Picture it – it’s Saturday night, we have a few friends around, I’ve had a few low carb Wild Strawberry Daiquiris and we decide it’s time for some food. Someone suggests pizza. I groan internally, knowing the effort I have put into keeping my evening low carb could all go out the window in the blink of an online pizza order. So I offer to place the order and head on to the Domino’s site, since Grace alerted me to the fact they have a new low carb pizza base.
45 minutes and 50 bucks later and voila ! Low carb pizza is arriving at my doorstep. I warned the other guests 2 of the flavours were low carb, and they hooked in to the high carb supreme I ordered them. I opened my low carb pizza box with great hope of finding an awesome looking pizza, and was not disappointed. My low carb pizza looked just like the other pizzas, it smelt just like the other pizzas, but did it taste just like the other pizzas?
Well the answer is a yes and a no. The base certainly holds up the pizza toppings as you would hope. It’s quite soft though, so there’s no crunchy crust to speak of. And it’s a little spongey. But that’s not to say it was bad ! It just kind of … wasn’t. It didn’t taste like anything much at all. Again, this doesn’t mean it was bad, it was just a bit lacking in taste.
I took some quick (and slightly drunk) pics of the pizza for you so you could take a good look for yourself, although nothing quite compares to trying it yourself. Click on the pictures to see a larger image.
For a quick and easy low carb dinner it’s not a bad option, although if you are going to eat 3-4 pieces like I normally like to with pizza, well you’re going to be heading into the mid 20′s with the carb count. This alone makes it a treat food for me as I generally try to keep my carbs at about 25-30g for the entire day. It is however yet another fantastic step in the right direction for Australia as low carb finally comes to the forefront with food outlets. It’s more choice for us for a quick low carb option.
