Pizza Lovers Prayers Are Answered With 400 kcals Of Pure Pizza Heaven.

Diet loving pizza fans can finally rejoice at being able to gorge on their favourite food without fear of piling on the pounds.

Online healthy food retailer, MuscleFood.com has developed a new diet alternative to the nations favourite fast food containing less than 400 calories.

Each ten inch pizza is the equivalent of around two slices from the UK’s most popular takeaways, or a third of the calories found in supermarket frozen pizzas. Each pizza contains just 190 kcals per slice, is high in protein and carbohydrates and is naturally gluten free.  Each pizza contains less than half a teaspoon of fat. Calorie content is kept low with an oval protein base fortified with pea protein, rather than the traditional round, carb and fat filled dough base.

The pizza’s come with four different toppings, Mediterranean vegetable, goat’s cheese, chicken tikka and the classic margherita. The 364 kcal margherita has the lowest calories out of the three, topped with a tangy tomato sauce and creamy mozzarella.

The tempting 378 kcal Mediterranean vegetable diet pizza is topped with courgettes, red and yellow peppers with the 386 kcal goats cheese diet pizza finished with goats cheese and caramelised red onions. The chicken tikka light has 380 kcal and is topped with chicken chunks marinated in a tikka style sauce and roasted red and yellow peppers. Each pizza takes just 12 minutes to cook in the oven, making them quick and convenient.

The diet pizzas look set to be a big hit with men and women watching their waistline who can indulge without feeling guilty and fitness fans careful about what they eat. The pizzas are available from Musclefood.com and are priced at £3.95 for one 10” diet pizza.

Darren Beale of Musclefood.com said: “When you’re on a diet it can be hard to give up the foods you love and it’s those weekend takeaways and naughty treats packed with calories that we all miss.

“We wanted to create a pizza for dieters and those following a healthy eating plan which tastes and looks as good as anything you’d order from a takeaway without all the fat, carbohydrates and calories.

“We developed three tasty toppings which are low in calories and high in taste and hope to add more to the range if these prove popular.

“The feedback from customers has been amazing. The first batch sold out in 48 hours which goes to show how much customers really do want to be able stick to their diets whilst enjoying their favourite binge foods.”

Darren continued: “The calorie count of takeaway pizzas is well into the thousands, so it’s great that we are able to offer an alternative that means people can keep in shape without giving up the food they love.

“With each pizza containing less than 400 calories, we believe that this is quite possibly the lowest calorie pizza available in the UK.”
