My favorite diabetic vegetarian pizza recipe. I like this recipe because it is easy to make and a little different since it is a white pizza. This recipe uses one of those refrigerated pizza crust you find in a can at the grocery store.Admittedly, this recipe has a bit more saturated fat in it and sodium. However, it has been specifically approved by a host of nutritionist and doctors from the CDC and NIH specifically for diabetics. As such, don’t eat it every day.

Ingredients

  • 2 tablespoons Whole Wheat Flour
  • 1 can Pizza Crust
  • Fat Free Cooking Spray
  • 2 tablespoons Olive Oil
  • 1/2 teaspoon Dried Basil
  • 1/2 cup Low Fat Ricotta Cheese
  • 1 Small Onion
  • 2 tablespoons Garlic (minced)
  • 4oz Low Fat Mozzarella (minced)
  • 2 cups Mushrooms (chopped)
  • 1 Red Pepper (thinly sliced)

Directions

Step 1.Preheat oven to 425 degrees Fahrenheit.
Step 2.Chop or slice the pepper and mushrooms.
Step 3.Spread flour on flat surface. Roll out pizza crust on top of the flour and roll out to desired thickness with rolling pin.
Step 4.Spray baking sheet with non-stick cooking spray. Put crust on sheet and brush with the olive oil.
Step 5.Mince the onion and garlic. Mix with basil and ricotta cheese. Spread on crust.
Step 6.Distribute mozzarella cheese evenly over crust. Do the same with the mushrooms and peppers.
Step 7.Bake pizza for 13-15 minutes, until the crust bottom is golden brown. Keep an eye on the crust so it doesn’t burn.
