We all need to acknowledge it at this point: Cauliflower is the world’s most versatile vegetable.
Who woulda thought?
Some people deserve credit/honorable mention. You can think of carrots in the light of their amazing noodle impersonation. That was something I didn’t see coming. Zucchini is also capable of doing the same trick and can be used in many different ways.
But what about cauliflower? It could be because it’s bland and undescript that it’s easy to adapt into healthier versions for a lot of other stuff. Caulflower rice, along with kung pao nuggets, are good things.
…but now pizza crusts? That’s possible. This seals the deal. Please visit Trader Joe’s Cauliflower Pizza Crust. It took me a little while to fully grasp it.
Advantages: Gluten-free if you have any concerns. Fewer carbs. More fiber. The inherent caulifloweriness of the flavor is almost lost when the toppings are added. Nearly believable bona fide pizza crust.
See image. Flippety-floppety soft and bendy.
Following the instructions on the box, we placed the frozen caulicorn disk directly on the oven rack. To my amazement, the frozen cauli-corn disc didn’t break down and create a Superfund-level disaster area on the oven floor. It was tempting to scrub out any pizza left overs, but it did not happen. Although it did brown a bit, it remained soft and fluffy …. if this was a regular crust, I would say that it was soft and super-doiughy. But, that’s not right. However, it remained intact.
Sandy and I enjoyed it, as did the children. The crust was not made from cauliflower. This might be a way for you to sneak more veggies into your kids’ diets. We might pick it up again to see if the crust is crispier if it is baked by itself before topping it with toppings. The cost of this item is $3.99. This seems high when you consider how difficult it would be to make one. You can use it to make flatbreads or breadsticks all without bread. More power to the cauliflower.
Bottom line: Trader Joe’s Cauliflower Pizza Crust is 7.5 out 10 Golden Spoons
