Healthy Tortilla Pizza (Vegan, Low Fat, Gluten Free)

Healthy Recipes - What if I told you this delicious, flavourful, spicy, cheezy, crispy-based pizza was only 180 calories, low in fat and 2 of your ‘5 a day’? Well, it is! And it’s one of the best pizzas I’ve had too.


You’ll Need:


  • 1 low-fat tortilla wrap gluten-free, if needed
  • Arrabiata sauce or plain tomatao sauce see recipe below or use a low-fat shop bought version
  • Fresh basil chopped finely
  • optional 2 heaped tbsp nutritional yeast
  • optional 1 cal extra virgin olive oil spray
  • 1/4 red onion sliced
  • 1/4 courgette diced
  • Mixture of bell peppers sliced
  • 1 clove of garlic minced

QUICK ARRABIATA SAUCE:

  • 1/4 cup tinned tomatoes or passata
  • 1/2 tsp dried chilli flakes
  • 1 clove garlic
  • Fresh basil

Instructions:


  1. Preheat the oven to 190c / 375f and make sure you have a grill rack or pizza tray (so the pizza can cook underneath).
  2. Make a quick arrabiata sauce by mixing the tomatoes, chilli flakes, garlic and basil together in a food processor until smooth.
  3. Top the wrap with 2-3 tbsp of the arrabiata sauce and mix in with the nutritional yeast.
  4. Heat a frying pan to medium heat and lightly cook the onion, courgette, peppers and garlic until softened, using a splash of water or a low-cal olive oil spray.
  5. Arrange the vegetables on top of the wrap and transfer to the oven using a spatula.
  6. Cook for 10-12 minutes, turning if necessary to ensure even cooking, until the edges are golden brown and crispy.
  7. Top with some fresh basil.
  8. Serve hot or cold. Keeps in the fridge for 1-2 days, covered.
