Thanks for the update. Ok, I'll make good on my promise
Brian's Evil Crustless Pizza
1 lb ground sausage
1 lb italian sausage (hot if desired)
1/2 lb sliced pepperoni
1 1/2 spaghetti sauce
1 lb mozarella cheese
Mash the ground sausage into the bottom of a 12" fry pan in an even layer and brown throughly on both sides. I use a small cup to roll out the sausage into a smooth even layer. That is the crust. Brown the sausage crust on both sides and remove and place in bottom of pie container. Slice italian sausage into thin rounds and brown thoroughly in fry pan, drain and blot out remaining fat on paper towels. In a bowl mix browned sausage, pepperon, sauce, seasoning and half the cheese and pour into pie. Cook in 350 deg oven for fifteen minutes covered in foil. Then uncover sprinkle on remainder on cheese, and cook for another fifteen minutes. If you like more crusty cheese, you can turn up the oven to 400 deg for the last part of the cooking.

This is filling. I've never been able to eat more than half of it at a sitting.
I'm glad you brought the story full circle and let us know how it turned out!
Your example is a great one:
-of how people with diabetes can ask for what they need without missing out on life or drawing undue attention to themselves,
-of how people without diabetes can willingly make small adjustments to be inclusive,
-of how one-two slices of really thin crust pizza with lots of nonstarchy veggie toppings plus salad can actually serve as a nutritious and blood glucose-friendly meal,
-of how spreading a little knowledge may serve someone else down the road--maybe the next time they have mom-in-law over, they'll make something that will help her eat well with pre-diabetes.
Hi Lizmari- This problem occurs frequently for me and my husband. Besides being diabetic he and I do not eat any meat. So before accepting a dinner invite, I ask what is being served. Usually the person asks what we can eat. I always offer to bring a salad so I know we will at least have something to eat. As far as the pizza problem you had, I would pick on a slice of pizza
and just eat a little bit. Also explaining about your diabetes and bg rises.
