FAKEAWAY PIZZA EXPRESS AMERICAN HOT PIZZA KIT

We’re all missing those visits to our favourite restaurants – so much so that we’ve all had to become inventive this year re-creating our favourite meals at home, whether that’s from scratch or with a little help from a meal kit.
One of the latest meal kits available are the Pizza Express kits – and in this weeks fakeaway we’ve chosen to take on their American Hot Meal Kit to see if we could create a lower fat, lower carb version that is just as easy to make at home. We succeeded!

A classic American Hot pizza comes in at 978 calories, 37.7g fat, 111.1g carbs, 52.8g protein. In comparison our version comes in at just 260 calories, 7g fat, 9g carbs and 34g of protein…..in that case we’ll take three!

So what have we switched up?

Eatlean Grated – Sprinkle on a pizza, in a wrap, in your morning omelette… you name it, Eatlean works just like any other grated cheese, AND it melts like a dream…Containing half the calories of standard cheddar, but with a naturally mature Cheddar flavour, this remarkable cheese is ideal as an ingredient for your low calorie meals, low carb recipes, or high protein diet.

LoDough -The lightest, lowest calorie bread alternative – Bread reinvented! Made entirely from protein and fibre, Lo-Dough is one of the quickest ways that you can reduce your calorie and carb intake in hundreds of your favourite meals, from pizza to quiche! Each pack of Lo-Dough contains 2 pieces. With 1 piece of Lo-Dough containing less than half the calories, and an incredible 90% less carbs than traditional bakery bread, as well as the added benefit of containing 10 times the fibre.
