Bongiorno Ulcerative Colitis People,
I was talking with some good buddies last night named Mario and Luigi and they said SCD Pizza is rather easy to make. So, like any good UC’er following the SCD diet program, I dove right in. It’s been close to 16 months since I’ve had a slice of pizza, and I’d be lying if I told anyone I didn’t miss it. I love pizza, but I hate diarrhea and blood.
One of my first jobs growing up was working at a Pizza Restaurant in Palo Alto, CA called Pizz’A Chicago. They have a bigtime DEEP DISH type of pizza. And its super tasty. Even though I started as “bus boy” I was always entitled to a free meal after a full shift. And of course, I always ordered up a small pizza. “Always” meaning every single shift. Strange thing was, when I got home, I always headed straight to the bathroom… for a long time. Yup, something wasn’t going to well after those pizza’s, but I always thought it was the sauce. Might have been, but other people didn’t have that problem…
My point is this, I have ulcerative colitis. I’m currently off all medications. And instead of drugs or surgery, I’m using the SCD diet to treat my disease, and it’s working pretty good for about 16 months now. I think alot of other UC’ers could do the same or even better. Since there’s alot of foods I stay the heck away from, I get bored sometimes when its time for making dinner, so I often make up new things for the first time. This story is about a night ago when I busted out some pizza that stays within the guidelines of the SCD diet.

If nothing else, I hope this video gives you a feel for what Specific Carbohydrate Diet Pizza can be like. It wasn’t Pizz’A Chicago, but it was pretty darn tasty, my wife even agreed too, and she’s doesn’t have UC.
