I’m on a real health kick at the moment, and I’m keeping my diet as clean as possible which means cutting out the refined carbs like white bread, pasta and potatoes and swapping them for complex carbs and whole grains. The only problem is, I have a real love affair with pizza. I always make my own from scratch which isn’t as bad a shop-bought options, but those pizza crust calories can really add up and if you’re trying to drop a few pounds like I am, it can be a no-no. I’m not the kind of person that thinks you have to give up what you like to be healthy, everything in life has it’s loopholes and I’ve found the loophole of the pizza world.
Enter the pizza roll! These babies are tasty, fresh, completely customisable and one wrap (if you follow the video) will come in at around 200 calories which means it’s a guilt free option for lunch. Who says you can’t have your
cake pizza and eat it?
To make these you will need:
Wraps/tortillas – I used Rye wraps which are thinner but come in at 69 calories. You can use whatever you like but it’s best to stick to brands with as few ingredients as possible!
Mozzarella cheese – I recommend using grated for this recipe and use 20g. If you are watching your weight make sure you weigh this as overloading on cheese takes these from healthy to coronary.
Veggies – I used a quarter of a bell pepper, half a red onion and two tablespoons of sweetcorn.
Oregano for that authentic pizza taste, chilli flakes (optional) and black pepper to season.
