    Pizza alternatives anyone?

    Hi all

    One of my "fall off the wagon" cravings is for pizza, so I thought I'd do a little survey and see what you fab cooks can suggest as an alternative?

    Any base - flax, meat, whatever - all suggestions welcome

    me too... need a pizza right now! I'm wondering if some kind of low carb pancake with pizza toppings on and then grilled might work, but i'm not the best at cooking, and the pizza would be all thin and, probably not good. I did just find this info on the net though:

    "Soya Flour has 19.7g carbs per 100g (Full fat) and 28.2g per 100g (Low fat) on average.
    That's Total carbs which we use in the UK.

    Ordinary Flour on average has around 60 - 80g per 100g depending on the type. "

    so I wonder if a (thin to minimise carbs) pizza base could be made using Soya flour? But any flour at all probably isn't all that great due to spiking blood sugars, even at lower carbs. Might be a compromise instead of falling off the wagon completely though.

    I also miss eating burgers, quarter pounders specifically. Read somewhere online that portobello mushrooms make a good burger bun substitute so going to give that a try, bought some this week, and will make the burgers from scratch too with mince because all the shop ones have carbs in. Now, come to think of it, you could probably create a nice little pizza off a portobello mushroom base...

    Now that is a good idea! I made the pancakes last week and they were OK, so maybe fry them so they go crispy before toppings?

    Home made ones are simple and much nicer - and carbfree! I'm going through a curry phase, but you can do cheese ones, herbs, mustard, yum

    Toast a joseph low carb pitta and use as base

    For the most induction friendly- flatten a turkey or chicken breast and top as a pizza

    i mice cooked chicken breast in my blender with some uncooked courgette and 30g of cheese. This makes a sort of 'dough' that i flatten between 2 sheets of baking parchment the grill on both sides. i use this as bread for dips or this morning i had some left over from last night, i topped with butter and pate! I'm sure it would make a nice pizza base too.

    'Pizza'

    I had to try one
    This has, Kabanos sausage, green pesto, mozzarella, baby plum toms, black olives and rocket. It was lovely, the only think i may do differently is make the base slightly thicker and grill it more. Other than that i think i'm onto a winner. Total carbs including the 'dough' i mentioned above is 6.5g!

    I use omelette as the base, and put whatever toppings I fancy on it, then top with grated cheese and grill.
    Last time I had tuna, anchovies, prawns, red onion, bit of feta-Yum Yum!!!

    I've narrowed it down to 2 pizza crusts to try: the cauli one (mentioned above and there's one in the recipe thread) and the flaxseed one (ibreatheimhingry.com). Has anyone tried them and got any thoughts on which one is better?
