Pizza is one of the greatest foods of all time, but all that dough and cheese makes it difficult to enjoy whilst watching your calorie intake or following plans like Slimming World and Weight Watchers.
With this clever Hash Brown Pizza, you can have a whole pizza all to yourself for only a few more calories than a large slice of a Dominos Meat Feast!
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!
By replacing that heavy dough with a giant hash brown, you can enjoy two of the greatest comfort foods in life for a fraction of the calories, Syns and Weight Watchers Points.
You can top this Hash Brown Pizza with anything you want. We recommend loading up with tasty veggies, cheese, chicken, ham or lean bacon. Basically anything you enjoy!
Because this is essentially a pizza topped hash brown, you can even make it for breakfast. Rochelle from our Facebook group made the fabulous variation below!
Topped with finely chopped heck sausages, ham, bacon, tomatoes, red peppers and cheese, Rochelle then made a shallow hole in the middle to put an egg in!
DISCLAIMER; you may need to eat this with a knife and fork. The potato base isn’t as strong as its dough counterpart, but it does taste incredible!
