It’s possibly my favourite food. I basically lived off of it for a few months in university. I am all for ordering in, but I crave pizza way more often than I should probably be eating it. As you can learn , fatty cheeses aren’t always the best for us. Luckily, I am incredibly determined and found a way around this 😉
Compare this to a slice from Dominoes which has 716 calories in a comparable amount of veggie pizza, or Pizza Pizza which has 680 calories in a comparable slice. On top of that, I use Flatouts to make my pizzas. These have the added benefit of more protein, on top of the cottage cheese, adding up to a whopping 29.6g of protein!
You can always add a sprinkle of mozzarella or cheddar on top of this as well! But for now…
Cottage Cheese Pizza
For those days when you NEED pizza now, but don't want the calorie count!
- 1 Whole wheat wrap/large naan round/flatout
- 3/4 cup of cottage cheese 2%
- 1/2 cup of spinach
- 1/2 cup of grape tomatoes sliced lengthwise
- 1 tsp butter melted
- 1/2 tsp garlic minced
- 1-2 tbsp homemade or low sodium pizza sauce
- optional basil
Heat the oven to 350F.
Either squeeze out the cottage cheese a little with a cheese cloth or spread it on a plate and lay a napkin on top to soak up excess moisture.
Spread the pizza sauce along the wrap, leaving about 1/2 an inch around the edge. Combine the butter and garlic and brush the exposed edges of the wrap with it.
Scatter the tomatoes, spinach, and optional basil around the pizza. Top with cottage cheese, spreading evenly across the pizza (it won't cover every inch).
Bake for ~8 minutes, keeping an eye, until the edges have crisped up and the tomatoes are soft.
Enjoy! 😀 And feel free to change up the veggie toppings!
