Top 10 Low Calorie Pizza Recipes for Weight Loss

If you’re shedding the pounds, pizza is generally a no-no, but not anymore! These pizzas actually support your slimming goals. Here’s how it’s done...

Calling all gluten free eaters, vegetarians, and meat lovers alike - pizza has been reinvented - and it’s changed how we do dieting forever. Low calorie pizza recipes may be all over the internet with various methods and dietary advice, but this is something very different indeed. Why? Because we are doing it with Lo-Dough. 

Why Lo-Dough Pizza? 

Lo-Dough is an outstandingly unique food product which has already grabbed the attention of high profile dietitians and nutritionists, not least because it’s high protein, high fibre, sugar free and an astonishing 39 calories per pizza base.

In the words of Registered Nutritionist, Bikini Competitor and Lecturer in Sports Nutrition Dr Emilia Thompson, "Lo-Dough gives you leeway". The high fibre content keeps you fuller for longer, the protein is great for those looking for post workout food, and the incredibly low calorie content means supported weight loss. Dr Thompson is a big fan of low calorie pizzas made with Lo-Dough.

Recipe 1. Ham & Mushroom Pizza 

Whole pizza: 170 calories

Ham & Mushroom Pizza

The old fashioned ham & mushroom pizza is back on the menu with this innovative recipe - a whole 9 inch pizza for 170 calories. 

This classic recipe has basically never been healthier, and it has has gone down a storm with the slimming and fitness worlds, not least because the high fibre content in the Lo-Dough base keeps you nice and full for longer, while the protein contributes to a great post-workout meal.

This is, obviously, one for the meat eaters, but bear in mind that a normal pizza with meat as part of the topping is usually one of the more calorific choices, getting this dish together for under 200 calories is a serious achievement.

  • Fat: 5.6 g
  • Carbohydrates: 3.4 g

 Recipe 2. Veggie Protein Pizza (V)

Whole pizza: 230 calories

Vegetarian low calorie pizza

Another super easy recipe which is made so much healthier using Lo-Dough as your pizza base - and a great one for the vegetarians too. Whether you are a meat eater or not, protein is an important part of your diet. One that is even more important when you are on a workout plan or hitting the gym. 

For an extra protein boost, you can use Eatlean cheese, but you could equally rustle up the veggie protein pizza with cream cheese/creme fraiche and mozzarella and it would be totally delicious. We did this one with Eatlean to cut the calories even further, but the choice is, as ever, completely yours. With a pizza weighing in at only 230 calories, perhaps you can afford to be more adventurous with the toppings - as Emilia says, "Lo-Dough gives you leeway."
