ZUCCHINI TOMATO PIZZA

ZUCCHINI TOMATO PIZZA

Zucchini Tomato Pizza can be diabetic friendly. Many people who have diabetes, prediabetes, or would like to lose weight don’t like to eat pizza because of the presence of the high carbs level – the dough. This thin-crusted pizza from organic flour with a low glycemic index of your choice can be beneficial for you. I recommend you test it out to see which flour sits well with you.


ZUCCHINI TOMATO PIZZA: WHICH PIZZA CRUST IS SUITABLE FOR DIABETICS?

Zucchini Pizza
This pizza recipe is a healthier choice because it can be made with the glycemic index flour.
Half zucchini and half tomato on a very thin-crust.

This pizza crust can be made with low glycemic index flour. Besides, it is a good choice pizza for kids. It is half zucchini and half fresh-pressed tomatoes. My daughter prefers tomatoes and I prefer zucchini.


Of course, you shouldn’t eat pizza every day but once in a while is okay. It depends also if you eat lots of bread on a daily basis. For example, I don’t.


I buy one small loaf of rye bread and we eat the bread for a week. I am not a big fan of the dough products. So, it all depends.


WHICH FLOUR IS THE BEST FOR DIABETIC? (LOW GLYCEMIC INDEX)

If you are a frequent consumer of the bread then read this article about how to choose the best healthy flour with low GI for you. You may even test it in a 50:50 ratio. For example, try rye flour with all-purpose, or semolina with all-purpose et cetera.



I do my pizza with a stoneground white flour. Sometimes I use all-purpose flour. Besides, I make the pizza crust really thin.


I have tried to make pizza with alternative flours. Unfortunately, I can’t stand it. I tried baking with almond, tapioca, coconut flour, but the result was always the same. Tasteless. The experience of using alternative flours was the mostly crumbly crust, nothing like authentic pizza should taste.


Therefore, you need to experiment with different flours and test them out which one you enjoy the most. As I mentioned above, you can try the 50:50 ratio.


PIZZA SAUCE…

For the pizza sauce, I use the fresh-pressed tomato with garlic and drizzled olive oil for better taste. It is a better and easier version to make delicious and healthier pizza sauce. After mixing sauce ingredients together and brush it off on the pizza dough. For the zucchini side, I used simple garlic sauce described in the recipe.

Notes

You can as well make it with caramelized onions. It gives extra sweetness to the zucchini part of the pizza. Just stir 1/2 sliced red onion, 2 tbsp olive oil and  2 tsp of brown sugar for few minutes until the red onion is soft.  Then add on the dough before you top it with the zucchini. I used little of lard as well for better taste. But it is optional.
