Guilt-free pizzas? Yes, please!

August 3, 2017

Say what you may about pizzas but it’s a meal in a slice, which means it’s super convenient especially when you are a time-pressed mum trying to feed a hungry horde.

However, conventional pizzas tend to be high in fat and salt, making them quite the calorie-trap. So, can you enjoy a cheesy slice sans the guilt? Yes, you can!

Below are two pizza crusts you’ve got to try.

Oh, a note on toppings: Aim for lots of greens, fresh seafood and lean meat, and cut down on the smoked meats and sausages.

Quinoa pizza crust
Crust
1 cup
quinoa, cover with water and soak for at least 8 hours
1 tsp
apple cider vinegar
1 tsp
dried oregano
A pinch
salt
A dash
ground black pepper
Some olive oil to coat the pan
Toppings (amount is up to individual)
2 tbsp
pesto
Peeled
artichoke heart
Fresh spinach
Shredded mozzarella
A pinch
salt
Shaved parmesan
Steps
1

Set your oven to 190C. Lightly coat the base of an 8-inch cake pan (if you have a pizza dish, great!) with some olive oil. Set aside.

2

Drain the quinoa and put it into a food processor fitted with a blade. Add the apple cider vinegar, dried oregano, salt, and black pepper. Blitz everything until you get a paste similar to pancake mix.

3

Using a tablespoon or offset spatula, spread the paste evenly on the cake pan. Bake for about 15 minutes or until the base is firm to the touch.

4

Remove the crust from the oven and add the toppings. Pop the whole thing back into the oven until the cheese has melted. This will take 5 - 8 minutes.

5

Remove from oven, slice, and enjoy!

Cauliflower pizza crust
Crust
1 small head
cauliflower (you want enough to yield 2 cups)
A pinch
salt
1/2 tsp
garlic powder
1/2 tsp
dried oregano
A dash
ground black pepper
1/8 cup
shredded parmesan cheese
1/8 cup
mozzarella cheese
1
egg
Toppings (amount is up to individual)
2 tbsp
tomato paste
Tuna flakes in water
Fresh spinach
Chopped garlic
Shredded mozzarella
Steps
1

Set your oven to 200C. Lightly coat the base of an 8-inch cake pan (if you have a pizza dish, great!) with some olive oil. Set aside.

2

Blitz the cauliflower florets until you get a sand-like texture. Steam the processed florets until tender. You may also microwave the florets for 4 minutes.

3

Leave the florets on a tea towel to cool. Once cool enough to handle, wring the florets and squeeze out as much water as you can.

4

Add the wrung-out florets and rest of the crust ingredients into a food processor. Blitz everything until you get a dough.

5

Pat the dough into the cake pan. Make it as compact as possible so your crust doesn’t end up too crumbly.

6

Bake the crust for about 15 - 20 minutes or until the edges start to brown a little.

7

Remove from the oven and add the toppings. Return the pizza into the oven and bake until the cheese turns golden brown.

8

Remove from oven, slice, and enjoy!

Note: This crust will be floppy so be prepared to eat this pizza with cutlery.
