Lo-Dough has done it again. You can now have a filling, indulgent cheesy pizza for less than 400 calories, by swapping your usual pizza base for a Lo-Dough base. Because Lo-Dough gives you leeway...
What's a Lo-Dough pizza base?
Like any other base you can buy in the supermarket, only instead of heavy, stodgy bread which is full of carbs (and calories), it is a wonderful, unique, healthy alternative. At just 39 calories per pizza base, it's nothing short of a revolution in the slimming and fitness world.
Quattro Formaggi translates to mean 4 cheese - traditionally a blue cheese (often gorgonzola), mozzarella, parmesan and a soft creamy cheese - all of which can be enjoyed on a pizza for fewer calories than ever before.
For the Lo-Dough version, we've stuck pretty true to that, just swapping out the soft cheese, for some Eatlean Protein Cheese, which is low fat and high in protein. You can absolutely opt for a supermarket, low fat cheese without having to buy specific products, and will get a similar result.
Tips on how to use Lo-Dough?
Lo-Dough is so versatile that it's worth reading up on the many, many things you can do with it, as well as just use it as a pizza base. Take a look at the ultimate guide to using Lo-Dough for assistance, or check our the FAQ section.
Method1. Preheat your oven to 250°C/475F/Gas 9
2. Spray the fry-light into the pan and fry off your Lo-Dough to add some colour to the base
3. Put the browned Lo-Dough onto your cooking mesh/grill bars/pizza stone/air-fryer stand and spoon the pizza sauce over, making sure to spread it right to the edge.
4. Add the 4 cheeses on top, distributing as evenly as possible.
5. Bake in your oven for 7 - 10 minutes, or until golden and bubbling. Serve straight away with a crack of black pepper over the top.
Top Tip: If you feel you like your base could be crispier when it comes out, try adding back to a hot, dry frying pan for 8-10 seconds and remove with a spatula.
