Everyone loves a pizza, and just because you’re on a low carb diet doesn’t mean you can’t enjoy it too!
To celebrate National Pizza Month here are some low carb pizza ideas for you…
See the beautiful photo?? That’s a low carb pizza creation from Joey & Jake at SleepLoveEat.com, made with a cauliflower crust.
See her easy low carb pizza recipe here. This is one I definitely want to try for myself! To make it even better, I thought I might try making a pizza crust from my low carb bread recipes instead. A cheesy, garlicky crust made from Almond Meal sounds so much better than cauliflower! The key of course will be to experiment with the pre-bake time on the crust, then simply broil once the toppings are added.
Speaking of Pizza, Domino’s Pizza has a cool Cal-o-Meter on their website that allows you to build a pizza and see the nutrition facts for the end result. Credit goes to Hungry Girl for this cool find!
I tried out the Cal-o-Meter on a small thin crust pizza with pepperoni & extra cheese, and it comes to 20 net carbs per slice. Obviously the majority of that is in the crust. When I order a pizza, I ask for “light on the sauce, please” and then just eat the cheesy toppings only – and toss the crust.
A waste, you say? Hey, I’d rather it go to waste than go to MY waist! 😉
Happy National Low Carb Pizza Month!
