This is the closest I have come to actual PIZZA pizza. The caulifower crust is awesome, but not as pick-up-able. The meat crust is kinda like a thin meatloaf with topping...not that there's anything wrong with that. But this...THIS is really like real pizza...but one gives you 4 slices, anyway you want it, and right around 500 calories, depending on what you add for toppings. If you use the low carb pita and not so many veggies, it stays pretty low carb too.Submitted by CYNDIDAVISUSA

My hubby can't have regular tartar sauce because of the added sugar/high fructose corn syrup so I make it at home. Super easy, I would never buy it in a jar again. Can be made way lower calorie with light mayo. Mt Olive NSA products can be found at Kroger and Safeway. I actually use French's Horseradish Mustard, but Annie's would work too.Submitted by CYNDIDAVISUSA
I got this idea from twice baked potatoes. You can cut the calories more than this if you use fat free or low fat dairy products. So good I could eat it every day. Great way to cut the potatoes out of a meal if you need to...Submitted by CYNDIDAVISUSA
Cookbook creator says: This is so dang good, we have it every couple weeks. I use Sugar Twin, and I use a different kind of salsa every time. Sometimes I cut the chicken up and we use healthy chips to scoop...so good.Submitted by ELAINEHN
Cookbook creator says: This is awesome! I also have a diabetic husband, so I have no sugar even in my house. I used 1/4 cup EACH of brown and white diabetisweet, 2% Calorie Countdown milk from Hood [lower carbs, reduced milk sugars, I get it at WM] & just a sprinkle of cayenne [I know, I'm weird]. Definitely a keeper!Submitted by ~PENNY~
Cookbook creator says: This came in an e-mail...sugar, flour, chocolate chips. Nothing I could make for my Diabetic DH. I got to thinking about substituting stuff...tried it out...holy cow. It's awesome.Submitted by CYNDIDAVISUSA
I make this in a huge 15x10 glass pan, so I have leftovers for lunches, etc. You can cut the amount of everything in half for a smaller size pan. I also use Dreamfield's because of the increased fiber and lower glycemic effect, as my DH is diabetic. Different pasta will have a different count. I sometimes use different cheeses to mix it up a little...use half pepper jack in place of the mozzarella cheese makes it a spicier dish.Submitted by CYNDIDAVISUSA
