Pizza for Diabetics

Pizza for diabetics, made with a low-carbohydrate tortilla.

Pizza for diabetics ?  Yes, diabetics can eat pizza. When I found out I was a type 2 diabetic I was  depressed and angry about not being able to eat the foods I like. Pizza just happened to be one of them.

But I was determined not to let this disease control me or the way I eat.  So I decided to find ways I could make whatever I wanted and still keep my blood sugar under control. I did a lot of searching , asked a lot of questions, and tried a lot of different recipes. I not only bugged my doctor  but I went to see a dietician at a local hospital which turned out to be a waste of my time. Then one night while fixing soft tacos an idea came to me...why can't I use  low carbohydrate tortilla for the crust of a pizza? I then went to work finding the best way to using tortillas for different types of crust. I fried them to make a crispy crust, and I tried them plain  hoping the crust would get a little crispy when baking but it turned out a little too soft for my liking. I had some friends over and I made pizza for all of us. Some liked them soft and some liked them crisp. You can have whichever you like.

Here is my recipe for a single personal pizza.

To make it a crispy crust you can butter (or use spray cooking oil) the tortilla and brown it in a skillet before adding the toppings. Or bake it in the oven to make it stiff. You may have to use a low setting or it will burn on the bottom.

Low-Carbohydrate tortillas (6 in.) fried, baked or plain

Top tortilla with pizza sauce(about 1 1/2 tablespoons)

add grated mozzarella cheese

chopped green peppers(option)

chopped onions (option)

Meat (chopped ham, cooked beef, cooked crumbled sausage, pepperoni or whatever you like)

Or add your favorite toppings.

Bake in 450*F oven for about 3 minutes or until done.

(I like it when the cheese begins to bubble and turn brown)

Serve with a nice fresh crisp salad with apple cider vinegar and oil.

The vinegar helps lower  blood sugar so you can enjoy your  pizza without any worries or guilt.

There is only 5g of true carbs in the tortilla and around 1.5g in the sauce.

Happy Eating
