With Christmas only two days away, this Saturday is likely one of last-minute rushing around and hurried eating for you. So what better meal tonight than some quick pizzas…no, not the store-bought or ordered kind, pizza you make at home to ensure it is low in salt and fat.
I written about different low-salt crust options (crusts are normally loaded with salt). You can buy a pre-made lower-salt crust and use that. Any marked extra-thin are usually lower in salt simply because there’s less crust there to begin with.
Matzo is another option and is generally salt-free. Costco usually sells large boxes of large, round matzo that are perfect for making a pizza.
For the tomato sauce, either make your own, limiting the salt, or buy a salt-free sauce. I’ve used both Trader Joe’s and Hunt’s salt-free sauce in the past, as well as my own.
Kraft make sa shredded low-fat mozzerella you can sue to top the pizza, then simply add whatever vegetables you like, things like mushrooms, peppers, onions or low-salt olives.
