Easy Healthy Pan Pizza (Vegan/Gluten Free/Paleo/Low Carb)

Hi hi. Because I love being the bearer of good news, let me remind you it’s the end of the week and you now have (easy healthy pan) pizza.

Easy Healthy Pan Pizza- 10 Minute. 175 Calories.

Let me bring you up to speed. Technology and I aren’t getting along right now and it’s pi(e) day today and I’m trying to celebrate with this ridiculously amazing easy healthy pan pizza (pie?) instead of getting off my behind and making a real pie or, heaven forbid, dealing with the number pi. I know. I’m trying.

Anyway, I have fairy tale for you. Once upon a time there was a teenage food blogger propagandist who was working on brilliant post for her beloved readers when a dragon came and invaded her ivory tower. This fearsome dragon is known as WordPress WSOD (White Screen of Death).

The big scary dragon huffed and puffed and blew our protagonist’s server down until there was nothing but (you guessed it!) a white screen… of death. What is our heroine to do?

Naturally, she hops into her Live Chat pumpkin carriage pulled by her Google Chrome mice horsemen and goes to meet the team of Prince Charmings over at Bluehost Tech Support. Once the clock struck midnight, the dragon’s white wall went down and the server went up, but alas, our heroine’s blog header was left behind at the ball.

Our heroine is currently looking for the blog header shoe that fits, but meanwhile she’s using a placeholder header (shoe equivalent: think the Uggs of the slipper world). And they all lived happily ever after dancing into the sunset with pizza. The end.

Just so we’re clear, there is no better way to cope with stress than sleep, deep breathing, and pizza. It’s a fact. I think there’s a study and everything. (Side note: I’ll bet you twenty dollars that study was run by teenagers trying to get free pizza. Just kidding. Make that a shiny nickel.)

The problem with pizza is a) it’s typically terrible for you and b) it’s super finicky to make. Yeast? Rising? PATIENCE? Um, no. I want my pizza and I want it five minute ago, please and thank you.

So I whipped up this easy healthy pan pizza concoction that is a) 175 calories, vegan, gluten/grain free, paleo,  low carb and b) can be in your mouth in ten minutes. I like those stats.

And the answer is yes, I did have too much fun with these photos. I should make pizza more often just so I can feel all fancy and whip out the EVOO.

Yes, this pizza is fancy. If I can get Prince Charming to love it, you will love it too. Just take my word for it and eat. the. pizza. I know. Life can be tough.


VIN (Very important note): The following recipe is not grain free/paleo/low carb, but click here for a version that is.

Easy Healthy Pan Pizza (Vegan/Gluten Free/Paleo/Low Carb)
Prep time
Cook time
Total time
Serves: 1 personal pizza
  • ¼ cup white whole wheat flour
  • 1 egg white (For vegan version, please see note below.)
  • 2 Tablespoons almond milk
  • ½ teaspoon oregano
  • salt and pepper
  • 2 Tablespoons tomato sauce
  • 2 Tablespoons shredded cheese of choice (I use reduced fat. For a vegan version, either use some low fat vegan cheeze sauce or see note below.)
  1. Spray an 8-inch skillet with nonstick spray and set aside.
  2. In a medium bowl, stir together all the ingredients until combined and uniform. Spread in evenly in the prepared skillet. Cook over medium heat for about two minutes, or until the bottom is firm and the top solidified. Spread the tomato sauce and sprinkle the cheese onto the cooking crust, and cook for about three more minutes, or until the cheese is mostly melted. You can cover and cook for a few more minutes or until the cheese is completely melted and slightly golden, and the bottom of the crust is browned. I, on the other land, like to stick the pan (uncovered) under the broiler and broil for a minute or too. Your call. Remove from heat, slice, and serve!
Feel free to use regular whole whet flour, or even all purpose in a pinch. I assume gluten free all purpose flour would work just fine.

Go crazy with the toppings! Just be sure not to add too many because the crust can't handle that much weight. On second thought, don't go crazy.

You can use any kind of cheese you want, vegan or otherwise (see link above).

To keep this recipe vegan, use an egg substitute, such as Ener-g, for the egg white.

There’s a reason I didn’t make a full-sized pizza. Take a bite. You’ll figure it out.

What are your favorite pizza topping?

Cheese. Cheese. CHEESE. Cheese on the crust. Cheese in the crust. Cheese on the cheese. I do like mushrooms, though. But I like cheese more.

    Delightful! And no coconut flour in sight;) I SHALL be making this, and soon. I am a fan of mushrooms, artichokes and sundried tomatoes on pizza, but only if they are spaced out so I can enjoy gobs of cheese unsullied by the presence anything remotely healthful. Yea, pizza!

    • says

      Haha. I was just thinking… this has Ellen written all over it! It doesn’t have coconut and it’s very likeable. 😉

      You understand. Cheese is the answer.

    • says

      Me too! I love pizzas!1 Especially, when it’s homemade. I love its smokey flavor. Oh and you mentioned mushrooms and artichokes.. Those are also my favorite! I love pizzas drowning in cheese..

      I’ll definitely try this recipe too back home!

      Nadine, above the recipe, it clearly states that the recipe on this page is NOT gluten free is paleo, but then I leave a link to the other version of this recipe that is gluten free and paleo.

