Diabetes Forum The Global Diabetes Community Find support, ask questions and share your experiences. Join the community I'm getting really bored of eating / making soup / salad for my lunch every day. I need something that's quick to prepare and easy to eat at my desk, like a sandwich, but not a sandwich! I thought pizza may be a good idea as you can really vary the toppings. Does anyone have a low carb pizza base recipe that doesn't use a zillion expensive ingredients? Or know of a mix you can buy? I have seen a recipe on the internet which uses cauliflower, has anyone tried this? You can make low carb bread and use the dough as the base, but you will still have to watch how much you eat. Try a search on here for the low carb bread recipe, if you can't find it let me know and I will PM it. Hi, I would also do a search for the 'Pizza effect' all that cheese and olive oil can play havoc with your insulin slowing up stomach emptying by several hours, you may find it tricky to bolus for. I got a couple of lo-carb pizza bases for ya - check it out: Mix the cheeses, eggs, garlic powder and basil well. Line a 16-inch pizza pan with parchment paper or nonstick foil. Evenly spread the cheese mixture in the pan, almost to the edge, making it as thin as possible. Bake at 450 15-20 minutes until golden brown. I suggest checking it after about 10 minutes. If it's getting very dark on the edges and top, turn the oven down to 400 and continue baking until brown all over and no longer pale on the bottom. Pat off any excess grease then add your toppings. Keeping the oven rack in the center position, put the pizza under the broiler until the toppings are hot and any cheese you added is melted and bubbly, about 4-5 minutes. Mix all ingredients together in a large bowl. Line a large rect Continue reading >>

This homemade Pizza Dough recipe might just give your favorite pizza parlor's crust a run for its money! Once you learn how to make pizza dough, you'll never turn to a store-bought pizza base again. 1 cup warm water (120 degrees F to 130 degrees F) In a large mixing bowl combine 1-1/4 cups of the flour, the yeast, and salt; add warm water and oil. Beat with an electric mixer on low speed for 30 seconds, scraping bowl. Beat on high speed 3 minutes. Using a wooden spoon, stir in as much of the remaining flour as you can. Turn dough out onto a lightly floured surface. Knead in enough remaining flour to make a moderately stiff dough that is smooth and elastic (6 to 8 minutes total). Divide dough in half. Cover; let rest for 10 minutes. Prepare as directed, except use only the 1-1/4 cups all-purpose flour mixed with the yeast and salt. Using a wooden spoon, stir in as much of 1-1/4 to 1-3/4 cups whole wheat flour as you can.

International-style Pizza

International-style Pizza

Give this family favourite a healthy, fresh twist When it comes to family dinners, who doesnt love pizza? It is tasty and convenient, and can be an easy way to satisfy a variety of tastes. A hot slice fresh from the oven, with cheese and other toppings, might sound tempting. But with many frozen and delivery options clocking in with high fat and sodium levels, is it a healthy choice for people with diabetes? Depending on what [toppings and crust you use], pizza can be a nutritious choice that can be enjoyed by everyone, says Stephanie Boutette, registered dietitian and education coordinator with the Canadian Diabetes Association (CDA). But before you place your order, you should know that making your own pizza is the best option. Its hard to control what is on a ready-made pizza compared to when you make it yourself, Boutette says. Ready-made pizzas may be loaded with cheese, and not have much in the way of vegetables per slice. When you make your own, you get to have control. You can pick the crust and its thickness, the amount of vegetables, as well as the type and amount of cheese and meat. But you do not need to make everything from scratch. International cuisines offer lots of options if you want an easy, ready-made pizza base, from Middle Eastern pitas and Turkish pide, to naan and tortillas (see Flatbread Finder for some ideas). The different types of crusts offer variety in terms of your base, but some may be better options than others, Boutette says. She recommends reading the products Nutrition Facts table and ingredients list (look for whole grains as the first ingredient) when considering different types of international breads for your base, and checking the serving size. Theres no reason you need to limit how often you have homemade pizza, but you also do Continue reading >>

Basic Pizza Dough

Basic Pizza Dough

I love this recipe. I tried making one pizza and it worked amazingly. I am definitely going to follow this recipe again soon. This was the perfect Pizza Dough for our home. Tried many but this was the best. My kids said I perfected it to Pizza Hut dough.I started making homemade Pizza about 4 months now and this was the best, the kids loved it. I made this and cooked one pizza a few hours later. It turned out good. The rest of the dough I put in a ziplock baggie and left in the refrigerator for two days.Day one I took it out and set it on the counter to come to room temp. But I was unable to cook it that day so I put it back in the refrigerator. Day 2 I took it out and let it come to room temp. WOW the yeasty flavor was awesome and the dough cooked perfect. I have a pizza stone and set my oven for 500 degrees the pizza was done in about 10 to 12 minutes... Will do this again soon. This dough is easy its the first homemade pizza dough I made and my family and friends love it.i have used it for about 4 years. The dough was really great. It didn't turn out as sticky as in the recipe for me but still a beautiful smooth dough. The pizza turned out to be the best one I made so far. Thank you very much for your awesome recipe. :) It worked out great! Quick and easy. Ive made it 3x as is and its perfect each time. Made it into garlic rolls for Christmas dinner , I replaced regular salt with garlic salt in the dough -then baked ( about 10min) made about 20 pieces. I rubbed butter over the hot rolls sprinkled with garlic salt and powered parmigiana cheese, a huge hit. My 5 year old grandson requested them today, hes helping me make them !! We are going to eat them dipped in marinara sauce!! I saw that the video said to use 2 teaspoons of sugar but several reviewers said they use Continue reading >>

