When you’re on a diet, it seems impossible to re-create your favorite foods in a non-fat or low-fat version. Well if you are a pizza lover, don’t fret. With just a few quick ingredients, you can make a tasty treat which will have your taste buds dancing without your waistline bursting. Read on to learn how to make a non-fat pizza.
Purchase your non-fat ingredients at the grocery store. Many breads that you'd want to use for a pizza base (like a pita or English muffin) have very little fat in them. When it comes to the tomato sauce, the fat content can vary. Look for a tomato sauce that is simply made of fresh tomatoes, herbs and spices. Avoid any tomato sauce with olive oil. Finally, when it comes to cheese, nothing could be easier. In the refrigerated section of the grocery store, next to the mozzarella cheese, you will find low-fat and even fat-free versions.
Spoon a small amount of sauce on to the bread product you have chosen. A healthy dollop in the center is just fine. Then, using the back of your spoon spread the sauce to the edge of the bread using a circular motion with your spoon.
Sprinkle a good amount of mozzarella cheese onto your pizza.
Add fresh vegetables as toppings to your nonfat pizza recipe. Mushrooms, red peppers, green peppers, squash, red onion, fresh basil, fresh oregano and even spinach are popular additions.
Place your non-fat pizza recipe in the toaster oven (on a piece of foil) and watch it cook. The optimal amount of time is 3 to 6 minutes at about 400 degrees until the cheese is golden brown. (Remember you are not cooking the dough in this recipe.) Allow the pizza to cool for a couple of minutes and it is ready to serve.
