With the current situation, everyone at home confined by the coronavirus (COVID-19) and desperate children without knowing what to do, time can no longer be an excuse to get down to work in the kitchen. It is the opportunity to cook , to invest time in the kitchen and involve and involve the little ones or any companion you have at home. Don’t you think? One of the foods that are most often liked and desired are pizzas. So here I want to give you 4 ideas of healthy homemade pizzas so that you are encouraged to try.
HEALTHY WHEAT FLOUR PIZZA
Ingredients for healthy wheat flour pizza (1 portion): 60g of whole wheat flour (oats, wheat…), 3 tablespoons of natural yogurt, 1 tablespoon of olive oil, salt and oregano to taste.
Preparation of homemade wheat pizza: Mix all the ingredients in a bowl until a homogeneous dough is left. You can help yourself by adding more flour to give it the shape and thus prevent it from sticking. Put the dough on a parchment paper. Bake at 170 ° for 10-12 minutes.
HOMEMADE BONIATO PIZZA
Ingredients for the homemade sweet potato dough (2 servings): 300g of sweet potato, 1 egg, salt, spices to taste (basil and oregano).
Ingredients for the healthy sweet potato pizza (2 servings): crushed natural tomato, 1/2 zucchini, 3-4 large mushrooms, 1 handful of arugula, 100g ricotta cheese (max. 6% fat), 50g smoked salmon, onion powder, oregano and rosemary.
Preparation of the sweet potato pizza: Preheat the oven to 180ºC. Wash the sweet potato and roast it in the oven or in the Lékuè. Use once it is done, cut it and let it cool. Put it in the blender glass, add the egg, salt and spices to taste and blend until a homogeneous dough is left.
Place parchment paper on the baking sheet and spread the dough trying to make it thin. Bake for 15 minutes at 170ºC with heat up and down until lightly browned. While the dough is being made, wash the vegetables and cut them into thin slices. When the dough is done, start putting the ingredients starting with the tomato sauce . Add the spices you want and put it in the oven for about 10 minutes.
HEALTHY BANANA PIZZA “PATACON”
Ingredients for the healthy banana dough (2 servings): A plantain, salt and spices (basil and oregano)
Ingredients for the homemade banana pizza (2 servings): Patacón, avocado, tomato, onion, 2 eggs, Smoked salmon (low in salt), salt, lemon juice, cumin and oregano
Making healthy banana pizza: Peel a ripe banana and cut it into 3-4 pieces. Boil the banana for 30 minutes with water, salt and oregano to taste. Reserve and let the different portions cool.
Turn on the oven and set it to 180ºC to preheat. Put the banana portions in a small bag (freezer bags can work well) and flatten it with 2 flat surfaces. Brown the slices of patacón in the oven for approximately 10 minutes at 170º on both sides. You can also brown it in the pan with olive oil (without having to fry it as it is done in the traditional recipe).
When you see that it is already golden, you can take it out and start filling it. A healthy filling can be made with homemade guacamole (tomato, avocado, onion, lemon juice, salt, and cumin), scrambled egg , and smoked salmon with oregano.
HOMEMADE BROCOLI PIZZA
Ingredients for the homemade broccoli dough (2 servings): 1/2 Broccoli, 1 eggs, salt or spices to taste (basil and oregano).
Ingredients for healthy broccoli pizza: crushed natural tomato, aubergine, mushrooms, arugula, mozzarella, pine nuts, onion powder, oregano.
Preparation of healthy broccoli pizza: Turn on the oven and set it to 180ºC so that it is preheated. Start by cleaning the broccoli well. Cut it into small pieces and grind it until it has a grainy texture and consistency similar to rice. In a bowl, add: the crushed broccoli, the egg, the salt and the spices to taste. Stir it well until it becomes a more or less compact dough.
On the oven tray, place the greaseproof paper and put the dough making the shape you want. The finer it is, the crunchier it will be. Bake the dough for about 10 minutes at 170 ° until lightly browned. I advise you to keep an eye on the time and temperature, each oven is different. Let the dough bake for 10 minutes, turn it over to bake another 10 minutes. While the dough is being made, clean the vegetables that you are going to use as topping for the pizza well and cut them into thin slices. Try to cut the vegetables to a similar thickness , so that their cooking time is similar and they cook equally. When the dough is done, add the toppings on top . First, the tomato sauce and then the rest of the ingredients.
Lastly, you can add more spices (onion powder or oregano) and let the pizza bake again for about 10 minutes. When you see that the vegetables are done, you can take it out of the oven and you will have it ready to eat. If you don’t have broccoli or if you just want more, you can also use cauliflower to make the dough.
