Our nutritionist says:

Pizza is often seen as unhealthy, but by using wholegrain flour and low-fat toppings it can be a nutritious and filling dish. Adding vegetables to the topping is an easy way to get at least two of your recommended five a day


For the base

  • ½ teaspoon (2.5ml) of dried yeast
  • Pinch of salt
  • Pinch of superfine sugar
  • 500ml whole-wheat flour
  • 2 teaspoons (10ml) of olive oil
  • 170ml warm water

For the sauce:

  • 400g tinned or fresh chopped tomatoes
  • 2 tablespoons (30ml) of tomato puree
  • 1 onion, chopped
  • 2 garlic cloves, finely chopped
  • Dried herbs (e.g. oregano, thyme, sage)

Toppings of your choice:

  • Mozzarella, mushrooms, olives, peppers


  1. Put the dry ingredients in a bowl and mix thoroughly.
  2. Make a well in the middle and add half the oil and the water. Beat until you have a thick dough. Knead with your hands for about ten minutes.
  3. Place the dough in a greased bowl, cover and leave in a warm place for an hour.
  4. Punch the dough with your hands and roll it out into a large flat circle. Heat the rest of the oil in a saucepan and add the onion and garlic.
  5. Cook for a few minutes and add the tomatoes, puree and herbs. Heat until the sauce has thickened slightly.
  6. Spread over the pizza base and add toppings of your choice. Bake at 400°F (200°C) for 15 minutes. Serve with a green salad.
