All the Flavours of the Famous Pasta Dish - Served as a Low Carb Pizza

Carbonara is one of the quintessential Italian pasta dishes - famous the world over. As with any dish that has travelled, it has grown and evolved over the years, with additional ingredients like cream, garlic and vegetables being added to the original recipe of eggs, guanciale (cured pig cheek - though pancetta is an acceptable replacement) and cheese. It originated in Rome and many die-hard Romans would most likely turn up their noses at anyone altering the original, but rules are made to be broken. 

Now, we're breaking the rules completely here and transporting these flavours away from pasta and onto a Lo-Dough pizza base. We hope we'll be granted a little artistic license by any traditionalists - we've used a little garlic and creme fraiche as the base sauce before adding, pancetta, mushrooms and mozzarella (it is the pizza version, after all), all finished off with an egg.

Use Lo-Dough as a Low Carb Pizza Base

It may not strictly be Carbonara in its classic form, but it's got all the classic flavours and a huge reduction in calories, carbs and will satisfy any Carbonara cravings. 

Note: If you are looking to make this more suitable for a ketogenic diet, go with streaky bacon and full-fat creme fraiche.
