lower-sodium veggie pizza

I love pizza but have to keep an eye on my sodium intake, so I forego the pizza sauce & use olive oil or no salt added tomato sauce instead. I also add canned diced tomatoes (no salt added), so I still get the tomato flavor without all the sodium.

How To Make lower-sodium veggie pizza

  • 1
    PIZZA DOUGH: Add liquid to Bread Machine pan first, then dry ingredients, then yeast. Set bread machine for DOUGH cycle. Once risen, remove,divide and roll out into desired sizes, and cook on gas grill, then bring in and add toppings and pop under low broiler till cheese is hot and bubbly. If grilling dough, spray grill racks with non stick spray (away from flame)or both sides of pizza dough to insure dough does not stick. For foccacia dough you can use this with or without the spice toppings. VEGGIES may be grilled as well to provide the pizza with a more flavorful grilled flavor.
