Today, pizzas are easily available at every restaurant and of course with any number of variations. Here's one variation specially created for diabetics to indulge in. . . Once in a while. The pizza base in this recipe is made using whole wheat flour (and not refined flour (maida) which has a high glycemic index and raises the blood sugar levels rapidly). I have used a creamy mixture of mustard flavoured low fat cream cheese instead of cheese. This miracle spread not only melts well but also tastes good, of course, not like real cheese, but a good guilt free substitute. You can use any other vegetable toppings that you like instead of the one used in this recipe.

I got the readymade pizza base from the market and made the tomato sauce at home... The highlight of the recipe is the cheesy topping which is minus the cheese... the low-fat cottage cheese topping along with veggies allows a diabetic to indulge in a pizza in a more healthier way... tx for the recipe.
