This is sooo good!! The bread is not needed. I only used broccoli, no carrots or cauliflower. Great lower carb low fat recipe! Definitely curbs the pizza cravings. I sprinkled a little grated parmesean on top. Perfection!
Note: This was designed as a fat free recipe by Fireshifter. Recommended is either FF pizza sauce or homemade pizza sauce with no fat if you want fat free which makes Zaar's nutrition because the changes ATE the FF part of the pizza sauce in the recipe just as it ate the second ingredient and turned it into a duplicate of the first. It was suppose to be spaghetti sauce. You may want to take this into account when you make it. Philocrates aka Dr. House Just here to correct a recipe.
I made this very simple and quick recipe for lunch today and my hubby came into the kitchen saying, "It smells like you're making pizza!" Not only did it smell good, it tasted great! Thanks for posting it!
