Healthy Pizza

Healthy food doesn’t have to be boring! You can make healthy alternatives to the foods you already love to eat to decrease the temptation and enjoy a healthier lifestyle. Before you can make a healthy pizza, you need a healthy crust. This gluten free recipe is rather easy to complete and it’s the basis for the other healthy pizza recipes.

Gluten Free Pizza Dough Ingredients:
Gluten Free Pizzz

Two Large White Potatoes
One tablespoon of olive oil
1/3 cup of warm water
one cup white rice flour
kosher salt
one large egg white
two teaspoons of agave syrup
1/2 cup tapioca starch

Preparation: Cook the potatoes in lightly boiling water for about twenty-five minutes. Wait for the potatoes to cool then peel and then force them through a ricer or strainer over a large bowl. Mix the agave, yeast and 1/3 cup of water into a small bowl and stir. Permit the mixture to set for 3-5 minutes or until a foam forms on the surface. In a separate dish, mix in the rice flour, potatoes and salt and begin to mix everything on medium speed. Add in the egg white and oil and continue to mix for another three minutes. Slowly pour in the tapioca flour with the agave and yeast mixture into the dough until it’s evenly stirred. Tightly cover the bowl with plastic wrap for about 1 1/2 hours. The dough will increase in size and then it’s ready to use. The recipe is enough to make two pizzas.

Mushroom and Spinach Pizza Ingredients:
Spinach Mushroom Pizza

8 ounces of sliced mushroom
1 minced garlic clove
1 ounce of spinach leaves
1 teaspoon of olive oil
1 1/2 ounce of provolone
2 ounces of tomato paste

Preparation: After preheating your oven to 450 degrees, coat a twelve-inch non-stick pan with cooking spray and heat it over a medium flame. Add the garlic, mushrooms and olive oil and allow them to sauté for about five minutes. Add the spinach leaves and allow everything to simmer for about three more minutes. Heat the pizza crust the for about four minutes before removing it from the oven and adding the tomato paste. You should then add the spinach and mushrooms, spreading them out evenly. Cover the toppings in the provolone and return the pizza to the oven. Bake for about ten more minutes, and then remove it from the oven. Let the pizza cool for about five minutes and cut it into eight slices. Each slice is about 120 calories so feel free to get full.

Healthy and Supreme

It’s even possible to make a healthy supreme pizza, but it takes a little imagination. Replace pork pepperonis with turkey. Instead of sausage, use seasoned ground beef. If you use 2% cheese you can reduce the caloric content without sacrificing taste. All the other toppings are usually vegetables, so you can simply pile them on. Once you have the healthy pizza dough recipe down, you can use an abundance of healthy toppings such as cucumbers, olives and even tomatoes. Be creative and you can continue to eat pizza without feeling guilty.
