Doesn’t even taste like cauliflower!

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.
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.
I paid $11.49 Canadian for the two-pack Molinaro’s Cauliflower Pizza Kit from Costco.
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.
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!
Have you tried cauliflower pizza crust? What did you think?

I need help with a product like the cauliflower pizza listed here. With two label for nutritional value I have no idea which is accurate? One shows about 22 grams of carbohydrates and to the right the label states 2 grams. Why is this listed this way? Can anyone help me discern? I would love to try this pizza? Thx
One is for the sauce in the package
Because one is CRUST one is SAUCE ???
I cannot find it in Calgary@ Costco? I tried it once and was suprised how well it tasted!
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.
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!
Yes! Gluten-free or cauliflower pizza is so expensive at pizza places.
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.
I bet your homemade crust tastes amazing!
Well I wouldn’t buy this product It is cheap as will be on sale at Costo from April4th on I dont agree with the canola oil and the starches added What about the amount of sodium? No Thank you … i think that it wont be cheaper to buy the raw vegetables and make it but iam
Sure is going to be healthier
We LOVE these! I use my own hime made sugar free sauce and low fat mozzarella.
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.
I freeze mine all the time to use later and have never had that problem.. we love these crusts and are the only ones we buy.
These are good kits, load em up and enjoy.
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 …
Totally agree! I actually wish a lot more companies would start using EVO or avocado oil instead of canola oil or palm oil all the time.
canola oil not healthy? canola oil is an unsaturated, not saturated vegetable oil.
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!
I recently bought this trying to cut down on sugar and carbs and it was great!!!! Will definitely buy again
It’s pretty high carbs still …100 carbs just for the crust and sauce alone
