Low Calorie Pizza

Standard

That’s a real treat

1 ball mozzarella cheese (sliced)

40 gram fresh yeast

1.5 glass flour

0.5 glass lukewarm water

3-4 tbsp olive oil

0.5 courgette thinly sliced

0.5 red pepper (sliced)

1 small tomato聽 (sliced)

1 chicken breast

3-4 tbsp ketchup

basil, oregano

Dough: mix yeast with 5 spoons of water and 0.5 tsp sugar. Add flour and water. Mix gently and add a pinch of salt (it’s better to add salt as late as possible: it kills yeast). Add 3-4 tablespoons oil olive. Knead the dough: it should be a bit loosen but not very sticky so that hands come out clean) If it is too sticky add more flour- too hard, add water. Leave covered with a tablecloth in a warm place for approx. 15 mins. It should grow. Yeasts are very delicate: they don’t like too hot, or too cold, they hate salt and they don’t like windy air! They also prefer privacy so don’t peep too often under the cloth and into the oven聽 馃槈聽 In the meantime cube the chicken and fry on a pan till golden.

Roll out the dough and bake for 10 mins in 210 Celsius . It’s good to make several holes with a fork so that it doesn’t grow too much. Smear the dough base with ketchup and add toppings; chicken, courgette, mozzarella, tomato, pepper, oregano and basil. Bake in 210 Celsius until cheese is melted and dough turns golden.

And the house smells Italy… o mamma!

p.s. goes glorious with a glass of red

Calorie count: approx. 270-300 kcal /portion (this pizza makes 4 portions but requires small habit聽 change who are used to shove 25 cm pizza at one go;聽 this pizza has quite a thick base and there’s lots of topping on it, not like one green pea per 10 cm2 . So we can say it to 3 slices of these from Pizza Hut. BTW:聽 3 slices of similar pizza in聽 Pizza Hut = 3 x 250 kcal = 700 kcal!
