Healthy Pizza Recipe

Like a lot of people, I love pizza. But I also like to eat as healthy as I possibly can. Today for lunch I decided to make a healthy version of pizza in an attempt to see if I could eat my favourite dish without going crazy. Read on to see how I did.

The Ingredients

  • 1Tsp olive oil.
  • 1tbsp Tomato Purée
  • 1 Large wrap
  • 1 Large Tomato
  • 1 egg.

Now this dish isn’t vegan friendly due to the egg but it could be if an alternative food source is used. I also did not use any cheese in this recipe. It’s a very handy dish as it only has five ingredients and is quick to make.

The Method:

  • First of all, I preheated my oven to 180C/336F.
  • I then spread the olive oil onto the wrap evenly. Then I placed my wrap into the oven for 3 minutes approximately to heat up the wrap.
  • While my wrap was cooking, I chopped my tomato into large pieces before mixing some tomato purée into it. (If you’d prefer to chop the tomato finely you can, I was just far too lazy.)
  • I take the wrap out of the oven and spread the tomato mix all over it, although I make sure no big chunks are left in the middle of the wrap.
  • I then cracked my egg on top of the tomato.
  • I then place the wrap back into the oven and allow it to cook for ten minutes. (Alternatively you can leave it in the oven until the egg itself is set.)
  • Voila. Quick and simple, my pizza is ready!!

My Thoughts:

Now I know that the above picture is not the most well taken or aesthetically pleasing piece of photography. I’m not a great decorator so food I make tend to taste better than how they look. I was very surprised at how much I enjoyed eating this pizza. I usually don’t like foods where tomato is the dominant taste but this time I felt like it was a nice meal. However without the egg, I probably wouldn’t have enjoyed the food as much as I did. I will definitely be making this dish again as it took 20 altogether to make which is perfect in my busy everyday life. I do personally prefer a dominos pizza but when trying to be healthy, I can’t really complain!!

Tasty but healthy omelette

I’m the type of girl who LOVES ( hence the upper case letters) to cook in my spare time. There’s nothing better than making your own food and knowing exactly what is in it. I love to try new recipes and I hope to share ones that I find and like every now and again with my followers. Recently I’ve been thinking about Spanish style omelette’s. I would not be a huge fan of omelette’s because I find them quite plain a lot of the time but I decided to try and make a healthy omelette that had a lot of taste. Basically what I made was an omelette with lots of vegetables and potatoes added to it. I love eating fruit but I would not be a big vegetable eater. I like sweet things like a lot of people do. As you can see below I used two tomatoes, an onion, a pepper , two potatoes, cheese, cashew nuts and three eggs. I was going to add some ham as well but I ended up forgetting to put it in so this recipe is okay for lacto vegetarians to make and eat.  I used no salt or seasoning in this recipe and with all of the different tastes the ingredients offer, I didn’t need them anyway.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Ingredients:

 

  • Two potatoes
  • One pepper
  • Two tomatoes
  • One onion
  • Cheese
  • A couple handfuls of Cashew nuts.
  • Three eggs

Method:

  

This recipe is very easy to make. You start off by chopping up all pf the vegetables, grating the cheese and then you fry the potato chunks until they are a golden colour. Once you have that done, you add the diced onions and sauté them for five minutes. Next you add your tomatoes and peppers. It’s all very simple and you don’t have to wait a long time to put them all in.  Lastly you throw your cashew nuts into the pan and let them fry.


Next you get your eggs ready. Crack your eggs into a separate jug and add your cheese in. Then throw all of your vegetables in as well, once it’s all mixed in, pour the mixture into a saucepan and allow it to cook until the mixture has no gooiness left.
