Who doesn't LOVE pizza?
Who doesn't ever want to live with out pizza?
Who thinks that eating pizza will destroy your diet?
The key to eating healthy with out depriving yourself is to be open to trying new things. I will not kid you and tell you that this pizza is as satisfying as a hot slice of Tony Vespa's pizza with all that greasy cheese, oily tomato sauce and delicious white bread crust, but to be honest, who needs all that in their body anyways?
I call this the diet saving pizza because it really takes away all of your craving for greasy, fattening foods that we are use to allowing ourselves to have. I can't do cheat meals so for me, this pizza saves my diet!
Can anybody else not handle cheat meals?
When I eat cheat meals, I find it so hard to get back into the swing of healthy eating after. I am not the type of person who can splurge on a pasta meal and then not go back and have another one the next day. Healthy eating is a state of mind and a life style, when that life style gets disrupted, I tend to so quickly go back to my old habits. This is why I create healthy meals that never make me feel like I need a cheat meal!
So if you're having some pizza cravings or you just want to try something new.. this pizza is easy, delicious and only 3 net carbs per serving!!
Keep in mind that this is for 8 servings!
I can not stress how important it is to read the serving sizes ALWAYS! This recipe is labeled low carb but only for the specific serving size.
