Yes! You read that right!

While lurking on my favourite foodie YouTube accounts, I came across a dude who was making pizzas with tortillas as the base. It had never occurred to me before, and since I’ve been craving pizza like a bloody maniac for weeks, I wanted to give it a go.  So I hauled Chris into the kitchen and THEY TURNED OUT AMAZINGLY. They only take about 15 minutes to make AND cook, and they’re so low in calories. I wanted to share my version of the recipe with you guys, just in case you also need to satisfy those pizza cravings without ingesting enough calories to power a buffalo.

You will need:
Wholemeal tortilla wraps
Tin of chopped tomatoes
Low-fat grated cheese
Mixed salad leaves
+ whichever pizza toppings float your boat (I used low-ish fat options like chicken breast, sweetcorn, salami and loooooots of onion)

~ Whack up your oven to the highest it’ll go, which is usually about 240C
~ Grab your tortilla as your pizza base, smooth over the chopped tomatoes and the juice they’re in as your tomato base
~ Add your choice of toppings as you like. I usually put the cheese on last because it helps to glue the toppings to the the pizza.
~ Throw it in the oven on the middle shelf until the cheese has melted and the tortilla edges have turned a golden brown. This literally only took about 7-8 minutes!
~ Sprinkle the mixed salad leaves on top for an Insta-worthy plate of deliciousness.

It’s one of the easiest and least-messy dinners I’ve made for a while. There are no pans to worry about, and it’s on the table 15 minutes after you’ve decided you’re hungry. I’m terrible when it comes to evening meals; I can’t plan ahead, so I realise I’m starving suddenly and make a beeline for the chocolate and crisps. The best part is, there’s so few calories in this that it’s guilt free.

All in all, I calculated my entiiiiire pizza to be 306 calories. Compared to a single slice of my beloved Chicken BBQ Ranch pizza from Dominoes, which would cost me 362 calories. ‘Tis a no-brainer! Give it a go; not only is it really fun, but they taste really really good. And for all my students out there, it’s far cheaper than ordering a pizza. You don’t end up paying £1 for extra onion and then NOT GET GIVEN EXTRA ONION AHEM DOMINOES I’M LOOKING AT U.

Lots of love,
