Give your Favourite Pizza Recipes a Healthy Makeover

Our Il Uno Artisan Vegetable bases make the perfect healthy pizza base alternative, made with pure vegetable puree, they are a great low-calorie vegan option and a bright and fresh take on the traditional pizza base. By making just a few simple changes, you can serve your customers healthier, lower-calorie versions of their favourite traditional guilty pleasures.

Our top tips for building healthier pizzas:

  • Swap out your traditional pizza bases for our Il Uno Artisan Vegetable Pizza Bases; made with all-natural ingredients and pure vegetable puree, they’re a simple solution for when you want to offer a healthier alternative.
  • Avoid oil-based sauces and opt for a healthy dip or vegetable-based sauce. This can be as simple as using sweet potato or capsicum dip, light dairy spread, or by making your own tomato sauce base with extra veggies packed in.
  • Replace your traditional mozzarella for lower-fat cheese alternatives such as ricotta, parmesan or vegan cheese. Another option is to let your ingredients take centre stage and skip the cheese altogether!
  • Load up on the vegetables and replace your traditional meats with leaner, less fatty meats such as skinless turkey breast or pork tenderloin (also great sources of protein!).

Check out some of our easy recipes below, made using our 100% natural Il Uno Vegetable Artisan Pizza Bases!
