Have your cake and eat it too.. Have Pizza while you are at it. Have some abs too. Gluten-free with a dairy-free option if you want to cut the cheese.
“My quest with nutrition is about using the best quality ingredients that support satisfaction, long term health, and body composition. Carbohydrates are not the enemy, misuse and overconsumption is the big issue. Starchy foods that are higher in carbohydrates and sugars are readily available energy supplies.. What isn’t utilized as needed energy will be stored away and is eventually turned into fat. Most people over consume energy.”
Back to Pizza… Here is a recipe that takes less than 20 mins from start to finish and works great as a personal pizza or one that can be split for two.

Broil for 3-5 minutes until toppings and cheese reach preferred temperature
Preheat your griddle over a medium flame. (If necessary, first spray with non-stick cooking spray or rub with a few drops of coconut or olive oil.)
Blend or mix the crust ingredients until smooth. Be generous with italian herbs for added flavor… Use one tablespoon+ if you have Italian seasoning blend
Wait until the griddle is hot enough (when drops of water sizzle up).
Spread half your batter into a thin circle (mine were approximately 8.5 inches (21.5cm).
After a couple of minutes, flip over.
Line your pizza pan/broiler tray with foil/parchment paper, and place wraps on top.
Top with tomato sauce, cheese, toppings.
Broil for a few minutes, until cheese is melted to your liking.
