Pizza is often associated with a dough full of cheese, salami and fatty sauces. The feeling of heaviness in the stomach after such a recreational meal stays with us for a long time. And what if we give you tips and a recipe for a lean version of pizza, which can be a balanced meal, eaten as part of lunch or dinner without feeling heavy on the stomach and remorse?
The basis of the pizza is the dough. In classic Neapolitan pizza, the dough consists only of flour, yeast, salt and water. It is worth paying attention to its thickness. Pizza on a thin bottom – less calories, so we can eat more pieces in one meal!
The key to slimming the pizza, in addition to the dough, is also the right choice of toppings. They are mainly responsible for its caloric content! Selecting the type of cheese and controlling the amount added can greatly change the fat content of a pizza. It’s worth replacing the classic mozzarella ~ 260kcal / 100g with its light version ~ 160kcal / 100g!
More does not mean better! Pizza does not have to be filled with cheese to the brim, on the contrary, for pizza LESS IS BETTER (and it is not only about its calorific value, but the TASTE)! Remember: real Italian pizza doesn’t contain too many of them.
So, not only the selection of products, but also their quantity makes the pizza become a caloric bomb.
