When you are busy it can be very tempting to dial up for a home delivered pizza.  This can be a calorie and fat laden dinner with just 2 slices of a Domino’s Hawaiian totting up around 428 calories.
But once you get the basics right – here, that’s the dough – you can really quickly put a healthy eating dinner on the table in no time flat.  The secret to a delicious, crispy pizza is not to overload it with toppings.
Keep things simple and select 3 good quality, healthy eating ingredients that will allow the flavours to shine through.
Vegetarian Ricotta Pizza

Today we have 3 of our favourite simple pizza toppings – we would love to hear about yours in the comments section.


For the pizza dough: (makes 2)

  • 1.5 teaspoons (or one 7g sachet) of dried yeast
  • ½ teaspoon of sugar (to activate the yeast)
  • ¾ cup warm water
  • 2 cups plain flour (use wholemeal if you have it)
  • 1 pinch salt
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • ½ cup tomato paste (or make your own pizza sauce – recipe here)

Pizza 1 – Tomato, Basil, Mozzarella

  • 100g mozzarella cheese, sliced
  • 100g red ripe cherry tomatoes
  • 1/2 cup fresh basil leaves (add just before serving)

Option – add some olives, or strips of grilled capsicum
Serves: 4. Calories per serve based on one pizza with tomato paste: 252.

Pizza 2 – Ham, Pineapple and Mushroom

  • ½ cup diced leg ham off the bone
  • ½ cup diced fresh pineapple
  • 6 medium mushrooms, sliced

Option – add some low fat grated cheddar or some chilli flakes
Serves: 4. Calories per serve based on one pizza with tomato paste: 217.  Chicken Pizza-

Pizza 3 – Chicken, Feta, Olive

  • 1 cooked chicken breast, shredded
  • ½ cup crumbled low fat feta
  • ¼ cup chopped olives

Option – add some oregano or basil, and some minced garlic
Serves: 4. Calories per serve based on one pizza with tomato paste: 278.


  • Put your yeast and sugar into the warm water.  Put this in a warm spot for 10 minutes to let the yeast activate – it should look foamy on top when ready.
  • Heat up the oven to 200°C and line two baking trays with baking paper.
  • In a large bowl, combine the flour, salt, olive oil and yeast mixture.
  • Stir gently and bring it all together to form a ball of dough.
  • You may need to add more flour or water to get it to the right consistency.
  • Flour a work surface and knead the dough for two minutes until it becomes soft and elastic.
  • Rip the dough in half and roll each piece out thinly to fit the size of your trays.
  • Add the tomato paste and then your chosen toppings before baking for 15-25 minutes or until golden brown on the crusts.

Serve with a crispy green salad to add more veggies to the meal.
