The game has just been changed for Keto lovers.
National pizza chain Blaze Pizza just announced they're rolling out a keto pizza crust with just 6g of net carbs by replacing traditional flour with high fat, low carb ingredients like flaxseed, cheese and eggs.

And that's not all, Blaze Pizza is also launching a vegetable based cauliflower crust! Both of these healthier options are gluten free and will be available starting today (Tuesday 7/16)!
