Usually when I hear about a new healthy product being amazing, I take it with a big pinch of salt.
The last time I was bowled over by something new was Porky Lights and look how that turned out 🙈
I will say this now – in my opinion, Lo-Dough is amazing & you should buy it. It makes the best Slimming World pizza base, hands down.
You can catch my recipe for the 1.5 Syn all Day Breakfast Pizza below!
What is Lo-Dough?
Lo-Dough isn’t quite bread, not quite a wrap, and makes an excellent Pizza base. It’s kinda all three, it’s like a hi-tech white bread.
It’s not as thin as a Weight Watchers white wrap, and it’s not as thick as a flat-bread. It’s in between the two.
Lo-Dough has a light, airy texture, almost like a sponge. It works, as it isn’t that thick – any thicker and I don’t think I’d like it.
What does Lo-Dough taste of?
According to the Lo-Dough website, “It’s bread reinvented, a new way to enjoy the convenience and taste of bread with 90% less carbs and more fibre than the healthiest wholemeal loaf.”
I can tell you now, it tastes nothing like wholemeal bread. I don’t think that it tastes of much – which I think is a good thing.
How many Syns are in Lo-Dough?
There are just 39kcal in every piece of Lo-Dough. Seriously, just 39kcal.
If you work on the 1 Syn per 20kcal rule – then it comes out at 2 Syns BUT until it appears on the Slimming World database we won’t know for sure.
I really hope Slimming World add it!
Please make sure to check the calculator and the Slimming World website.
How much is Lo-Dough?
Sadly, it’s is not cheap.
An introductory box will set you back £5 (including delivery), and a box of 14 pieces will set you back £28 (including delivery).
I’ve been informed that each piece of Lo-Dough takes 8 hours to make, that is a looooooong time!
There’s also been an awful lot of research and development that’s gone into making it, so you can forgive the seemingly high price.
Considering delivery is included – it’s not bad at all really! That money that I’d spend on takeaways, I now spend on healthy treats, so I don’t mind spending a few extra pennies.
Where can I buy Lo-Dough?
There’s a handy little feature on their website that will notify you when they’re back in stock.
Would I buy it again?
Yes, and I’ve already bought it again, twice even – it makes the best pizza (recipe below!).
It actually fills me up, unlike wholemeal bread, and with only 39kcal per piece – I’m quids in.
What would I use Lo-Dough for?
I’ve used it for two different things to far;
- A BLT
- An All day breakfast pizza
Both were a success. I’ve included the recipe for the 1.5 Syn all Day Breakfast Pizza below.
It really is something else. Sausage, tomato, mushrooms, balsamic red onions, beans and topped with rocket. Absolute heaven!
