Do you miss pizza? How happy would you be if I told you there’s a new low-carb pizza in town and it’s really good? Plus you can order it at 10% off (see discount code below).
When I was first diagnosed type 2 (more than 17 years ago), I could eat pizza and still keep my blood glucose (BG) under control as long as I ate one slice plus a salad instead of my customary three slices. Over time, pizza became one of those trigger foods for me that always spiked my BG no matter what. I just learned to live without pizza (unless it had a cauliflower crust, of course).
Recently, The Real Good Food Company sent me the following note:
Skeptical, but intrigued, I agreed to sample the low-carb pizza and write an unbiased review.
Wow! It tasted like REAL pizza. And it was REAL good.
Because the crust is made from chicken breast and parmesan cheese, it’s gluten-free too. I tried both the Pepperoni and Supreme flavors. One serving is a personal-sized 5-inch pizza. Here’s how they stack up nutritionally:
Before eating one of the pizzas, my BG was 120. One hour later, my BG was 136; two hours later, it was 126. Try that with any other pizza!
Now, I’ve eaten gluten-free and low-carb pizzas before. Let’s face it, most of them have crust that tastes like cardboard. Real Good Pizza’s crust tastes delicious. I’m tempted to serve this pizza to my nephews and niece to see if they notice anything “weird” about the crust. I’ll bet they won’t. In fact, one review on the Real Good Food website says “My 8-year-old son has type 1 diabetes. Typically pizza is one of the toughest foods for people with diabetes as the mix of high carbs and fat makes it tough to dose insulin. With The Real Good Pizza, he can still eat his favorite food with only 4 carbs and have no harmful effects on his blood sugars. And the best part is, he LOVES it!”
The pizzas come frozen and you can heat them in your microwave or conventional oven. I found the best method is the one for the “Crispier Crust Connoisseur” – after microwaving, cook the pizza for a minute or two in a nonstick pan on the stovetop. It’s a little more trouble, but totally worth it.
How to Get Your Own Real Good Low-Carb Pizza
Ready to try this pizza? It comes in three flavors: Pepperoni, Three Cheese, and Supreme. They ship the pizza on dry ice, so it arrives completely frozen. The minimum order is 12 pizzas, but shipping is free in the continental U.S. and there’s a satisfaction guarantee.
