Keto Friendly Food

Keto friendly pizza crust made of cauliflower


Pizza is my husband’s delight. In two weeks into our keto diet, he craved for pizza and when he was about to break his diet and ordered a pizza, finding a Keto friendly pizza became my next mission. We wish we looked for it sooner because what we discovered was worth the money and super keto friendly.

Not a big fan of cauliflower


When we began our keto journey, we learned that people substitute rice with cauliflower.  We first bought a huge bag of frozen cauliflower from Costco. We made kimchi fried rice with it believing kimchi and sauce will disguise the cauliflower‘s unique taste but we were wrong. It emphasized Cauliflower’s hard-to-describe exclusive flavor…. As a result, we did not finish the dish that night and agreed that we will never use cauliflower rice.

We gave a cauliflower pizza crust a shot


I was searching for low carb pizza crust for my husband after around thanksgiving time, and found Cali’flour Foods that makes low carb pizza crust. They had a bunch of awesome customer reviews, so I had to try and the Cyber Monday discount pushed me to click “buy”.

What we purchased was “Italian Lite & Plain Lite Combo” which included 2 plain thin crusts and 4 Italian thin crusts for $45 with the discount. They arrived frozen and I recommend you put them in the freezer as soon as you receive it.

Nutrition facts

Those cauliflower pizza crusts are made only with 3 ingredients – a whole head of cauliflower, egg writes, and mozzarella. No glutens!

Plain Lite and Italian Lite have the same nutrition facts so I’m not repeating it.

For 1/3 crust or 46g:

  • Calories 90
  • Total Fat 6g
  • Sodium 180mg
  • Total carbohydrate 2g
    • Dietary Fiber 1g
    • Total Sugars 1g
  • Protein 5g

This means each crust has a net carb of 3 grams. That is amazingly low!!!!

Easy recipes


This being our first time making own pizza, which made us nervous but the steps are super easy:

Ingredients for 3 crusts:

Toppings

  • Pepperoni (as much as you want)
  • 3 ounce of shredded Mozzarella cheese
  • 1/4 of sliced onion
  • Pepperonchini peppers (optional)

Sauce

  • one 6-ounce can of Tomato paste – 6-ounce can
  • 2 tablespoon of Italian seasoning
  • 1/2 tablespoon of minced garlic (or powder)
  • 1/4 tablespoon of ground black pepper

Steps

  1. Preheat oven to 375-400 degrees
  2. While preheating, mix toppings (Tomato paste, Italian seasoning, minced ground garlic, ground black pepper)
  3. Place frozen crust on vented pizza pan, pizza screen, or non-stick cookie sheet
  4. Bake crust 10-12 minutes. Let it cool for 10 minutes before topping.
  5. Spread the topping sauce generously and evenly
  6. Place Pepperoni, sliced onion and Mozzarella cheese. We added around10 sliced pieces of pepperonchinis on each crust to add a kick
  7. Bake the crust with toppings for 1-2 minutes in the oven or broiler
  8. Remove from oven and set for 3-4 min

Honest opinions


We were thrilled with the outcome. These pizzas never tasted like cauliflower. In fact, there was no funky cauliflower taste. If someone who doesn’t know cauliflower is the main ingredient will not guess it is. We were also happy how simple to cook it.

One thing to add as a side note is that Italian crust tasted the same as the Plain crust although the package says it has basil, garlic and Italian herbs. I guessed that was because our toppings were flavorful.

    Hello Stephanie,

    i’m a pizza lover as well. I had to stop consuming pizza because the local bakery doesn’t offer keto friendly pizzas. I really find this recipe interesting and I’ll be like to try it out. What can I use as a substitute for cauliflower if I don’t find them?

    Thanks for sharing this, warm regards

      Thank you so much for visiting my post. To substitute cauliflower, I’ve seen people using ground checking thighs in the crust but I’m not sure if that will have a texture similar to pizza. Maybe I will try it next.

      Please let me know your opinion about the cauliflower crust if you ever get to try it. I know you’ll be amazed because it tastes just like a regular thin crust. Enjoy!

    What a lovely invention,  I remember when I just started my my vegan diet journey, it was so difficult because I had to leave so certain food I love eating, like pizza and chicken breast. But I’m glad you came up with a brilliant post on cauliflower pizza crust, which is amazing low in carb solving my pizza crisis, I’m definitely going to try it out exactly how you did.

      Thank you for checking out my post. Please do let me how you like it when you try it. Another good thing about this crust is that it is freezable for up to 6 months so even if you bought too many of them, you can always store them in the freezer and use as needed. Enjoy the guilty free pizza!

    Great post and good info.

    To see that it only has 60 calories is shocking, normally it is almost ten times that much. 

    Now, I’m not a big fan of cauliflower, but I believe that you say that it doesn’t taste to it. 

    Im going to make this myself, and gonna let you know what I think about it. 

    Thanks a lot for sharing this with us!
