In 2018 we began seeing cauliflower pizza for the first time and to the surprise of many, it’s quite good.
Since then, we are seeing all kinds of food products made from cauliflower. Some of these include:
- Cauliflower rice
- Cauliflower crackers
- Cauliflower “bites”
- Cauliflower gnocchi
- Cauliflower baking mix and;
- Much more
In our eyes, the best tasting cauliflower based product is cauliflower pizza. You can get these at many restaurants and most grocery store frozen food aisles. One of our favorites is the Caulipower pizza.
There are six different types of pizza they offer and they have cauliflower pizza crust if you want to make your own pizza. The six different types are:
- Margherita Pizza
- Three Cheese Pizza
- Uncured Pepperoni Pizza
- Veggie Pizza
- Uncured Turkey Pepperoni Pizza
- Uncured Pepperoni and Vegetables Pizza
In this Caulipower pizza review, we will focus on the Caulipower Margherita Pizza. Overall, the taste of this one was much better than a few other brands including Quest, California Pizza Kitchen and Open Nature.

Caulipower Margherita Ingredients
According to the Caulipower website and the pizza in my fridge, the ingredients are as follows:
Cauliflower, Tomato Sauce (Tomatoes, Garlic, Oregano, Sea Salt), Mozzarella White Cheddar Cheese Blend (Pasteurized Part Skim Milk, Cheese Cultures, Salt, Enzymes), Brown Rice Flour, Corn Starch, Water, Tomatoes, Parmesan Cheese (Pasteurized Whole Milk, Cheese Cultures, Salt, Enzymes), Tapioca, Sunflower Oil, Extra Virgin Olive Oil, Sugar, Basil, Egg, Xanthan Gum, Yeast, Salt, Vinegar, Baking Powder (Sodium Acid Pyrophosphate, Sodium Bicarbonate, Corn Starch, Monocalcium Phosphate). CONTAINS: Milk, Eggs
Overall, this is a very strong and healthy ingredient list. There might be a few that you are unsure of, so we will list breakdowns of those below.
- Tapioca: Tapioca is a type of starch that comes from the cassava plant. This helps make the crust of this pizza and it’s a grain free ingredient. You’ve likely had this before if you eat different types of gluten free products.
- Xanthan Gum: Xanthan gum is a common food additive and its main use is to thicken and stabilize. We get xanthan gum when a bacteria (xanthomonas campestris) ferments sugar. The fermenting creates a gooey substance and is then made solid by adding alcohol. After that, it turns into a powder and boom, you have xanthan gum. Sounds weird, but you’ve likely been eating this additive for a very long time and there isn’t conclusive evidence it’s bad for our health.
Caulipower Pizza Pricing
Caulipower pizza pricing will vary by location. If you are interested in buying your pizza online instead of in stores, that is certainly possible.
Our Caulipower Pizza Review | Is it Healthy?
Overall, this is one of the better frozen pizzas you can buy. Caulipower is not using any unnecessary preservatives and it’s on the lower end of calories when you compare to other brands.
We will say this is definitely one of the healthier frozen pizzas you can buy, but it’s hard to call pizza healthy. This pizza, just like all others, is something you should eat once in awhile. Eating pizza everyday probably won’t lead you to a healthy lifestyle.
Also, when you’re looking for different packaged products to buy at the store, look for ingredient labels that are concise and free of ingredients people cannot pronounce. When an ingredient starts to get long, you are probably eating a highly processed food.
Caulipower Pizza is Not Grain Free
Caulipower pizza may be a good gluten free option, but it is not grain free. This is due to the brown rice flour and corn starch. These two ingredients probably are what helps make this pizza taste better when comparing it to other brands.
This isn’t bad, it just makes us wonder how much cauliflower is actually in this pizza.
Which Caulipower Pizza is the Best?
While all their pizzas are good, we think the Margherita is the best. The pepperoni and turkey pepperoni come next in our book. These seem to pack a bit more flavor than the others.
We haven’t tried the veggie, or the pepperoni and veggie, so we’ll have to update this once we do.
- Preheat oven to 425 degrees
- Keep pizza frozen until oven is ready
- Bake for 13-15 minutes
