Can you eat pizza while losing weight? Of course, it should only be a healthy, low-calorie topping. Because without fat salami and a lot of cheese, the calorie bomb pizza is quickly defused. Whether for lunch or dinner: Try our low-calorie pizza recipe ideas!
Low calorie homemade pizza
For the dough you choose wholemeal flour or you mix wholemeal flour with white flour. For example, one recipe for a mixed dough is: 350 grams of whole wheat flour, 50 grams of normal wheat flour, 200 ml of water, 2 tablespoons of oil and about 1 teaspoon of salt. Knead everything as normal to a dough and bake for 25 minutes at 180 degrees.
You can also mix a few spices directly into the dough (basil, oregano). Roll out the dough as thin as possible and fill it with more abundance. That's what the Italians do.
You can really save calories when surfacing:
- Dispensed with fatty sausages such as salami. For that, you fill the pizza with turkey breast or lean ham.
- Try something new: Tofu, shrimp or tuna on the pizza will taste better than sausage.
- Vegetables fill you up and provide few calories. That's why the vegetable content on the pizza may be great. Choose what you like: tomatoes, onions, peppers, corn, mushrooms, zucchini, broccoli, spinach.
Pizza in the restaurant or from the pizza delivery service
If you order a pizza in the restaurant, there are of course a few calorie-saving tips: Let the dough crust lie and eat only the inner part of the pizza. Choose a pizza with a meager topping (ham instead of salami, tuna, lots of vegetables) and as little cheese as possible. Alternatively, you can share the pizza with your companions and for the half pizza you order a mixed salad. You can also order a frozen pizza with additional fresh vegetables or you can do it the same way: just eat half a pizza and a big filling salad.
Stuffed mushrooms, tomatoes or peppers
The most delicious thing about a pizza is for many the baked. However, the many dough, for those who want to feed on low carb, is not ideal. As part of a low carb diet, such as the South Beach diet, you can also prove vegetables instead of dough! Portobello mushroom hats: Portobello mushrooms have particularly large mushroom hats and their own are excellent for filling! Preheat the oven. Fill the mushrooms with a tomato sauce or some spicy tomato paste, then add fresh slices of tomato, fresh herbs (oregano, basil).
Instead of the tomato, you can also cover the mushroom hats with grilled vegetables (zucchini, peppers, eggplant) or fresh leaf spinach. On top comes some cheese (low-fat cream cheese, mozzarella, feta cheese, Parmesan cheese or Harzer cheese) and then put it in the oven until the cheese is melted and crispy.Meat Tomatoes: Take large beef tomatoes into the neat filling fits. Then you hollow out the pulp and fill the tomatoes with everything you like. On top comes some crumbed feta cheese and then put it in the oven until the tomatoes are cooked and the cheese is nicely crispy (maybe cover with an aluminum foil to prevent the cheese from burning). Stuffed peppers: Recipes for stuffed peppers we have two for you: Pepper Vegetarian and pepper stuffed with chickpeas.
