calculator Calculating Net Atkins Count™


  • 2 1/2 cup Kroger Riced Cauliflower, frozen (85g per 3/4 cup)
  • 1 cup Parmesan cheese, shredded
  • 1/4 teaspoon Italian Seasoning
  • 1/4 tsp Garlic Powder
  • 1/16 tsp Red Chili Pepper, crushed
  • 1 each Egg
  • 1 cup, shredded Mozzarella Cheese, whole milk
  • 1 medium slice Red Onion
  • 1/4 each Red Bell Pepper, medium
  • 1/4 each Green Bell Pepper, medium
  • 2 tbsp Sliced Blacked Olives
  • 1 7/24 serving Traditional Pizza Sauce


Ingredient notes: You will need 1/4 cup of the Traditional Pizza Sauce for this recipe. Alternatively, you can use any prepared pasta sauce with 5 net carbs or fewer per 1/4 cup.
  1. Heat oven to 450°F and prepare a pizza round with parchment paper.
  2. In a microwave safe bowl, microwave the cauliflower rice for 5 minutes on high. Let it cool for about 5 minutes, or until it is cool enough to handle, then place in the center of a cloth dishtowel or a triple layer of cheesecloth. Squeeze as much liquid out of the cauliflower as possible.
  3. In a medium mixing bowl, combine the squeezed out cauliflower, parmesan cheese, Italian seasonings, garlic powder, and red pepper flakes until evenly distributed. Add the egg and mix until a uniform mixture forms. Place the cauliflower crust dough in the middle of the parchment paper and use your hands to pat out the cauliflower, creating a roughly 9-inch round that is at least ¼-inch thick.
  4. Bake the crust for 20 minutes. Use the parchment paper to flip the crust over and bake for another 10 minutes. Remove from oven and let cool for about 5 minutes before topping.
  5. Spread the pizza sauce over the crust, followed by the mozzarella cheese, and veggies. Place back into the oven and allow the cheese to melt and vegetables to soften, 5-10 minutes.
  6. Slice into quarters and serve.

Cooking Tip

How we calculate the Net Atkins Count™

In the Atkins Nutritional Approach®, the Net Atkins Count™ is calculated by subtracting the number of grams of fiber and polyols (such as glycerin and sugar alcohols) from the total grams of carbohydrates in whole foods. This reflects the idea that fiber and polyols minimally impacts blood sugar levels at the doses present in the products.
