How to Use Toppings

  1. Do NOT overload the pizza less is best with toppings too many and you overwhelm the taste buds but even more importantly you will cause the crust to go soggy!
  2. Think about healthy combinations you like in other meals and try to recreate them on a Pizza - for example, baby spinach leaves, Camembert cheese, turkey slices and a drizzle of cranberry sauce.
  3. Top pizza and put into a preheated oven at 220'c until edges crisp and cheese has melted and just begun to colour...

Eat and enjoy!

Vitality Fitness Pizza Dough #1

Vitality Fitness Pizza Dough

Dough Ingredients
(makes 2 bases)

  • 375ml (1 1/2 cups) warm water
  • 2 teaspoons (7g/1 sachet) dried yeast
  • 1 Tbls raw honey
  • 600g (4 cups) plain wholemeal flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon sea salt
  • 60ml (1/4 cup) olive oil, plus extra for brushing

Method

1. Combine the water, yeast and honey in a small bowl. Set aside for 5 minutes or until foamy.
2. Combine the flour and salt in a large bowl and make a well in the centre. Add the yeast mixture and oil. Use a round-bladed knife in a cutting motion to mix until the mixture is combined.
3. Use your hands to bring the dough together in the bowl.
4. Brush a bowl lightly with oil. Turn the dough onto a lightly floured surface and knead for 10 minutes or until smooth and elastic.
5. Place in the prepared bowl and turn to coat in oil. Cover with plastic wrap and set aside in a warm, draught-free place to rise for 30 minutes or until dough doubles in size.

Notes

  1. I par-cook mine before adding ingredients as I find it gives a crisper base. (200'c until it JUST begins to colour)
  2. Dough can be frozen for later use as can cooked pizzas.


To Use Base


Top pizza and put into a preheated oven at 220'c until edges crisp and cheese has melted and just begun to colour...


Rice Paper Rolls

Chicken and Veg Rice Paper Rolls


Ingredients


  • Cold chicken (I used some left over sntizels but you can use any cooked chicken pieces)
  • Shredded Lettuce
  • Shredded Carrot (I used a fine julienne shredder for this)
  • Rice noodles (prepared as per directions)
  • Rice Paper sheets
  • Sweet Chilli Sauce or other dipping sauce of choice)



Method


1. Prepare Noodles as per directions.
2. Dip first rice paper sheet into water (as per directions on packet)
3. Place chicken pieces onto rice paper, add some lettuce, carrot and noodles (Hint: less is more! it is easier and neater to roll small rolls rather than over stuffing them!)
4. Starting at one end roll around ingredients, then fold in side and continue rolling...
5. Place side by side (do not place them touching each other they will stick like glue to each other!!!!) on a plate and continue rolling.
6. Serve with dipping sauce


Notes:

Rice paper rolls are so delicious, fun and easy to make and you can put just about anything in them - except hot ingredients!!!
