Didn’t I tell you that we can have pizza that is low carb, gluten-free, sugar-free and low glycemic? Well, here’s a recipe for you. My husband, who is type II diabetic, thinks he’s gone to heaven since he’s able to eat pizza now.
Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
Make the Low Carb Stromboli Dough Recipe from My Montana Kitchen. Put the dough between two pieces of parchment paper (Martha Stewart would be so proud), and roll or press out into a circle or rectangle. Chilling the dough first would probably make the rolling or pressing out process easier, but I’ve been too impatient to try this so far. Sometimes I’m just in too much of a hurry. Anyway, don’t worry if your dough looks unfortunate. This is an “artisan” crust and pizza in the making, so it’s not going to look cookie-cutter perfect like one of those pizzas that comes in a box. Certainly some of you out there can roll this out just perfectly but I don’t qualify. My grandmother taught me how to bake, and would not be pleased with my failure to chill this dough. Remove the top piece of parchment paper. I find it easier to just bake the dough still on the bottom piece of parchment paper because it sticks to the bottom piece (I hear my grandmother saying “probably because the dough isn’t chilled.”) Bake for 10 minutes and remove from oven. A pizza peel does make the process of putting the pizza in the oven, and removing it much less tedious and dangerous.
Add the following toppings:
- Pizza sauce – no sugar added (I used Great Value Pizza Sauce from Walmart)
- 2 Cups Shredded Mozzarella
- Bell Pepper, Diced
- Onion, Diced
- Additional Toppings (Of Your Choice)
After prebaking the crust, spread layer (not too thick) of pizza sauce on the crust, layer the cheese and additional toppings. Bake (still on the parchment paper) at 400 degrees for 14 minutes or until cheese is bubbly and partially brown. Serve with a nice green salad, and maybe a glass of red, red wine. Enjoy!
