Slimming World Syn Free Pizza

Syn Free HexB Pizza

So, the entire Slimming World community seemed to go into a meltdown last week after someone posted a picture of the Asda Wholemeal Bread Mix and revealed that this could be used as your HexB option on Slimming World to make pizza (as can the Aldi one and Tesco – see update below). Having had a bit of a Google, it does turn out that people have known about this amazing revelation for quite a while, I’ve found posts about it from before the Easy Extra plan was introduced, so quite why I’m only discovering this now I can’t tell you! 

However…drum roll please…I can now 100% confirm that you can indeed have completely syn free pizza on Slimming World! How exciting is that!

Using your HexB (60g of cooked bread mix) and your HexA (40g of grated Mozzarella) as well as the very delicious syn free pizza sauce that I’ve concocted, as well as whatever syn free toppings you like, you can create pizza that will not only keep you on track for weight loss, but would actually be viable if you’re doing an SP day! 


I’ve popped the recipe for the tomato sauce online too, so this recipe is going to be pretty straightforward, because at the end of the day you really just want to make pizza as quickly as possible!  You’ll need to knead your dough mix for this recipe, so if you need a few tips then head over and read my tips from the bread baking master class I went on!

    For the base
  • 500g Pack Bread Mix
  • 330ml Warm Water (this is 20ml less than the packet instructions)
  • For the sauce
  • See 'Syn Free Pizza Sauce' recipe
  • For the toppings
  • 40g Grated Mozzarella
  • Cooked Lean Bacon
  • Sweetcorn
  • Or any other toppings you fancy!


  1. Set aside two table spoons of the bread mix to use for dusting the surfaces.
  2. Pour the rest of the bread mix into a large bowl and then add the warm water.
  3. Either using a stand mix or your hands (get stuck in!) mix the two together until all of the dry mixture is combined.
  4. On a clean dry surface, dust on some of your leftover bread mix and then tip the dough onto the surface. Using the palm of your hand knead the dough, pushing it out and pulling it back in towards yourself in a stretching motion to incorporate all of the mixture and build the gluten strands up. Do this for about 5 to 10 minutes.
  5. Place the dough back in the bowl, and cover the bowl with cling film or a damp towel. Leave in a warm place until the dough has risen to about double its normal size. This should take about 35 minutes.
  6. Preheat the oven to 180 degrees.
  7. Tip the dough back out on to the surface and knead for another minute or so, and then portion it into 60g sections.
  8. Using a rolling pin, and more of your leftover bread mix to dust the surface, roll out however many pizza bases you want to make. The best way to do this is to roll using a rolling pin at first, and then stretch the pizza base using your hands. You want to get the base very thin, to get the best sized pizza possible.
  9. Individually save the leftover portions in cling film or zip lock bags and put them in the freezer for another time!
  10. Lightly dust a baking tray with some of your leftover flour, and then put your pizza bases on the baking try, using a single baking tray per base.
  11. Top your pizzas with a couple of table spoons of tomato sauce, and then sprinkle on your 40g of Mozzarella (or more if you're using Mozzarella Light). Top with whatever other toppings you've chosen.
  12. Bake in the oven for 10 minutes or until the pizza slides around when you move the baking tray, this is how you know the base is completely cooked.


This is syn free on Slimming World using the base as your HexB option and the cheese as your HexA option. Add syns if you have already eaten those.

Slimming World Syn Free Pizza


UPDATE – Slimming World have confirmed that you can definitely use Aldi & Asda mixes, the Tesco mix is generally accepted within Slimming World but there seems to be some confusion. Use whichever you feel most comfortable using, but personally I will still use the Tesco mix as looking at fibre content I can’t see any difference. This is up to your personal choice though!

