It's easy to make a very fast low carb pizza when carb cravings strike. All these ingredients I got from Trader Joe's but you can get similar things at grocery stores. One Pizza will have more or less 7 Net Carbs depending on how much toppings you put on there.

Ingredients:

Sonoma Carb Cutting Tortillas

Bruschetta Sauce

Shredded Mozzarella Cheese

Egg

Mini Heirloom Tomatoes
