Nothing can ever truly replace good, old-fashioned pizza. I know this, you know this, we're all on the same page. Even so, sometimes circumstances call for some adjustments. Be it health goals, diet restrictions or just simply too much of a good thing, we do, at times, look for ways to enjoy our favorite foods with just a little extra nutrition thrown in.
Such is the case with pizza -- there's a reason gluten-free and cauliflower options have blown up in popularity as of late. We want everyone to be able to enjoy a cheesy slice of goodness, no matter what. Which is why we're thrilled that Banza has our back.
Banza, the pasta alternative brand that changed the way I look at mac 'n' cheese, has exploded as a favorable option for carb-y goodness. The name of their game? Chickpeas! By swapping typical wheat with the legume, not only are carbs levels lowered and gluten eradicated, but it also delivers an extra bit of fiber and protein to your meal. And they just introduced a brand new way to utilize this mastery: pizza crust.
Yesterday, Banza revealed their four new products on Instagram: an individual pizza crust, plus three preassembled frozen pizzas (four cheese, margherita and roasted veggie).
Oh, imagine the possibilities this chickpea crust carries! Better yet, imagine all the possibilities that crust alternatives offer. Or, allow us to do it for you. Here are six other ways to enjoy pizza, on "crusts" you may have never thought of before.
Quick disclaimer, though: We still encourage ordering the greasy takeout pizza. It's 2020, after all.
