In an previous article we had presented Black Bean burger which is a healthy recipe containing good amount of fiber. Here is another one. I found this recipe on the web and thought about sharing it with you. I modified it a little bit to suit the audience of this web site. This recipe is of a Pizza which is healthy. Yes you read it right. A HEALTHY pizza. This pizza is healthy since it has lots of protein and fiber and minimal quantity of carbohydrates. The crust of the pizza alone contains around 50 grams of protein and adding other meat toppings add more protein.
3/4 cup Flax Seed powder
1 scoop unflavored Whey Protein
1 teaspoon Baking Powder
1/2 teaspoon Sea Salt
1 teaspoon Oregano
1/2 tablespoon of Stevia (Natural sugar. This is optional)
2 tablespoons Olive oil
1/4 cup Water
Whole crust has 4 grams of effective carbohydrates, 26 grams fiber, 49 grams protein, 65 grams healthy fats, and 745 calories.
Preheat oven to 425
Mix the Flax seed powder, Whey protein powder, Baking Powder, Sea salt, Oregano and Stevia thoroughly so that it becomes a homogeneous mixture.
Add Eggs, Olive oil and water to the above mixture and make a paste. Mix very well. If required add little bit of water to make a consistent paste.
Let the paste sit for about 5 minutes to thicken.
Spread the paste on pan into a round 12 inch pie evenly. Make sure that the thickness is even all over the pie.
Bake for 15-17 minutes until cooked and then add toppings and cook until they are done.
You can spread a thin layer of 100% organic, salt-free, tomato sauce. Also fat free cottage cheese can be added. Although it is an unusual idea but it really does taste fine and it’s super healthy because of its rich protein content.
Usual toppings can include Chicken breast, Onions, Mushrooms, Ground Turkey, Olives and Pineapple chunks. You can also try Capsicum or other large green Chilies. To add more protein add topping with a can of Tuna.
Usually grilled Chicken will taste better but Tuna contains more protein.
