Caulipower Pizza

Disclaimer: I was not paid or compensated for reviewing this product. I just wanted to share my experience with a new product as we adjust our lifestyle to get healthier.

I was skeptical of trying a cauliflower type pizza crust, but you don’t find new things you like without trying them out.

I have not tried making my own crust yet, but that’s on the list. It’s time-consuming from what I’ve seen on various recipes, so I need to make sure I have the time for it. And buying cauliflower crust around here means ordering online. I’m not paying $20+ per crust!

At our local Meijer though I found Caulipower Pizza crust ($7.99 for two crusts). It does have brown rice flour in it, so it’s not quite the same. But it was worth checking out.

This is amazing! Honestly, it is. I could not taste a difference between this and a regular thin crust wheat-based pizza. And the best part is no bad after effects from the pizza crust.

We like different toppings, so I customize each one to fit what we each like.

Thin layer of pizza sauce, some shredded cheese, toppings such as pepperoni, ham, onion, mushroom, olives, etc., sprinkle of cheese on top. Then bake at 425 according to the instructions on the box. I do add about 1 minute to the recommended time to compensate for our oven’s temperature not being 100% on the money.

If you love pizza, but the crust doesn’t love you, check out this brand of crust. They also have a Facebook page: Caulipower Pizza

We also experimented with cutting the crust into 4, baking it, then use it as hamburger buns.

While the hamburgers were cooking I used a little olive oil on a cookie sheet, put two crusts on it, heated the oven to 425, and baked the crusts for approximately 9 minutes. Enough to get them cooked and crispy without burning them to a crisp. One crust cut into four pieces to make two hamburger “buns”.

Result? A decent hamburger on a crispy bun. Slightly bland, but I didn’t have all the toppings I would normally use, so those would have helped.

I paired it with asparagus cooked with garlic parmesan butter. Yum!

If you try these crusts out let me know what you think.

  1. Making your own crust is not time-consuming, in my experience. I bought a bag of riced cauliflower, mixed a third to half of the bag with two eggs, seasonings, and some cheese in a bowl. Put that on parchment paper on a tray, par-baked it at about 400, then added toppings, baked it again until cheese is melted. Delicious! I haven’t tried the above…. but making it myself was fairly easy. : )

    • Thanks for the tip! I do use riced cauliflower a lot but never thought about using it like this. I was thinking of having to chop, steam, squeeze out water, etc. Like most recipes I’ve seen. I’ll definitely try it your way!
