NOT ALL CAULIFLOWER CRUST IS CREATED EQUAL!


RGF_11.JPEG

Cauliflower crust pizzas are all the craze these days, but it’s kinda crazy when you look at the difference between different types of cauliflower crust pizzas. Some are still super high in carbs, like 20g of carbs a serving! Which obviously doesn’t fit within my ketogenic lifestyle.

Real Good Food's new Cauliflower Pizza has only 9g Total Carbs / 6 Net Carbs and 19g of Protein per serving. I love that I can pronounce and recognize all of the ingredients in these Cauliflower Pizzas. Other companies use fillers and weird starches to add texture to their crusts but Real Good Foods doesn’t need to!

 

Real Good Food's Cauliflower Pizza is new and improved! They revamped their low carb cauli-crust recipe and I love it! I’ve always like Real Good Food’s Cauliflower Pizza. But I love that they weren’t satisfied with a pretty good product and wanted it to be GREAT!

The new crust is much more robust when it comes to flavor. It has the crunch and texture that we all love from Pizza but without all of the carbs. It also cooks up beautifully!

 

I always keep a couple Real Good Food Pizza's in my freezer. It's a great option for those nights when Kaia and I are too tired to cook up dinner. Sometimes I cook one up and then pack it for our Lunches. It gives me peace of mind that I can just throw a Cauliflower Pizza in the oven and know that both my daughter and I are getting the nutrition we need without the crap we don't.

KETO RECIPE: Cauliflower Nachos

Cauliflower is one of my favorite Keto Ingredients! It is so versatile and hearty! I probably couldn’t do Keto with out it!

This Cauliflower Nacho recipe is one of my favorites. It was inspired by my local Whole Food’s actually! I saw it on their menu and ordered it a couple of times. I really liked the idea of Keto Nachos, so I decided to make it at home!

This recipe is Dairy Free, but you can add Cheese! Just top the roasted cauliflower with shredded cheese and place back in the oven for 5 minutes. You can also add Shredded Brisket or Chicken if you are looking for more protein.
