Syn Free Ham & Mushroom Pitta Pizza
This super simple recipe for Syn Free Ham & Mushroom Pitta Pizza is healthy, filling and nutritious lunch or dinner dish that everyone will love.
There is nothing that I love more than a Slimming World friendly pizza recipe! It probably has something to do with the fact that I’m a total pizza addict and it has long been one of my biggest weight gain downfalls.
Since starting Slimming World I have developed a number of tasty syn free pizza recipes and this Syn Free Pitta Pizza recipe, topped with ham and mushrooms, is the latest success I’ve had.
Syn Free Pitta Pizza on Slimming World
This recipe, as the name suggests, is totally syn free on Slimming World, using one of your Healthy Extra options and your Healthy Extra B choice for the day. Recent changes to the Slimming World plan make wholemeal pitta bread a great choice for your HexB (standard 60g size) and it turns out that pitta bread makes an excellent pizza base. Who knew?!?
This recipe for syn free pitta pizza is a cut above the rest, partly because of the homemade pizza sauce it’s topped with. Whilst you could opt to simply use a packet sauce, or even a tablespoon or two of tomato puree on its own, neither will give you the taste explosion that you’ll get from spending five minutes making the one I’ve included in the recipe below… trust me!
Perfect for Meal Prep
Not only is this pitta pizza recipe the perfect healthy ‘Fakeaway’ (homemade healthy takeaway) recipe, it’s also ideal for meal prepping your lunches. Simply whip it up the night before and reheat in the microwave when you want to eat it.
Serve with a tasty side salad, or some steamed veg if you’re enjoying it for dinner, to make this Ham & Mushroom Pitta Pizza a fully balanced and even more nutritious choice. The pitta bread itself is a great source of fibre and the tomato sauce and toppings offer plenty of healthy veggies, but a good side salad brings any dish together.
Making Syn Free Ham & Mushroom Pitta Pizza – Step By Step Guide
This is a super simple recipe and takes just 20 minutes (or less) to whip up. The recipe serves two, although if you’re cooking for one you simply need to halve the amount of tomato sauce you make!
Slice up your cherry tomatoes and a garlic clove.
Spray a saucepan with low calorie cooking spray and add your cherry tomatoes and garlic, along with half a tablespoon of parsley, one teaspoon of vegetable stock powder and a quarter of cup of water. Season with salt and pepper and simmer until you have a thick sauce.
Top two wholemeal pitta bread with half of the sauce each and spread it evenly, leaving a gap around the edge. Leaving a gap helps make this more like a traditional pizza, as the edge of the pitta crisps up giving you a great crust!
Top your pitta pizzas with your Healthy Extra A portion of grated mozzarella cheese. Again I would recommend leaving a gap between the edge of the cheese and the edge of the sauce. Doing so allows the cheese to melt without spilling over the edge of the pitta pizza and gives you a thicker cheese topping.
Top your pizza with chopped ham and a few slices of mushroom on each. Season with salt, pepper and dried parsley.
Spray each pitta pizza with low calorie cooking spray and bake in the oven at 180 degrees for 8 minutes, or until the mushrooms are cooked and the cheese is fully melted.
