TUNA PIZZA WRAP.

When in America I love to spend hours at Whole Foods Market. I love the organic products they have and all these fresh veggies and fruits look amazing and are rich with beautiful flavours. I think you can just leave me there for the day; exploring all the amazing things they have and just, eat. That delicious healthy salad bar or the guilty pleasures from
chewy chocolate cookies to nut bars and beautiful cakes, it’s like Disney World to me.

A dream world.. ehh supermarket, now back to pizzas. Whole Foods has a beautiful big shelve with all organic seasoning and then Pizza seasoning from Frontier Co-Op Pizza seasoningcaught my eye. While fantasising about what delicious and healthy pizzas I can make with this seasoning I also wondered if this will be good for a savoury oatmeal..

Anyway, get this seasoning online if you don’t live in America because it brings great flavour to your home-made pizza’s!

This pizza wrap is made from lots of proteins (tuna and greek yogurt) and some carbs of the wrap to keep you energised, thus a beautiful treat if you ask me. If you want to cut down on the fats you may want to skip the mozzarella or substitute it for a skim milk version.

Also I’d like to make my own home-made pesto so I can avoid any preservatives that you find in most pestos bought in store. It’s as easy as blending 2 big hands of fresh basil leaves, some parmesan cheese, clove of garlic, squeeze of lemon, pine nuts and season with some salt and pepper. Leave out pine nuts if you want to cut down on fats. 5 minutes to a healthier version!

TUNA PIZZA WRAP. – serves 1
PIZZA-BASE
1 whole wheat wrap

PIZZA-SAUCE
2 tbsp Greek yogurt
2 tbsp (home-made) pesto
1 tbsp grated parmesan cheese
1 tsp pizza seasoning
optional: (skim-milk) mozzarella

PIZZA-TOPPING
30 – 60 gr canned tuna in water (I used a John West 60 gr can for 2 pizzas)
1/2 red onion
fresh basil leaves
optional: microgreens

Preheat the oven to 200 C degrees (convention oven – fan) and start by mixing the yogurt and pesto.

Use a baking tray and cover it with baking paper (or aluminium foil) and use it to prepare your pizza base by spreading your pizza sauce over the wrap. Sprinkle some parmesan cheese and pizza seasoning and additionally top it with some mozzarella if you’d like. Put in the oven for +/- 8 minutes until the cheese gets bubbly, and your wrap turns crispy and has browned a bit

Meanwhile your pizza is in the oven cut an onion in rings, pick some basil leaves and open the tuna can. Once you get the wrap out of the oven you can finish your pizza with the toppings and serve warm.

I paired it with some rucola salad, left-over red onion rings, basil leaves, microgreens, and quality virgin olive oil.

Enjoy!
