Transform the classic Italian appetizer into a mealtime favorite with this Low FODMAP Bruschetta Pizza with Chicken.
On one of my first dates with my now-husband, I tried Caprese bruschetta and couldn’t get over the tasty combination of tomatoes, basil, mozzarella, and balsamic. Lately, I have been combining these classic flavors with chicken in this flavorful and filling Low FODMAP Bruschetta Pizza with Chicken!
Low FODMAP notes
In this section, I share information for certain ingredients that are either frequently asked about or that have suggested serving sizes to remain low FODMAP. We each have unique tolerance levels and nutritional needs. Please listen to your body (and if possible, work with a FODMAP-trained dietitian) to determine what is best for you. For more low FODMAP serving size info, please refer to the Monash FODMAP app and FODMAP Friendly website or app.
Balsamic Vinegar: A low FODMAP serving is 1 tablespoon or 21 grams. Larger servings contain higher amounts of excess fructose.
Garlic-infused oil is a popular way to add low FODMAP garlic flavor on the low FODMAP diet. My current favorite is Colavita Roasted Garlic Olive Oil (technically a garlic-flavored oil) that has been confirmed to be low FODMAP by Monash University. Learn more about why garlic-infused oil is okay in my Low FODMAP Garlic and Onion Substitutes post.
Mozzarella is a low-lactose cheese. The recommended low FODMAP serving size is ¼ cup or 40 grams.
Roma tomatoes can be low FODMAP depending on the serving size. The low FODMAP serving size is one “small” Roma tomato or 75 grams. Large servings contain higher amounts of fructans.
Udi’s Gluten-Free Pizza Crust has not specifically been tested for FODMAPs, however, one serving (½ of one crust) appears to be low in FODMAPs by ingredients. Individual tolerance may vary.
Schär Gluten-Free Pizza Base has been certified low FODMAP by Monash University in a handful of countries, but not the United States. However, when comparing the ingredients for the pizza bases sold in the United Kingdom (certified) versus the United States (not-certified) the products appear identical. (Note: Labeling regulations differ by country, so some ingredients have slightly different names.) So, this pizza crust may be another option to consider.
