Ingredients

  • 1 ½ cups self raising flour
  • 1 cup Greek yogurt - I’m using non fat
  • Pinch of salt
  • Extra flour for dusting

Pizza toppings

  • ½ can Italian peeled tomatoes (or store bought pizza sauce)
  • 1 teaspoon olive oil
  • 10 mushrooms sliced
  • 50 g kalamata olives halved
  • 100 g marinated artichokes sliced
  • ¼ red onion sliced
  • 100 g bocconcini mozzarella halved
  • 1 tablespoon basil pesto (optional)

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 200°C/400°F
  • Add the flour, Greek yogurt and salt in a bowl and mix together with a spoon to form a ball. It's also easier to use your hands to help.
    Transfer dough to a table or kitchen bench top. Dust with flour and knead for a few minutes until a smooth consistency is achieved. If it's too wet or sticky, sprinkle with a little more flour until it's easier to knead
  • Dust the dough with flour and using a rolling pin or bottle of wine, roll the dough to form a thin round pizza shape
    It should be approximately 32 cm in diameter. Dust flour along the way to help roll it out
    Carefully transfer the dough to an oven tray lined with a baking sheet
  • Add a layer of pizza sauce to the centre, leaving the outside rim for the pizza crust. Add all your toppings, except for the mozzarella and pesto
  • Put in the oven for 12 - 15 minutes until the base has browned and looks cooked
    Add the mozzarella and put back in the oven for a further 4-5 minutes until the cheese has melted
    Remove from oven and to serve dollop over some fresh Basil Pesto, and enjoy your easy peasy Protein Pizza!
