Low Carb Pizza Hut Menu


 

Every now and then I love a good “pizza & movie” night! And sometimes I’m just out of groceries and don’t feel like getting out, lol.

Those are the times I take advantage of Pizza Hut’s online ordering and delivery – which are both genius services in my book. 😀

There’s not really a “Low Carb Pizza Hut Menu” of course, but I order a pizza with all the yummy toppings and request very little sauce – and then only eat the toppings. There’s nothing like ooey gooey cheesy pepperoni n stuff – especially when you’re craving “junk food” but want to keep it low carb!

What little bit of sauce you get on your cheese & toppings might be a concern, but fortunately they also offer Alfredo Sauce instead – which is low carb. So that’s a good option, even though they do charge an extra dollar for the Alfredo. Another low carb option on the Pizza Hut menu is bone-in wings.

I recently decided to order a large double-pepperoni pizza with the new Garlic Parmesan Wings:

Pizza Hut’s Nutritional Facts are a bit tricky when it comes to those wings! At first glance you see that a serving of the Garlic Parmesan Wings are 1 net carb. At second glance, you realize a serving is only TWO wings. 😛 Still, they are a very low carb Pizza Hut menu opton, and they’re DELICIOUS!!!

You can also order the wings “naked” (meaning no sauce/flavor) which is ZERO carbs. And they’re wings are quite good. 😉 Naked is the way to go, for sure. “Wing Nudity” heh. 😀

The mild hot wings are 8 net carbs (for TWO wings) which is quite high. I did order some, but I took a paper towel and blotched off ALL the sauce I possibly could. And then I only ate a couple here and there (not all 8 in one day).

And yes, that’s entirely too much food for one person (and one movie, lol), but it made for great leftovers! I had pizza toppings and wings several times over the next couple of days. I just put them on foil and reheated them in the oven:

So when you’re in a pinch, you can order a pizza with your favorite meaty toppings and Alfredo pizza sauce… with NAKED wings. And ditch the pizza crust of course. 😉 *cheers*

    Thanks I needed change.
    Is it good for Phase I

      Hi Joan,

      I don’t do phases. I simply stick to 20 net carbs a day as a rule. I recommend the Naked Wings as your best bet. The Garlic Parmesan were GREAT. And I did blot off most of the sauce (a normal practice) which lowers the carb count a bit more too. Enjoy!

    I confess that I love me some pizza as well! Your way of eating it sounds very good – I usually choose thin crust but still getting too many carbs. I do like peppers, onions and mushrooms with my pepperoni, and it’s also pretty hard to give up the red sauce!

    Now you got me hungry for pizza!

    • Lynn Terry says:

      LOL every now and then a pizza just seems like the perfect splurge! 😉 A slice of a large thin crust pizza (crust and all) is about 20 net carbs. Of course that depends on the size of the slice – but that’s my whole day’s worth of carb intake, so it’s not worth it. Still, it’s better than regular or thick crust for sure!

      I do love my “way of eating” (we call it WOE, lol). 😀 *cheers*

    Sounds yummy! My favorite place to get “pizza” is our local Cici’s. They will make a tin for you with any toppings you want and this way there is not crust to waste (or be tempted by – in my case!) It is wonderful. I am now able to go out and eat pizza with the family, and not have to worry about eating something I shouldn’t. I get a BIG salad, and my pizza tin – with very little sauce and meats, veggies and cheese. LOVE IT!!! 🙂

    All looks yummy Lynn! I don’t think I could just eat the topping of a pizza…I would fall off the diet wagon for sure! lol Their wings are good 🙂 Love their crust too much! 😮

    • Lynn Terry says:

      It’s called serious commitment. 😉 Bread actually won’t appeal to you at all if you’re eating low carb. You lose those cravings by about day three if you stick to 20 net carbs a day and eat mostly meat & greens… 😀

  6. Tammy says:

    I’ll have to give it a serious try. I think my body would go into major shock!! I’m currently trying to eat a LOT less meat now and more fruit and veggies. 🙂

    • Lynn Terry says:

      I don’t eat fruit myself as it’s very high in natural sugar. I do eat berries, but otherwise get everything I need from high fiber vegetables (mostly green).

      Your body actually DOES go in shock, lol. It’s called Ketosis. There’s a science behind how the low carb diet works, based on Food Combining, which causes your body to burn fat for energy instead of carbs for energy. 😀

    I saw some of that in the low carb group, however, didn’t take the time to really check it out. Thanks! 🙂

  8. Tammy says:

    Thanks so much Lynn, I will check it out! 🙂

  9. Tawnya says:

    You mention carb counts in the wings, but wondering how you count the carbs in the pizza toppings? Thank you!

    How are you doing with a 20 carb a day diet my doctor has me on 60 carbs per meal is he wrong.?

  11. Matthew Mitchell says:

    How are things going on a 20 carb a day diet.? My doctor has me on a 60 carb per meal diet, is he wrong.?

    • Lynn Terry says:

      Hi Matthew 🙂 It’s going GREAT for me! I’m leaner and healthier than I’ve been in my entire adult life.:)

      I’m not qualified to dispute your doctor, and of course don’t know any of the details. Is it for a medical issue, weight loss, or what exactly?

    Cajun dry rub is also a great option

    We order our pizza crustless, and they either put it in an aluminum pan or on parchment paper. The parchment paper pizza tends to be greasy so we have to blot away most of the excess grease but it is GOOD!
