Have you ever wondered about those cauliflower pizza crusts? Are they any good?

It has far fewer calories than traditional pizza and is gluten-free.

tasty. No taste of cauliflower at all.

A slice of cauliflower pizza isn’t quite as filling.

It’s hard to get a crispy crust. I love pizza with a crispy bottom and it turned out to be very bread like, I even tried heating it in a pan after cooking to crisp the bottom and it ended up being slightly burnt on the bottom.

Overall, it’s still pretty good. It satisfies my almost constant pizza cravings without the extra calories and veggies.

Yes! Many grocery stores now offer premixed cauliflower in the produce department or frozen vegetable department. Both can be used in this recipe. For best results, be sure to drain excess liquid before use.
