Pizza may have been off your list lately as you enjoy the health and slimming benefits of a low-carb lifestyle. But oooohh that melted cheese goodness as you bite into a warm, crisp slice is hard to resist!
Luckily, you have options: delicious and healthy pizza made with cauliflower crusts. Pizza crusts made from cauliflower and other low-carb ingredients are enjoying a heyday — you may have even seen a cauliflower pizza or two on your local grocer’s shelves and picked one up to try.
With a growing selection of cauliflower pizza crusts on the market today, how do you decide which to add to your shopping cart? Here’s our take on why Outer Aisle pizza crusts win the prize.
Comparison of Cauliflower Pizza Crust Brands
We compared Outer Aisle Cauliflower Pizza Crusts with cauliflower crusts from Cali’flour Foods, Caulipower, Trader Joe’s, and Green Giant. Here’s what we found.
Serving Size. Outer Aisle has the largest serving size of the four others we researched: one crust is 74g, and you can eat the whole crust and stay within one serving size. This means you can eat more to satisfy hunger and still come away with less carbs, fat, and other undesirable ingredients (like gluten!) found in some of the other crusts.
Net Carbs. Net carbs are total carbs minus fiber. Outer Aisle cauliflower pizza crusts have just 3g of net carbs per serving, a tiny fraction of four of its competitors.
Grain-Free. Unlike several of the others, Outer Aisle is totally grain-free. No cornstarch, tapioca, rice flour, or cornmeal. Not so for Caulipower, Trader Joe’s, or Green Giant, all of which contain some mixture of those high-carb ingredients.
Calories and Fat. Although Cali’flour Foods pizza crusts are similar to Outer Aisle's in terms of ingredients, the calories and fat are 50% higher in the Cali’flour crust, and that’s for a serving almost half the size of the Outer Aisle crust.

What About Oprah’s Cauliflower Pizza Crust?
You may have seen Oprah’s new product, Oh, That’s Good, which hit the shelves in August 2018. Made by Kraft, these five varieties of pizza are not crusts alone, but come with sauce, cheese, and toppings. These frozen—not fresh—pizzas are by no means low-carb; they’re made from grains and contain a lesser amount of actual cauliflower than Outer Aisle pizza crusts. Net carbs for the fire-roasted vegetable pizza is 36g, much of that coming from the white flour and sugar that are in the ingredients.

How to Bake Crisp Outer Aisle Pizza Crusts
Want a perfectly cooked pizza crust? Getting crispy, crunchy cauliflower pizza crusts is a breeze with these simple instructions:
- Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
- Place the pizzas on a wire rack and bake for 9-10 minutes.
Tip: Do not place our pizza crusts directly on the oven rack, our crusts are fresh, and sometimes the wide frame of oven racks can cause breakage in the crust. Use a tight mesh wire rack for best results (see picture above.) Enjoy!
- Take them out and let them sit for 2-3 minutes on the wire rack before serving to help them firm up further after baking.
- Enjoy with your favorite toppings.
