I don't know about the Trader Joe's version, but CPK's in-restaurant cauliflower is pretty damn amazing. I wouldn't choose it over a bread crust, but that's really only because I love bread.



It is what it is.

you be surprised how versatile cauliflower is. i like it for pizza. use it often instead of rice and just last week discovered cauliflower stalks which were crunchy like cheese doodles but with less fat and no orange fingers.

Did you notice that BOTH are listed as "Gluten Free"?

Free,

I don't get the post. These are options for people who can't tolerate gluten. Also options for diabetics who shouldn't eat regular pizza. Can't say I'm a fan of either but, as a diabetic, I've eaten them many times because regular pizza is a _very_ rare treat for me.

We mix some cauliflower with potatoes then mash them. Not bad...



Sometimes I feel like this-

According to the Everlywell tests we did (plenty of controversy there), neither of us have a gluten sensitivity. But we do prefer these weirdo non-wheat crusts, just for taste and digestibility. Haven't tried the broc, but as others have noted, the cauli is quite good.

Have tried several brands of cauli-pizza and crusts. Some are excellent. Some are awful.

Caulipower makes decent frozen cauli-crust pizza, but for the last year or so they've skimped on the cheese and sauce. Newman's seems to be made in the same factory as Caulipower, but has the sauce and cheese covered and often costs a buck less.

My theory is that a lot of the digestive issues surrounding bread stem from the dough conditioners and amount of yeast used. If one were to make a poolish or natural starter, I'm betting that most of those problems disappear.

I like the frozen cauliflower crust pizzas from Costco, maybe not as much as their counter service pizza, but it's got to be healthier at least.

I like Caulifower in things. My family, not so much. I was threatened the last time I put too much cauliflower in a soup.

I ordered a burrito bowl from Chipotle this past week, and they now offer cilantro-lime cauliflower "rice" along with the usual white or brown. It tasted fine (if you like cauliflower, which I do), though not at all like real rice. Fewer calories (40 cal vs. >200), but more money ($2 extra).

A-Polly,

As I said in a previous thread:

I had a chance to sample the riced cauliflower offered by Chipotle. I texted a few friends about it. My exact words:

"Chipotle claims this is riced cauliflower. Claims is the operative word. Took a taste and gagged. To say it is disgusting is a compliment. I don’t recommend it. Even a ravenous, starving, creeping stomach would run away from it in horror and I bet the stuff would chase it down and kill it."

Obviously, your mileage might vary with Chipotle's equivalent of solid ipecac syrup or colonoscopy preparation mix. 'course, that depends on how quickly you can run to the garbage or the toilet after tasting it.

that and modern American wheat which was subjected to torture in the 50s' aka hybridization to produce more with less disease.
A good idea on the surface.

Many people what have a problem with US wheat find no issue with European wheat. YMMD, but the poolish can help to alleviate some of those gut issue with American wheat.

I use Italian 00 flour when I make pizza. Still not as good as home ground, but a vast improvement over even the best AP.

There is a chromosomal difference between US wheat and einkorn, farro and the like from EU.

Be grateful for the options you have. I don't have a Trader Joe's within easy reach in my neighborhood, so I'm always envious of those of you who do. (Unfortunately, the only similar type chain we have here is Whole Foods, or Whole Paycheck, as we call it...)

I happen to love both cauliflower and broccoli, so I'd be tempted to try each of those, though I have to admit that the idea of using broccoli for a crust just seems... wrong somehow. OTOH, there've been a number of times with food items that I would have thought they'd turn my stomach, where they turned out to be surprisingly good.

Ha ha, obviously I missed your previous thread. I don't know if my Chipotle cauliflower "rice" was that much better than yours; I mostly think that any repellent qualities were diminished considerably by proximity to the sofritas and beans and salsa and other more flavorful things piled on top.

The few bites I had of the "rice" on its own didn't strike me as disgusting or bad, just not something I would consider ordering by itself. It wasn't highly seasoned, but that makes sense considering all the other stuff added to my bowl. I would have liked it better with a little more texture (as with roasted cauliflower), and I missed the nice "chew" that one gets with brown rice.
