Healthy Pizza Hacks You Will Love
If you want to stay healthy, there’s no reason why you can’t still enjoy a Friday night pizza with family and friends.
These healthy pizza recipes are easy to prepare and surprisingly tasty.
Whether you have a Weber BBQ, Masport or Beefeater BBQ, the bases will cook beautifully. You can cook these in advance and then add the toppings and barbeque the completed pizza later on when you want to eat it.
SUPER LOW-CARB PIZZA
This no-grain ‘pizza’ is the easiest pizza you could ever make. It contains no grains at all and simply uses salami slices as the base.
If you can, choose the largest diameter salami you can find at the deli counter and ask the assistant to slice it fairly thickly.
You will need 3-4 salami ‘bases’ per person.
pizza sauce or, for a healthier twist, make your own sauce by mixing tomato paste with a little
grated cheese of your choice
Plus, add a selection of possible toppings including: sliced or grated red onion, sliced olives, chopped capsicum, and basil leaves
- Arrange salami slices on a pizza stone or baking tray.
- Add toppings.
- Cook until toppings are well heated through and cheese has melted.
Makes 1 large pizza of around 30 cm diameter
1 cup tapioca starch
2 cups almond meal
2 free-range eggs
Large pinch unrefined salt
1 tbsp olive oil
- Mix together ingredients and form into a ball of dough.
- Place the dough in the middle of a baking tin and press out until the dough reaches the edge of the tin. You can use your hands or a small rolling pin. The base should be as thin as possible – ideally about 2 mm thick.
- Bake the base without any topping for about 15 mins until it starts to turn a little bit golden around the edges.
- Remove from the oven and add whatever toppings you want.
- Cook for another 10-15 mins.
LOW-CAL CAULIFLOWER PIZZA
What? A pizza made out of cauliflower? It doesn’t sound at all appetising but you will be very pleasantly surprised at just how delicious it is. Just be aware that the base is not crunchy as a normal pizza would be.

- Tip chopped cauliflower onto a clean tea towel.
- Wrap tea towel securely around cauliflower and squeeze tightly to get as much liquid out as you can.
- Tip cauliflower into a large bowl and mix in remaining ingredients.
- Press mixture onto a lined pizza tin
- Cook for around 20 minutes until base starts to brown.
- Add whatever toppings you would like and heat for a further 10 minutes.
