Not that I was ever a huge pizza eater but I do miss pizza at times, more so on a Friday night when you have had a tough week and a bit of laziness is in order Even then I would always order the most healthiest one on the menu. Is that possible?
We had pizza at work today and I ate my salad happily but when I went shopping for dinner i thought yep pizza is what we are having as it has been so long!
A yummy healthy alternative using whole meal flat bread, to me It’s just what you want in a pizza. A thin crunchy base, sweet rich tomato sauce and yummy fresh toppings packed full of goodness and flavour and surprisingly filling!
What you need
Wholemeal flat bread (Lebanese bread)
Pizza sauce (I used a organic pizza/pasta sauce)
Olive tapenade (adds a sensational lift and great flavour)
Sliced red capsicum
Roasted butternut pumpkin*
Hummus to serve recipe here
* Cube 1/2 a Butternut pumpkin and sauté in a pan with olive oil,salt, pepper and rosemary until soft and caramelised. set aside to cool
What you do
Prepare all your ingredients and have them ready to go. Preheat your oven to around 180 degrees celsius
Place a flat bread onto a pizza tray or plate suitable for oven cooking. Place three big spoonfuls of tomato sauce into the middle of your base and around 1 tsp of olive tapenade, use a spatula to spread evenly all over your base. Add your toppings starting with spinach but try not to overload as it will be to heavy and your pizza will flop. I like a light covering of topping to let that base crisp up nice and good. You will be surprised how a little of everything is quite substantial.
Cook for around 7 mins keeping a eye it does not burn. Remove from oven and top with rocket and dollops of hummus slice and enjoy with a good glass of White wine, Pinot Grigio for me please
