No Dough, No Problem!
Usually, pizza is the last food people would list as a healthy, diet-friendly food. If anything, pizza is considered a classic ‘cheat food.’ The No Dough Pizza Co is looking to change that reputation.
The Lincolnshire-based company is the site of the latest innovation in low-carb convenience food. They now sell four varieties of low-carb pizzas in over one hundred locations throughout Britain. According to the company website, their mission is to make “great, healthy food accessible for everyone to enjoy.”1 To that end, they’ve developed a pizza crust that’s 70 percent cauliflower-based. This allows their pizzas to low-carb, low-calorie, gluten-free, and high in vitamin C.
Lately, there’s been a lot of buzz in the food world around low-carb foods. This is because of the heightened popularity of low-carb diets such as the ketogenic and Paleo diets. Health professionals have begun emphasizing the importance of lowering one’s carb intake to lose weight and treat several health conditions. While carbs do deliver a punch of energy, they also translate to greater stored body fat and higher insulin levels. Low-carb diets encourage fat as energy sources, effectively combating the pitfalls of a carb-heavy diet.
As more people start these low-carb diets, food companies have responded by offering a more extensive selection of low-carb options.
Many following low-carb lifestyles have embraced cauliflower. This is because cauliflower is an extremely versatile vegetable. Though traditionally eaten raw or roasted, lately cauliflower has been the subject of several food experiments. Recipes now abound that turn the veggie into rice, bread, and pasta.
The benefits of cauliflower include high vitamin, high fiber content, and low sugar content. Add to that the fact that it is easy to manipulate into other forms, and cauliflower has become a boon to the low-carb trend. No Dough Pizza’s crust, for instance, boasts 60 percent fewer carbs than traditional crusts, while being vegan and gluten-free. This makes getting your pizza fix not just guilt-free, but actively good for you. A real win-win all around!
