All pizza enthusiast have to do is determine the crust that suits their preferences, and go with one of he 8 best tasting options ranked by most keto friendly, to least.

Does Mod Pizza Have a Keto Crust?

Mod pizza is not a keto-oriented restaurant, and its menu is not marketed this way. However, that is not to say that someone cannot enjoy their delicious options while maintaining a low-carb diet. Mod pizza—an acronym for “made on demand,” founded in 2008 in Seattle is a popular pizza company equated to the Mexican grill company, Chipotle.2

This is due to its obsession with using fresh ingredients, organic dough, and customizable pizza options prepared under the watchful eyes of its customers. Everything from the crust to sauces and toppings can be chosen according to one’s preferences.

This makes MOD pizzas a worthwhile candidate for obtaining tasty pizza with a keto-friendly crust that’s low in carbs and, in turn, helps those looking to get rid of upper belly fat slim down by eliminating refined foods and transitioning into a state of ketosis.3

For a diet to be ketogenic (keto), the number of carbs consumed should be between 20 and 50 grams per day in a 2000 kcal diet.4 Most of the crusts are not keto-friendly except for the mini crust that is 6 inches but is still loaded with 38 grams of carbs and is somewhat keto friendly if it remains the only meal for the day and with low-carb toppings and sauces!

What Types of Mod Pizza Keto Crusts Are There?

Some keto crusts at Mod pizza are below 50 grams in carbohydrate content. However, these crusts must carefully be combined with the right topping and sauces to ensure the pizza is between the 20-50-gram threshold.

In this case, someone on a keto diet should be careful not to engage in another meal (on the same day) that contains carbs, as this may throw their bodies out of ketosis. Ketosis is achieved when an individual is on a keto diet—the body burns fat due to the low amount of carbs, resulting in weight loss.5

To maintain a keto diet with the Mod pizzas, the size ordered should ideally be the mini which is the 6-inch crust. This crust has 38 grams of carbohydrates and has an average of 6 slices which translates to roughly 6 grams of carbs per slice. To stay safely in ketosis, someone should limit themselves to 3 slices per meal without the toppings.

It is also possible to order the MOD and pizza salad which are both 11-inches packing 88 and 89 grams of carbs respectively—these two contain 8 slices. To maintain a keto diet, it is advisable to have a maximum of 2 slices per meal to make certain of a low carb count. The gluten friendly option has 156 grams of carbs and only one slice can be consumed to stay keto.

Patrons should additionally stick to low carb sauces and toppings listed below such as hot buffalo sauce or mild chicken, sausage or chicken after selecting their crust.
