Is Cauliflower Pizza Crust Low Carb?

When you’re hungry, there’s truly nothing more satisfying than a hot, fresh pizza. With that said, traditional pizzas don’t always offer the best nutritional values, and therefore looking for healthier pizza options is natural. For many of us, a healthier diet is adding in more complex carbohydrates, vegetables, and fresh foods, while leaving out the processed bits — something that we’ve mastered here at Fresh Brothers with our diverse menu. Additionally, some people seek a healthier lifestyle through low-carb diets. Some low-carb diets are simply lower in carbohydrates than others, while the more extreme keto diet requires less than 50 grams of carbohydrates per day. At Fresh Brothers, we offer many types of pizza crusts to fit any individual’s needs or dietary preferences, including low-carb options. A question we receive quite often is if our cauliflower pizza crust falls into that category. Let’s find out!

What Is in Cauliflower Pizza Crust?

Our cauliflower pizza crust was designed to be gluten-free and add an extra serving of vegetables to your pizza. Because it’s gluten-free, our cauliflower pizza crust is popular amongst those with sensitivities to gluten or those diagnosed with celiac disease. Our cauliflower pizza crust is made with rice, potato, and seasonings. It is completely devoid of wheat, barley, rye, or crosses of those grains.

The Nutrition Facts of Cauliflower Pizza Crust

To truly understand our cauliflower pizza crust, examining the nutrition facts is essential. Our nutrition facts are measured out for a serving size of two pieces, which is one-sixth of the pizza. In those two slices are 110 calories, 3 grams of protein, and 2.5 grams of fat, including 1.5 grams of saturated fat. As for carbs, cauliflower pizza crust comes in at 16 grams of carbohydrates. Compared to our deep dish, gluten-free, original, and skinny crusts, cauliflower crust is middle of the road for carbohydrates. It’s equivalent to a deep dish, which has 15 grams of carbohydrates. These are higher than our skinny crust’s 5 grams and our original crust’s 10 grams. Wondering where those carbs come from? While we cut out barley, rye, and other grain derivatives, our substitute ingredients of rice and potatoes are still high in carbs!

Cauliflower Crust Versus Keto Crust

When talking low-carb, bringing up keto is a must. Depending on your diet, 16 grams of carbohydrates in our cauliflower crust might not be too much. If it is though, we recommend our keto crust! It’s made with cauliflower rice and has a similar base to cauliflower crust in that regard. However, the rest of its recipe is made up of eggs, casein protein, and whey protein. Designed to have more protein and fat, our keto crust is great for avoiding carbs and feeling full.
