Postcards from the Veg: Pizza

Vegetarian pizza is a pretty obvious choice for us newbie veggies. We still get all the flavour without having to sacrifice much or work with foreign ingredients.

Veg pizza

So NOT rabbit food.

But this pizza is special. I learnt the recipe when I joined WeightWatchers and I haven’t made a different pizza since. Although, I have become far more liberal with my toppings and serving sizes. Shh…

Instead of buying pizza bases or painstakingly making them yourself, you can make this pizza on a tortilla wrap. Fancy, neh?

It produces the most wonderful, light base and the flavours just tend to ‘pop’ that much more as a result.

Enough with the sales talk. Here’s the recipe, make it yourself and then report back.


Vegetarian WeightWatchers Pizza
Serves 2
2 tortilla wraps, preferably wholewheat
2 tbs tomato paste
2 tsp crushed garlic
1 tomato, sliced
1 green pepper, sliced
1 onion, sliced
1 cup  of sliced mushrooms
1/2 avo, sliced
1 cup of grated cheeze, preferably mozzarella but I use whatever’s in the fridge
Salt and pepper to taste

Preheat the oven to 220ºC.

Smear the tomato paste and garlic on the tortillas. Add the rest of the toppings, cheese and avo last.

Place your pizzas on a Spray ‘n Cooked oven tray.

Once the oven is smokin’ hot, put the pizzas in the oven for about 10 minutes or until it looks like you want it to look. Some like theirs crispier than others.

And don’t be shy to make yourself more than one serving. It’s too delicious not to.
