Cauliflower Pizza Crust From Trader Joe’s

Trader-Joe-Cauliflower-Pizza-Crust-Review

Last night I had a great date with my husband at Pomo and had a delicious gluten-free pizza which reminded me of a great pizza I made earlier this week.

I was in Trader Joe’s to pick up my usual gluten-free crust and there was Cauliflower Crust, a steal at under $4 so I excitedly put it in my basket. The cashier let me know to follow the directions EXACTLY or it would fall apart.

Pizza 1

I went home and played my favorite cooking game, what is in my fridge. I did not have tomato sauce so I got creative. I did Vegan White Sauce (leftover vegan alfredo sauce) and Artichoke Pesto (jarred, also vegan), Vegan Cheese (from Trader Joes already shredded) , tomatoes and mushrooms. Topped with Romaine (only because I was out of arugula or spinach and I love salad on pizza) and balsamic vinegar. Because of how many packaged ingredients I used, this a treat meal but much still much healthier than take out pizza.

Pizza 2

 

Pretty good crust. It is not doughy like pizza dough but if you are used to gf dough that falls apart when you eat it, this is very sturdy, I was able to actually eat it as pizza. Good flavor, I think I like this better than their gf crust. It is a 10 oz. crust and there are 6 servings per crust at just 80 calories each.  It has 17 grams of carbs per serving, so not low carb but 1/2 the carbs of regular crust. .  It is a gluten-free crust is made of cauliflower, corn flour, water, cornstarch, potato starch, olive oil, and salt. This will definitely go on my regular shopping list for a quick lunch or dinner.
