They say there’s no such thing as bad pizza, and we’d tend to agree, except for one minor problem: pizza’s not exactly health food. Sure, you can top it with vegetables (and here are 30 great vegetarian pizzas you can make) or use a whole wheat crust (try this Whole Wheat Veggie Pizza for starters). But however you slice it, it’s still bread topped with cheese…right?
Enter: Cauliflower Pizza
This cheesy, crispy-crusted (and somewhat unexpected) pizza is chock full of fiber and vitamin C. It’s a pizza game-changer, and guess what? Costco, one of our favorite budget food-shopping spots, has added it to their frozen food selection!
What’s In It?
The pizza everyone’s drooling over at Costco contains lots of cauliflower, plus rice flour to bind everything together. It’s made by Milton’s Craft Bakers, it’s called Thin & Crispy Cauliflower Crust Pizza and though it contains rice flour, it’s totally gluten-free. Costco currently has the Margherita (with four cheeses!) and the Roasted Vegetable versions.
Cauliflower has taken the healthy eating world by storm. It steps in as a low-carb, high-fiber, vitamin-rich replacement for carbs. You’ve probably heard the buzz about cauliflower rice (here’s how to make it). You can also create a cauliflower pizza at home, even one that’s completely grain-free. Use the recipe for these Cheesy Cauliflower Breadsticks and turn ’em into grain-free pizza crust by patting the ingredients into a pan.
What Are People Saying About Costco’s Cauliflower Pizza?
We know people love Costco’s hot-from-the-oven pizza slices (here’s why they’re so good). But people are obsessed with the cauliflower pizza, too. (That includes me, who is always ready to jump on the gluten-free bandwagon because I actually think some gluten-free food tastes…wait for it…better than the gluten-filled version!)

@Patrico1057 Try the cauliflower crust pizza from Costco. It’s delicious. I tried it for the first time last night. My husband, who isn’t on a bariatric lifestyle loved it.

The cauliflower pizza might be the second most popular thing that Costco is selling right now (here’s what’s taking the top spot).
