Recipe Wednesday: cheat’s pizza and chips

On the Slimming World plan, if I want to order pizza and potato wedges from Dominos, it costs 60 syns.  That’s a lot of syns to have to save for one meal (not that I don’t still do it occasionally!), given that I only have 105 syns to spend in a given week.  As such, one of the first things I did when I started Slimming World was to work out how I could have a lower-syn alternative.  This is the result.

Cheat's pizza and chips
Cheat’s pizza and chips. To make it properly Slimming World friendly, you should also have a side salad to make sure you’re getting your one-third of speed food, but I must confess I don’t always remember to have the salad.

For the wedges: these are standard Slimming World chips/wedges.  Chop potatoes into the desired shape, spray a baking tray with Fry Light, arrange the wedges on the tray and spray some more Fry Light on top.  Bake at 200°C on the top shelf of the oven for 25 minutes.  Free on the Slimming World plan!

For the pizza: for each person, slice two Schar white ciabatta rolls (use one as a Healthy Extra B, 6 syns for the other) in two lengthways, and place on another baking tray.  Mix together some passata, tomato puree, dried basil and dried oregano for the sauce and spread over each ciabatta half.  Split 50g of grated mozzarella per person (a Healthy Extra A) between the ciabatta halves, then top with chopped tomatoes and chopped olives (1 syn for 8 olives).

Once the wedges have had their 25 minutes in the oven, move them to the bottom shelf, and put the pizzas on the top shelf to bake for another 15 minutes.

Oh yeah, and you should make a side salad to make sure you get your one-third of speed food, of course.

When using all Healthy Extras, this meal is only 7 syns, which is a lot less than 60!
