Skinny Pizza

Pizza is probably one of my favourite comfort/hangover/lazy day foods; there's just something about it that's so bloody good! I've been a bit under the weather for the past few days and needed something a bit more exciting than a nutella coated bagel (and that's pretty exciting!) so I thought...why not make a pizza? I couldn't be bothered to mess around making dough and putting too much effort in so decided to make a skinny pizza - using a weight watchers tortilla wrap base. These wraps have 107 calories and are super tasty as a pizza base. I threw on a load of veggies and some mozzarella, served it with some sweet potato wedges and was left a very satisfied girl!

All you need for one is:
A tortilla wrap - I use weight watchers
2 tbsp tomato puree
A pinch of herbs
1/2 pack of mozzarella
Vegetables of your choice - I use courgette, red pepper, mushroom and caramelised onions
Pepper, to season

If you're serving with homemade wedges, get them in the oven first as they take a little longer. Never made them before? They're SO simple! Grab a potato, sweet or normal and cut into wedge-chunks. Pop in boiling water in a saucepan for 5 minutes to soften a little.
Drain the water, throw them on a baking tray and drizzle with oil. Add some salt and pepper. I often add garlic too but that isn't necessary! Pop them in the oven for around 30 minutes (for sweet potato) and around 40-45 (for normal potato). Make sure you flip them around a bit or they'll stick to the tray. 

For the pizza:

Chop your veggies up.

Pop the sliced onions in a frying pan on a low heat in some oil and fry to soften, not to brown. After 3 or 4 minutes, sprinkle a teaspoon of sugar over and add a couple of dashes of balsamic vinegar. 
Allow to soften and absorb the flavour for another 4 or 5 minutes.

Grab your tortilla, pop it on a flat surface and smear your puree on and sprinkle your herbs and black pepper over. 

Scatter your veggies on the pureed tortilla and pop in the oven - make sure your wedges only need another 10 minutes before popping the 'pizza' in or it will spoil while you're waiting.

After 5 minutes, add your onions. Tear up your mozzarella and scatter that over the pizza too. I added some chopped chives as well.

Leave it for 5 minutes or so for the mozzarella to melt over the top.

Remove from the oven, plate up and serve your wedges in a little side bowl.

So simple, so tasty and absolutely perfect for a lazy, quick-to-make pizza. 
I think these will be a regular occurrence for me now.
