Pizza isn't bad for you in moderaton...that's the key. If you don't go overboard and can keep your sugar levels in range (which it looks like you did) then you should be fine. Saying that, however, it isn't the most diet friendly food in the world and is pretty high in calories and fat...though I don't know the exact amounts. It's good to have it every once in a while, but I wouldn't make it part of your daily eating plan.

this is great news :D I've kept well away from pizza because I thought it would send my numbers high - but didn't have any personal experience to base it on, just what I'd heard from other people.

 

I'm happy to know that I can eat some - albeit only a small amount, but I lurrrrrrrrve pizza, and honestly don't see why being diabetic should mean that I can't eat anything I want. As long as it's in moderation (geez, I'm beginning to hate that expression LOL)

Pizza happens to be one of those foods that some people will peak in a hour or up to several hours. For myself two large or three small slices are all I can handle without sending my bg's high, but I like mine with a lot ingredients added. Then no two pizza's seem to be the same either so it's a gamble. The GI/GL varies as well as the calories so again it's a gamble.

... That's why, most of the time, I'll make home made pizza. I make a vegetarian spicy sauce, I use tortillas for the crust, and load my little pizzas with veggies (red onions, broccoli, mushrooms, peppers, bean sprouts, sky's the limit!) a sprinkle of cheese, a pinch of freshly grated parmesan, and a pinch of basilic. 4 minutes in a pipping hot oven. Voilà!

 

I find this won't raise my BG as much. Makes you eat loads of veggies too. I freeze the sauce so when we feel like pizza, it's easy and quick. Kids & hubby will add pepperoni of course.

after about 3 years of this i have come to the opinion that i can EAT ANYTHING i ever did.the key seems to be the portion sizes of the different foods.eat in moderation and TEST.

That's true! One of my worst hypos was after eating pizza. I guessed the carbs right and took enough insulin but the "lag" time between eating and the carbs breaking down was too long. I had a hypo of 45 then. Now I have to dual wave bolus when eating pizza. I take 25-40% up front and take the rest over 1-2 hours depending on how much pizza I'm eating.

LOL!!! I am a total pizza freak! I eat pizza at least once every week or every other week. I only eat 1-2 slices though. ;)

I too, feel the same way. That being said,

 

however

 

 

The "I" part is the most important thing to keep in mind IMHO.

 

Each of us is SO different in how we react to things that what might work for one of us might not work for somebody else. Or might have to be modified for the other person.
