizza is and stays a true calorie bomb. When it’s about ready-made pizza and or the pizza from the Italian restaurant next door, nobody seems to care about nutritional value, calories or the philosophy of a well-balanced diet.
Cheese mostly consists of an oil imitation, which is easy to identify by the pizza carton being soaked in fat. The dough is usually made of wheat flour which spikes your blood sugar levels and inhibits fat metabolism. The tomato sauce? Sweetened.
Our goal is to revolutionize pizza in a healthy way. And you’ll still be able to enjoy the full taste and won’t have to give up on anything.
Our healthy pizza is: Low in calories (less than 500 kcal), vegetarian and made with fresh ingredients and spices.
We are making our very own pizza dough using spelt flour, which has a low glycemic index. One stays satisfied for longer, as there is no huge insulin release. Dough made with spelt flour gives athletes long-lasting energy!
Without wasting any time, we’re preparing our own tomato sauce using fresh tomatoes. We swap the usual pizza cheese for low-fat feta cheese. For the typical pizza flavor, we’re going to work with mushrooms, broccoli, olives and spices.
- 100 g spelt flour type 630
- 50 ml tepid water
- some salt
- 1/4 cube yeast
- 1 handful olives
- 4 tomatoes
- 4 mushrooms
- 1 handful broccoli
We start by preparing the pizza dough: Blend spelt flour, water and yeast, preferably using a food processor. For optimal results, first mix water and yeast, and let it rest.
Only then proceed to blend flour and salt, and kneading the dough into a ball. Let the dough rest for 30 minutes, covered with a wet kitchen towel.
Roll out the dough thinly. About 3 mm thick, and 5 mm for the crust. Separate the tomatoes from their skin and crush them in a pot. Cook the tomatoes under consistent stirring, until you have a tomato sauce. Spice with salt and pepper.
Give the tomato sauce on the rolled out dough and top it with the rest of the ingredients. Finally, give the feta cheese crumbs onto the pizza. Bake for 15 minutes by 180°C in the preheated oven and you’re done!
