As we pointed out a few days ago when we released our Melted Feta Bake, the best way of eating well and staying healthy isn’t to follow the latest trends and life-changing diets (lose 400kg in just two days!), but to adapt yourself to an overall healthier intake.
Robbing yourself of your favourite foods isn’t always the answer either – you’ll end up with ever-growing cravings and very possibly a huge binge on said forbidden fruit (if only it was actually fruit).
Take the pizza. One of the world’s favourite meals, easy to make, easy to bake, and most definitely tasty. But unfortunately loaded with carbs, calories and fat, and often very few benefits in tow.
But we all love a good pizza, and I for one won’t be going without. Which means it’s time to make it better for us.
So…a thinner base and less cheese sounds like a good start. A tortilla makes the perfect replacement, and tastes great too. A single ball of mozzarella will do for four as well, so that’s the cheese sorted. You can even make your own salsa – cheaply and in five minutes for a delicious base.
Bung on your favourite toppings and voila! You’re done. As is the tortilla pizza.
