Low Carb Pizza

It doesn't get any easier than this! 

I cooked 1 pound of mild Italian sausage then drained it on paper towels.  Actually, I wrap it up in paper towels to get rid of as much grease as possible.

Spread about a Tablespoon of pizza sauce (I used a canned pizza sauce that didn't have any corn products in it) on a 6 inch flour tortilla.  Sprinkle with a little shredded mozzarella cheese, add some Italian sausage and add a bit more mozzarella cheese.  Sprinkle with Parmesan cheese and some Italian seasoning and bake for about 10 minutes at 350 degrees.

You can of course use any toppings that you like.  I just thought I'd share how I make pizza to cut back on the carbs.

That sounds good. I need to start cutting back on carbs and calories.
Thanks for sharing. I love to hear recipes. I get stuck cooking the same ole things.

Instead of a flour tortilla, check for the specialty low-carb tortilla (like from The Tortilla Factory or the ones in Wal-Mart neighborhood groceries) or use the recipe at http://lowcarbluxury.com/recipes/recipe-bread22.html (actually most of the site's bread recipes can also be flattened and baked for a deeper dish recipe).

I can make pizza out of anything. The tortilla pizza is great! I've used pitas, English muffins, bagel thins, Naan, you name it!

I never thought of using a flour tortilla for a crust. My husband loves a thin crust this would be perfect.

It’s always interesting to see how others do their pizzas. For about a year now (since I started Weight Watchers last November), I’ve been making my individual pizzas on flatbread. We use the light version “Italian Herb” flavor. I spoon a tablespoon or two of Classico bottled marinara on it (it’s the lowest in sugar), then top with 17 slices (that’s 1 Weight Watcher point) of turkey pepperoni. Then I add sliced mushrooms and green peppers (and olives to DH’s version). Top with 1/4 c. low-fat mozzarella (and sometimes on mine it’s fat-free mozz if I can find it). Bake 10 minutes at 400 degrees. No grease, with genuine pepperoni pizza flavor. YUM! Hugs, Cathy
