Don’t ask me why but recently I’ve been trying to cut out gluten and dairy in my diet. I’ve always been curious about cauliflower crust pizza and how awful it tastes so I decided to pick up the two-pack of Molinaro’s Cauliflower Crust Pizza kit from Costco. If you haven’t already read my review for the Molinaro’s Pizza Kit you can check it out here.

Taste

Surprisingly this actually didn’t taste that bad! It actually resembled regular pizza and didn’t have a strong cauliflower flavor. The crust isn’t very thick and doesn’t get as crispy as regular pizza crust and it is a little bland tasting (not completely cardboard tasting though). I’m pretty sure the toppings and sauce mask any cauliflower flavor. I also noticed that the crust has cheese in the ingredients list, so it’s not dairy free which gives the crust a mild cheesy flavor that I think also hides the cauliflower. Overall this was pretty good and I’d be happy to have it again.

Cost

I paid $11.49 Canadian for the two-pack Molinaro’s Cauliflower Pizza Kit from Costco.

Convenience

The kit comes with two cauliflower pizza crusts, two tomato sauces and a freezer bag if you want to open the kit and not use one crust. You can choose your own toppings and create your own pizza to pop in the oven at home which I love. The best before date is about 3 months from the date we purchased the kit.

Nutrition

1/4 of the crust is 130 calories, three grams of fat, 23 grams of carbohydrates, one gram of fibre, two grams of sugar and 370 mg of sodium. The ingredients list is posted in the photo above.

I’ll definitely use up my second cauliflower pizza crust. I love creating my own pizza at home. I’d love to try a dairy free cauliflower pizza crust in the future!

  1. We have been buying these kits for over a year and have enjoyed them. One we had in our pantry from late May has turned green , though and is ruined..it hasn’t been opened and the best before date is August 22/ 22. So, we will return this to Costco for a replacement.
    Have not had a problem before, and it’s odd that this sealed pizza crust went bad.

  2. We have purchased these twice now, and for a “fast/healthy-esque” lunch dinner side, I think these are good. To purchase a cauliflower pizza at our local pizza place, each pizza is 25$ for the same size, although crispy and no mess at home. The flavor is non existent which we like, it’s basically a vehicle for cheese and desire toppings with less carbs. We try to eat as close to Keto as we can. We are not die hards!

  3. Yaaaa – no. I will not be buying these. Seed oils (canola oil, in this case) are HIGHLY processed and are not food. I know it’s cheap and considered “stable”, but consuming it is a health risk. I’ll pass thanks. I’ll make my own crust out of shredded cauliflower, cheese and egg or just meat, whenever I desire pizza.

  5. Very disappointed. I purchased the kit at Costco in Kelowna Oct 30/21 and immediately put it in the freezer as I knew i wouldn’t be eating right away. The best before date was March 5, 2022. Took the kit out to defrost for dinner tonight and 2” round green mold on both of them!!! So disappointed! Definitely lost my appetite and out the cost of the crusts.

  6. Well it all seems ok yet it has Canola oil which isn’t Healthy at all… I wish Costco would have a Healtier alternative for ppl w gluten sensitivies …

      • Look into how canola oil is extracted. They use a chemical process to extract the oil. Completely disgusting. Besides being highly processed, canola oil is very inflammatory in the body. Very far from healthy! I recommend that all my clients stay FAR away!
