Looking for a healthy bite-sized snack to fill your Quarantine cravings? Bet you didn’t know something could be this tasty and nutritious.
😋THE YUM SUMMARY 🍕
Our delicious, high fibre snack tastes just like Mediterranean pizza! Like pizza, you can easily substitute ingredients and personalize it with toppings you like. Although this recipe has 12 servings, it could be more depending on how big or small you make your pizza bites!
Having a high fibre snack like this is amazing for your Quarantine diet. Fibre keeps you full longer, regulates your blood sugar level and prevents heart disease. For a video demonstration, check out our Instagram highlights on BODZii!
Vegetarian (feel free to put your own twist on this though!)
20-25 min prep, 20-25 min bake (let us know how long prep takes you)
(Per 1 serving)
Total fat: 8.9 g
Total Carbohydrates: 15.4 g
Protein: 5.7 g
-Virgin olive oil (a Mediterranean staple, so as much as you want!)
-Baking powder (1 tsp)
-Tomato paste (1 tbsp)
-Whole wheat flour (150 g)
-Rolled oats (60 g)
-Onion (½): Chop it up!
-Clove garlic (1): smash them first before you use it. It will release the enzyme allicin which is antimicrobial and extremely healthy.
-🍅Sun Dried tomatoes (½ cup or 60 g): Put them in warm water for 15 minutes, drain it and then cut it in small pieces. This is rich in Vitamin C and lycopene
❓No sun dried tomatoes? No problem.
Red, green and yellow bell peppers work too. Just don’t use a fresh tomato because it’s watery which will affect the dough
-🥚Flax egg: Mix 2 eggs with 2 tbsp ground flax seed and 2 tbsp water
-🧀Cheese: Preferably feta, but if you have hard cheeses make sure to cut it into cubes.
-Parsley (¼ bunch or 54 g) - no need to remove stalks. Let’s eliminate waste, just wash them well and cut them in small pieces
-Apple cider vinegar (1 tbsp)
-Olives (This is optional. Remove the seeds and cut them in small pieces,)
👌Spices: This is up to you to mix and match!
-Oregano (1 tsp or as much as you want)
-Black pepper (same kind of deal!)
❗There’s no need for extra salt because there’s already lots of sodium from olives, sun dried tomatoes and from feta cheese. If you are using ingredients with less sodium, you may want to add 1 tsp salt.
-2 spoons or an ice cream scoop
-Fork or mixer
1. Preheat your oven to 375 degrees
2. Add dry ingredients into your bowl first. Put in whole wheat flour, oats and baking powder.
MIX IT UP!!
3. Next, add your eggs, 1 tbsp apple cider vinegar and then 3 tbsp olive oil.
Grab a fork and MIX MIX MIX!
4. Now it’ll get messy. Use your hands and knead!
Depending on the consistency, add ½ cup of water. If you have milk or yogurt, you can try that.
5. Add your onion, garlic, parsley, sun dried tomatoes and olives.
Feta will wait until the end, because if you add too much it’ll disappear into the dough.
6. It’s spice time! Use any kind of spice you like.
We recommend tomato paste, oregano and black pepper!
MIX IT UP AGAIN!
7. Finally, feta cheese! Add it in and gently mix. Try not to break it up too much.
Remember, if you use cheddar, mozzarella or other hard cheeses, cut it into cubes rather than shredding.
8. Bake 20-25 minutes until it becomes a golden brown.
Voila! You’re done!
