When the weekend is just around the corner, cravings for our favourite takeaways usually start to creep in. Almost any food is perfectly fine to eat in moderation, however, instead of opting for a super calorific, often carb-heavy high street takeaway, why not try to recreate your favourites yourself. Although some may argue convenience is king, by making one of these epic Lo-Dough 'Fakeaway' recipes, you can save on calories, refined carbs, and money - while keeping the indulgence sky high.
It’s no secret that one of the nation’s favourite takeaways is pizza. Pizza is often considered unhealthy due to its high-fat content and calorific toppings, however, the true calories and refined carbs lie in the base. By swapping your takeaway for a pizza made with a Lo-Dough base, you can reduce the calories and carbs by up to 90%, provide your diet with a healthy boost of fibre, and still enjoying really indulgent toppings.
Domino’s: Pepperoni Pizza
We know that the nation is passionate about pepperoni pizza. By making yours with a Lo-Dough base, you can load up on the good stuff while reducing your carb intake by over 90%.
Although we use less than 11 herbs and spices in our blend, our Southern Style Coating is perfect for that ‘Fried Chicken’ fix, without the added calories. Say hello to the perfect low carb, low fat, crispy coating.
McDonald’s: Low Carb Breakfast Stack
Complete with bacon, sausage patty, egg, cheese, and a super simple homemade hash brown - this is the ultimate breakfast stack to kick off your day. Just 10g of carbs in the whole lot!
Wagamama: Katsu Curry
Wagamama’s Chicken Katsu Curry is a talisman for takeaways and is beloved by many (including ourselves). But, by simply coating your chicken with our Southern Style Coating and swapping out the Katsu sauce with Spice ‘N’ Tice, you can cut the calories by over 60%.
Your Local Takeaway: Turkish Doner Kebab
The word kebab is frequently prefixed with the word ‘dirty’, as takeaway kebabs are often laden with fat and come with a carb-heavy naan or wrap. Not this one. You can enjoy our take on a Turkish Chicken Doner for a little over 200 calories and just 5g of carbs.
Pizza Hut: Deep Dish Veggie
The deep-dish pizza is synonymous with Chicago and thick, doughy bases. We have put a Lo-Dough spin on this icon - we’ve kept the rich, veggie filling while reducing the carbs of the base, and it’s delicious! Just 268 calories for the WHOLE pizza.
