Sugar Free Detox Inspired Pizza

Sugar Free Detox Inspired Pizza

Every year or so I do a sugar detox to reset my sugar meter. Though it's difficult, a detox leaves you with a realistic assessment of just how much sugar you actually eat. Towards the end of this particular detox I was getting desperate. Meals were getting repetitive and I was craving pizza.

So I researched, and shopped. Finally, I found the ingredients needed for pizza that fulfilled my detox limitations. That's right, there is such a thing a tasty low sugar/carb pizza. The most difficult task was finding sugar-free pizza sauce and crust. I was also amazed at the sugar content in pepperoni (check your labels!). Once you have that figured out, it's just a matter of topping your pizza and broiling until the edges are golden and crispy (6-10 minutes). YUM!

I made a pepperoni, garlic, mushroom, and roasted broccoli pizza, topped with fresh arugula. I nearly died it was soooo good.

If you don't like coconut tortillas then try a brown rice tortilla (Trader Joe's has great options). They have tapioca flour (which is allowed in limited quantities according to the 21DSD updates), but are restricted to 1 per day (I did the cooked rice to brown rice flour conversion 20g/day = 1 tortilla).

Ingredients

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to broil
  2. Place tortilla on non-stick pizza pan
  3. Place pizza sauce in the center of the tortilla, and using the bottom of a spoon, spread the sauce outwards until it meets the edge of the tortilla.
  4. Add pepperoni and all other toppings except the shredded mozzarella
  5. Sprinkle with shredded mozzarella
  6. Place in oven on middle rack for 6-10 minutes, until edges are golden and crispy

TIPS:  It was very hard to find sugar free pizza sauce, I could only find it in one of the half dozen local organic grocery stores, but thankfully you can also find it on Amazon.
