  1. What a great quickie pizza recipe! My boyfriend could live off of pizza, but I try to limit it in our meal plans to 2x/month. This quick fix is perfect for him.. thank you!

    • The Speedy Crust Pizza in the Trim Healthy Mama book is amazing and easy too! it is my favorite pizza to make. I really like this one with ricotta cheese too instead of the cream cheese. You could always cut them into bites for a great little snack.

  2. Watch the ingredients … Joseph’s products have soy in them … one item had this: Water, Wheat, Gluten, Corn Starch, Flax, Oat Fiber, Whole Wheat, Flour,
    Oat Bran, Isolated Soy Protein, Soy Flour, Soy Oil, Sesame Flour, Salt,
    Sodium Acid Pyrophosphate, Dextrose, Sodium Bicarbonate, Calcium
    Propionate (A Preservative), Fumaric Acid, Potassium Sorbate,
    Monodiglycerides, Sucralose, Sodium Metabisulfite, Wheat & Soy …… EWWWW!!!! DO you know how bad Sucralose is for you??? Soy is not a food unless it is fermented! Wheat and Corn that are not organic are GMO!

    • I am so glad you wrote this! Yes, we may eat this once every 2 months. It really is a “in a pinch” kind of pizza for me. I know that the authors of Trim Healthy Mama have said that the Joseph’s low carb pitas and lavash breads are on plan. I still use them pretty sparingly. I did buy some to keep in my freezer for emergencies. But yes… the ingredients are not perfect at all.

    • That’s what I love about the HighSteaks one listed (mine) – no need to look for tons of weird “ingredients” and stuff, it’s just egg, cheese, cream, and ACV – that’s it – and it only takes a few mins to make with zero kneading and crap like that.

  3. I should have mentioned … we use this same principle with organic, soy free and corn free tortillas….. sprouted would be even better : )
