Pizza doesn’t exactly seem like a diabetes-friendly food at first glance. Traditionally, pizza includes a ton of carbs thanks to its crust and “bad” ingredients like cheese, fatty meats, and little substance.
But what many people don’t realize is that you can make pizza healthy. You can also make it diabetes-friendly – you just have to choose the right ingredients and toppings. And that’s why the Health.com recipe for Three Pepper Pizza is a great way to fulfill a pizza craving without throwing your blood sugar off track.
This Three Pepper Pizza is a great source of nutrients thanks to the veggies-only toppings. It uses three different bell peppers, which offer vitamin C, and you can adjust it as needed for your diet. You can use a whole wheat crust and low-fat or fat-free cheese to get calcium without overdoing the fat.
