RAPID CITY, S.D. (KEVN) - In order to provide customers with healthier pizza options, Blaze Fast-Fire'd Pizza has become the first national chain to launch a keto crust option.
Blaze Pizza rolls out with a keto crust and a cauliflower crust.
For those who are keeping an eye on their carbohydrate intake, this crust is only 6 grams of net carbs.
They also introduced a cauliflower crust and four life mode pizzas: keto, protein, vegetarian and vegan. These life mode pizzas are available exclusively through Blaze's mobile app or online.

"Our regular pizza has a lot of carbs this keto diet is no-carb low-carb diet and it does, it gives them an option of being able to eat out and eat pizza and still maintain their diet."
