Obviously we should not overload the pizza with all the sauce and toppings, but you can have more of these if you try to keep the carbs low.

As with every thing else, moderation is key and advance planning is VITAL so that it can be included in the days meal totals.....

And as has been mentioned below, we should use pizza as a treat, not something we would eat every night....

I try to plan around what I eat that day. I love pizza and I love the crust, of course, which is the worst part for the diabetic to eat. I don't worry about the fat.

We don't have it very often but use store bought ingredients. Try to put on more veggies but as pizza is a treat don't worry about it.

I am curious on something...... are we all just worried about the carbs?? or are we taking in consideration of other things... like fat... added sugar and sodium

not trying to start anything.... but I have been diabetic for 20+ years and have had it under control for last 5yrs.. my boyfriend loves pizza so we have it as a treat... I know ahead of time and plan other meals around it....

when you make your own.... is everything home made??? low sodium and sugar sauce... low fat cheese?? fat free or low fat toppings??

is the recipe easy to make for us working folks or limited time????

Exactly! I try not to cook differently for my family, just maybe present it in a way that we all get what we want/need! Works!

Pizza eggs. What a novel idea. I may try that also....

I have some pita bread in the freezer, bought to make pizzas. But I have been trying to go low carb, so there they sit..... I think I will give them to my nephew. He still eats pita sandwiches......

I bought some smokies the other day, Was really looking forward to them until I realized they had jalapeņos peppers in it. I had just noticed the cheese. I am allergic to all peppers, so I will give him the smokies too (he loves that stuff.) He doesn't make a pizza out of the pita, just rolls everything up and enjoys....But if left open and melted the cheese, it would be like a pizza.... lol

I try to find the small low carb tortillas. They work well for pizza. You could also use scrambled eggs well set and put your toppings on that, cover to melt the cheese.

LITTLE: Yes, the chicken is good!!! I'd never thought about that! And it's good protein, too.

The cauliflower . . . . you really do have to have the time to "fuss". But I suyppose it would be good.

Another thing I've heard done is using small tortillas. But for me, that has a few too many carbs. I could see it, though!

I have heard of the pizza cauliflower crust before, but always seemed like a lot of work. I have also heard of using sliced meats as a base, but I really don't want to be eating processed meats. I love the idea of using a slab of chicken breast. I will have to remember that....

I have a recipe that used cream cheese and other cheese and spices for a crust. It was pretty good. But it took a long time to make.

Just saw an episode of HUNGRY GIRL (now some of her recipes are not my cup of tea) but she made a chicken pizza using a pounded chicken cutlet as the "crust" and topped it with all the usual suspects. Looked good.

Would be interested in how the cauliflower crust works!
