Well, if you ever feel like having a delicious pizza, you need not ‘cheat’ your diet, instead make a healthy pizza using a healthy pizza crust! Here are some of the healthy alternatives to pizza crust:
ZUCINNI PIZZA CRUST
Zucinni can be used to make awesome pizza crust! Use a food processor, or the large sides of a hand grater to grate the zucchini. Then put the zucchini into the food processor with the steel blade, and chop it more finely. (If you don’t have a food processor, use a large chef knife for this second chopping).
Put the zucchini in a microwave-safe bowl and microwave for about 5 minutes on high. Then put a piece of cheesecloth or a kitchen towel inside a colander and let the zucchini drain while it cools. Mix the cooked zucchini, grated Mozzarella blend, almond meal, Parmesan, oregano, garlic powder, salt, and egg to make the crust mixture. Make small balls and press them into fine sheets or thick sheets whatever you like and bake them. Your pizza crust is ready. You can use the crust like usual pizza bases you get commercially.
EGG PLANT PIZZA CRUST
It might not fit most people’s traditional concept of the crispy, crunchy pizza crust, but eggplant pizzas taste absolutely delicious (and kid-friendly)!
Plus, at only 212 calories per serving, anybody can deal with a crunchless crust! All you need to do is sprinkle the eggplant slices with the coarse salt, let sit on paper towels for 20 minutes and wipe dry. You can brush some oil on it and use it like a pizza base.
POTATO PIZZA CRUST
Who doesn’t love potatoes? They taste good and compliment veggies and cheese perfectly!
All you need to do is slice potatoes without peeling away the skin and using it just like egg-plant crust! How easy is that! They form a crunchy cum soft base due to potato peel.
CAULIFLOWER PIZZA CRUST
The most well-known of the veggie crusts, cauliflower is a popular option for gluten-free and Paleo eaters, as well as omnivores who just want to fit more vegetables into their diet. Cauliflower creates a thin crust, strong enough to hold the toppings and delicious enough to fulfil your pizza cravings.
Start by placing the cauliflower florets in a food processor. Pulse until the cauliflower is the consistency of wet sand. Then microwave the cauliflower for a few minutes and drain. Place the cauliflower into a clean kitchen towel, twist, and squeeze out as much liquid as possible. After draining as much liquid out as possible, roll them into sheets and bake. Use it as normal pizza base.
These pizza crust alternatives are not as delicious as the original pizza, but they surely play a great part in fulfilling your cravings!
