This Frozen Pizza Only Has 8g Carbs Because the Crust is Made Out of Chicken (+50 grams Protein)

Check out this fast, low-carb, gluten-free alternative to regular frozen pizza.

8g carb - Low Carb Frozen Pizza - Real Pizza Co

Hey guys, I wanted to share a personal tip I’m excited about. I’ve been eating low carb for more than six weeks now and the impact on my productivity and weight maintenance has been outstanding.

I have more energy throughout the day, and because I’m consuming less carbs I avoid that post-lunch blood sugar crash. It’s also been easier to achieve and maintain my target weight. All in all, a big success.

But wins don’t come free. The challenge to eating low carb is probably familiar to a lot of you: how do you find high-protein foods that are fast, healthy (or healthy enough), fill you up, and don’t break the bank? Carbs are literally in, like, everything man.

A few weeks ago I randomly saw an ad on Instagram (You follow Primer, right?) for Real Good Pizza that boasted 4g carbs. Their product locater showed it was available at the Ralph's around the block so I gave it a try.

The standout feature: the crust isn’t bread. It’s chicken.

I know it sounds like some Frankenstein of food science, but I was curious.

The large pizzas come in at a whopping 50 grams of protein and just 8 grams of carbs. That’s not per serving – that’s the entire 6″ pizza.

Real Good pizzas are the bizarro inverted image of pizza you normally eat, which has a massive amount of carbs and a measly afterthought of protein.

So how does it actually taste?

Look, it’s still a frozen pizza. It's not revolutionizing the pie. The sauce is typical and generic and the chicken crust doesn’t taste much like pizza crust or chicken (or really much of anything).

But for a quick, easy meal that takes less than 5 minutes and is low carb/high protein, it's incredible. If you're able to enjoy other regular frozen pizza, then this will be awesome for you.

Easy Enhancements

I do some things to punch it up:

  • Add basil, peppers, green onions, and garlic powder to enhance taste and freshness.
  • The instructions say most people prefer to eat them right out of the microwave but I found the results to be soggy.
  • Instead, cook it for 3.5 minutes in the microwave, and then bring a cast iron skillet up to high heat with a dab of butter and brown the crust to make it a little crispier

A great option for fast, high-protein eating

Don’t get me wrong: there are a lot of great options for eating high protein, high fat, and low carb. And you should definitely endeavor to eat fresh, whole foods as often as possible.

I love the Real Good Pizza for exactly what it’s good for: You want something fast and easy that isn't the typical keto fare. Chicken-crust pizza: mission accomplished.

    I absolutely love the cheeseburger pie on Linda’s Low Carb Website. It’s great with some pickles and perhaps some sour cream (for some tang) or other low carb condiments. There are also a lot of other good recipes on there.

      haha yeah! For me and my goals right now, the low carb-high protein and convenience outweigh my salt concerns. You have to figure out what’s important to you and pick your battles

        i feel a little starstruck. i’ve been following your site for a while and never have commented before, and then bang. it’s you.

        you guys do a great job, andrew. i look forward to your updates.

        also if you’re ever looking into doing a full article on convenient meal options, look into beetnik organic. they’re inexpensive, generous, and really great. not to mention they’re one of few frozen food manufacturers using low-carb and high-fiber ingredients like sweet potatoes and caulflower rice. i swear by them.

    “Primer is proudly spam-free.”

    Yeah, ok. This is spam. Primer content is increasingly useless, and throwing paid articles such as this one into my email is a one-way ticket to unsubscribing.

    There used to be good content here. This is junk.

      yes and no – at least the vast majority of the content is still tailored to suit the interests of most readers – not like he’s trying to sell us nail polish or something. also, things like this could easily be made at home

      Hey PM,

      This is not an ad or spam or anything else. I actually stumbled across these, was intrigued, and have since rebought them multiple times. Since I started Primer in 2008, we’ve regularly featured diet and nutrition, food content and product recommendations just like this.

      Honestly, I have to admit, that this comment is incredibly frustrating to read. I have no relationship with this company. Primer is a website that finds and links to products we think are worthy of attention, and I know there are a lot of low-carb guys out there that will find this to be useful like I did. All of our sponsored posts are always clearly labeled, more so than most websites (unfortunately) and always will be. I say it’s frustrating because it implies that I’ll have to second-guess things I think are valuable unless they’re made by a household name like J.Crew. What’s the difference between this post and our $99 briefcase or $13 sunglasses posts?

      But I do understand where your frustration is born from, across the internet the lines between editorial and advertisement are being blurred to the point that they’re almost indistinguishable. Websites, Youtubers, and influencers bury sponsorship call outs in small text or leave them out entirely, and as a consumer it’s exhausting trying to figure out what’s what. Which is why I’ve always committed to clearly labeling partnerships and always will. Basically, my promise to you and every Primer reader has always been if it doesn’t say sponsored, it ain’t sponsored.

      Thanks for reading,
      Andrew

    might take a couple trials and errors, but looks like it would be easy enough to make this yourself:

    just make a giant ground turkey or chicken patty and top it with pizza toppings.

    probably need to be pan fired first, then topped and finished off in the oven.

      Yeah definitely! Could even slice or pound chicken breast really thin and do a chicken parmesan type thing. For me I like that it only takes 5 minutes and 3.5 are the microwave haha
