Tuscan Cauliflower Crust Pizza

Tuscan Cauliflower Crust Pizza is an easy, delicious, no fuss recipe. Why? Because you purchase the cauliflower pizza crust! No DIY’ing here–I hope that doesn’t bum you guys out. If you are like me, you will be rejoicing that you can purchase cauliflower pizza crust at the store!

The slight cauliflower taste compliments the sausage and kale in the Tuscan Cauliflower Crust Pizza recipe really well. Honestly, I didn’t even miss having “real crust.” Personally, I prefer vegetable substitutes for foods that are generally made from grains. It feels better on my stomach, I don’t feel as weighed down, and I like knowing that I am getting an extra boost of nutrients from the vegetables. I often swap riced cauliflower for rice and spaghetti squash or zucchini for pasta noodles. Just so we are clear though, in a pre-made cauliflower pizza crust, you will likely find some type of flour–likely from a grain, starch, or legume. The specific crust I used (see below) has chickpea flour and potato flour in it–albeit lower on the ingredient list than the cauliflower. Still, it is a healthier and lower carb option compared to mainstream pizza crusts you will find at the store.

I will definitely buy this crust again to experiment with other pizza combinations, but it could also be cooked plain, cut into squares, and used for a dipper in spinach dip, hummus, or any other kind of spread you would use a cracker with. Hmmm…now my wheels are turning! Whether you dip the crust or cook up a pizza, enjoy it!
