Consuming homemade pizza with a refined or whole wheat base can lead to a rapid spike in blood sugar levels. Both maida (refined flour) and whole-wheat flour are high-GI (Glycemic Index) food items. Pure grains, like whole wheat and refined flour, are known to spike blood sugar levels and cause hyperglycemia. It’s important to consume homemade pizza with different ingredients and in moderation or pair it with fibre and protein-rich toppings to prevent spikes in blood sugar levels.

Ways to Optimize consumption of homemade pizza

• Try a cauliflower base for your homemade pizza.
• You can replace refined flour and whole wheat flour with keto pizza bases made with almond flour or similar keto flour.
• Top your keto pizza base with protein like chicken chunks or paneer pieces to stabilize the spikes

Whole wheat homemade pizza can lead to an increase in blood sugar levels due to the presence of carbohydrates, including complex carbohydrates and simple sugars in the pizza. The extent and duration of this increase will depend on several factors, including the amount and type of carbohydrates in the pizza and an individual’s metabolic response.
