Would it be possible for you to redo this recipe using Davita's Roasted Red Pepper Sauce recipe so we see the correct nutrition values. Thank you. Dietitian comment: Yes, if you replace the pizza sauce with 1 cup of the DaVita Roasted Red Pepper Tomato Sauce one serving provides the following: 130 calories, 11 g protein, 3 g carbohydrate, 8 g fat, 62 mg cholesterol, 112 mg sodium, 314 mg potassium, 134 mg phosphorus, 58 mg calcium.

How do the nutrient values change if you use the pizza sauce from the Davita Homemade Pizza recipe? Low rating because I haven't made it yet. Dietitian comment: Do you mean the Red Pepper Tomato Sauce? The potassium is 37 mg lower, phosphorus is 7 mg lower and sodium is 70 mg lower.

I want to make this recipe, but I was wanting to know if you can substitute the pizza sauce with another sauce. Dietitian comment: Try the Roasted Red Pepper Tomato Sauce from the recipe. It's lower in potassium and sodium and tastes great.

Would it be save to substitute Daiya non-dairy cheese for the dairy cheese in this and other recipes? Dietitian comment: Yes Daiya cheese alternative products are low in potassium and phosphorus and do not contain phosphate additives.Be aware the sodium content is higher than sodium in natural cheeses used in the recipe.
