Well my high fat diet is over – I lost 9lb in 11 days, now it’s onto low-carb maintenance to make sure it stays gone again. And what better way to start than with the new Pizza Slices from the team behind Plan Bread Broccoli Bread. You might remember I told you about this a while back (click here to refresh your memory) but in a nutshell, a gentleman called Paul Shackleton had invented a top secret formula that allowed him to make a gluten free bread heavily based around broccoli making it super low-carb. And very tasty it was too.
Now he’s started making pizza slices from a variation of the dough – and very tasty they are too. They come in a microwavable bag that you pop in the pingy thing whole. One minute later take it out, peel off the outside and voila, perfect looking pizza. It even looks all grilled and yummy. And it tastes like it too. Okay it hasn’t got that snappy texture of proper oven grilled pizza, and in places it was a tiny bit dry, but if you’re on low carb and you’re craving pizza, this, my people is your answer. It would absolutely and totally fill that cheesy shaped hole. And you get exciting green dough to amaze all your friends.
I still can’t tell you what it’s made of. In fact, now I think about it I feel that another attempt to quiz him on this matter might be why Paul decided to drop it off at a friend’s office rather than bring it me himself….hmmm, sneaky. What I can tell you though is that the Mozzarella and Sundried Tomato one I had yesterday had only 188 calories and 3g of carbohydrates per fairly hefty slice. There’s also a Chicken and Salami one that has 236 calories but still only 3g of carbs. Sadly the fact that it got dropped off at lunchtime and it was 10pm by the time I got it home meant I didn’t think eating that was the absolute healthiest idea I’d ever had. Apparently, though the slices tot up to around 50% less calories and 90 percent carbs than even the lowest cal/carb pizza out there.
Right now it’s only available for delivery in London, but if you want to find out more, the details are on their website here
