“Feels like you're cheating and actually eating pizza! A must try and soooo simple too. Please if possible use pizza sauce made by L. E. Roselli's. It's their Low Carb Pizza Sauce and only has 2 carbs for 1/4 cup!! It's the best sauce I've found. I buy it by the case and one jar is enough to do 4 BIG Portabella Pizzas. They are located in N.J. but I get it at my local Low Carb store here in Florida. Get the sauce!! It makes the pizza. Serve with a nice big green salad.”
