After finding good products in South Beach Diet’s deli wraps and peanut butter cookies The Glucoholic was pleased to find South Beach Diet Pepperoni Pizza at his local grocer. In a crowded market of personal sized frozen pizzas, this pizza is a serious contender for best in show. Of course, it’s real benefit is competitive taste without supplying more carbohydrates than a person should eat in a week!
Regarding taste, this pizza is on par with most other frozen pizzas. The wheat crust is somewhat different, but rather tasty. The sauce, cheese, and pepperoni are comparable to the same ingredients in other frozen pizzas as well. If you like a crispier crust you can heat this pizza in the oven, but whether you prepare it in the oven or the microwave be careful with your first bite because the toppings will be plasma hot.
Serving size is one pizza. Each pizza contains 350 calories and 12 grams of fat, of which none are trans fat. Each pizza also contains 25mg of cholesterol, 700mg of sodium, 27 grams of digestible carbohydrates, 9 grams of fiber, and 31 grams of protein! You’ll also get forty percent of the recommended daily allowance of calcium in each pizza.
The Glucoholic would normally be concerned with 27 grams of carbohydrate in one meal, but checking blood glucose levels seemed to indicate that the South Beach Diets’ choice of carbohydrates does lead to more steady absorption and no unusual spikes. Diabetics should monitor blood glucose levels to verify this for themselves as everyones’ metabolism is different.
