I input the ingredients in www.recipenutrition.com and got the following values for one entire recipe of the crust: 1352 calories, 64 grams carb, 104 grams protein, 72 grams fat. I opted to not use the low-fat cheeses and this may account for some of the nutritional value differences. Remember, these numbers are for the crust only, before you add any additional pizza toppings. I chose to add fresh basil, pepperoni, pizza sauce, fresh tomatoes and cheese and calculated the carbs for each of these additions and then ate 1/4 of the recipe or 2 slices for dinner. It's wonderful to be eating pizza again…and worth the labor and calculating carb time!!

Is entire recipe truly only one serving as noted under "Nutritional facts"? Seems like you get more than one serving per recipe. Nutritional facts data seems like it is per serving though. Can you clarify for me so I make sure that I get the right portion to apply nutritional fact data?.

I also have the book your printing recipes from and it is great. This is a summer staple at our house. I really perfer this to regular pizza. I also like the mushroom pizza I make too. I am trying to eliminate more carbs from my diet…Thanks Lynda for sharing,Debe

This is truly a way to fix a pizza crust that I have never heard of. The fact that the carbs are so low makes me feel not guilty at all about eating two nice size pieces. What an awesome way to sneak those veggies in for a child!
