Confessions of a professed non-pizza eater:
1) I don't pile on the cheese. I like the crust to be thin and crisp.
2) I rarely eat pizza joint pizza because I don't like to bolus six units
for one lousy piece. On the rare occasion that I do, I don't have a
delayed high bg (as long as I bolused appropriately from the start.)
3) Pizza from a commercial source is a lot bigger, with a thicker crust and
a lot more cheese. Exactly how much bigger, how much thicker, and how much
more cheese are all unknowns. This can make bolusing a crap shoot. Yes, I
know the chains post nutritional values but I don't eat at the chains
because they make lousy pizza.
4) Dunno. Find some in my area and I'll invite them over. Then we can do a
proper study. I live in San Francisco. Any volunteers? I have a bag of
ripe tomatoes, mozzarella cheese, and pizza dough in the fridge. (YPPBGMV)
I think the problem many people have with pizza and pasta is mainly due to
two things: a] they don't count or bolus for all the carbs b] the high fat
content causes the carbs to be digested over a long period of time with
resulting slow rise in bg.
How'd I do?
