CAULIPOWER pizza review

As a pizza lover, finding health(ier) and easy alternatives is a must for me. Don’t get me wrong, I love me some real gluten-loaded, melty cheese, hefty duty pizza…but I do enjoy having a lighter option from time to time, especially during the week. 

I’m sure by now you’ve heard of cauliflower crust pizza—pretty self explanatory, but pizza with crust made out of cauliflower. You can find recipes for it all over the internet and Pinterest and make it at home as an alternative to regular pizza dough.

OR you can do what I did and find an already made option. 
Introducing CAULIPOWER (yes, power not flower) frozen pizza! 

A little history about the company and brand: 

“A Note From Gail—CAULIPOWER was born on a Pinterest fail. Really. As the mom of two boys with Celiac - an autoimmune disease leaving their bodies unable to process gluten - I tried desperately to find nutritious, gluten-free options that weren’t filled with fat, sugar, salt and calories. Frustrated, I turned to a like-minded community of healthy hackers and stumbled upon recipes (lots of them) for cauliflower crust pizza. My creation tasted just fine, but it looked awful, my kitchen was a disaster and I had spent 90 minutes I didn’t have making a pizza crust! I figured I probably wasn’t alone and, so, left my job to create CAULIPOWER.”

So, here’s the lowdown on CAULIPOWER crust ingredients: cauliflower, brown rice flour, corn starch, water, tapioca, sunflower oil, extra virgin olive oil, sugar, egg, xanthan gum, yeast, salt, vinegar, and baking powder. 

Not only are the CAULIPOWER pizza’s gluten-free, but they all have a decent amount of protein in them (10g in Veggie, 12g in Margherita, 16g in Three Cheese…per serving). Serving size of the pizzas are around 310-380 calories for half of the pie—not bad! They’re not the lowest carb option in the game, so if that matters to you, be mindful…otherwise, I love these bad boys. Every single time, they cook to crispy perfection and I never feel weighed down after eating them. Plus, you cannot tell the crust is made from cauliflower. 

Over the past few months, I have tried their Three Cheese Pizza, Margherita Pizza, Veggie Pizza…and as of last week, I made my own pizza using their Plain Crust Pizza.



Here’s how I jazz up my CAULIPOWER Plain Crust Pizza:

Poblano Farm Pizza Sauce 
Sliced Tomatoes 
Red onion 
Kalamata Olives 
Chopped Artichokes 
Capers
Fresh Basil
Argula 

I went for a sans-cheese, vegetable pizza and it was SO good. 

I am a huge fan of CAULIPOWER pizzas and I totally recommend checking them out. You can find them in the frozen aisle at your grocery store, or you can order them here on amazon.

    1. The effectiveness of IEEE Project Domains depends very much on the situation in which they are applied. In order to further improve IEEE Final Year Project Domains practices we need to explicitly describe and utilise our knowledge about software domains of software engineering Final Year Project Domains for CSE technologies. This paper suggests a modelling formalism for supporting systematic reuse of software engineering technologies during planning of software projects and improvement programmes in Final Year Projects for CSE.
