Cauliflower crust pizza options are showing up in our supermarkets, health food stores and even in many pizza chains. This is great... but time after time I've had a client or member share with me about a cauliflower crust pizza they tried and love... only for us to dig into the ingredient list and find out the pizza they thought was keto friendly... actually wasn't.
The problem is, getting a keto-friendly cauliflower crust pizza to taste good and bake up right is quite a challenge. Therefore, almost all the cauliflower crust pizzas on the market contain non-keto grain ingredients such as rice flour.
The Worst Part Is...
Many of the restaurants and companies have this NOT keto-friendly pizza labeled as "low-carb" or even "keto". We have to be VERY careful because these terms are not regulated terms...they are marketing phrases. And, if the marketer doesn't understand that keto is a grain free diet... you can see how mistakes can easily be made.
There is actually a big difference between keto and low-carb. And you'll hear people talk about all different versions of keto. We won't get into that here... for everything you find on my website, in my programs and teaching... keto is grain-free 🙂 .
Enter Real Good Foods Cauliflower Crust Pizza
One day, a company called Real Good Foods reached out to me and asked if I'd be willing to try their newly formulated cauliflower crust pizza. Intrigued, I went to their website and saw quite a few options besides the pizza that are also keto friendly. I asked them for the ingredient of the newly reformulated cauliflower crust pizza and was very pleased and agreed to give it a try.
Watch our video review below...
When we got the cauliflower crust pizza, we were impressed with the amount of toppings and the way it baked up. Skeptical, we bit into it... and smiled at each other.
Finally! Real Good Foods has created a keto-friendly option for "pizza night". We had been making crusts from scratch... but it just isn't always feasible when you've got multiple kids in sports and other activities.
Another thing we really like about Real Good Foods is that the label with TOTAL CARBS on their packaging. So, you can calculate net carbs yourself by taking total carbs and subtracting out fiber. For example, their Cauliflower Crust Pepperoni Personal Pizza contains 11 g total carbs - 5 g fiber = 6 g net carbs.
This makes it easy regardless of the way you are counting your carbs right now.
Next, I went to some local grocery stores and looked around trying to find other keto-friendly options. I haven't been able to find one other option on the market right now except a product that's a crust you top yourself. AND Real Good Foods Cauliflower Crust Pizza beats their crust in taste and ease of use.
