Disclosure: I received free product in exchange for hosting an instagram giveaway with Real Good Foods. All thoughts & opinions are my own.
Real Good Foods sent me a couple of their new Cauliflower Crust Pizzas to try, since I’d reviewed their chicken crust pizzas in the past. I’m not a keto or macro person, but if you are, these are really good. One serving is 1/4 of the pizza and only has 9g carbs, 16g fat, and 17g protein. All good & healthy, but it comes with a hefty dose of 700mg sodium that unfortunately, you can taste. On the bright side, for people with food sensitivities, the pizzas are gluten and grain free.
I followed the instructions and baked the pizza in my oven at 400F for 16ish minutes, until the cheese started to really brown at the edges. While the toppings were done cooking, the cauliflower crust was still pretty floppy. When cauliflower pizza crusts are too floppy, it usually means their consistency is too mushy, which is no bueno. To solve this problem, I cooked the pizza in a skillet on my stove on low heat for a few minutes until the cauliflower crust was crispier.
Real Good Foods’ cauliflower crust is made up of cheese, almond flower, egg, coconut flower, & a few other ingredients and seasonings. It tasted good overall, although it was a little too salty. I didn’t feel like I was eating cauliflower. However, the crust wasn’t close enough to the texture of real pizza crust to make the pizza genuinely enjoyable for me to eat.
To be fair, I’m really not a cauliflower crust fan in general, and I do genuinely love the Real Good Foods chicken crust pizzas. I have a hunch that if you don’t love other cauliflower crusts, you probably won’t like this one either.
What do you guys think? Does anybody actually prefer cauliflower crust pizza over real pizza?
