With this clever Hash Brown Pizza, you can have a whole slimming-friendly pizza to yourself – it’s perfect if you’re calorie counting or following a plan like Weight Watchers!
Pizza is one of the greatest foods of all time, but all that dough and cheese makes it difficult to enjoy if you’re trying to eat healthily.
For the full list of ingredients and comprehensive instructions, please see the recipe card at the end of this post. Before you scroll, there’s important stuff in the blurb 👍
There are lots of recipes out there that replace the base of a pizza with vegetables like cauliflower, but these still need cheese adding to help them stick together. We believe that all the cheesy goodness should be on top of the pizza, not hiding in the base!
