Low-calorie & Low-carb pizza-pie heaven

The Lo-Dough version of the stateside-pizza sensation has landed and Oh. My. God. is it delicious! In America, it's the source of much controversy - many New Yorkers refusing to even acknowledge that it even counts as a pizza. As far as we are concerned, this is just another stitch in pizza's rich tapestry. If you like sauce then you are in luck - this creation holds plenty of it, along with sausage meat, mushrooms and a hidden layer of melted cheese underneath. 

According to the dishes wiki-page 'Tim Samuelson, Chicago's official cultural historian, says there is not enough documentation to determine with certainty who invented Chicago-style deep-dish pizza. It is often reported that Chicago-style deep-dish pizza was invented at Pizzeria Uno in Chicago, in 1943.'

The primary difference between deep-dish pizza and most other forms of pizza is that, as the name suggests, the crust is very deep, creating a very thick pizza that resembles a pie more than a flatbread. Although the entire pizza is very thick, in traditional Chicago-style deep-dish pizzas, the crust itself is thin to medium in thickness.

Lo-Dough Deep-Dish Pizza

Being a deep-dish, this well-filled pizza pie is well... filling. We give you the recipe below for the sauce, which needs a bit of love in itself (we recommend slowly simmering it for a good 20 minutes to get it thick, rich and delicious).

For our money, one pizza will easily serve two people - but if you beg to differ, the whole thing will only set you back a little over 600 calories.

Be sure to shop carefully for gluten-free sausages if looking to keep this one completely gluten-free.
