Low-Carb Crustless Sausage Pizza

Low Carb Pizza | YUM eating


One of the most difficult challenges I faced these last few days is my inability to eat pizza. Maybe it’s just the convenience of having this frozen delight in my freezer, knowing it 20 minutes I will have a meal that I didn’t have to put much effort into.

 I found low-carb crust recipes made out of Atkins baking mix, flax, almond flour or cauliflower. All of which take some prep work. During the week, I don’t have a lot of time for prep work. On the weekends I could make it, but what if the family doesn’t like the crust? Not only that, I can’t remember the last time we had pizza at the house on a weekend. I prefer to make home cooked meals for kiddo when she’s here because I know she doesn’t get a lot of that at home.

I’ve been thinking about the pizza thing for a while. Checking out the availability of low-carb pizza sauces; realizing I should just make my own. Wondering what the cost would be to make at least 2 of them to try. I spent some time last weekend testing new recipes (which I promise I will post soon) that took ingredients that ate up my grocery budget for the week. But, that is ok. The recipes turned out awesome, and I am feeling better about my food choices with every passing day.

 The other day, BuzzAgent sent me a new campaign for Morning Star. I love Morning Star products, they just haven’t been in my budget these last few years. When I did Weight Watchers many years ago, these items were a staple in my diet. Hubs and I went grocery shopping last night and I had my FREE product coupon with me. When I checked the freezer case I wondered what I was going to be able to get. My old favorites had too many carbs. Then I saw the Tomato and Basil Pizza Vegi Burger. I checked the label, 4 net carbs per patty. I decided to try it, not really knowing what I was going to do. 4 net carbs are a bit high for a meat product, especially when most of them are 0. But, I knew I had to try. I was free after all.

Today I made it for lunch. I cooked one side for 1 minute. Flipped it over and topped with a tomato slice, some mozzarella cheese, and some black olives. I took the rest of the topping and put them on the plate. (Excuse my Hot Wheels plate LOL) Then I warmed it for another 45 second. Then, I took 3 lettuce leaves and wrapped it around the vegi patty. I took a bite. I was in happy heaven. It tasted just like a sausage pizza.

 I was so excited I texted hubs right away. I know he needs to eat better too, but I can’t deprive him of everything he loves. So, he can still enjoy his pizza once in a while and I will keep a box of these handy for those pizza nights.
 5 out of 5 stars for me.
