Low-Calorie, Low-Carb, and Totally Delicious Pizza

Love pizza but hate the bloated belly bomb that comes from all that bread? Let fresh produce stand in for the traditional carb-laden crust.

Aubergine rounds are the perfect vessel for all the saucy and cheesy goodness that comes with your favourite traditional slice. These minipizzas make a delicious low-calorie supper on their own, on top of over roasted veggies, or sandwiched between two slices of whole-grain toast.

If you're hosting a get-together at home, consider baking up a few batches for friends. These aubergine pizzas are an easy, elegant, and low-calorie starter — each minipie is under 20 calories.

Aubergine Pizzas

From Lizzie Fuhr, POPSUGAR Fitness


I kept things simple with grape tomatoes, red onion, and basil, but feel free to top off your aubergine pizzas with whatever toppings you wish. I will definitely be making these again with spinach and crumbled turkey sausage.

Low-Calorie, Low-Carb, and Totally Delicious Pizza


  1. Rapeseed oil spray
    1 large aubergine, sliced into 1-inch rounds
    1/4 teaspoon sea salt
    115 grams low-sodium tomato sauce
    100 grams low-fat mozzarella shreds
    10 grape tomatoes, sliced
    1 tablespoon diced red onion
    Fresh basil, to garnish
    Red pepper flakes, to garnish


  1. Preheat the oven to Gas Mark 6.
  2. Lightly spray two baking sheets with Rapeseed oil spray, lay out the sliced aubergine, and sprinkle with the sea salt. Bake for 20 minutes.
  3. Remove the aubergine trays from the oven, and construct your minipizzas. Spread out a heaping tablespoon of tomato sauce, follow with a sprinkle of mozzarella, then a few grape tomato slices, and a sprinkle of red onion on every aubergine round.
  4. Set the oven to broil, and place the trays back in for 1-2 minutes until the cheese is crisp and bubbling. Watch the oven closely to make sure they don't burn.
  5. Remove the trays from the oven, top with basil, red pepper flakes, or the garnishes of your choice, and enjoy warm.
