Not long ago, I never imagined myself enjoying a pizza with a cauliflower crust, let alone one with zucchini on it.
I've tried cauliflower crusts before, ready-made, frozen pizza products, I even attempted to make my own from scratch. They were all OK for the most part, but they were never as good as a traditional crust and always had that cauliflower flavor to them. Not that that's a bad thing, but to me, it's not a flavor I want in my pizza.
It's been a while since I've tried another frozen pizza with a cauliflower crust, so I picked up a box of Kirkland Supreme Cauliflower Crust Pizza when shopping at Costco the other day.
Gluten-free, the two-pack box of pizzas comes topped with pepperoni, sausage, and roasted veggies including red, yellow, and green peppers, plus mushrooms, onions, the aforementioned zucchini, and a blend of Parmesan and Romano cheeses.
In preparing the pizza, the box instructions recommend putting the pizza directly on the center rack in a 425-degree oven. I put my little spin on things, using a perforated pizza pan sprayed with olive oil. In about 20 minutes, dinner was ready!
I love it when healthy tastes good! This pizza has all the qualities you're looking for in a good supreme pizza, nicely seasoned meats, a sauce with some zest, the roast on the veggies was spot on (even the zucchini!) and the cheese blend was well balanced. Putting this pizza over the top was that crust. It had that lightly crispy exterior and the fluffy, flaky interior bite and it had flavor - but NOT cauliflower! I was pleasantly surprised by the savory goodness of this crust, there's no clue that it's made from cauliflower in the bite.
Costing me $11.99 for two, 19.4-ounce pizzas, I'm giving Kirkland Supreme Cauliflower Crust Pizza 4 out of 5 Bachelor on the Cheap stars. The taste of the pizza is surprisingly good. The only knock I have is Kirkland is a bit sparse with the portions of pepperoni, sausage, and to a lesser extent cheese, but it's a very good-tasting 11-inch pie. The price is also reasonable at $5.99 per pizza, not bad and gluten-free. The best part, you can't tell it's a cauliflower crust. The Kirkland Supreme Cauliflower Crust Pizza is worthy of a repeat buy.
