Cauliflower is  generating quite the buzz lately in local supermarkets, healthy food blogs and with dietitians everywhere. The latest in cauliflower-based foods – cauliflower pizza crust. But, is it healthier to eat than traditional pizza crust?  I decided to put it to the test and researched the different brands out there to see if they’re a healthier choice than flour pizza crust.

Should you choose cauliflower crust to satisfy your next pizza craving?  The answer is yes if you’re looking to cut calories and carbohydrates, however not all cauliflower crusts are created equal.  Cauliplower crust for example, provides double the calories and more than 25 grams of carbohydrate, which is comparable to whole wheat crusts.  Your best choice is Cal’iflour which has the fewest calories and carbohydrates as well as the most protein. Trader Joe’s is another great options to choose for lower calories and carbohydrates.  Be on the lookout for Green Giant’s cauliflower pizza crust, which will also serve as a healthier alternative with only 85 calories and one gram of fat arriving this fall.

If you feel like testing out your culinary skills, you can make your own cauliflower crust. Check out this recipe from AllRecipes which has less than five grams of carbohydrates
