    I didn't melt anything. I just mixed it all together and used wet hands to pat it into shape on parchment paper. It turned out fantastic. No microwave involved at all.

    Pizza Express thin crust Americano Hot from supermarket. Add extra fresh tomatoes, bacon, cheese and a sprinkle of Parmesan and coarse black pepper topped by some rocket leaves and/or watercress (after cooking). Acceptable rise in BS. I guess it's the thickness of the base that's the problem. There is a pizza place where the bases are paper thin - like chinese pankcakes - with all sorts of strange organic salad/veg goodies on them, and just a smear of tomato paste. Gorgeous. Technically they may not be pizzas....

    I reply to this old thread because you are correct.
    Yesterday evening we made at home a pizza "al tegamino" (because havin only a gas oven, you can only make this way) so it had a bog spongy crust, and was made with self raising flour.
    BG after two hours was low 4.6 and made me suspicious. At midnight i felt a bit dizzy and decided to re test. 9.6
    This morning the fasting BG was still high. 6.2.

    Other ingredients were good and fresh and wew only olive oil, basil, tomato sauce and salt, I think the problem was in flour and preparation.

    I suspect the kind of topping and the base make a dofference on the effect of pizza so I think it is better to don't eat a lot of it even if home made.

    I had an interesting experience with pizza. I was 5.9 just before, then actually dropped to 5.2 about 45 mins later, which was a surprise. But 2 hours later I was up to 7.3, and probably went higher later - unfortunately I'd just run out of test strips after the 2 hour reading so don't know for sure.
