The sauce and meat mixture was really flavorful. The crust, however, was awful. Very poor texture and did not have good flavor. Would everything but the crust recipe next time.

Thanks for this recipe. It's a great thing to be able to include pizza in our diet again.

Is the tablespoon of sugar vital to the dough? Or could I cut it to half a tablespoon? I just know my Grandpa needs to watch his sugar intake and want to make sure it is ok for him to eat. Dietitian comment: The sugar helps the yeast grow faster. You can omit it or decrease to 1 teaspoon, but allow longer for the dough to rise or use rapid rise yeast.

can I use flat bread instead of the dough for a quicker meal? how would that affect the nutrients? Dietitian comment: Yes, flatbread is usually lower in sodium compared to pizza dough. Potassium and phosphorus are similar.

how much can you eat? Dietitian comment: The serving size is 1 slice but many people can easily include 2 slices in a meal if protein is not restricted.

Each slice is only 1/2 oz of cheese...that's 75 mg of phosphorus, which is pretty low eat several pieces but remember TAKE YOUR BINDERS! :)

Ok so as much as I love pizza, with the cheese, there is phosphorus in it, and I seen that each slice has only a 1/2 oz to keep it low but what else is there when or diet says no cheese or milk product, then what do we do then?

Made this for myself. Shared with a neighbor. I enjoyed it and plan on making again when my craving for pizza rears its head.

We really love this recepie. Instead of meat we use Smart Deli Veggie Protein 'Pepperoni' slices which have no choloesterol and low in protein. Other times we use ground turkey intead of the red meat. We also use a pizza stone with a little white corn meal on the bottom to prevent sticking. it makes for a lighter, cripyer crust.

I cant believe this! 6oz of cheese. Im begining to think of a dietition says its ok then its ok. If a patient made this up then it wouldnt be ok! How is this any different from any other pizza that is homemade?? Moderator comment: Each slice of this pizza has 1/2 ounce of cheese, so even 2 slices would be acceptable for most kidney diets.

Great recipe to play with! I used ground turkey, added mushrooms and used a vegan mozzarella cheese substitute for mine. Quick easy, edible and fun!

Why can't you use Pomi tomato sauce there is nothing added to it, and I like the flavor better. Moderator note: Yes you can make the substitution as long as the Pomi sauce has no added salt. 3/4 cup tomato sauce is equivalent to 3 oz tomato paste.

My husband (the non-dialysis one of us) enjoyed this so much that he had 4 pieces by himself! I added a little more herbs to the meat (Mrs. Dash Spicy mix) during the cooking. I try to add a little more flavor since my husband is also eating with me. But this recipe was definitely a winner and is now part of our weekly menu.
