Healthy Thin Crust Tuna Pizza

Who says pizza can’t taste good and be healthy at the same time? Obviously, that wasn’t me, and after reading this post, you wouldn’t be the one either.

 Healthy Thin Crust Tuna Pizza


(Pizza Dough)

 Instant Yeast  2g ( ½ tsp)
 Bread Flour 100g
Cake  flour 100g
Sugar 10g
Salt ½ tsp
Water 110g
Applesauce 10g










Light Mozzarella cheese ½ cup
Tuna 1 can
Mushrooms (sliced) 10
Chopped pineapples ½ a small pineapple
Chopped onions ½ an onion’s worth
Tomato paste ½ small can
Salt and pepper To taste




1.      Mix together all ingredients with your fingers and knead till it forms a smooth dough (I kneaded for about 10 minutes)

2.      Add applesauce and continue kneading till smooth (I kneaded for about 15-20 minutes)

3.      Place dough in a bowl and cover with a wet cloth in an oven with a bowl of boiling water.

4.      Let rise for 60 minutes until doubled in size

5.     Split dough into 2 equal portions and roll them into VERY flat circles (the size and thickness you want your pizza to be). Use your fingers to press each circle into a properly floured pizza pan/mould (I use a oven- friendly plate)

6.      Cover with wet cloth and let rest for 15 minutes

7.      Using a fork, make dents on each dough.

8.     Spread a thick layer of tomato paste, than add some mozzarella cheese. Next, add tuna, mushrooms and pineapple. Sprinkle some salt and pepper. Add a final thicker layer of mozzarella cheese.

9.      Preheat your oven to 220°C. Final proofing for 15 minutes.

10.  Bake for 12- 15 minutes.

  1. i make tuna pizza on large wholemeal pita bread.

    i use tomatoe sauce for the base, 1 tin of tuna, 97% fat free cottage cheese, 1 tomato, half an onion, capsicum, mushrooms and cracked pepper once it is cooked.

    They are healthy, cheap and high in protein. If u want you can add pineapple, olives, prawns, anchovies, but avoid processed meats.

    I’m on a cut/weighloss and have dropped almost 4 kilo in 3 weeks and have been eating these like they are going out of fashion.
