My Endocrinologist told me not to eat anything Sugar Free...it messes up sugar levels and acts just like sugar...if you want the taste of pizza try this...even lower in calories

Baked Portabella Pizza
2 large portabella mushroom, stem removed
1 tablespoon spaghetti sauce, pizza sauce or tomato sauce each one
1 tsp. of Romano or Parm Cheese
1/2 cup mozzarella cheese
1/2 tablespoon sliced black olives, optional
1 slice of red onion, chopped small
1 clove garlic, chopped or minced
Preheat the oven to 375 degrees.
Place the mushroom on a Pam Olive Oil sprayed baking sheet, and fill the cavity of the portabella with the minced garlic, then add the Parm or Romano cheese, raw onion, mozzarella and spread sauce in the cup of the cap. Top with Parm or Romano cheese
Bake for an additional 25 minutes, or until cheese is melted and golden. These are soooo good and soooo easy. Yo9u can also use any ingredients that appeal to you.

I agree with BUNNYKICKS.

I'm not into fake food.
I just made my own recently, and I could control what the contents were, and it was fresh.
It was a grain-free crust, because I do not wish to eat wheat, but that's my choice.

Otherwise, as others have said - a small portion of a REAL pizza, from a local shop, where you can pretty much control the toppings/ingredients is far better, in my opinion.

That kind of product doesn't interest me. I'd much rather have a normal slice of NY pizza, either plain or with veggies for around the same calorie count.

Eating fat doesn't make you fat. Your body needs fat to function and to process certain vitamins (A, D, E and K).

whenever i hear about anything that doesn't have something in it that it is supposed to i wonder what they are putting into it instead? in other words, if you don't have fat in a pizza, what tops it? even the cheeseless vegan pizzas i have made have some olive oil in the crust, a little bit in the sauce and the toppings are generally sauteed in olive oil [spinach and lentil and curry powder or pepper and onions and mushrooms or black bean and salsa].
under 300 cals for a whole large pizza makes it seem like there isn't a lot of what i would consider food in that pizza. and if it's not food then why am i eating it?
and if it's 248 cals for an individual pizza my grocery store has several brands that 1/3 or 1/4 of a large or a personal size would have 200-300 cals. so what would you be saving? especially if sugar free just means granulated sugar free?

I have not tried them. I'd have to say that pretty much, I avoid prepackaged, prepared foods and try to just cook from scratch. So if I want pizza, I make it at home. There are all kinds of recipes and suggestions for making pizza healthier-- whole wheat flour in the crust, low sodium tomato sauce, low fat cheese, etc. You could even make little pizzas using those whole wheat sandwich thins for the crust and then adding sauce and veggie toppings.

I think it's deceptive to say sugar free when they use corn syrup etc. And while fat free *sounds* like a good idea-- our bodies actually need some fat every day. And fat makes stuff taste good. So when they took out the fat, what did they add to make it taste good? That's where they seem to get into adding a lot of gums and fillers and unpronounceable stuff.

I took a look at their site - and instantly noticed something that really irks the heck out of me. "Sugar free"? YEAH RIGHT. There is honey in the crust, and corn syrup in the sauce!!! So it's "granulated sugar free" but certainly NOT "sugar free" in the way the average person understands the phrase.

Duplicitous advertising turns me right off.

I also notice they are *extremely* expensive. Sixty bucks for twelve personal-size pizzas? Geez. That's quite a lot for a pizza that doesn't even contain any actual cheese...

I suppose if they tasted good it might be worth it? But consider me skeptical. I'd rather have a smaller portion of "real" pizza than a full portion of "pizza fascimile." However, to each their own.

Have you tried them? I read about them on another site. Fat free, sugar free 248 calories. I haven't tried them yet, but they were all raving about them. What do you all think.
