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 👍

A few weeks ago we saw a plethora of different versions of Syn free pizza on Facebook & Instagram – as Slimming world now class 60g of baked Aldi Wholemeal Bread Mix as your HEB. Using just 20g of Light Cheddar cheese is just 1/2 your HEA too!

Which got us thinking… What pizza flavours would make the best pizza?

We put our heads together and came up with a list of different flavour combinations, to make the humble 60g wholemeal pizza base exciting.

Please note that the Asda Wholemeal Bread Mix is no longer an HEB option

This was the second we thought of, continuing with the spicy theme – as we do like a bit of spice, if you want it hotter, you can certainly make it hotter.

Syn Free Mexican Chipotle Meatball Pizza Time Saving Tips

There are a few steps to making these, and they do take a while due to the proving of the dough and marinading of the chicken – but it is worth it. I promise.

Time saving tip, cook the Chicken & prep the toppings whilst your waiting for the dough to prove – it will save you a lot of time.

A Note About Weights

Slimming World do say that the 60g is of cooked dough – so you need to be careful!

We’ve experimented and cooked 65g of dough, and when baked it weighed just under 60g – so you should be ok.

Just remember this we’re not trained consultants and our advice doesn’t replace that of your consultant – be sensible!

Pizza Base
  1. Make up to packet instructions & allow 30 mins for the dough to prove. We make up the whole pack then weigh out 70g balls of dough - the ones we don't use we freeze
  2. Roll as thin as you can onto a piece of baking parchment - you may need to spray your rolling pin with frylight to prevent sticking
Tomato Sauce
  1. Throw all ingredients into a pan, bring up to the heat then turn down and simmer for 30 minutes stirring often
  2. Once cooked attack with a stick blender, or blitz in a food processor until smooth
  3. Place into a sterilised jar until ready for use. Will least a week in the fridge, or you can freeze it. Perfect for batch booking
Mexican Chipotle Meatballs
  1. Put all meatball ingredients in a bowl and mix well
  2. Form into small balls & set aside in the fridge
  3. When the dough is proving, place on an oven tray and cook in the oven for 20 minutes until cooked. Do not put raw meatballs on your pizza!
Onion and Chive Dressing
  1. Mix all ingredients well & place into a food bag. Chill until ready for use. When you're ready, snip a corner off the bag and drizzle over pizza
Pizza Assembly
  1. After you have rolled out your dough, place a small amount of tomato sauce & spread it around
  2. Start with your Mexican Meatballs - as little or as many as you like. We used about 100g of meatballs per pizza.
  3. Next your peppers and onions
  4. Next your cheese - make sure to distribute it evenly. On top of that dot around some fresh tomato pieces
  5. Place some onions on the top - not too many though, you don't want them to burn
  6. Place in an oven pre-heated to 200°C for 12 minutes
  7. Remove and drizzle over the onion and chive dressing & sprinkle with torn coriander

  1. There are a few makes of wholemeal pitta bread you can use as a heathy extra B . What about using them if you are stuck for time . Would you suggest cooking them in oven first or putting topping on and bungling the lot in in one go . X

    1. Hi Sue,
      You could use a pitta if you’re short on time, and I’d probably put the topping on and cook it in one go rather than cooking the pitta first so it doesn’t go too dry and crispy. We’ve seen quite a few people use a HEB wrap (the BFree Foods ones for example) as a base too, so that could be another option.

  2. Sorry if this sounds pedantic but, in the preamble you say that 65g of dough cooks up to 60g but in the actual recipe you say 70g of dough. Which is right please? Thanks.
