Our Caulipower review in Canada: We try Caulipower cauliflower pizza: Here’s what we thought.
I love pizza. Like, really, really LOVE pizza.
There’s nothing better than an ooey, gooey, cheesy slice of pie. The problem is that traditional pizza is pretty high in calories, fat and, well, just not that great for you.
Caulipower Review Canada for Cauliflower Pizza Crust
One option is to heat up the oven, use a food processor to grind cauliflower, and make a tasty cauliflower pizza from scratch. Sure, it’s honestly pretty delicious, and healthy, but that takes a lot of time. A lot of time.

I grabbed a CAULIPOWER Three Cheese Pizza on my last trip to the freezer isle at my local Walmart.
I liked it enouth that my next trip to my local Real Canadian Superstore, I grabbed a Caulipower Margherita Pizza to try.
First impressions of Caulipower
I was a little skeptical this would taste just like cauliflower, but that’s not the case.
Caulipower is much more like a traditional pizza crust than I’d imagined. In fact, if someone didn’t tell me it was made with cauliflower as the first ingredient, I might not know.
The number one ingredient in Caulipower pizzas is cauliflower.
The first bites of the pizza were pretty good, honestly. The crust was a bit crispy on the bottom, and the sauce and tomato toppings were pretty good for a frozen pizza.
It tasted great up until I’d scarfed down my first piece.
I found that Caulipower left a heavier feel in my stomach than regular pizza. Honestly, I didn’t love that.
I’m not sure how to describe it, but it felt a bit like a lump in my stomach.
I held off, and made the second pizza a couple of days later, just in case I was having a one off reaction.
Again, the first impression was pretty good. The toppings are fairly light, but the cheese was good for a frozen pizza.
The first bite was good, though I noticed that the pizza crust tasted quite a bit heavier than traditional pizza crust. Again, after eating my first slice (more slowly this time), I felt that uncomfortable heaviness in my stomach.
My husband felt the same thing.
Would I buy Caulipower again?
I’d buy Caulipower again if I needed a gluten free option.
Otherwise, I’d just buy a thin crust regular pizza, made with wholesome ingredients, to cut back on calories.
Caulipower Review: Toppings, crust and sauce
Toppings: Could use more toppings, but quality was good.
Sauce: Again, I thought the pizza could use more sauce, but the quality was decent.
Crust flavor: Average.
Crust texture: much more dense than regular pizza crust.
Crust crispness: Good. It browned nicely on the bottom, with a nice, moderate crispy texture.
Greasy? No, not at all. The crust is more like a thick flatbread than anything else, but not at all greasy. Toppings and cheese aren’t greasy, either.
