Foster Farms is offering its new Smart Crust frozen pizza as a low-carb option for pizza lovers. It is available in three varieties: Four Cheese, Uncured Pepperoni and Uncured Bacon Club.
Each Smart Crust pizza cuts carbs down to 4 grams per serving while providing 25 grams of protein. The crust is made from Foster Farms chicken breast, egg whites and cheese instead of flour. The pizza is gluten-free, grain free and Keto-certified, prior to the addition of toppings. Smart Crust pizza retails for $5.99 per 8-8.5-ounce package.
“We know that eating healthy and cutting carbs is something more consumers are trying to do, including looking for gluten-free choices,” said Jennifer Corsiglia-Keim, marketing director for Foster Farms. “Finding delicious low carb options for foods we crave isn’t always easy. With Smart Crust, you get everything you love about pizza but without the carbs. This is pure pizza joy instead of pizza guilt.”
Smart Crust is now available in the personal size frozen pizza section of select markets nationwide including: Los Angeles and San Diego, California; Seattle and Tacoma, Washington; Portland, Oregon; Salt Lake City, Utah; Denver, Colorado; Tucson, Arizona; Houston and Dallas/Fort Worth, Texas; Wichita, Kansas; Indianapolis, Indiana; Cincinnati and Columbus, Ohio; Nashville, Tennessee; Raleigh-Durham, North Carolina; Richmond, Virginia; and Atlanta, Georgia.
Major retailers participating in the Smart Crust launch include Kroger, Albertsons and Safeway. Harris Teeter will carry Smart Crust at stores in North and South Carolina. Starting in late July, consumers looking to find the nearest store carrying Smart Crust can visit the Foster Farms store locator fosterfarms.com/where-to-buy. Foster Farms’ Smart Crust launch will be supported by a digital and social media campaign beginning in late July.
Foster Farms specializes in fresh, all-natural chicken and turkey products free of preservatives, additives or injected sodium enhancers. Based in California’s Central Valley, with ranches in the Pacific Northwest, the company’s fresh chicken and turkey are produced in or near each region served.
Foster Farms recently donated an additional 400,000 servings of poultry to community hunger relief organizations throughout California to help families impacted economically by Covid-19. Prior to this donation, the family-owned company had announced a donation of two million servings of protein to food banks and community organizations on the West Coast, and in Louisiana and Alabama.
