First of all Pizza has a lot of starch in it but it is also very high fat. The fat in the pizza causes a delay in the rise of the blood sugar by several hours at the most.
If you are on insulin you will want to either split the dose giving some up front and the other part of the dose several hours later. If you are pumping you will want to spread out the insulin dose over several hours either via square wave or some other dosing means dependingon what insulin pump you use. I am thinking if you are on on pills the situation would be different. But anyway, it will take some experimenting to see what works for you. If your are low carbing a lot just eat the stuff on the top and leave the crust but remember the fat delays the blood sugar rise and pizzas have a lot of carbs in the crust.

Another thing the weight of the food in grams has a lot to do with
how much it will raise your bg especially in the carb area. For example the more grapes (the greater the weight in grams) the higher my blood sugar will go since the higher the weight the greater the number of carb grams I am eating. I tend to eat to my meater because weighing my food and counting caarbs I can tell if that food is not good for me to eat and I will try to eat less of that food the next time and see if that helps and if not then I will stop eating that food and try to find another way to prepare that food so it has less to no carbs in it. Of course the biggest blood sugar raiser for me is corn and since I am also allergic to corn in any form I make a practice of avoiding corn in all forms.
