If you are looking for a low fat pizza or healthy pizza then this is probably as close as it gets. This panini pizza is ready in 15 minutes and contains half the calories of a takeaway margarita.
This recipe is for a basic cheese and tomato panini pizza but you can add toppings such as tuna, ham, chicken, peppers, sweetcorn or olives if you wish. I've recently started doing a BTEC in Healthy Eating, I picked up this recipe from the course.
Here's great tip for fussy eaters - blend up different cooked vegetables in with the tomato sauce. A piece of broccoli will just end up looking like herbs, and they're unlikely to notice carrots at all, which add sweetness.
