I’ve said it before and I will say again pizza is a lovely comfort food. There is just something about pizza toppings. A good crust is lovely but it’s the toppings that make the pizza. Unfortunately pizza is very high in carbohydrates, but let us not despair, with just a little ingenuity us low carb folks can enjoy pizza in many different forms. Growing up my family would often make pizza out of things like tortillas and bagels. My kids like that too. Recently I posted about our low carb bagels and how yummy they are. Well who said bagels are just for breakfast? Certainly not me. Why not turn them into easy personal pizzas? That’s just what we did for dinner tonight.
Cut the bagels in half, add low carb pizza sauce to each half…I have found about 1tbsp works well. Add your favorite cheeses for pizza and your favorite toppings. Featured above I have some pepperoni, some olives, some mushroom, some crumbled bacon. The sky is the limit for what you want. Bake in the oven, about 425 F and then toss under the broiler for a few minutes to help crisp up the toppings without over cooking the bagels.
Let cool a few minutes, if you can control yourself, before digging in. The best part is how low carb and filling these are. One full bagel is only 2.4 net carbs, which means 1 bagel pizza is only 1.2 net carbs plus about 1g carbs for pizza sauce. Now you can have guilt free enjoyment!
