A pizza with HALF the kilojoules of an avocado: New creation invented by food and nutrition students contains just 242 calories – and costs $1

  • Diners can now tuck into a pizza that contains less calories than half an avocado 
  • Dubbed ‘The Impossible Pizza’, the dish has just 1,014 kilojoules (242 calories) 
  • Customers can buy the vegetarian pizza for just $1 via Deliveroo on February 9

Diners can now tuck into a pizza that contains less calories than half an avocado.

The Food and Nutrition team from Victoria University have whipped up the ‘The Possible Pizza’ with just 1,014 kilojoules (242 calories).

The vegetarian pizza, with a cauliflower base, comes with a whole host of good-for-you toppings including red onion, pumpkin, ginger and chilli flakes, topped with vegan cheese.

Customers can buy the revolutionary pizza for just $1, plus delivery via the Deliveroo app on World Pizza Day on Thursday, February 9 – and each order comes with a free exercise ball to sit on.

Diners can now tuck into a pizza that contains less calories than half an avocado comes without the added guilt

The dish contains just 20 per cent of the energy found in a regular pizza, while half a medium size avocado contains 689 kJ (165 calories).

According to Nutrition Australia, the ‘average’ Australian burns 429 kJ per hour (102 calories), and a further 47 kJ (11 calories) per hour from sitting on a stability ball.

‘When Deliveroo came to us with the idea to create a pizza without the traditional kilojoules associated, the students couldn’t wait to get started,’ Victoria University Professor Andrew McAinch said.

‘The pizza created by student Narelle Bickford, is not only delicious, but it’s a meal that can be consumed without having to endure hours in the gym to burn off, which is every pizza lover’s dream, and significantly contributes to your consumption of the recommended five vegetables per day.’

To enjoy the pizza guilt free, Deliveroo riders will be delivering turquoise exercise balls alongside the pizza to those who order the dish via the app. 

Accompanied by simple instructions, users will be invited to sit on the stability ball for one hour to burn the kilojoules required. 

‘World Pizza Day 2020 will forever be remembered as the date Deliveroo revealed its breakthrough in the world of culinary science: The Impossible Pizza,’ Deliveroo’s Joe Satari said.

‘We’d encourage all Australians to mark the occasion and celebrate guilt-free with their favourite local pizza, regardless of the kilojoules.’
