Healthy pizza at home: Here’s how
To prepare the base you will need the following ingredients:
- 1 ½ cup cottage cheese or cream cheese
- 4 eggs
- 200g grated Gouda
- 30g ground almonds or 2 tablespoons flour
Mix all the ingredients together into a kind of dough.
You can vary the topping as you wish. In this recipe we used the following ingredients:
- 1 red bell pepper finely chopped
- 1 red onion finely chopped
- a handful of spinach leaves
- 1 package lean ham cubes
Tuna or boiled ham are also good for the shaker pizza.
Are you vegetarian? Leave out the meat and simply add more vegetables, such as zucchini, corn or mushrooms.
Now mix all the remaining ingredients, except for the finely chopped onions and the diced ham, with the cottage cheese and egg mixture and season the mixture to your personal taste, for example with salt, pepper and oregano. Pizza seasoning is also good.
Then spread the dough on a baking sheet and smooth it out. Now top the base with onions and diced ham and bake the pizza in the preheated oven for about 35 minutes at 200 degrees. It’s done when the edges start to brown.
Depending on the topping and quantity, the pizza has between 500kcal and 700kcal and is very rich in protein thanks to the cottage cheese, which makes it feel full for a long time and still doesn’t feel heavy on the stomach.
Perfect for anyone who needs something quick, but who doesn’t want to do without healthy meals.
