Low FODMAP pizza bread
In general, I have peace with the fact that I have IBS and cannot eat everything. By now, I have accepted that as a part of myself.
But sometimes, there are moments when I think back to the time that I could still eat everything I wanted. The times that I remember are mainly during high school and the beginning of my years as a student.
Getting a sandwich or snack in the school restaurant in my breaks. Those things that you never consider as anything special, until you cannot do it anymore.
Today I have made a low FODMAP version of one of my all time favourite lunch treats: low FODMAP pizza bread!
I made my pizza bread with the gluten-free mini baguettes from Schär. These baguettes have been certified by Monash and they are easy to find in the Netherlands.
But if you don’t have this brand available, you can use any kind of gluten-free baguette that is also low FODMAP.
Low FODMAP pizza bread: topping ideas
Low FODMAP pizza bread makes a delicious simple dinner or yummy lunch. I topped my pizza bread with a base of tomato paste and a topping of minced meat, mozzarella, tomato and olives.
But you can use every pizza topping that you like.
A few yummy ideas for low FODMAP pizza toppings:
- Pizza Hawaï: ham and canned pineapple
- Flammkuchen: lactose-free cream cheese, baked bacon and the green part of spring onion (also check out my recipe for a low FODMAP flammkuchen pita pizza)
- Pizza Napoletana: black olives, anchovies and capers
- Pizza Caprese: flavourful tomatoes, mozzarella and fresh basil
- Pizza Tonno: canned tuna, mozzarella and the green part of spring onion
- Pizza Pollo: pieces of fried chicken, canned mushrooms, bell pepper and mozzarella
- Pizza Salmone: smoked salmon, fresh spinach and the green part of spring onion. Can be made both with a base of tomato paste or lactose-free cream cheese
- Pizza Crudo: mozzarella, parma ham and rocket lettuce.
I used 1 mozzarella and some grated cheese to make two pizza breads.
Both are low FODMAP. According to Monash University, mozzarella hardly contains any lactose and only contains a moderate amount of lactose at 630 gram or more.
So eating half a mozzarella won’t lead to any problems for most people. Hard yellow cheeses only contain traces of lactose because of the processing and are therefore also low FODMAP.
If you are very sensitive to lactose, you can choose to use lactose-free mozzarella, if this is available in your country.
Or you can only use grated cheese because this contains less lactose than mozzarella does. Nutritional yeast, which is often used as a vegan replacement for cheese, is also low FODMAP. So that is another option.Print

How to make the low FODMAP pizza bread

- Spread half of the mozzarella over the baguettes.
- Shortly fry the minced meat in a pan until cooked. Season with salt and pepper.
- Divide the minced meat over the baguettes. Cut the tomato in pieces and divide the pieces together with the slices of olive over the baguettes.
- Divide the other half of the mozzarella and the cheese over the baguettes. Sprinkle some oregano to taste over it.
- Bake the breads in the oven for 10 minutes.
