If you are on a LCHF diet or just want a good healthy pizza for a quick snack you may want to try Real Good Pizza (yes it is a referral link) with only 4gms of Carbs in a 5" pizza. The crust is made of chicken and parmesan cheese and is quite tasty. They are a little more than your usual store bought pizza but have better ingredients than most and for their size are fairly filling. They deliver to your door in a foam container packed with dry ice to keep them cold. If you want to try them I have a coupon code you can use: BGRUNNER10 . If you have any trouble getting the 10% off let me know.
