    This recipe turned out very well for me. I added a lot of fresh, flavorful veggies: green peppers, mushrooms, onions, and rinsed black olives. I brushed the crust with Low Sodium (15mg) Italian Dressing (http://www.geniuskitchen.com/recipe/italian-dressing-low-sodium-14375?ftab=reviews) before adding the recipe's pizza sauce. I used pepperoni, but I put it in a colander and pour lots of boiling water over it to rinse away the fat and sodium. It ends up being a very bland version of pepperoni, but the flavor and texture is still there. I also grind some cracked pepper over the pizza to add back some of that pepperoni flavor I washed away.

    The worst low sodium recipe I've tried so far. I'm getting used to my husband's customary comment, "needs salt," since starting a sodium restricted diet, but this pizza just didn't redeem itself. No flavor, blech!
