Healthy Pizza

Here is a healthy alternative to a standard pizza. We have used a plain tortilla wrap, added a small number of ingredients and within 15 minutes from start to finish have prepared a delicious meal.

Be adventurous – change up the toppings – once you have the wrap as a base and a tomato puree on top, the rest is up to you.

  • Try a wholemeal or seeded wrap
  • Have the kids make their own
  • What about some cooked ham, cherry tomatoes and finish with large handful of rocket as the pizza comes out of the ove
  • top with left-over roast chicken shredded finely with  some sliced red onion

Whatever toppings you add, just remember to go use small amounts as the wrap won’t crisp on the base if the toppings are too heavy. Go easy on the cheese – use this recipe as a portion guideline.

Serve with a simple green salad which can be quickly put together while the pizza is in the oven.

 

 

Ingredients:

1 Tortilla Wrap (medium size 64g)

20g grated mozzarella cheese
Freshly ground black pepper
