I love street food; it’s everywhere nowadays and it’s incredibly popular with foodies all over. What’s great about street food is the mash-up of different flavours and cultures. In one trip you can experience the spicy tastes of India and Thailand to the fresh produce France and Spain. A food lover’s heaven!
This weekend (11am – 6pm Saturday 15th & Sunday 16th July 2017), Doncaster is holding its very own pop-up Street Food Festival, Eats From The Streets at Wheatley Shopping Centre. I am super excited and will be heading down there myself. The festival is going to be fun, delicious and unique; visitors will be able to tuck into their food on board a converted double-decker bus, which has been transformed into a dining area.
Vendors serving all kinds of food will be there, including Kao Soi (Thai food), The Dough Rollers (pizza), Pavs Dhaba (Indian food), Four Graces Food (tea, coffee and cake) and Yorkshire T’pas (Yorkshire puddings with luxury puddings). Sounds a-mazing.
In celebration of this event, I had a go at creating my own ‘street food dish’. As I’ve really got into healthy eating recently, I thought I’d make a guilt-free treat that would go down a storm at any street food festival. They’re also really quick to make (just 10 minutes) so really embrace the street-food style. So here you have it, my Healthy Mini Pizza Bites – Street Food Style!
Healthy Mini Pizza Bites – Street Food Style
2 tbsp coconut flour
1/4 tsp salt
1/2 tsp mixed herbs/Italian herbs (or to taste)
Passata or tomato puree
Coconut oil, or one-calorie coconut oil spray
For the toppings
Fresh chili peppers
(These are the ingredients I used to create the toppings in the images shown, but you can use whatever you fancy; be as creative as you like!)
How to make Healthy Mini Pizza Bites
- First, separate four egg whites and whisk them together in a large bowl.
- In a separate bowl, sift in two tablespoons coconut flour, along with the salt and herbs.
- Whisk the dry ingredients in with the egg whites for a couple of minutes until the mixture is soft.
- Heat up a frying pan with the coconut oil, and while it is heating, form the mixture into small pizza shapes with your hands. This recipe should make five pizzas.
- Carefully place each pizza into the frying pan, making sure they aren’t touching each other. Leave to cook for three or four minutes each side.
- Remove the pizza bases from the pan and place on a clean surface. Turn the oven on to 180 degrees.
- Top the pizzas with your preferred topics and put in the oven for around five minutes, or until the cheese is cooked.
- Remove and serve immediately.
Hint: If you want to make more, simply double the recipe. This recipe is for five pizzas, so double for ten, and so on.