    • says

      Hi Sarah. In the recipe notes, I clearly give instructions for a vegan version, and I also leave a link to another version of this recipe with a vegan version. Just to make it even more clear, I updated the recipe and left another note in the ingredients list. Hope this helps!

    This recipe is great!
    I just made this for dinner tonight for myself and my family and we all loved it.
    I actually doubled the recipe and added a whole egg to my dad’s pizza and it came out pretty good, it was just a little more doughy.
    I definitely will make this again and again!
    I had mine with mushrooms on top :)

      Stephanie, you absolutely made my day with this comment. Thank you so much for making this recipe, and I’m just thrilled you and your family enjoyed it!

  3. Joy says

    This is insane, is it really only 175 calories? I’m always wondering if the calories stated are accurate cos they’re always so low haha!

  4. Emma says

    Hellooooo tonight’s dinner … thanks for the awesome recipe ! Your dedication to healthy cooking is wicked 😀

  5. Steph says

    I just discovered your web site today, and was so excited to find a recipe that I could make happen with ingredients I happened to have in the pantry and fridge. I replaced the tomato sauce with BBQ and used cheddar cheese. I also added a little BBQ seasoning and garlic to the batter. It really was the jam! Keep up the good work girl! I will be trying out your peanut butter recipe soon :)

  6. yasmin says

  7. Quinn Alexandra says

    Hi, can you help me out on the nutritional info? I’m looking for the calories for just the pure base of the pizza, I love adding different toppings, & this usually doesn’t include cheese. my favorite is spinach, oregano, and avocado if I feel like it, other wise I keep it to a minimum, can you help me out?

  8. Lis says

    pls note I got this recipe from your “gluten free” icon link however this calls for whole wheat flour so… Im assuming this is missclasified

  9. Taylor (: says

  10. Amanda says

    So yummy! I just made this for me and my family for lunch and it was devoured! I love your blog, keep up the good work!

  11. Rachel says

    This is the first recipe I’ve made off your site after discovering your website last night… and it was AMAZING! As a college girl looking for healthy and easy to make meal options, I was thrilled at how delicious and low cal this recipe was. All my roommates were very impressed. Thank you so much for this recipe! I can’t wait to make more :) :)

  12. Jamie says

    Hi! I was wondering what the consistency of the pizza dough should be. Should it be thick like normal pizza dough or runny like pancake batter (since it’s cooked like a pancake)? My attempt was more like the latter, and although it was delicious, it never got crispy.

    Thank you!

    • says

      Hi Jamie! I would describe the consistency as a thick pancake batter. May I suggest stirring the batter longer to make it thicker? Can I help make it better?

  13. says

    hi kelly
    looking at your recipe for bread i feel it would make a great pizza base have you ever tried it for pizza. great site. by the way you do an outstanding job for such a young girl Bravo Dotti

  14. Kathryn S. says

    Thank you so much for the time you put in to these recipes. As someone struggling with bulimia, your recipes help me resist the urge to binge/purge by having an alternative to the foods I am craving.

  15. Sophie says

    I tried this the other night and unfortunately it didn’t work out for me, it stuck really bad to my fry pan, but I will definitely be trying it again (I’m thinking of trying to make it work in the oven).

    When I try it again I will update you on how it turned out.

    I love your blog! Your recipes are amazing

  16. Selena says

    You are a GENIUS! You should give seminars on healthy cooking and talk about things like counting calories, subbing flours, and getting coconut flour to behave. I would totally fly halfway across the country just to go, or you could come to Kansas and spread the word 😛

  17. Samantha says

    This was delicious!!!!! This was the PERFECT portion size and left me happy and full. I used 1% milk and added spinach for a little extra veg; it complimented the pizza great :) Thanks for the great recipe!

  18. Beth says

    I am addicted to this pizza crust! I am lazy, so I use a chopped up piece of Weight Watcher Jalapeno String Cheese. It is quite delicious. I love your recipes! Thank you for being so clever so the rest of us don’t have to be!

  19. Beth says

    I am addicted to this simple and delicious crust! I make it several times a week to take to work for my lunch. Being extremely lazy, I used a piece of Weight Watchers jalapeno string cheese and tomato sauce with garlic, basil & oregano already added. Thank you for creating this! :)

  20. Sydney says

    Oh, I like so many different kinds of pizza. Cheese pizza, mushroom pizza, olive pizza, spinach pizza, and garden pizza (that is just a pizza with an assortments of all kinds of veggies!)
    This looks interesting, it is made on a pan!

    • Dulcie de Kock says

      Pizza has a piece of my heart, too! All of those toppings sound delicious, feel free to add them on your own personal pizza here:-)

  21. Sagan says

    LOVED this pizza! I didn’t even use cheese and was completely satisfied. It was even less than 175 calories when I used salsa, spinach, mushrooms and peppers as toppings. I know most of you would want cheese, which is fine, but still, I haven’t had a guilt-free pizza in forever. Word to the wise though, do NOT use coconut flour, unless you like a pile of crumbly mush. I learned that the hard way….

    • Dulcie de Kock says

      Thank you for you kind feedback, Sagan! I’m happy that you enjoyed this dish:-) The feeling of being able to eat a whole pizza with negative amounts of guilt is invaluable, as is any lesson learned while cooking!
