I like eggplant slices or portobello mushrooms grilled, then stuffed with chunky tomatoes (spice like pizza sauce) and topped with part-skim cheese. Run it under the broiler so the cheese melts.

I read a recipe that basically added pureed pumpkin to the sauce.
I mix equal parts pizza sauce (thicker than spaghetti sauce) with pumpkin puree (not pumpkin pie filling). I like to add a bit of italian or pizza seasoning to it (Penzy's has a frozen pizza spice mix that is really nice).
Trader Joe's has 80 calorie pita bread. I carefully split the bread and put a thin layer of sauce on it (less than 30 calories). 8 slices of turkey pepperoni (65 calories) spread between the two. 2 T shredded 2% cheese (it will melt, fat free will not melt). less than 100 calories. put in toaster oven or grill briefly to melt cheese. yum.
You can pile on any other toppings you like.
I really don't like whole grain products, but I am sure that there are products that would suit whole grain eaters.

Oh yes that's a great idea to add the finishing touch of the oregano to even achieve the 'smell' of authentic pizza. Thanks for the tip!

I begin w/ a tortilla shell, everything bagel thin or an english muffin for my "crust". I add the sauce, 1 broken slice of provolone cheese (it has more flavor than mozzarella) then veggies- onion, green pepper, mushrooms..... Those veggies can be microwaved on a paper towel to absorb the moisture. To accomplish that "pizza" smell and taste sprinkle oregano over the veggies, either before microwaving or on top of the cheese. If pepperoni is a must for you use turkey pepperoni. Broil or put in a toaster oven, until cheese bubbles and begins to lightly brown.

When I feel like cooking which doesn't happen often, I make the crust out of meat (your choice) onions and a bit of the sauce (low sugar/sodium) bake on parchment paper until browned and then flip, bake 5 min. or so; take out leave on cookie sheet, and add toppings of your choice more sauce if desired, bake until cheese is melted. I use parmesan, b/c it has bold flavor for few cals.
OR
I buy a lean cuisine single serving French bread pizza; sodium isn't bad (considering its boxed) has nice flavor and only 300 or so cals. Pair it with a salad, milk, and/or fruit and you get pretty full.

If you have a craving for the real thing, Get a thin crust veggie pizza

If you think you can substitute, get some low calorie bread, tortillas, or flat bread for the base. Add all the sauce, veggies, and grilled chicken strips you want plus a sprinkling of cheese. Yum

Try using a low carb wrap or tortilla. They are usually hidden somewhere at the grocery store.
Make your own pizza sauce, low calorie and carb.
Use grated strong cheese of your choice. The sharper the cheese sparingly.
This works for me.

I make my own from pre-made crusts, add very little chese and lots of vegs, plus maybe turkey pepperoni which is low in calories. This means I can have it almost anytime I want it.

My favorite food is pizza. If I am craving a piece of pizza I eat it. But when I order pizza I always get a salad and then only eat one piece. That way I don't feel like I am depriving myself of the foods that I love. Good luck

I buy a box of frozen French Bread pizzas each month, usually pepperoni. There are two to a box, which allows me to have it about twice a month if I want. I don't like the diet brands. I get Red Baron or Stouffers, if one or the other is on sale. One or the other has a few more calories, I forget which. To me they satisfy three things, something lazy to fix, something crunchy, and something pizza like. They are a terrible sodium hit though and not exactly low in calories, so with one I'll have a green salad and no other carbs. The nice thing is that they are "there," if I get in a pizza mood and don't want to fool with cooking. I cook one in the toaster oven and add a few halved black olives on top. Also, they are self limiting! Once I've eaten one, unless I want to go to the freezer and get the other one to cook, that's it! No further temptation.

As others have done, I've also at times made mini-pizzas on English muffins and all sorts of tortillas. I may just use Ragu, and add black olives and mozarella or pepperoni, turkey or real.

I've also made a sort of a pizza "hot pocket" with a folded chapati (Indian flat bread) folded and browned in the skillet with fillings.

Ever try Mexican Pizza? Multigrain flour tortilla topped with salsa to suit your spiciness taste. Add veggies you want, but good here are mushroom slices, zucchini slices, 2 each sliced black and green stuffed olives, then sprinkle with garlic powder and oregano, top with 2Tbsp. Shredded low fat mozzarella. Bake at 350 degrees for maybe 20-25 min. Or til cheese has melted and pizza is hot. A filling meal in itself. Try! Taste! Enjoy!

Maybe you'll think this is cheating, but I keep an Amy's gluten-free spinach pizza in the freezer for when I'm craving pizza. It's 350 calories, and if I add a side salad, it's a satisfying, healthy, cravings-busting dinner! Plus, super easy for when I've had a hard day and feel too tired to cook.

Slice a low-cal whole wheat pita bread in half.
Lay half a slice of the pita bread on baking sheet.
Top with some low-sodium tomato sauce that you have mixed with Italian seasoning and a little garlic powder.
Add 1/4 cup cooked ground turkey or sliced turkey sausage (drained and patted with paper towels) on top.
Sprinkle 2 TBS skim mozzarella cheese. Bake until bubbly.

I totally agree with ENGINEERMOM. IF I crave pizza, I eat it, but watch the portion size. Here is a simple, quick fix that I sometimes have. I take Wheat Thins and open them up, spread some jarred pizza sauce on (or you can take tomato sauce and sprinkle with Italian seasoning). Top with your favorites (I like turkey pepperoni, onion and mushrooms). Top with Provalone Cheese and put in the oven at 450 degrees until cheese is melted.

