A quick and easy Margherita pizza I make for the kids. The whole thing has less calories than 2 slices of Pizza Hut or Domino's pizza, is ready in 10 minutes, and costs a fraction of what you would normally pay from a fast food restaurant. 


  • Base of your choice. It could be a homemade one you made from scratch (cook it first before adding ingredients) or it could be a store-bought one (check for and avoid added sugar). It could be whole wheat, keto, cauliflower base, flaxseed or soy base, multigrain, or even just a regular tortilla wrap.
  • 1-2 tbs tomato pulp or sauce (again, without any added sugar, preferably 100% tomatoes)
  • shredded mozzarella or a mozzarella ball cut into thin slices (about 100-200g depending on the size of your base)
  • fresh basil leaves
  • Italian seasoning 
That's all the ingredients my kids want (margherita). You may add any other healthy toppings you like (precooked chicken, olives, fresh tomatoes etc).


  1. Brush the base with tomato pulp (don't overdo it).
  2. Spread the mozzarella on top.
  3. Add the rest of the ingredients if any,(except for the fresh basil), with the Italian seasoning last. 
  4. Cook in the oven at 215C for 10-12 minutes until the cheese melts. If you don't have an oven you can also cook it on the stove, in a pan. Brush the pan with some extra virgin olive oil and cook at low-medium heat for about 10 minutes until the cheese melts.
  5. When it's ready, add a few fresh basil leaves.
