Evol Low Carb Lifestyle Uncured Pepperoni Pizza Review

Evol Low Carb Lifestyle Uncured Pepperoni Pizza

How do you make a low-carb pizza crust? Well, one way is to make that crust entirely out of meat and parmesan cheese. It sounds crazy, but Evol is actually crazy enough to try it. The result was the Low Carb Lifestyle frozen pizzas.

To be honest, when we tried the cheese version, we were actually expecting maybe a super thin gluten-free crust or something. We certainly weren’t expecting a chicken-based crust.

Today, however, we’re checking out the Evol Uncured Pepperoni Pizza, and this time we’re going in knowing what to expect. We’re wondering how this might color our perception of this pizza (the last one weirded us out a bit).

One thing we’d totally forgotten about is that this is not a microwavable pizza, despite its tiny size. No, you’ll need to cook this in the oven for more than 20 minutes. This isn’t a quick grab-and-go meal here. (If you want to see the full cooking instructions, check out the package scans at the bottom of this review.)

We accidentally left this in the oven for a bit too long, and that’s how we made an important discovery: One of the benefits of a crust made out of chicken is that it doesn’t turn into crispy charcoal if you accidentally overcook it by six or seven minutes. This pizza actually survived our negligence like a true champion. We don’t recommend cooking it this long on purpose, of course, but if you accidentally leave it in for too long, you should be pretty okay.

The only difference between this pizza and the cheese version is that this one adds pepperoni. Our pepperoni ended up pretty crispy, but that’s likely due to the fact that we overcooked it. It’s still good, though, and a lot of people actually really like crispy pepperoni, so it’s hard to consider this a bad thing.

We have to be honest, though: The fact that this “crust” is basically a thick piece of lunchmeat still weirds us out. It doesn’t feel like crust at all. It’s juicy and chicken-tasting, as you might expect from a crust made of chicken. There’s also a weird aftertaste, which we definitely don’t think is due to the fact that we overcooked it. It’s just a weird-tasting slab of meat.

The sauce and cheese are pretty okay here, though both things are applied with a stingy hand. We think more sauce and cheese would have gone a long way in hiding the oh-so-obvious fact that this is not a bread-based crust. But we’ve also been eating a lot of Lotzza Motzza pizza, which is loaded with both of those things, so maybe our expectations are just super high right now.

You might have mostly knocked the carbs out of this pizza (there’s still 8g of carbohydrates here), but you’re also looking at 410 calories and a whopping 1,620 mg of sodium. Is that tradeoff worth it? We suppose it depends on how determined you are to eat pizza while also reducing your carb intake. That sodium level really makes us wince, though.

The Evol Low Carb Lifestyle Uncured Pepperoni Pizza proves that there are some benefits to making pizza crust out of chicken. However, we don’t think those benefits are enough to make this pizza worth your time. Especially when you consider the colossal amount of sodium you’ll be consuming here. But if you really, really want some pizza, and you’ve sworn off all things made of bread, this is an option you might consider.
