  1. 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!
  2. 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.
  3. 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!
  4. This truly tasted like pizza! I did add a little low fat mozzarela to the top, and I used yeast rolls instead of french bread. I also had to make a couple of small substitutions (tomato sauce for the juice called for, and basi instead of oregano and no fennel). I used what I normally use for pizza sauce (pasta sauce), and a combination of different colored peppers. I also used part fresh tomatoes (that I needed to use up) and part fire roasted canned. Even though it sounds like it, I truly feel like I kept to the heart of the recipe and it was lovely. Really hearty dinner in a bowl. Thanks!


AND that is the end of this. If the phone doesn't ring? It's me. If you are looking to ask me a question? I'm not here. I won't answer. I do not assure you that the ingredients, amounts or even the directions in any recipe under my two accounts are correct due to the bad directional pointer in the database that is causing problems with the amounts or ingredients. I will also NOT assure you they are correct when the site claims they are fixed. Use at your own risk. They will be correct on my site. End of story. Sigh..
