I got the idea for this of a low carb site while on atkins. I decided to use swiss and cheddar at that time and less egg and I found I like it this way much better. With the sauce it will have some carbs and sugar in it, so you might be lucky and find a LC sauce or you will have to buy a can of whole stewed tomatoes and season with some spices and make your own sauce. I used salsa a lot it was a fun twist on sauce and it has "topping" already in it. You can use any or all of the following "toppings": spinach jalapenos pepperoni black olives mushrooms chopped onion browned, seasoned and totally drained ground beef or turkey ricotta cheese
