Last month I wrote about cauliflower based crusts and how they can be such a wonderful alternative to standard, or even gluten free crusts. With the evolution of pizza, and how we eat in general, every alternative is worth considering and trying out.
This time I didn’t have to search for a restaurant. There’s always the joy and simplicity of going to your local grocery store and discovering something new, along with always knowing where to find your familiar items and staples. Going back to when I was a kid, I always found it so peaceful and so blissful. I think I just said the same thing twice. But I hope you know what I mean.
There wasn’t this vast selection of healthy choices at any time in history until now. I don’t always acknowledge that fact, but I am grateful. I only heard about cauliflower based crusts a couple of years ago. And before last month had only had them via someone else’s creation. Cauliflower crusts to prepare at home are becoming more of a thing and easy to find.
Caulipower is exactly that. It’s got a lot of power to it. Right off the bat, I had a great feeling about their pizzas. I had such a feeling I bought three. The Three Cheese, the Marhgerita, and the Veggie are all wonderful. I can’t find any flaws to this, nor why should I? There was a good feeling leading up to this and these pizzas found me and I found them like magnets. We found each other.
What immediately stands out is well, everything. There’s a look about them and matches what a frozen pie would look like, which is a sign of things to come. Because 15 minutes later they came out of the oven looking magnificent. All I did was heat these but they just had this visual of a work of art. The folks behind this (their difference, their story, and where you can find their awesome pizzas) have put a lot of effort and dedication into making a masterpiece. Now that word, masterpiece, gets thrown around too much. A blank canvas or a crust encourages us to create our own, and sometimes beautiful things can happen. Their pies are a beautiful thing. At around $8 it’s more than worth spending a few extra dollars versus their counterparts.
The constant in all three pies is actually a number of things. First, this crust. Oh my goodness this is fantastic. I wouldn’t know the difference between their crust and a regular crust unless you hit me over the head with it. Don’t do that as that would be a waste of food, but you get what I’m saying. Under a blindfold test, I couldn’t tell the difference and I shouldn’t want to either. I should love for what it is, and there’s so much to love.
Then there’s the cheese. The way the respective cheese on these pizzas complement the other is a beautiful visual and is a joy to your palate and soul as well.
Garlic, extra virgin olive oil, and spices are important parts of each of their pizzas. Their the heart, their the soul, and their the glue in a lot of ways to make this pie that much more magical. While some pizzas have too much going on, and some items mean little to nothing, every means something here. And they mean so much.
I love these pizzas so much. Do I have a favorite? They’re all my favorite. They get my highest recommendation. Maybe it’s already a favorite to you, like it seems to be with many. This is some of the better pizza you’re going to find, and the crust is only part of the story. There’s a story within a story, and then some.
This is magic and this is art right here. I think I already called it art, but why the heck not. This deserves repeated praise.
Before we head into the season of indulgence (which can be any time of year to be honest) I’m glad that I’m able to share with you a lighter fare alternative to all the comforting foods that are out there. And while comfort is good, there’s comfort in the good.
This was spectacular.
Whatever I get to next may have a hard act to follow. Only time will tell..
Peace Be With You.
