This Dieter’s Pizza could be just what you were waiting for. Just as mouth-wateringly delicious as any other pizza , but with less than half the usual calories, this recipe replaces cheese with low-fat cream cheese made using low-fat paneer and milk.
While the whole wheat pizza base gives you a fibre boost, the use of appropriate veggies like zucchini and coloured capsicum retains the authentic feel at a low-cal count.
- Heat the olive oil in a broad non-stick pan, add the zucchini, capsicum, chilli flakes, mixed herbs and little salt and sauté on a medium flame for 2 minutes.
- Divide the topping into 4 equal portions and keep aside.
- Make criss-cross on the base of the tomatoes and place them in boiling water for 2 to 3 minutes or till the skin begins to peel.
- Drain the tomatoes, cool slightly, peel, deseed and roughly chop them. Blend in a mixer to a smooth pulp and keep aside.
- Heat the olive oil in a broad non-stick pan, add the garlic and sauté on a medium flame for a few seconds.

- Add the sugar, mix well and cook on a medium flame for 1 to 2 minutes, while stirring occasionally.
- Divide the pizza sauce into 4 equal portions and keep aside.
