As much as I love cooking, there are some nights when I absolutely just can’t be arsed.

For these kind of evenings, it’s always wise to have a couple of recipes up your sleeve that are fuss free, can be made from ingredients that you’ve probably already got in your fridge, and can be on the table in hardly any time at all.

This Slimming World pizza calzone ticks all of these boxes, and has just a tiny fraction of the Syns and calories of its takeaway shop counterpart.

Why not give it a try this weekend?

Is this recipe really completely Syn free?!

Yes! As long as you’re using the cheese as part of your Healthy Extra A, and the Weight Watchers wrap as part of your Healthy Extra B, your Slimming World pizza calzone is Syn free.

If you’ve already used your allowances though, then you’ll need to budget extra Syns.

Coming in at just 240 calories, the Slimming World pizza calzone is also a great option if you’re a calorie counter.

Mixing and matching your Slimming World pizza calzone fillings

Ham and mushroom is my favourite calzone filling, but you can get creative as you like. This kind of recipe is a great opportunity to get in some more speed foods, and use up anything that you might have in your fridge.

You could try peppers, pulled chicken, tuna, olives, fresh tomatoes, or anything else you might fancy.

You’ll notice that I’ve used light mozzarella cheese, and the main reason for this is that I find it’s less greasy when melted than some alternatives, so the wrap stays nice and crispy once cooked. Of course though, you can experiment with your favourite cheese if you’d prefer.

Serving your pizza calzone

This pizza calzone makes a filling meal, so you might find that it’s enough to serve it with a leafy salad.

If you’re really feeling hungry though, you could cook up some Slimming World chips as a side dish.