Easy Homemade Whole Wheat Pizza Crust

Easy Homemade Whole Wheat Pizza Crust

Follow this Easy Homemade Whole Wheat Pizza Crust recipe to make a delicious pizza in your own kitchen Making a pizza homemade, in your own kitchen, is not as hard as someone may think that it is. This pizza crust recipe uses whole wheat flour. Whole wheat flour is preferred by some for various reasons. However, any similar flour can be used in this recipe as well. The trick to making a perfect pizza crust is knowing how to get the right consistency of ingredients. When the right consistency of ingredients is found, the dough for the crust will be light and fluffy with no stickiness. The dough will also have a wonderful smell. Making a crust yourself may seem to take a lot of time. Allowing the dough to rise is important for the process. The perfect rise is important to the taste of the pizza as a whole. This whole wheat pizza crust recipe also calls for no added oils. While some pizza crust recipes call for olive oil to be added, this one does not. This crust is a delicious crust just the same however. Salt gives a bit of taste to the crust that is a nice complement to the whole wheat flour. When added in the correct amounts, salt can improve the texture and fermentation of the dough, making the kneading and fermenting process even better. On the downside, too much salt in the crust can hinder these attributes. You know that you have added too much salt when the dough becomes hard to knead and the dough rises slower than it should. The recipe for my Easy Homemade Whole Wheat Pizza Crust Usinga stand mixer with a hook, making this pizza crust is so much easier to do. Continue reading >>

Low Carb Pizza Crust Recipe | All Day I Dream About Food

Low Carb Pizza Crust Recipe | All Day I Dream About Food

All the best low carb keto recipes for a healthy lifestyle Almond Flour Pizza Crust Low Carb and Gluten-Free Ask many low carbers what they miss most about their old diet, and the vast majority of them will say pizza. I often say pizza, and I was never that much of a pizza fanatic. I was certainly not one of those people who ate pizza every day in university, although I liked it well enough. I didnt go out of my way to eat pizza, but I didnt say no to it either. But on a low carb diet, I often find myself wistful about it Its just that pizza is the whole package, you know? It has the bread and carbohydrates that most people in Western society crave, it has a touch of sweetness from the pizza sauce, and it has meat and cheese and perhaps a few veggies. So Ive long been on a mission to make a really great bread-like pizza crust. Yes, I know there are lots of interesting and healthy low carb pizza crusts, made with things like cauliflower or zucchini, and I think thats all well and good. But I wanted something I could serve to my kids and not see that eye-roll or that look of horror that I had so bastardized one of their favourite foods. That meant that the crust had to be as close to the real thing as possible. It definitely took a few tries to get this one right. My first was good, but a touch on the soggy side. It just didnt quite stand up to the toppings well enough, although the flavour was fantastic. So on the second go round, I added more oat fiber for dryness and structure, and a little less liquid. I also baked it a little longer without the toppings, and a little less with them. Broiling the pizza at the end helps melt the cheese and get it nice and browned. The whole family loved both attempts, and the kids ate it without question, but the second try held toget Continue reading >>

Low Carb Pizza Crust | Diabetic Connect

Was easy to make, and tasted great. The picture says it's not a picture of this recipe, so knew it wouldn't look like that. This is so much better than other low carb recipes. But very rich with all the cheese and eggs. I made this today and it's not too bad. Does taste a little eggy, but that is to be expected. It looked beautiful coming out of the oven, wished I had thought to take a picture. One noteit DOES stick to the pan. Not bad, but enough to be annoying. So I saw this recipe today and decided to try it. With only 5 ingredients for the crust, what can go wrong? The pic of the bread dough is just that- bread (flour)dough. Never the less, the pizza came out fabulous! I had some spaghetti sauce my brother in law made, with fresh peeled Hatch green chili and wow, I'll make this again!! This post looks a little datedhas anyone actually tried this?? Any way to do this with less sodium?? Is the picture of the dough the actual way it looks when you mix it uplooks like regular pizza dough? Do you have a photo of what it looks like when it comes out of the oven? Would love to see.

Zucchini Pizza Crust Recipe

Zucchini Pizza Crust Recipe

Preheat oven to 400 F. Drizzle a little olive oil in a 10" pie pan and coat lightly with flour. Combine the zucchini, eggs, flour, mozzarella, parmesan, basil, and 1 tablespoon olive oil in a bowl and mix well. Spread into the pie pan and bake for 35 to 40 minutes or until golden brown. About halfway through the baking, brush with the remaining olive oil. When it has cooled for about 10 minutes, use a spatula to loosen the crust from the pan so it won't break later. Top with your favorite pizza items and bake at 400 F until heated through. Rachel writes: I've made this a couple of times and everyone really enjoyed it. I use a 10 inch springform pan and remove the sides for the second baking - much more pizza-like! I also made two crusts at once last time and froze the second one for later in hopes of making an impromptu pizza night a little asier! Tammy writes: When I made this the first time, it was soggy and fell apart easily; I had to eat it with a fork. I'm no expert, but I think the zucchini has a lot of moisture in it, so after I chopped it, I let it drain on paper towels like 1-2 hours before using it. The pizza did not fall apart as easily--I was able to eat it with my hands. But no matter how you eat it, this pizza is some good eats! Continue reading >>
