Foster Farms tackled the issue of reducing carbohydrates in pizzas with their new Smart Crust frozen pizza. Available in three varieties, Four Cheese, Uncured Pepperoni, and Uncured Bacon Club, each pizza cuts carbs down to 4 grams per serving while providing 25 grams of protein. The crust is crafted from Foster Farms chicken breast, egg whites, and cheese instead of flour. Smart Crust pizza is gluten-free, grain-free and Keto-certified, according to the company.
“We know that eating healthy and cutting carbs is something more consumers are trying to do, including looking for gluten-free choices. Finding delicious low-carb options for foods we crave isn’t always easy. With Smart Crust, you get everything you love about pizza but without the carbs. This is pure pizza joy instead of pizza guilt,” said Jennifer Corsiglia-Keim, marketing director Foster Farms.
Smart Crust is now available in the frozen pizza section of select markets nationwide at major retailers including Kroger, Albertsons, and Safeway. Harris Teeter will carry Smart Crust at stores in North and South Carolina. Starting in late July, consumers looking to find the nearest store carrying Smart Crust can visit the Foster Farms store locator. Smart Crust pizza retails for USD5.99 per 8-8.5-ounce package.
