See this? It’s pizza. It’s a 10-minute healthy & easy pizza to be exact and it has 330kcal, which means you can have your pizza and eat it too. Duh…What else would you be doing with pizza? Go on a boat ride? Make scientific discoveries? Feed it to pigeons? Make experiments on rats? No, you have it, and eat it too. And for those of you who think the “dough” is zucchini, cauliflower or air – you’re wrong. It’s a hand-made tortilla that someone prepared in a factory with much care and love and sunlight. Even if that someone was a machine.
Some might call this a calzone and the Italians might spit in their face. Is it though? It’s not. It’s just a cheap trick, or HACK, for making a pizza in a pan that has almost no calories and is gluten-free and vegan. Okay, it’s not gluten-free or vegan (it’s vegetarian!), but you probably aren’t either if you’re looking for a quick pizza recipe on the internet. So let’s not be so judgy, okay?
How To Make Magic & Pizza In 10 Minutes
To make magic you need to buy a white bunny, balloons, and cards. Then watch a video on Youtube or take an online class, if you have a lot of money, are eccentric and want to make it rain.
To make this super delicious, homemade pizza (I did make it at home) you’ll need this:
- flour tortilla
- tomato paste
- dried basil
- mozzarella cheese
- zucchini (optional, but come on!)
- olive oil
Basically things you already have in your fridge, pantry and bathroom.
The process seems easy, but don’t be fooled. Making this takes a lot of skill and effort. Here are the skills you need:
- Spreading stuff over tortilla: You have to be able to spread tomato paste, olive oil and garlic over the entire tortilla surface.
- Slicing zucchini in circles. Careful, there.
- Topping things with mozzarella cheese.
- Folding. You’ll need to be able to fold the tortilla in half.
- Toasting and Flipping the tortilla. Now here I’m not kidding you, be present, careful and professional.
So I used this database to calculate the nutrition for my pizza and here are the results:
- 13g protein
- 29g carb
- 16,6g fat
- 2.5g fiber
Here’s how many calories pizza has according to Prof. Google.
I think we saved some calories, right? And we didn’t eat pizza made out of zucchini, broccoli, cauliflower or banana leaves.
You might know, I’m on a weight loss journey and eating a lot healthier now, but I do crave pizza every now and then and this totally solves all of my cravings and problems. So if you also want to eat pizza that tastes like pizza, without eating over 1000kcal for one meal – make this.
