Craving pizza



Recommended Posts

I think that kind of cheese would come right back up at that stage (I'm assuming you are on purees) If you are allowed to have ricotta cheese I have seen a recipe for a ricotta bake where you mix ricotta with Tomato sauce, maybe that would kill the craving?

Yes, ask your surgeon's team to see how that would fit in at this point. Picking the toppings off of pizza and leaving the crust behind is a classic WLS solution, progression dependent. Soft cheeses like mozzarella were fine the first week in our program (individual tolerance depending...) but not sure how that fits with your program, or how the baked on cheese fits, compared to the raw cheese.

@RickM your answer just rocked my world. I might not be so sad when I see pizza commercials. it’s definitely too soon for me, but what a great idea in a few months.

Cauli-Power pizza is pretty damn good and since the "crust" is vegetables, it's ok to eat! They are expensive considering, but... when you want pizza and can't eat pizza... you can eat cauliflower crust pizza.

I was able to eat pizza. I was able to eat just half of it but it tasted wonderful. It was olive, mushroom and cheese. There is nothing wrong with a slice of pizza now and then.

At 2.5 weeks post op ( now 3) pizza is not on the OPs plan. Telling her its ok is bad advice

Check the ingredients of the cauliflower crust, in my experience many have alternative flours and are actually less healthy for you and are also higher in carbs than regular pizza dough.

Additionally as many have stated pizza this early post op,probably not the best decision, think of your new stomach and the acid that comes with pizza sauce. You could be causing severe damage to your new healing belly

I'm 2 1/2 weeks post-op and I'm craving pizza. Wondering will it be ok to eat the cheese and sauce off a slice of pizza.

What’s the nutritional value of this? Any idea where to find it? Looks DELICIOUS for 2-3 months out.
