Gluten & Dairy Free Pizza

Is there such a thing? Pizza with no grains for the base and no cheese. We had a craving, got creative and ended up satisfied. Give this meal a try and definately experiment with the toppings.

Ingredients:
Organic, sugarless tomato paste
Oregano
Meat – salami, chorizo, pepperoni
Vegetables – spinach, mushrooms, bell peppers, etc
Eggplant
Spices to your liking

Directions:
Slice the eggplant long ways or in cylinders; I prefer long-ways even though the pictures show cylinders. Place on the oven grates and back for 15 minutes on 375 F. Carefully pull out of the oven and place on a cookie baking sheet. Add the tomato base and begin to build your pizza. Bake for another 10 minutes, same heat, and then you are done. If you build your pizza without cheese, I suggest spraying some nice olive oil ontop before you begin to eat.

Overall, I was very pleased with what we made and my blood sugars liked it just as well. The pizza base is very low carb and the fatty meat provided good flavor and balanced the macronutrutient (protein to carb to fat) ratio. Even for the non-diabetic this pizza has a low insulin response.

Cheers to you and good health!
