What is better than tacos.. pizza? How about both!

taco-pizzaTaco Pizza: Crustacular, low-carb and gluten-free

Looking for something new for dinner? Miss Godfather’s Taco Pizza? Are you diabetic, gluten intolerant or low-carbing and need something you can enjoy on pizza night? At only 23 carbs for an entire pizza, this could be your answer.

 

First, why a zucchini crust? I wanted something less pungent for a crust, and one which would take the flavors of the toppings without conflicting. Zucchini is mild, healthy, and easy to prepare. This prolific vegetable can be used in the crust in place of cauliflower for any of the pizza recipes.

Don’t panic when you see the calorie and carbohydrate counts. You are getting almost twice the pizza size of the regular cauliflower crust recipe.

  1. Sorry I need clarification. You said “in the baked crust ……” So, make the crust up and BEFORE cooking add the extra ingredients? so,you don’t make the crust first, cook it, then add the ingredients and grill for a few extra minutes? I don’t cook, at all, but this looked easy and interesting, just need to clarify that you make the crust AND add all the goodies at the same time. Oh, and is the ground beef already cooked? You don’t give cooking times so I am assuming that this whole thing is made as one – crust and toppings all together, so beef must be cooked? Thanks, appreciate your patience :)

    • I don’t know how she intended it, but I like to make the crust and bake that while I’m browning the ground beef. Then when the crust is done, I add the cooked beef and the cheese and put it back in the oven to melt the cheese. Then I add all the other toppings and don’t bake it again. That’s just me, but I think it’s super yummy like that! Hope that helps! :)

  2. I don’t understand the nutritional information. Per 1/8 pizza (including crust), says 166 carbs, 4 fiber equals >1 net carb per slice?????

    Thank you! Thank you! I have had the zucchini crust pizza twice now. Favorite topping is Philly cheese steak. Zucchini curst topped with peppers, onions, mushrooms, raw deli sliced beef, topped with provolone cheese. My whole family loves it. Carolyn
