    Post by Two Collies on Tue Sep 08 2015, 09:10

    https://www.diabetes.org.uk/Guide-to-diabetes/Recipes/Potato_pizza/


    Potato pizza
    An alternative vegetarian pizza topping to cheese or tomato.
    Nut free Vegetarian Low sugar

    Serves 4
    Prep 25 minutes + 25 minutes to rise
    Cook 30 minutes

    Each 171g serving contains (excludes serving suggestion)

    kcal 363
    CARBS 59.8g
    protein 9.7g
    FAT 9.1g
    saturates 2.5g
    sugars 4.0g
    salt 0.3g
    portions fruit & veg 0


    Ingredients

    For the base
    100g plain wholemeal flour
    150g plain flour
    pinch salt
    1 x 7g sachet easy-blend yeast
    1 tbsp milk
    1 tbsp olive oil

    For the topping
    250g waxy potatoes, thinly sliced
    1 tbsp olive oil
    1 onion, sliced
    leaves from 1 sprig rosemary
    1 tbsp fresh thyme
    4 tbsp light crème fraiche
    salt and freshly ground black pepper

    Method

    Preheat the oven to 220°C/gas 7.
    Place the flours, salt and yeast in a large bowl. Mix together the milk, oil and 125ml warm water, pour over the flour and bring together to form a soft dough.
    Tip onto a lightly floured surface and knead for 5-6 minutes until smooth. Place in a lightly oiled bowl, cover with a damp cloth and set aside in a warm place for 30 minutes.
    Meanwhile, simmer the potatoes in lightly salted water for 5 minutes. Drain.
    Heat the oil in a non-stick frying pan and fry the onion for 3-4 minutes until softened.
    Cut the dough in two and shape each piece into a 23cm circle, approximately ½-1cm thick, and place on a heavy baking sheet.
    Prepare the topping, adding the rosemary, thyme, creme fraiche and pepper to the potatoes and divide between the bases. Set aside for 5 minutes, then bake for 15-20 minutes until crisp and golden.

    Or ...How to make a pizza even worse for diabetics.

    Why would anyone (diabetic or not) want to put potato on top of a pizza when there are so many wonderful pizza toppings out there already?

    DUK really are trying to encourage people to be diabetic aren't they?

    This has to be one of the worst surely? Most pizza toppings are fine for diabetics, so that's the bit DUK decide to change? Twisted Evil Even a few chunks of pineapple wouldn't be as bad as a whole pizza full of potato. Unbelievable!

    Seriously, in my opinion DUK are a criminal outfit, they reduce the length and quality of life of diabetics for money. Money from their big pharma sponsors. They are no better than drug dealers keeping people hooked on drugs. What sickens me is the fact that people donate money to them and countless volunteers work for free, to keep DUK employees in a well paid job (checkout their annual reports). Year after year the audited NHS stats prove more and more people are becoming diabetics and zero progress whatsoever is being made in the all important BG levels.

    They are so smug with their we are the experts attitude, look at this way 1. They are completely clueless and do not know how much damage they do. 2. They do know and don't care. Either way they are not fit for purpose, are a complete disgrace and should be prosecuted. One thing cannot be denied, they have sent thousands possibly millions to an early grave.

Every blood test has proved, I took the right road to my diabetic salvation. For almost seven years, I have asked medical professionals and naysayers, how do I maintain non diabetic BG levels on two Metformin other than low carb ? The silence has been deafening !

    Ah but you can't complain because it's LOW FAT!!!

    I can't remember, and don't really want to look, at how DUK explain things but the ADA used to have a page entitled Eat More Starch! At least they explained if you did you "may have to adjust your medication", ie. increase it a lot, but hey it was to protect your heart from all that arterycloggingsaturatedfat. yeah right, CVD is correlated to A1c starting from "normal" numbers of below 5 and increasing linearly, and several of their recommended drugs have since been banned for raising cardiovascular risk, but who cares about health when sponsorship is at stake?
