Review of Trader Joe's Frozen Cauliflower Pizza

One of my favorite things is to find a convenience food that's both healthy and easy to prepare. I also am totally loving all new veggie products that sub for starchy foods (like grains and potatoes). Which is why I loooove Trader Joe's new Frozen Cauliflower Pizza! 

Note: My boyfriend and I also tried the frozen cauliflower crust ONLY - and this was much easier & tastier to eat

Here are some pros & cons: 

PROS

  • Taste: tastes just like a regular frozen pizza - salty, but not too salty, just the right amount of sauce & cheese. You couldn't tell the crust was anything out of the ordinary

  • Price: $4.99 - this is pretty good comparable to other Trader Joe's pizzas - I also get the Ancient Grain pizza ($4.49)

  • Nutrition Facts: Decent, honestly more calories than I would like (760 for the whole pizza) - but this still saves you about 20% of the calories from other pizzas! (E.g. 930 calories for the Ancient Grain pizza). This pizza is also gluten-free for those who are gluten-averse.

  • Ease of Use: Very easy! Pre-heated the oven to 425 & baked on a Canola Oil sprayed pan for 12 minutes

  • Is it filling? YES! 3/4 of the pizza does the trick for me for a full meal. If you want it for 2 meals (probably preferable) - pair it with a side of veggies like baby carrots

 CONS

  • Nutrition Facts: Like I said, I would have preferred if it were lower calories. Also, there are a lot of other carbs/ starches in the crust besides cauliflower, which I know must be necessary from a food science standpoint, but I don't love it

OVERALL RECOMMENDATION: 4 stars!
