You may have heard of a Ketogenic Diet or keto for short. The Keto diet is high in fats and low in carbs. This diet has been proven to lower blood sugar and insulin levels. There are many benefits when it comes to the keto diet. Besides all of the health benefits that may result from this diet, some yummy food options will help you stick to your diet. One of our favorite options is Cauliflower crust pizza.

Watch the carbs

Sometimes manufacturers will include ingredients in the crust that will make it have a higher carb content than what you would normally expect. These ingredients can sometimes include:

  • Flour
  • Sugar
  • Starches
  • Rice

Consider the calories

Some research we found shows that the crust can have anywhere from 80 calories to 600. Now, the calories of one slice will be different from the whole pizza itself. The toppings of the pizza are a different story. If you are trying to stick to a diet it is important to look at all variables.

Look at all ingredients

If you are trying to stick to the Keto diet, you need to be watching all of the ingredients. The cauliflower isn’t high in fat, but the cheese and oil may be. Along with the crust, you should look at exactly what ingredients are being mixed in with the cauliflower. Sometimes they will mix in some of the previously listed ingredients to help the crust stick together easier or to make it taste better.

Why choose cauliflower over regular pizza crust

Some of the health benefits of cauliflower crust include:

  • High in vitamins K and C
  • Help reduce high blood pressure
  • Strengthens immunity
  • Low in calories
  • Low in carbohydrates
  • Gluten-free

Many people choose this option over a regular pizza because they may have some health restrictions where they are unable to consume regular pizza crust. Overall, cauliflower pizza crust is a healthier option. If you only have pizza once in a while and don’t have any health restrictions, choose what is best for you and enjoy pizza without having to feel guilty.
