Rapid Fired Pizza’s Low-Carb Recipe Contest Draws 300 Entries

Rapid Fired Pizza, headquartered in Kettering, Ohio, received almost 300 entries in its first contest asking customers to share their favorite low-carb No-Doh pizza recipes for a chance to win free pizza for a year.

According to a press release, Molly Gibson won the contest with her creation called Roasted Italian. She will receive a free pizza a week for a year. Featuring a spinach base and pesto sauce, the Roasted Italian No-Doh comes topped with pepperoni, ground beef, sausage crumble, green peppers, red onion, tomato, roasted garlic, basil, mozzarella, Parmesan cheese and Rapid Fired’s special The Bomb Parmesan blend.

Prizes for second and third place winners were also awarded, but names and recipes were not provided in the press release.

Rapid Fired’s No-Doh Pizza allows customers to cut the carbs and keep the flavor by swapping out the chain’s standard thin or pan crust with a choice of fresh spinach leaf or grated parmesan cheese. With either “crust” you choose, the company says, your carbs are reduced by up to 98 percent, and you save a minimum of 350 calories.

“The sheer volume of the entries we had is a testament to the fact that people are looking for low-carb options and are thrilled that we can provide that to them in pizza,” said Kelly Gray, vice-president of Rapid Fired Pizza.

Rapid Fired Pizza opened its first restaurant in September 2015 and has since grown to 35 locations in five states, including four stores inside Kroger’s locations.
