Supermac’s and Papa John’s Menu Smartpoints 

Now I think Curry Chips with Cheese is purely an Irish thing but I could be very mistaken & sure where else would you get such a culinary delight but only in our very own home grown Supermacs! Here are all the Smartpoints for some yummy treats if you’re visiting and considering chicken & protein are our new best friends on plan some of the Smartpoints are very reasonable indeed. I like to be armed with the information so if I’m caught off guard or I’m planning a treat at least I can make an informed decision on what the best options are for me. I hope you find it useful too x Continue reading

Sweet Piccolo Tomato & Creamy Mozzarella Grilled Pitta Pizzas with Fresh Basil & Red Onion

  
Culinary elaborations have their time and place but sometimes the simple quick and easy ideas are best. Pitta pizzas are so versatile you can basically put whatever you fancy on them peppers, mushrooms, ham, pineapple, chicken the list is quite endless. This was lunch today coming in at 7 propoints but you could easily make this for 5pp as I didn’t have any weight watchers pitta breads in the house and these are full fat white pitta breads from Aldi which are 5pp each (you can have this on filling and healthy for just two pro points for the cheese if you use the weight watchers pittas). I hope your Wednesday is wonderful!   
One pitta bread

A squeeze of Passata 

1 Tbsp of tomato purée 

A sprinkle of oregano

Salt and black pepper

Piccolo tomatoes halved

60g reduced fat mozzarella

Red onion sliced

Fresh basil leaves  

Toast the pitta bread in a toaster or under a hot grill and slice open lengthways into 2 halves, be careful of escaping steam. Mix together the passata, tomato purée & oregano and season with salt and pepper. Spread generously over each half of the pitta bread. Slice the tomatoes and red onion and lay on top. Dot the mozzarella across the pizzas and season with salt and pepper. Place under a hot grill for 3 to 4 minutes until the cheese is melted and bubbling. Garnish with the fresh basil leaves, devour and enjoy!  

Sumptuous Creamy Goats Cheese, Velvety Parma Ham, Spinach & Balsamic Glazed Red Onion Petit Pain Pizzas

  
A bit of a posh lunch today! I have made petit pain pizzas before using many variations and decided to give them a decadent twist today using creamy goats cheese and beautiful Parma ham, it is the weekend after all! It’s a little bit of effort caramelising the onions but worth every second. These come in at a very healthy 6 propoints (or 3 pro points on Filling and Healthy). Here’s the skinny:  
1 Weight watchers petit pain 

One red onion finely sliced

30 g of goats cheese

One slice of Parma ham

A good handful of fresh spinach

2 teaspoons of Balsamic vinegar

Tomato purée 

Salt and black pepper  

Bake the petit pain as per packet instructions and set aside to cool for 10 or 15 minutes. Fry the onion in a medium saucepan sprayed with oil over a low heat for about 10 minutes until soft them add the balsamic vinegar and cook for a further 5 to 10 minutes until the onion is broken down, caramelised and brown. Wilt the spinach in a saucepan over a medium heat this will only take a few minutes. Always put on more spinach than you think you’ll need it shrinks down to nothing. Split the roll in half lengthways with a sharp knife. Spread on a small bit of tomato purée on each half & layer the spinach on top then add a layer of the onion. Arrange the Parma ham on top split evenly between the two pizzas. Slice the goats cheese and & lay on top. Season with salt and black pepper. Grill under a medium heat for two minutes or so until the goat cheese is brown and melting enjoy!  

Delicious Thin Crust Cheese & Veggie Pizza

  
The easiest 2 ingredient dough in the world to make, no waiting around for it to prove just knead, roll & top! Who doesn’t like pizza? It’s so versatile you can top this with whatever takes your fancy. Add some Roast Chicken or Prosciutto if you fancy a meat version just remember to add the additional points. Buffalo Mozzarella & Pesto would also be fantastic the dough is 10pp so you can play around with toppings & add points accordingly this one was 14 propoints for the entire pizza. Here’s the skinny:

Strawberry, Raspberry & Mango Chocolate Cheesecake Dessert Pizza with Fluffy Miniature Marshmallows

  I may or may not have just eaten this instead of a proper Dinner, totally disgraceful, I ought to be ashamed of myself but it’s so healthy & low in points I’m not even sorry! Sorry not sorry! The entire dessert pizza comes in at 8pp or just 4pp on F&H if you can even believe it. It serves 2 happy campers so 4pp per person or 2pp on F&H happy days! This one is ultra delicious for sure. You can follow the recipe if you’re inclined to eat pizza for breakfast, dinner & dessert like me!  1 Weightwatchers Tortilla Wrap

50g Lightest Philadelphia Cream Cheese

50g 0% Fat Greek Yogurt

1 tsp Sweetener 

2 drops of Vanilla extract

15g of Chocolate Spread

A Couple of Fresh Strawberries, Raspberries & Mango cubed

15g Mini Marshmallows   Fry the wrap in a pan sprayed with sprayoil over a medium heat for a couple of minutes each side until browning, this crisps up the wrap to hold the toppings without being too soft. Allow to cool completely. Meanwhile mix the cream cheese, yogurt, sweetener, chocolate spread & vanilla well in a bowl & refrigerate for a while to cool. Spread the Cheesecake Chocolate mix generously over the wrap base & top with the fruit & marshmallows. Slice & enjoy! 

  

Homemade Flatbread Cajun Chicken Pizza with Melting Mozarella, Succulent Sweetcorn & Peppery Rocket

  I made this the night after the Flatbread with Chicken Goujons recipe back in February as I had the flatbread dough already made up to hand. Very simple to throw together & a lovely weekend treat. Made for sharing, serves 2 at just 7pp for 1/2 the pizza or 4pp on F&H. Here’s the skinny;

250g Plain White Flour

3/4 of a tsp of Dried Yeast

1 tsp Sugar

1 tsp Olive Oil

A pinch of Salt

2 Tbsps of Fat Free Greek Yoghurt

120ml Water  Mix the Flour, Yeast, Sugar & Salt in a bowl. Make a well in the centre & add the Yoghurt oil & half the water. Mix together & slowly add the rest of the water while forming a dough. Knead the dough for 10 minutes & palce in a bowl sprayed with sprayoil & cover. Leave in a warm place for 1 hour until it doubles in size. Knock back the air by punching the dough & divide into 6 evenly sized balls. Roll out the dough into a thin flat circle. Place on a baking sheet on greaseproof paper & leave for 20 minutes to rest. Fry the flatbread in a pan with sprayoil for 2 minutes each side or until browning in spots & bubbling slightly.  For the Toppings:

1 Egg

Passatta
