An Incredibly Low-Carb Sloppy Joe PIzza Made With Lo-Dough
That's not to mention low-calorie and high-fibre too. Another great example of Lo-Dough giving you the key to healthier versions of your favourite pizzas.
A Sloppy Joe was originally a sandwich recipe that was first recorded around the start of the 20th century. As a mince and tomato sauce mix, it's in effect a paired down bolognese sauce, served on a bun. Being meat and sauce, pizza soon came calling and the pairing was perfect - and being pizza, Lo-Dough has now come calling too.
Low-Carb Diet Tips
To keep our recipe super low carb, we kept the onion out of the sauce recipe and just used a simple mince, garlic, pepper and passata combination. The result was delicious - oozy, savoury and most of all... sloppy. You could always add mushrooms or more peppers to up the vegetable content.
We also recommend cooking a lot of the mince mix - a whole pack of mince, a whole pepper, 2 or 3 cloves of garlic - it can be kept in the fridge for a few days or frozen and would be great as the base for chilli con carne, stuffed peppers, sandwiches, further pizzas, etc.

Are you new to Lo-Dough?
Lo-dough is a near carb-free bread and pastry replacement that makes a perfect alternative base for a pizza, slashing the calories and carbs usually found in a pizza base. Your average pizza base will be approx 300 calories and 50 or 60 carbs - sometimes even more. Even other alternatives don't cut it next to Lo-Dough - a regular flour tortilla is approx. 160 calories and 27g carbs.
Lo-Dough clocks in at just 39 calories and 2.2g of carbohydrate - a massive saving.
Method1. Preheat your oven to 250°C/475F/Gas 9
2. Fry off your mince, pepper and garlic until the mince is browned. Add your passata and cook for approx 20 minutes.
3. Spread 3 tablespoons or so of the mix over the the Lo-Dough. Make sure to spread right to the edge (make sure to spoon sauce as well as meat).
4. Spread the grated cheese on top of the mince mix. Put the pizza in the oven and cook for 7-10 minutes or until golden and bubbling.
5. Serve with a crack of black pepper on top.
