How to Make a Diet Pizza: Low-Fat Easy Recipe

Diet Pizza Recipe

I know everyone thinks they need to stay away from pizza when they are on their diet, but it is simply not the case. There are a number of piza recipes that are healthy, packed full of nutrients and low on the calories. From thin crust to thick crust to woodfired to pan pizza, nothing is off limits if it is made correctly.

Dukan Diet Pizza

The Duakn Diet has been around for years but it only just recently gained popularity after French doctor Pierre Dukan, who designed the protein-based diet, published his book The Dukan Diet in 2000.

Essentially, the diet is based on four different pillars comprised of a list of over 100 foods that can be eaten on the diet plan. The plan spans the four pillars, known as attack, cruise, consolidation and stabilization, allowing a person to eat a protein-rich diet that kick-starts the metabolism and teaches the dieter how to make healthy food choices.

How to Make a Diet Pizza: Low-Fat Easy Recipe

There are a number of pizzas that can be eaten on the Dukan and Paleo Diets, from a Margherita pizza to a thin crust pizza topped with numerous vegetables.

Luckily for any pizza lover on the Dukan Diet, there are a number of pizza recipes that stick to the diet. A recipe for a Dukan Margherita pizza is below:

Dukan Margherita Pizza Ingredients:

  • 1 egg white
  • 2 tbs oat bran
  • 2 tbs fat free cream cheese
  • 1 ts baking powder
  • 3 very thin slices of tomato
  • 1 small clove garlic, minced
  • 2-3 tbs reduced fat mozzarella
  • fresh basil

Dukan Pizza Directions:

  • Preheat oven at 450 degrees.
  • Whisk together egg white, oat bran, cream cheese and baking powder in mixing bowl.
  • Heat a pan to medium heat with cooking spray and pour in mixture. Try to form a circle about 5 inches round.
  • Cook for each side until slightly brown and a bit crispy. It is going to cook more in the oven, so make sure not to get it too crispy.
  • Top pizza with garlic, cheese, basil and tomato slices and place in oven for about 5 minutes. For crispy pizza place directly on rack.

Paleo Diet Pizza

Like the Dukan Diet, the Paleo Diet has a number of pizza recipes that follow the diet plan. With lots of toppings that can be included on the pizza, from different types of wild game and a number of fresh vegetables that can be gathered, the pizza options are almost endless on the Paleo Diet.

The following is a recipe for a Paleo Diet crust which can topped with any of the foods that follow the diet plan.

Paleo Diet Pizza Instructions:

  • 2 cups almond meal
  • 2 eggs
  • 3 tbsp olive oil
  • ¼ tsp baking soda
  • 1 tsp garlic powder

Paleo Diet Pizza Directions:

  • Preheat your oven to 350.
  • Using a spoon mix all ingredients together. Form the dough into a ball after it has become thick.
  • Lightly grease a pizza pan with olive oil and place the ball of dough in the center of the pizza pan. Using your hands, push the dough into a circle. Bake the crust for 20 minutes.
  • Remove the pizza and top with toppings and place back in the oven for an additional 20 minutes or until the toppings have browned a little.

Pizza Diet Review, Is Pizza Unhealthy On a Diet?

As shown above, eating pizza on a diet is possible and it doesn’t just have to follow your diet plan. According to Nutrition.gov, a person needs to burn about 3,500 more calories than they are consuming to burn off one pound of fat. So basically, any type of pizza can be eaten while on a diet.

Let’s say you eat a pizza that has 1,000 calories. You are going to have to burn off 4,500 calories during that day to get rid of the fat you gained from the pizza.

Whether you can eat it or not, is it also healthy? If you eat a pizza that follows your diet plan, it can be healthy, nutritious and help you lose weight. But eating any pizza you can order from a restaurant is not going to be healthy or help you lose any weight.
