We can eat pizza every night of the week, right?

Friday night pizza party normally involves a call to the local pizzeria, which inevitably means a large dent in the bank account. You can resist the urge, but Friday doesn’t feel quite the same without a pizza. Luckily, @counting_zaros is here to save our bank accounts, macros and provide us with a tasty dinner for the weekend.

And better yet, it’s entirely personalisable. If you’re partial to pineapple on pizza, then know we’re judging you, you can add it on after you’ve made the base, along with whatever other strange topping concoctions you have in mind.

Servings
Serves 1

Ingredients

For the base:

  • 65g plain flour
  • 100g low fat Greek yoghurt
  • 3g baking powder

For the toppings:

  • 25g BBG sauce
  • 80g low fat mozzarella cheese
  • 20g shredded ham
  • 25g shredded beef
  • 10g pizza pepperoni

Instructions

1.

First preheat your oven to 180 degrees, so that it’s ready to go.

2.

Next sift the flour and baking powder into a mixing bowl and give a quick whisk.

3.

Add Greek yoghurt and stir until a dough is formed.

4.

Roll out your dough between two sheets of lightly sprayed baking paper, pinch the outside over to create the “crust” and place in the oven for 5-6 minutes.

5.

Once the crust is browned, remove from oven and add toppings of choice. For me, this was barbecue sauce, low fat mozzarella cheese, ham, pepperoni and shredded beef.

6.

Bake again for fiveish minutes (keep an eye on it) then dig in once cooked.
