Easy Healthy Pizza

18 Sep

Me and my family are big pizza fans. But we are also a super healthy family and so I found an easy recipe that makes pizza quick and and most importantly healthy. We load the pizza with all sorts of vegetables and I will list all the ones I use but pizza is definitely a customize recipe. It is the kind of meal that is best to do with all the family. You can do any number of things with a pizza, make a face or give each family member a section of the pizza to top with whatever they like. It is so much fun.

 

Easy Healthy Pizza

Base:

170g wholemeal flour

140g white flour

1 instant yeast sachet

1/2tsp salt

125-150ml tepid water

Tomato Sauce:

1 x 400g can tinned chopped tomatoes

1 small onion, finely chopped

2 garlic cloves, minced

1/2tsp dried oregano

1/2tsp basil

1tsp granulated sugar

salt and pepper

Toppings:

grated or slices of mozzarella

1 x small tin diced pineapple

2 spring onion, finely chopped

1/2 courgette, diced

4-5 button mushrooms, sliced

1/2 pepper, diced

  • For the base, mix all the dry ingredients in a bowl. Add the water in separate additions, stirring after each addition until it comes into a ball of dough. Turn onto a floured surface and knead a few times, roll out to the desired thickness. Put onto a floured baking tray and fold the edges up to form a crust.
  • For the sauce, heat some olive oil in a  saucepan and fry the onion and garlic until slightly softened. Add the tomatoes, oregano, basil and sugar and season with salt and pepper. Simmer over a low heat for about 10mins. Taste and correct the seasoning. You can blend it at this point for a smooth sauce or leave as it is.
  • Smooth the sauce over the base, sprinkle with cheese and scatter the vegetables as desired. Bake int he oven for about 15mins until the dough is cooked and the cheese is melted.
  • Slice and serve! 😀
