hi, thanks

i tried making a cauliflower pizza crust because i'm trying to cut back on gluten-filled foods. it was too soggy. i ate most of it anyways. tasted like a sad wet pizza, still good though! :?

Cauliflower? I've never heard of that before.

Low-gluten grains make good flatbread (grind, add water, flatten, bake). Add toppings to the flatbread, bake, and eat. It's a crunchy crust, but still pizza.

"bob's red mill" makes an excellent gluten-free pizza crust mix. i will have to add that to my shopping list. no food sound good to eat though lately so i've been trying to at least choke down old favorites.

^ Thanks for the tip! I'm mostly concerned about cholesterol right now, but if it means going Vegan for a month or two, I'll do it.

i seem to bounce between vegan and vegetarian. i eat what i feel my body wants. most animal produces make me extremely sick so i avoid them, but sometimes a piece of cheese or cake is a must!

high cholesterol for many, is more a matter of an [too] acidic body chemistry, than in eating too many saturated fats. the acidic condition is caused by too many sugars [whose associated high-acid condition causes lesions to develop on the interior walls of blood vessels which the body tries to patch over with, you guessed it, cholesterol] such as those featured in refined carbs such as pizza crust. not that pizza is bad but too much of anything including refined carbs is not good. a thin crust [maybe whole wheat?] would be better than a thick deep dish crust. just a thought.

and mama, bob's red mill is some gourmet stuff indeed :thumleft:

indeed.

i'd consider myself a pizzatarian too. i think i just really like making white flour pizza dough though, just wish it didn't feel so heavy in my tummy after eating it.

maybe a thin whole wheat crust would be less filling?
