Hello everyone! Welcome to my blog and thank you so much for visiting. I am pleased to announce my very first product review with you today. Please let me know what you think… thoughts and opinions welcome! You can comment below or contact me privately.
If you are caught up in the low carb craze like myself you might be wondering how you can still enjoy foods that are typically loaded up with carbohydrates. The great news is that nowadays there a ton of healthy alternatives available to those leading a low-carb lifestyle.
I think it is safe to say that everyone LOVES pizza! Pizza is a universal food and so versatile. There are so many way to construct a great, tasty one! I discovered Realgood pizza recently and after flipping over the box and analyzing the nutrition facts I was sold! That big black dot that says, “guilt free” was enough to get me on board. Realgood pizzas are high in protein, low in carbohydrates, and grain-free (gluten-free). If you are on a keto diet I highly suggest giving these a whirl.
There are a couple ways to go about making a low carb pizza. There is cauliflower crust and then there is a meat-based crust. I looked over the ingredients and learned that the crust is composed of chicken and Parmesan cheese. The chicken is free of antibiotics and hormones, and since Realgood Foods cares about your health and well-being their pizzas are free of preservatives.
Each large pizza is 7 inches of greatness and has 50 grams of protein and 8 carbs. This size is great for dinner time. There are smaller pizzas available that would be fabulous for a yummy lunch. The smaller pizzas are 5 inches. The large and small pizzas are available in 3 flavors: three cheese, pepperoni, and supreme.
I decided on the supreme pizza because I am a big fan of lots of toppings on my pizza. I baked my Realgood pizza in the oven and the results were wonderful! Realgood suggests leaving the cardboard on the bottom of the pizza and placing it on a baking sheet.
There are some other ways you can heat them up. Realgood recommends taking the pizza out of the oven (removing the cardboard as well) and finishing off in a frying pan for a couple of minutes to crisp up the crust. You can also try them out in an air-fryer (w/o the cardboard) at 350 degrees for 12-14 minutes. I do own an air-fryer and I will be trying out this method in the near future. They also suggest grilling your pizzas (without the cardboard) for 6-8 minutes on medium heat.
I am thrilled to see that Realgood Foods also has breakfast pizzas available and enchiladas! Breakfast pizzas are available in three flavors: pepperoni, sausage, and bacon. There are 4 types of enchiladas available: cheese, beef, chicken, and pork.
I tested out the sausage breakfast pizza this morning and I am feeling pretty good about it! This is the kind of fuel I need to get me through the day. The breakfast pizza that I had is made of scrambled eggs, mozzarella cheese, a cheese sauce, and Italian sausage. Like the lunch/dinner pizzas the crust is also made up of chicken and Parmesan cheese to keep the carbs low. I included a photo of the nutrition facts below and the breakfast pizza is only 4g carbs, 25g of protein, and 280 calories.
I still have yet to try out the Realgood Foods enchiladas. I am pretty positive that my family will enjoy those too. We do love our Mexican food over here!
My final thoughts: I am so glad I gave these a whirl! I have been curious about this brand for quite some time. My family enjoyed the supreme pizza so much we are crossing our fingers that Realgood Foods will release a large, family sized pizza (we shared two 7″ pizzas). When I indulge in a pizza I also love to have some breadsticks available. It would be totally awesome to have those available in the future. I am looking forward to seeing where this brand goes from here. I know they are increasing in popularity and the possibilities are endless on what future products they will carry in their line of foods.

Since I am always looking out for an awesome deal I found an Ibotta deal on Realgood Foods. You can redeem this up to 10x per receipt and get a rebate of $2 for each item!
Deal scenarios at Kroger:
- Pizzas on sale for $5.99 (reg 6.99) and use the Ibotta rebate to get $2 cashback so the total would be 3.99
- Enchiladas on sale for $3.99 (reg 4.99) and use the Ibotta rebate to get $2 cashback and your out of pocket cost is $1.99 for each enchilada
So what do you think? Will you give Realgood Foods a whirl? I sure am glad I did!