    I follow slimming world and after I came across this post I got excited. Unfortunately after looking into I can confirm that the tesco bread mix is actually syned. 11 syns for 100g. And nowhere in the healthy extra b choice part of my book does it say that any kind of flour can be used. You may want to remove this to stop fellow dieters thinking they can have pizza this way
    1. Cliona

      08/04/2016 at 11:00 am

      Hi Jayne, actually there are certain wholemeal bread mixes (not individual flours) which can be used as your HexB and this has been confirmed by Slimming World. Tesco bread mix is one of these, as is the Asda one, and I think there's an Aldi one out there too that you can use. It's due to the levels of fibre used in them and this being enough to make them qualify for your HexB. Thank you for your input, but I promise you that I've looked into this a lot before posting and I can confirm that all of the information above is correct. Thank you again, Cliona

          I have just joined Sw online and have made this- it was delicious. I used the Tesco bread mix so hope it is a Hexb as can't find it anywhere on the list but I am new to all this so may not be looking in the right place. Thank you for a delicious and filling pizza . I am going to try more of your recipes now!
          1. Cliona

            13/02/2017 at 9:27 am

            Hi Cas, thank you so much for your lovely comment! I'm really pleased you enjoyed the pizza and I very much hope that you enjoy the rest of my recipes. Let me know which ones you like particularly!

        Can I ask...u use 500g of bread mix but only 60g is used as a whole pizza wud b so many syns right??
        1. Cliona

          04/04/2017 at 4:01 pm

          Hi Hayley, the recipe is for making multiple pizzas. As written above you use 60g for your one pizza and then save the rest/make up more bases as you wish :)
    2. Amanda astbury

      17/01/2017 at 6:37 pm

      You can still do the recipe but with Aldi wholemeal bread mix or Asda wholemeal bread mix as your HEXB
  • Jayne

    08/04/2016 at 1:16 pm

    I have looked on the website and the only two bread mixes that can be used as a heb option are aldi the pantry crusty wholemeal bread mix and asda chosen by you wholemeal bread mix. And these both state a 60g slice is heb, not the whole packet made up
    1. Cliona

      08/04/2016 at 1:21 pm

      Hi Jayne, as you can see in the recipe the dough once made up is portioned into 60g portions, to make sure it stays within your HexB options. The Tesco mix has also been confirmed, I just don't think it's on the app/site yet. If you're unsure though just stick to the Asda or Aldi versions to help make yourself feel comfortable. Thanks again for your input. Cliona

  • jo

    26/04/2016 at 9:33 am

    Looks great but wouldnt it be 60g of baked mix once cookeddrather than 60g of dough x
    1. Cliona

      26/04/2016 at 10:17 am

      Hi Jo, yes you're right. The only problem is that without lots of trail and error you don't know how much dough would make 60g's likely to be about 63g of wet dough but without trying lots of different bases (without toppings) I wouldn't know. Therefore to be safe, and make sure that you don't go out of your HexB range I'd stick with 60g wet dough. However, it's up to personal preference and if you'd prefer to cook more dough as the base without toppings and then weigh it and remove bits to get 60g exactly then that's absolutely fine too! Personally I like to bake my pizza with the toppings on, so I just stick with 60g wet dough and know that perhaps I'm eating 57g of cooked dough for example. Hope that helps! x

    You say the bread mix is your HexB as well as the mozzarella is HexB your only allowed on HexB a day unless your doing an SPAIN day otherwise the mozzarella would be sunned.
    1. Cliona

      26/04/2016 at 11:05 am

      Hi Ann, sorry that's meant to say HexA for Mozzarella! Changed now :) you can have one HexA and one HexB every day!

    27/04/2016 at 9:45 pm

    Hi. I couldn't find the mix in tesco when I popped in today. I saw a Wholegran flour mix but that was the closest I could find so I left it....So I'll check my local Aldi instead. It's very kind of you to go to the trouble of making this post for everyone. Thank you for your time and suggestions. I still haven't been brave enough to try that cauliflower based pizza recipe so hopefully this means I won't have to! Take care.
    1. Cliona

      28/04/2016 at 2:55 pm

      Hi Cat, hopefully Aldi will have it in for you! It's well worth making, I'm sure you'll enjoy it :) I'm so pleased you like the recipe, take care yourself too!

