Salty Seafood Pizza

 

 

For a quick and easy seafood delight, this recipe brings king prawns and salty anchovies into the spotlight with a fraction of the expected calories.

Chocolate Dessert Pizza

Napoli Style Margherita

 

 

Coming in at only 193 calories for the whole pizza, this melt in your mouth Margherita should seriously be illegal.

Moroccan Lamb Flatbread 

 

 

The recipe uses harissa paste on the base and lamb mince cooked down in stock and spices as a topping. Dress with low-fat yoghurt and herbs.

Veggie Bianca Pizza

 

 

Up in the north of Italy they make pizza a little differently. Instead of the more commonly found tomato-sauce base, they use a white sauce usually comprising of crème-fraîche and gruyère cheese, with meat and veg on top. We challenged ourselves to come up with a low-calorie slimmers version and thanks to both the Lo-Dough and the cottage cheese/quark base, it comes in at 210 calories for the lot.

This is quite possibly the lowest carb pizza ever made. Listen up low carb and keto dieters - this pizza is made of the stuff of dreams.

Carbonara Pizza

 

 

Carbonara is one of the quintessential Italian pasta dishes - famous the world over. As with any dish that has travelled, it has grown and evolved over the years, with additional ingredients like cream, garlic and vegetables being added to the original recipe of eggs, guanciale (cured pig cheek - though pancetta is an acceptable replacement) and cheese. It originated in Rome and many die-hard Romans would most likely turn up their noses at anyone altering the original, but rules are made to be broken.

The Lo-Dough Sloppy Joe

 

 

That's not to mention low-calorie and high-fibre too. Another great example of Lo-Dough giving you the key to healthier versions of your favourite pizzas.

Pissaladiere - A Southern French Classic

 

 

Rich, salty olives and anchovies on a base of super-sweet, slow-cooked onions - this is the kind of dish that goes down very nicely with a cold rosé or a glass of fizz! Unsurprisingly then, this dish hails from Nice in the south of France. Whereas the original uses an almost deep-dish style dough (bringing with it masses of carbs and calories), ours replaces this with Lo-Dough, making the whole thing lighter and healthier, without compromising on flavour. As ever, thanks to the high fibre content of Lo-Dough, you will feel satiated and satisfied.

The Lo-Dough Pepperoni Pizza

 

 

What pizza lover doesn't love a pepperoni pizza? This American classic has stood the test of time since it's arrival on to the dining scene in the early 20th century and is now more popular than ever as a takeaway favourite. In the USA, Americans annually consume pepperoni on 36% of all pizzas produced there!

Seafood & Caper Berry Pizza

 

 

This one is a must for seafood and fish lovers - low-fat fish and seafood, salty caper berries and plenty of cheese and tomato, as ever. Muscles, prawns, chunks of white fish and even some hidden anchovies (added under the cheese), this one is as tasty as it is good for you.

Low-Carb Pumpkin Pizza with Autumn Veg

 

 

Nobody loves a traditional cheese and tomato pizza more than the team at Lo-Dough, but this autumn why not try something a little different - you'll be surprised just how good it tastes! Instead of the usual tomato passata, make yourself some roast pumpkin (or butternut squash) puree and spread that across your Lo-Dough base for a little something different, but still low-calorie and low-carb.

Low-Carb Christmas Pizza

 

 

Turkey, stuffing, pigs in blankets and even sprouts (yes, sprouts!) on a pizza? You'd better believe it - Christmas is nearly upon us! This is not just novelty for novelty's sake - it's a totally delicious combination that will put a Christmas spring in your step.

Hoisin Duck Pizza

 

 

It shouldn't work, but it just does... sweet and fragrant hoisin sauce, duck, spring onion and (lightly pickled) cucumber all on top of a cheesy pizza! Some mash-ups are worthy of the suspicion they are treated with, but trust us, this one is brilliant.

Low-Calorie Deep Dish Pizza

 

 

The Lo-Dough version of the stateside-pizza sensation has landed and Oh. My. God. is it delicious! In America, it's the source of much controversy - many New Yorkers refusing to even acknowledge that it even counts as a pizza. As far as we are concerned, this is just another stitch in pizza's rich tapestry. If you like sauce then you are in luck - this creation holds plenty of it, along with sausage meat, mushrooms and a hidden layer of melted cheese underneath.

Slimming-Friendly Fajita Pizza

 

 

Another mashup pizza - but this one made with slimmers in mind (though frankly - all that protein will suit the fitness community mighty fine too!). We'd spent the day looking at a few fajita comparisons (Lo-Dough vs Supermarket fajita wraps. Spoiler alert: We won hands down!) and had a little bit of leftover fajita mix left. Well, at Lo-Dough, leftovers is never a dirty word and in this case, we immediately headed in the directions of pizza!

Poutine Pizza (Chips, Cheese and Gravy!)

 

 

No, no, we haven't gone über-northern on you! This is actually a Canadian favourite - Poutine. It is though, as the headline above says, chips, cheese and gravy on a pizza and it is exactly as delicious as it sounds. It probably wouldn't look out of place in a takeaway north of the Midlands either!

Baked Hummus & Feta Flatbread

 

 

This middle-eastern style flatbread (you might think of it a bit like a hummus pizza!) is a super-tasty, high-fibre dish and hits all the flavour notes you'd want in a meal. Serve alongside a zingy veg-packed salad (perhaps with a harissa dressing) for a well-balanced, nutritious dinner.

The 170 Calorie Ham & Mushroom Pizza

Use some quality Wiltshire ham with garlic and herb infused mushrooms, or mushrooms of your choice depending on your taste. Either way, even vaguely following this outstanding low calorie pizza recipe will result in a healthy eating revolution on your plate.
