Have an entire pizza for 195 calories (or 314 with a generous bunch of toppings)

If you think dieting means eating cod and salad every day then you sure are wrong my friend. I just had a whole pizza for dinner. Yes, this is a pizza that is actually good for you and no, you’re not cheating. ๐Ÿ˜€ It’s low calorie and high protein so you can have the whole pizza without any guilt feels at all. crispy and filling that leaves you satisfied for only 195 calories and can easily be done for a vegan too (it’s 140 calories if you sub the egg for the flax eggs). Doesn’t it sound like every dieters dream?

For this crust I used my own gluten free blend which contains
30 % tapioca starch – 300 g
35 % sorghum flour – 350 g
35 % corn starch – 350 g

1/4 tsp instant yeast
1 heaping T gluten free flour blend (7 g)
1,5 T bake protein (7 g)
1 egg (or two flax eggs for vegan version)
1/2 tsp guar gum
Spices like oregano, garlic powder, salt and basil
1/3 cup or 0,8 dl cooked, riced cauliflower (50 g)
3 T coconut flour (21 g)
A splash of warm water (110-115 F or 37-40 C)
A splash of unsweetened almond milk
1 tsp whole psylium seeds

Blend the yeast with the water and set aside. Blend the psylium seeds with a splash of almond milk and set aside. In a large bowl, combine all the dry ingredients and add the cauliflower and the egg. Stir in the seeds and the yeast. Feel free to add more gluten free flour if the dough is to dry! Cover the bowl with a towel. Let rest for at least half an hour in a warm and dark place. I use my dryer for this and I’m not even kidding you.

Meanwhile, heat up your oven to 400 F or 200 C and prep all your toppings. Once the dough is done resting, press it in a rounded baking pan (about 10 inch or 27 cm) and bake in the oven until crispy and golden brown (10-20 min). Lastly, add all your toppings and bake it in the oven until all the toppings are done!

  1. I don’t know what half these ingredients are… “honestly”, however, I’m taking this list with me to Whole Foods and will not leave until I have each and every ingredient! I’m in… because, I need this pizza in my life for 314 cals with a bunch of toppings! Bridgette ๐Ÿ˜‰

    • Hahaha oh how lovely! Please do not hesitate to ask if you can’t find something or by any other reason can’t buy a ingredient. I will immediately look over substitutes (AND EAT PIZZA AGAIN!! WOHO) ๐Ÿ™‚

  2. Reblogged this on Duane & Todd's Kitchen and commented:
    As I sit here eating my wonderful bowl of {PopCorners chips and drink my evening glass of wine, I came across this blog post. I have seen other posts from this blogger, which have tempted me (and I will report on the success of the recipe later I am sure), but this one caught my attention because of the calorie count and the topic. I am going to reblog it here for you all, as I am not sure how quickly I am going to be able to get to trying it out and it just seems too good (conceptually) to NOT share.

    I remember early on in the start of our blog that one of the people reading had mentioned problems with gluten, and therefore I think this recipe would be GREAT for them (you know who you are…. wink wink). I hope you enjoy this post from a fellow blogger. I promise there will be more original posts from Todd and I very soon!

    Thanks for reading!

    • Thank yooou! ๐Ÿ™‚ Protein powder is a bodybuilding supplement. Its basically a powder that’s extremely high in protein that is often used in protein bars and shakes by athletes. Since it promotes weight loss because it keeps you full and is a easy way to nutritional excellence I often recommend using it. However, you might sub it for whatever flour you have at hand. My favorites are gluten free flour blend, sorghum flour, buckwheat flour and chickpea flour (great in savory recipes and also high in protein!)
