This Strong Flavoured, Classic Italian Sauce Works Great On A Low-Calorie Pizza

Puttanesca sauce, from Naples is a sauce made using a whole host of strong, sharp ingredients. Anchovies, olives, capers, chilli, garlic, lemon (juice and zest) and parsley are all mixed into a passata to create what is traditionally served as a pasta sauce. Though we are sure none of the locals of Naples would be too impressed taking two of their beloved classics and combining them (Neapolitans are famously protective of their very traditional recipes), we think this works fantastically as a pizza sauce. We put some of the ingredients into the sauce and saved some to go on top. If you are missing one or two of the ingredients or don't like anchovies (for example), just leave them out... no one ingredient will make or break the recipe. 

So what about the macros? Well, this pizza is only 345 calories and 9g of carbs, but contains 24g of protein and an impressive 13.3g of fibre - just short of HALF your daily allowance.
