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. As such, don’t eat it every day.
However, the recipe has been approved by a host of nutritionist and doctors from the CDC and NIH specifically for people with diabetes.
