If you’re like me, then pizza is one of those things you really miss when you go flour and sugar free. But this recipe is easy and tastes so good, I want to make it all the time. We’ve had it with sliced tomatoes, like pictured above, and with no nitrite pepperoni. I want to try it with sliced meatballs next. Oooo, I also want to try it with a pesto sauce, feta, spinach and black olives. Choose your favorite toppings and eat up, YUM!