Today is the first day of the rest of your life.

I eat pizza.

Seriously, though, pizza isn't typically something I crave because we have homemade pizza every Friday night. We make our own pizza at home completely from scratch, so I have complete control over what goes into it, how much cheese or toppings go on, etc. And, of course, how much of it I eat! Sometimes I get creative, but most of the time, we make it exactly the same way - sausage and onions cooked with red wine, kalamata olives, green peppers, mozzarella, and a "homemade" sauce that's really just our favorite jarred spaghetti sauce blended with a can of tomato paste, all topped with raw tomato slices after it comes out of the oven.

I've tried a bunch of different variations on the crust, and decided that white flour with some added gluten just tastes the best, and once a week, given that pizza is pretty much our only source of white flour, it's not going to kill us.

Knowing that Friday night is pizza night, I plan ahead. My long-distance runs or bike rides are typically on Saturday morning, and that is to help use up the excess of carbohydrates from Friday's pizza night. I make my favorite vegetable, steamed broccoli, to munch on while I'm making pizza to help fill me up so when the pizza is done I don't feel the need to eat the whole thing just because I'm hungry. I aim for lots of veggies and protein during the rest of the day to compensate for the huge carb load that pizza is to bring my whole day into balance. I make the kids' pizza first (plain cheese, not my thing). When I do get the pizza done, I focus on enjoying it, not mindlessly eating it in front of the TV. I carefully slice the raw tomato super-thin to slide on top of the piping hot pizza just after it comes out of the oven, and I pay attention to what I'm eating.

I thoroughly enjoy pizza night, and knowing it's going to happen every Friday night, I don't feel deprived when turning down less-worthy pizza that may be offered during the week.

I think the best way to deal with and even avoid cravings is to indulge them in a conscious, responsible way. If I'm going to eat like this for the rest of my life, it has to be sustainable.

Besides, it's kind of fun to learn how to make your favorite restaurant foods and then tweak them to fit your own diet "budget". :-)

Take life one day at a time - enjoy today before you worry about tomorrow.

Whole wheat crust cooked.
Once out of the oven, spread w/ a very thin layer of light/ fat free ranch.
Top w/ shredded lettuce and tomatoes.
Crumble cooked turkey bacon over the top.

You can have your pizza and eat it, too!

I usually make my own on pre-made thin whole wheat crusts I buy at the grocery store, but barring that:

you can order pizza in and not break your diet. Have you ever tried pizza without cheese? I am honest when I say that you will not notice a difference. Mozzarella barely has any flavour at all - you will NOT miss it! And cutting out the meat on your pizza (or going for chicken instead of standard pizza toppings) also omits a LOT of fat and sodium, not to mention nitrates. So this is what my go-to is:

thin, whole wheat crust (yum!)
no cheese
light on the sauce (you don't want toooo much if you're without cheese to mellow it out)
onions, red peppers, tomatoes and broccoli.

It's SO good, you feel like you're treating yourself, and it's not NEARLY as bad for you.

Hope you find this handy!

When I crave a real pizza, I have one delivered during family night! Thin crust mushroom pizza, lite on the cheese and plenty of mushrooms! One or two slices and a salad, cravings gone! If other family members want other toppings, I order a personal size thin crust mushroom or veggie, lite on the cheese for me. Otherwise if its just me alone and I crave a pizza type flavor , I place some spaghetti sauce, cheese, and a veggie topping on a sliced english muffin and place under broiler until cheese is melted.

My son is a wrestler and can't afford the calories and the fat, so last night I made the cauliflower crusted pizza. It really was good, and the only fat we had was from the cheese, and the egg. It really was good, I thought it would taste more like cauliflower, but it has been so long since I have had regular pizza, that I really didn't miss it much. You have to really get the water pressed out of it, and making two thinner crusts, is better than one thicker one.

I make a pizza when I crave one. I found some 170 calorie thin, whole wheat pizza crusts that I use, and I pile on the toppings- Usually tomatoes, garlic, artichoke hearts, mozzarella cheese and some sort of meat- Sausage or chicken, or whatever I have that is handy.

I have also made my own pizza dough, but I don't always have the time to actually make it (time, and patience, if I am being honest). The nice thing about that is you really control what you are getting and the calories. Plenty of nice recipes out there, including some wheat free versions (like a cauliflour crust).

Good luck!

Sometimes I make a pizza on a pita pocket. I put some pizza sauce on it. Then veggies. I like onions and what ever sounds good at the moment. You could put some cooked chicken, pepperoni or something like that. Then cheese on top of that. Bake in the oven for a few minutes.

I can't have the carbs, so I eat cheese and ham rolled up that I dunk in warm tomato sauce that I flavored with oregano, basil, and a pinch of sucralose. it's a far cry from pizza, but it will do in a pinch

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 sooo easy.

I no longer want traditional pizza....also a mushroom burger is a far healthier option than the 195 calories a ground beef patty provides...maybe try that too.

I crave pizza sometimes, I don't know why, but do. Does anyone have a recipe for getting the taste of it without the tons of calories? I saw a recipe for wheat tortillas with pizza sauce and a small amount of mozzerella cheese heated up and rolled and sliced, maybe I should try that? Just wondered if anyone had any ideas or recipes. Thanks!
