super low fat courgette pizza squares

I thought I'd get my geek on and post up a low fat recipe that I've been loving lately, I'm a complete pizza addict and find this the perfect alternative to a takeaway. I've been using the Warbutons Square Wraps for the pizza bases which makes them far less stodgy, is much lighter tasting and of course lower in calories. 


The first step is to grill up some thinly sliced Courgette and set it aside to add to the pizza later on.


Then spread the Tomato and Basil sauce over the base, you want to use enough so that the pizza won't be dry but you don't want it soggy either so don't go overboard. Avoid the edges too as then they will crisp up just like a proper pizza.


Next add on thin slices of Mozzarella but make sure it isn't too wet as it will make the pizza soggy which is not what you want.


Pop your pizza in a hot oven and wait for the Mozzarella to melt and allow the pizza to crisp up before putting on the courgette otherwise it will become too watery. 


Finally get the courgette on there, add a few leaves of Basil and use the grill setting on the oven so that the Mozzarella bubbles up and the Courgette heats through.


Finito. I always find that one pizza square is filling enough on it's own or with a salad for a lunch or tea time meal, I calculated that they come in at around 300 calories which is pretty much 1/5 of the calories than in a medium Dominos pizza. Let me know if you will try these pizzas out!
