The world has peculiar ways of making us see things in perspective. As the well-known quote goes:

“Life is too ironic. It takes sadness to know what happiness is, noise to appreciate silence, and absence to value presence.”

And as I was reminded earlier this week, it takes illness to appreciate health, and not being able to eat to value the importance of food. We went out for a meal in the evening, and I ate a large burger containing chicken, bacon, lettuce, tomato and processed cheese. Alongside this, I ate some battered onion rings and quite a few chips.

Due to this heavy meal, my stomach decided it was going to have trouble digesting it, so I was ill for two days.😣🤒

Having experienced this many times in the past, I should have been more careful about eating such a big meal! About a year ago, it was triggered by a vegetable stew I ate, which had been packed with Brussels sprouts, cabbage and spinach. Another time, it was a large roast dinner.

Food sensitivities

Many people experience similar things due to food sensitivities – allergies or intolerance to certain foods. Common culprits include: gluten, dairy, eggs, nuts, fish and soy.

That’s why I like to make most of my recipes gluten-free, with dairy-free and egg-free options. Even if you have a food allergy or intolerance to a particular food in a recipe you like, there is always an alternative ingredient that can be used to still produce the same result!

While I was ill, I didn’t eat for about 36 hours. What I eventually ate was a bowl of watery oats, as they are good for soothing the stomach.

Despite the bland taste and sloppy texture of the porridge, it was wonderful to actually be eating again! After a couple of days of applesauce, crackers and plain gluten-free pasta, I eventually felt fully recovered and ready to eat normally again.

Can you guess the first thing I was really craving?

Yep, pizza!

But of course, fat and gluten are the most challenging for us to digest. As my stomach was still weak, I didn’t want to give it a load of greasy, calorific pizza to work its way through, right?

Well actually, I found a way around that problem…

A Healthy Gluten free Pizza.

This here pizza is in fact gluten free, and the base takes a whole 5 minutes to make!!

The base doesn’t require yeast, which means there’s no kneading or proving involved. Just mix gluten-free self raising flour and Greek yoghurt (dairy free if needed, of course😉), pour into a greased circular cake pan, and bake! Simple, quick and easy!

As for the topping, it’s just half a can of chopped tomatoes and some feta cheese. Of course you can use any cheese you like, such as mozzarella, cheddar – even mascarpone! I used feta because it is better for you, yet still has a lovely strong cheesy flavour. For the traditional texture and taste, I then sprinkled about 30 grams of cheddar on top…

If that wasn’t enough to convince you, this healthy gluten free pizza clocks in at just 100 calories per slice.

100 calories.

Do you know how many calories a normal slice of pizza contains? 300!

The most important thing is that those 100 calories are filled with better nutrition than normal pizza. By using Greek yoghurt in the base, you’ll be getting some good protein as well as probiotics, calcium and potassium. For the topping we’re using chopped tomatoes, and that’s 100% proper tomato. As for the cheese, the feta is lower in fat and calories than other cheeses.

Ready in half an hour, you can’t go wrong with this healthier alternative to the classic comfort food.

Healthy 3 ingredient Gluten free Pizza – Takes just 20 minutes!

This Healthy Gluten free Pizza is made without butter or oil, and takes just 5 minutes to prepare! No proving, kneading or rolling required. Low fat, high protein, and only 100 calories per slice!

Ingredients

    For the gluten-free base:
  • •150g plain Greek yoghurt (dairy free version if you need to)
  • •140g gluten-free self raising flour
  • Toppings:
  • •200g chopped tinned tomatoes
  • •70g feta cheese (or mozzarella, cheddar, mascarpone, etc.)
  • •30g grated cheddar (optional)
  • •Any other toppings of choice: vegetables, herbs, meat etc.

Instructions

  1. Preheat the oven to 180°C (350°F, 160°C fan, gas 4). Grease a 9x9 inch circular spring-form cake pan.
  2. In a medium-sized mixing bowl, stir the yoghurt and flour together until just combined (don't over-mix). The consistency should be a bit like soft cream cheese. If it's too thick, gradually add more yoghurt until it is more it seems more like a cheesecake mixture.
  3. Pour into the greased cake tin and bake at 180°C for 10 minutes.
  4. Meanwhile, open a tin of chopped tomatoes and grate/slice your chosen cheese(s).
  5. After 10 minutes, remove base from oven. Dollop spoonfuls of chopped tomatoes onto the base and spread using the back of the spoon.
  6. Place/sprinkle the cheese evenly over the top, followed by any herbs or other pre-cooked toppings of choice.
  7. Bake at 180°C for another 15 minutes, then remove from oven and leave to cool for 5 minutes.
  8. Remove the circular base of the baking pan away from the sides (the one I used has a lever to release the base). Using a plastic spatula, slice the pizza, then transfer to a plate. (I wouldn't recommend trying to transfer the whole pizza across in one go as it may tear!)
