Healthier Pizza| Tortilla Pizza

My original low cal pizza is even healthier than this version, however I am yet to perfect it, so you will just have to make do with one of my other healthy pizza recipes for the time being. Now along with cake, pizza is one of my absolute favs! If I had to live off one food for the rest of my life it would be pizza, in fact when I traveled Italy a few summers ago I had pizza everyday for 11 days… that’s a lot of pizza!

My original low cal pizza is even healthier than this version, however I am yet to perfect it, so you will just have to make do with one of my other healthy pizza recipes for the time being. Now along with cake, pizza is one of my absolute favs! If I had to live off one food for the rest of my life it would be pizza, in fact when I traveled Italy a few summers ago I had pizza everyday for 11 days… that’s a lot of pizza!
Now my love of pizza obviously doesn’t fit in well with my new healthy lifestyle… damn you Dominos! So I have been trying to find alternatives to the usual high fat and high calories pizzas you get in your takeaway or supermarket. Many of you will already know of this option, but for those of you who don’t welcome to the Tortilla Pizza!
It’s a very simple, very quick recipe. But if you have a pizza craving and are trying to eat healthy, this recipe will satisfy your craving and still be kind to your waist line. All you need are tortillas, passata/ tomato puree, mozzarella cheese and your choice of toppings.
Simply top your tortilla with your tomato base, then sprinkle mozzarella onto and then add your toppings. Place the tortilla pizza into the oven and bake for around 7-10 minutes or until the cheese has melted and the edges are browned.
Now although this isn’t the healthiest of meals, it is still a million times more healthy than your local takeaway. Just look at the nutritional content of this pizza compared to the equivalent in Dominos. By making your own Tortilla Pizza which would be ready in half the time it takes for your takeaway pizza to arrive, you could save yourself 667 calories and 34.8g of fat.
Nutritional Value for the whole pizza- 491 Calories, 27g Carbs, 28g Fat, 33g Protein, 
Dominos Small, Regular Crust, Pepperoni Passion – 1158 Calories, 104.4g Carbs, 67.8g Fat, 56.4g Protein,
Do you have any other homemade takeaway recipe equivalents that you make when you have a craving? Any other healthy pizza options that you would recommend?
