Diabetic and gluten friendly pizza base!

March 4, 2013

So since Paul was diagosed as diabetic I have been searching for interesting recipes that are diabetic friendly.

We, as a family LOVE pizza and unfortunately pizza bases are a no no for Paul.

I found this recipe on Pinterest over here and decided it sounded yummy.  I adjusted the recipe to make 2 bases.

Ingredients

  • 4 cups raw spinach leaves (I used young spinach from Woolies)
  • 2 large eggs
  • 2 cups grated low fat cheese (again I used from Woolies)
  • Salt, pepper, seasoning to taste

Method

  • Heat oven to 180°C.
  • Blend spinach leaves until they look like baby food, this drastically reduces the volume of the spinach, I panicked but it was ok in the end.
  • Add eggs and blend.
  • Add in cheese and spices and blend until just combined.
  • The original recipe says that you HAVE to use parchment paper on your baking sheet/pizza pan because it sticks.  I didnt have any so I Spray & Cooked the shit out of my pans and it was absolutely fine, nothing stuck!
  • Once you have lined/sprayed your pan, pour half the mixture into the middle of the pan.
  • With the back of a spoon, slowly push down on the mixture so that it forms a thin, even circle on the pan,roughly the size of a medium pizza base.
  • Place the pan in the oven and bake for about 15/20 minutes or until the edges are brown and crisp.
  • Remove from the oven and add your tomato base, cheese and any toppings you like.
  • Return to the oven until the cheese has melted.
  • Remove from oven and cut into slices.

Enjoy!

Oh… Apparently you can make a cauliflour base too!  That is next on my list to try!
