  • Pizza recipes anyone?

    Just wondering if anyone has a favorite recipe for home made pizza?
    I miss pizza so much. Some time ago Olive Garden resturant listed a
    Cesar Salad Pizza on their menue. I was really good and I ordered it a few times. At that time I didn't have IC so didn't pay much attention to ingredients.
    I am looking for something to substitute the tomato sauce that 'we' can't have anymore.
    I love to make the crust it is just the sauce that has me stumped.
    Thanks for any help.

    have you tried making the roasted red pepper sauce? it is so good and i actually prefer it to tomato sauce - it is sweeter. it's pretty easy to make- you can find the recipe on here. i made a mini pizza in the microwave oven the other day - topped some bread with roasted red pepper sauce, mozzerrella, and basil- and it was delicious!

      find a recipe for how to make pizza with white sauce or if you dont feel like cooking for pizza delivery ive found only dominos has white sauce pizzas (its not really embarrassing for me to order cuz i can go online and customize my order,what i want on it,type of sauce,crust,etc) also california pizza kitchen has them as well. u can get them in some freezers at grocery stores or just go to their restaurant if theres one in your area. for places like papa johns or pizza hut im thinking of just asking them to not put any sauce on my pizza at all since they dont have the white. hope u find this helpful.i love pizza also.

        I order pizza fairly frequently --- I order it without tomato sauce --- my family actually likes it that way.

          Pizza

          Thank you everyone for your input.
          I keep roasted peppers handy to put on sandwiches and salads. You are right it is a little sweet when you are looking for that familar tomato taste.
          I have heard of white pizza but have never seen it on a menu. Does anyone know what the ingredients are?

            I have a few pizza recipes.

            One is to use pesto in place of tomato sauce, then mozzarella cheese and roasted red peppers on top. If you roast a head of garlic in the oven (wrap the whole head in foil and bake for one hour at 350 degrees), you can use that on top as well.

            Or, you can roast the garlic, mash it, mix in some olive oil, salt and herbs, and then spread that on the crust before you top it. Roasted chicken and peppers works well with that one.

            Finally, no sauce, and then use mozzarella, goat cheese (or feta cheese, whatever you can tolerate), chopped unsulphured dates, and pears on top. I make this for myself sometimes and other people want a slice.

            Sometimes I get a smell of traditional pizza sauce and I miss it, but I think you can taste a wider variety of toppings better without it.

                I'll add my two cents on this one...
                We make a basic alfredo sauce... 1/2 stick butter, 1 cup heavy cream, & 4-6 oz shaved parm cheese. cook it low and slow, add ingredients one at a time, stir constantly. adapt it to taste, there's no real rules here!

                you can use it just like that or add minced garlic or pesto or pureed red pepper. mostly we use garlic salt, parsley, and a quick shave of nutmeg.

                if you can resist pouring over pasta, and it actually makes it to the pizza, you can top your pizza with grilled chicken, mushrooms, spinach... whatever you like!

                this is a weekly staple in our Italian household. (and it's so low in calories... not!)

                happy cooking!

                  I have found that I love a pizza with garlic oil as the sauce or no sauce at all. I get a Mediterranean pizza and can fortunately tolerate Kalamata olives and get it with feta cheese (along with spinach, maybe chicken, etc.). It is to die for! Here we have a chain called Papa Murphy's and I can get their Mediterranean pizza just by leaving off the sun dried tomatoes and I substitute black olives and it's great. But, I've had other restaurants make it also. I've never tried it at a Dominoes or any place like that.
                  treatment:
                  -I follow the IC diet to the letter
                  -acupuncture and chinese herbs
                  -Prelief
                  -UTA
                  -instillations as needed
                  -beginning yoga and specialized yoga for breathing and relaxation
                  -Wellbutrin
                  -Klonopin

                    I am so hungry right now reading all of this! Im gonna have to make a pizza one of these days!! haha Thanks for the ideas!!! mmmmmmmm

                    PS. I did actually have a pizza a little while ago and it had alfredo sauce on it! So no tomato sauce. It came like that and was called chicken mushroom pizza... so it is possible to get it normally like that anyway!

                    28 yrs old,

                    I have little to no problems now with my bladder, unless I am very stressed out, I forget to take Elmiron for a few days, or I eat or drink something that I know is a trigger...(i.e) like eating a tomato or drinking tea.... Took a long time to get here, but it IS possible to feel good again I just want people who are new to know that IT CAN get better, and for every one person who is suffering, there are hundreds of others who feel GREAT because they have control of thier IC.

                    What Works: Tylenol 3's, Pyridium, Elmiron (Going on 4 years now!) HOT showers!!!

                    Medications/ Vitamins: Elmiron-100mg 4x's daily Tylenol 3's/Advil (flaring) Vitamin D, WILD salmon oil 4x gels in the morning, Women's ONE a DAY multivitamin (the gummy kind doesn't make me flare) and PROBIOTICS!

                      Thanks everyone for contributing to this thread. You are a inspiration to me and I need it just now. Yesterday was a family reunion and most all foods were on the 'bad' list. So, I am in a flare today and have tried everything I know of to shake it.

                          Adrien,
                          The tomato paste, cured meats (pepperoni), and onions posted in the above recipe are often trigger foods for many people that follow the IC diet.

                          I recently ordered a roasted garlic, spinach, basil, and olive oil pizza from Garlic Jim's and I loved it.
                          Current Meds: Nortriptyline (35 mg), Hydroxyzine (50 mg), Cephalexin (250 mg before sexual activity)
                          As Needed: Prelief, AZO, Evian Water, Aleve

                            I have been able to order the Garlic Chicken Pizza (without onions) from California Pizza Kitchen and it works okay for me. I believe there is some white wine in the sauce; I take a few Prelief before I eat it and I haven't had any issues. For those who are very diet sensitive, it might not be the best choice.

                              salmon or lamb mascarpone pizza

                              you don't add toppings until the crust is done and this is not for those who wanna a low calorie treat. but omg it is so good. a gourmet delight.

                              ingredients for 12" pizza
                              1/2 pound salmon or ground lamb
                              1/2 cup peas
                              6oz or more of mascarpone
                              salt
                              optional roasted garlic or caramelized onions
                              (can also add stir fried zucchini or roasted red peppers or pine nuts)

                              if you are making your dough from scratch you can make the caramelized onions while your dough sits

                              make caramelized onions (if you can tolerate them)

                              or roast garlic as oven is heating up. it works. i promise.

                              cook salmon or ground lamb on stove top as you normally would. i use coconut oil, salt and garlic powder for this dish.

                              boil peas

                              cover pizza with ingredients.
                              mascarpone
                              (if you can tolerate it) caramelized onions and or roasted garlic
                              salmon or lamb
                              peas
                              and then the rest of the optional ingredients

                              if you are interested in how to make your own mascarpone (i promise you it is amazing, better than anything you can buy in store, even if it's made in italy because the mass producers of mascarpone all use the citric acid which is not the correct acid for mascarpone), and the way i have found for myself to make the gentlest on bladder caramelized onions. (i can't promise you will tolerate it, but i hope you do too), i will add recipes below.
