Default Is pumpkin Ok??

I am finding conflicting information about the Carb cotnent of pumpkin.

Is pumpkin a low carb food? If it is, I was planning on using pumpkin slices to make mini pizza bases.

Pumpkin is an awesome highly nutritional low carb food - canned pumpkin pie filling is full of sugar but JUST pumpkin is great.

Sure, plain pumpkin is great. Pumpkin is an allowable Atkins Induction food so you know the carb count has to be pretty low.

From what I understand, raw pumpkin only has about 1.1 nc per 1/2 cup. Sounds like a low-carb food to me!