    Hi, do you know how much dry bread mix makes up 60g wet dough mix? I'm only making for one and don't want to make the entire packet. thanks
    1. Cliona

      03/05/2016 at 9:34 am

      Hi Louise, sorry its taken me a while to reply! I don't know exactly but I'd reckon probably about 57g. You could always do what I do and make up the rest and just freeze what you don't need in handy portions to use another time! Good luck x
  • Jade

    06/05/2016 at 4:33 pm

    Hi! Love this recipe and am currently using it. The pizza in your picture isn't a 60g one is it? Mines turned out quite small so I'm quite sad but hey ho pizzas pizza!! ? Everyone else's just look bigger than mine!!!
    1. Cliona

      06/05/2016 at 4:35 pm

      Hi Jade! Yes it is a 60g one, it's not big but I rolled it out quite thin to get as much as I could! If you want to double the size it's only an extra six syns!!! Glad you love the recipe :)

      Hi Claire, thanks very much for letting us know! I can't imagine why they would have as every Slimming World-er out there must have been flocking to buy it! Hopefully this will prompt SW to put the Tesco one on the app instead!

    18/05/2016 at 7:50 pm

    Hi, I can't tell you how excited I was to read your post!! Just one question: if i only wanted to make 1 portion of 60g when mixed, how much dry ingredients do I need?? Thanks so much Lou x
    1. Cliona

      19/05/2016 at 8:05 am

      Hi Lou, I can't tell you exactly as I haven't tried it enough like that to get an exact amount, but I saw somewhere else that someone had used 57g and got 60g in the end! Sorry I can't be more specific but hope that helps! x

    When freezing the extra portions of bread mix, do I cook 1st or freeze as dough?
    1. Cliona

      13/08/2016 at 6:47 pm

      I freeze as dough but you could do either depending on what is easiest for you. If you cook it first don't cook it all the way though, just part way and then finish as you defrost (like one of the frozen pizzas you buy! ?
  • Claire

    14/08/2016 at 12:38 pm

    Hi, when you freeze up the extra potions do you roll them out into pizza bases or keep as balls of dough?? What do you do when defrosted, can you just roll out like before? Sorry but I've never frozen dough before!!!
    1. Cliona

      14/08/2016 at 4:28 pm

      I freeze them as balls and then defrost and roll as before but you could roll them out and freeze them if you wanted to! It very much depends on your freezer space to be honest! Hope that helps X
  • Chloe

    15/08/2016 at 5:33 pm

    Hello! I tried making this today but it didnt rise around the edge and so it was more like a tortilla pizza than a normal one! I did forget to prove the dough so I portioned it and put it in the freezer for about 3mins before realising. Tookthem out, set them next to a warm over for 40mins and they grew in size. I put them back in the freezer, defosted one and put it in the fridge until I got home. Do you have any idea on what it was that I did wrong to cause the dough not to rise....the only thing I can think is that it was because it was in the freezer for a few mins or that I stored it in the fridge before using. Any advice would be great as I really want this to work!
    1. Cliona

      16/08/2016 at 11:53 am

      Hi Chloe, thanks for commenting. What may have happened is that the dough was under proved because of the time in the fridge, this would have slowed the yeast down and just meant that the dough hadn't developed enough before you cooked it. I've never had any problem with the defrosted dough if I've proved it the first time round so hopefully that will help! Let me know next time you try it! :)
      1. Courtney

        22/10/2016 at 3:15 pm

        Mine also turned out like a thin tortilla round the edges and was totally soggy and under cooked where there was sauce ? it didn't rise in the oven at all?? I proved it properly and it rose then before either knocked it back and rolled it out...any ideas???
        1. Cliona

          28/10/2016 at 11:37 am

          Unfortunately I'm not sure what the answer is! I know that the age of the packet mix can make a difference (I made a loaf of bread the other day using it that went terribly because it had been sat in my cupboard for a while!) but other than that I really don't know. The edges normally only rise a little in the oven, any area with sauce or toppings won't really rise but the edges should go up a tiny bit at least! You may have rolled it out too thin which is the only other thing I can think of. Maybe leave it a little thicker next time to give the dough something to work with :) Hope that helps!

