    This looks like a great idea, have recently become a pumpkin convert, as I have always been put off of the prepping (peeling, chopping), so I shall most definitely give this a try – thank you.

    We were very hopeful before making this pumpkin pizza base, but were deeply disappointed as the texture and taste is nothing like pizza. Total waste of time and money … would rather not venture into the murky waters of carb-free pizza :’)

      Hi Ludicer, low carb banting pizzas won’t ever be the same as normal pizza – there isn’t any gluten to make it stretchy, and the pumpkin will give it a pumpkin flavour. These are really just options as containers for your pizza toppings 🙂
