Are you looking for a delicious low carb pizza crust alternative? This veggie pizza is made with a premade cauliflower pizza crust that is delicious and both crunchy and chewy and a perfect choice for a low carb pizza option.
While I have never been one to go on a diet, I do try to watch what I eat for the most part. Especially when we’re nearing the Holidays and I know I’ll be indulging a little more than normal.
I’m the type of person that as soon as I tell myself “I can’t eat carbs or sugar” I’ll crave it and eat more than I ever would before!
That’s why I’m totally on board with making small changes to my diet that can make big impacts. Small swaps and alternatives that when you add them up, make a big difference in calories and overall healthiness of a meal.
I try to eat more vegetables, which yes, is sometimes a struggle when you’re looking for easy, quick lunch and dinner ideas. But thankfully brands like Green Giant are making it SO much easier.
I often serve their frozen veggies to my family and hear resounding praise for the ones we’ve tried like the Organic Mashed Cauliflower and Organic Riced Cauliflower side dishes.
During my latest shopping trip at Walmart I found a new cauliflower product from Green Giant – the Cauliflower Pizza Crust. I immediately grabbed a box because I knew I wanted to try it for a healthy veggie pizza at lunch time!
While I love a good pepperoni pizza as much as anyone else, I decided since I was going healthier with the crust, I should go healthier with the toppings.
This low carb veggie pizza is SO easy to put together – a little ranch dressing, cheese, and your favorite fresh veggies all on top of the Green Giant Cauliflower Pizza Crust!
When you’re making the cauliflower pizza crust it’s important to read the instructions. Unlike traditional crusts where you might top and bake immediately, this one you actually bake before you add your toppings since it’s completely frozen.
The box does say you can put directly onto your oven rack but my crust broke a bit doing that so I’d definitely recommend using a baking sheet!
Once you’ve baked for about 15 minutes, it’s time to put your toppings on. Like I said, I’m making the swap from a traditional crust to this cauliflower pizza crust but I’m still using cheese. Little steps and swaps people – don’t be too hard on yourself!
The veggie pizza goes back into the oven for just about 5 minutes – just long enough for your cheese to bubble and turn a beautiful golden brown!
Now I know what you want to know… it looks like a beautiful low carb pizza, but how does it taste!? It is AMAZING! We really love all the cauliflower swaps already, but this cauliflower pizza crust might just be my absolute favorite.
I love the crispy edges or the pizza and under all the toppings the crust is just chewy enough to really make an incredible alternative for a traditional pizza crust.
While you can obviously make your own cauliflower pizza crust – well, I’ve seen recipes but who has time for that?! The NEW Green Giant Cauliflower Pizza Crust offers incredible convenience with no prep work. And as you know, I like recipes that are EASY and delicious.
If you’re looking for an alternative to starchier foods, you’ll love the new Green Giant Cauliflower Pizza Crust. It’s made with 80% cauliflower and has less calories and carbs than regular pizza dough. Be sure to grab a box [or 2] in the frozen veggie aisle at your local Walmart.