    1. Cliona

      18/08/2016 at 8:58 am

      The base would be six syns, and then you'd have to account for the cheese too ? hope that helps!
  • Emma

    25/08/2016 at 1:20 pm

    I too found that you could use bread mix to make pizza; it was a thing of joy but my wholemeal bread mix wasn't brilliant. I will certainly mix a whole packet next time and freeze it! I will roll it out thinner too as mine was a bit c laggy! I made a pizza sauce from passata, onions, mixed herbs and garlic. I froze the rest of the sauce so that i can just whack it together when I get the urge!

    27/08/2016 at 3:47 pm

    So pleased I found your site :) I am returning to slimming world on Monday and these recipies will help me no end! Do you know if the bread mix is OK to freeze once I have made the pizza Base.. I struggle with time in the evenings after school and work and before kids clubs so I will be having to prep a lot and freeze on a weekend..
    1. Cliona

      29/08/2016 at 8:27 pm

      Hi Heather, unfortunately the sainsburys one isn't officially a HexB choice from Slimming World. However I have seen them say in the past that using an alternative isn't likely to harm you weight loss, for example when people have used unbranded versions of cheese instead of the ones that are official Healthy Extras. It's really up to you but it definitely isn't an official one. Hope that helps!

    Can you only use bread packet mixes or can you simply make a wholemeal pizza Base? My husband is a bread maker at heart so likes to do things properly!!
    1. Cliona

      01/09/2016 at 6:17 pm

      Officially Slimming a World can only confirm packet mixes as HexB because they can test them out. They aren't therefore able to officially say that homemade versions are HexB however it's up to you! I'd recommend working out the fibre content of the packet mix and making sure the nomads version you're doing is the same, that way there won't be much in it! For example, I make my own pasta which Slimming World have said they can't confirm as syn free but 'is unlikely to effect weight loss' ? I hope that helps!

    Absolutely wonderful?I love pizza and have one once a week! After reading the comments n advise,excitedly I got myself to Asda to buy the bread mix but got confused (not unusual in my case!) So I bought the wholemeal n white - just wanted to be safe as Asda always seems to runout. If you can advise, which would be best? Secondly, I use mozzarella light from lidl and also mix in WW small amount of cheese is this okay? Am I doing this right? Please help!!!

      03/10/2016 at 8:46 am

      Hey, sorry I didn't reply sooner! I was away and didn't check the comments (just a little week's holiday!). You'd need to use the wholemeal mix in order for it to be HexB and it's no problem mixing the cheeses as long as you work it out to fit within your HexA!

    Thks loads. Tried this today. Made a few errors. It was the best food I've had in the 2 weeks I've been on slimming world plan. One question though. When cooking the Base didn't rise anymore. On the end it was rather thin. Not a problem as it was very delicious but still wondering why it didn't rise in the cooker. Is it mentions to only rise during the in bowl with wrapper and cloth Cotherstone stage? Again thks for the recipes it was dynamite.
    1. Cliona

      03/10/2016 at 8:45 am

      Hi Jason! Thanks so much for your lovely comment, I'm really pleased you like it! It is quite a thin pizza, it often will puff up slightly in the oven around the bits without any topping on, but once it gets too hot the yeast dies so won't rise any more. If you do want to have a slightly thicker base, you could try allowing it to rise when rolled out, although I don't know how well that would work! Again, thanks for the lovely comment :)

      Hi Kate, I believe it's the Asda mix you can use :) I just stick to 60g wet dough, although this does come out as slightly less when cooked I think it's better safe than sorry!

    Cant wait to have pizza tonight! It seems about 32g of the dry bread mix makes 60g when mixed and cooked so i am going to try this option and see how I get on! Thanks for your great post.. think i might do chicken and sweetcorn with rocket!!

    Stumbled across this recipe and cooked it this afternoon. They came out smaller than I thought but very very tasty and helps to satisfy my pizza cravings.

    Hi, I just came across your site.. amazing recipe ideas! Thank you! Any idea if this breadmix is still a current HEXb as I cant't seem to find it on the app. Thanks

    Went into my local Aldi today and scanned their wholemeal bread mix. It came out at 4 syns for 25g; I was getting excited I thought I could have a pizza for a treat at the weekend

      Hi Joan, it may be that things have changed or been updated since I made this recipe.
