Ever see someone enjoying a nice big slice of pizza and thinking, wow I wish I could eat that and still lose weight! And then in your mind you start trying to justify to yourself that, that one piece of pizza could actually be low in calories,
“I mean there’s all those vegetables on top and its baked, not fried.”
Well a typical slice of pizza can have anywhere between 150 and 300 calories depending on the toppings! I mean the base alone is full of carbohydrates from white flour, and most restaurants these days put enough cheese on top of them to sink any boat! But today I will share with you a nice clean recipe for pizza which you can make at home very easily. Remember, you can replace the eggs with 1-1/2 tablespoons vegetable oil mixed with 1-1/2 tablespoons water.
Allow to cool slightly, and then enjoy a pizza high in fibre and protein!
Are you allergic to gluten? Many places now offer gluten free options for pizzas, much like ActivEats who even deliver, so just remember to ask!

Ever see someone enjoying a nice big slice of pizza and thinking, wow I wish I could eat that and still lose weight! And then in …
- 3 eggs you can remove up to 2 yolks if you don’t want the fat - for base
- 50 grams jungle-oats-raw Base Ingredient
- 1 tsp baking-powder Base Ingredient
- 1 cup milk Base Ingredient
- 1 tsp salt Base Ingredient
- 0 onions sliced - for toppings
- 0 tomatoes sliced cherry/big tomatoes - for toppings
- 0 mushrooms sliced - for toppings
- 0 mozzarella-cheese grated - for toppings
- 0 avocado sliced - for toppings
- Separate the eggs in a bowl. Add the rest of the BASE ingredients and mix well.
- Then use some spray and cook on a non stick pan, or in an electric frying pan (I prefer this option as it’s much easier), and pour the mixture in. Keep the heat on a low setting, cover with a lid and allow to cook through for a few minutes.
- Once pretty much cooked, flip it over (like a pancake) to slightly cook the other side, for a few seconds, and then remove from the pan onto a cooling rack.
- Now for the toppings you can be creative and add pretty much anything YOU like on a pizza. Here are a few basics ones I used: Onion, Tomatoes, Mushrooms, Mozzarella cheese, Avocado
- Once the base is cool spread some tomato sauce/paste all over the base (You can always experiment with other sauces).
- Then slice up the toppings and sprinkle all over the base. Then grate some cheese and sprinkle over. Grind some black pepper over if you like.
- Once all the toppings are on, place in the oven on grill at 180 degrees for about 5 – 8 minutes until the cheese has melted.
