Merging the convenience of frozen food with healthy ingredients, the best frozen cauliflower pizzas have emerged as an alternative for those looking for lower-carb or gluten-free options. With a spectrum of choices from top-tier brands like CAULIPOWER to signature selections from retailers like Trader Joe’s, the market is brimming with choices, making it easier to indulge in a guilt-free pizza night. Which cauliflower-centric pizzas reign supreme in taste? We’ve sifted through the options, sparing you the guesswork.

Our parents may have been on to something when they told us to eat our vegetables. According to researchers at Edith Cowan University in Australia, eating more cruciferous vegetables like cauliflower could be the key to better blood vessel health. Results of the study show that women who eat more than 45 grams of cruciferous veggies each day — equal to about ¼ cup of steamed cauliflower are 46 percent less likely to have calcium build-up in their aorta.

The beauty of these frozen cauliflower-based pizzas is not just in their innovative crust but also in the vast array of toppings. From tangy BBQ chicken to classic margherita, the versatility of cauliflower crusts seamlessly melds with every topping, creating a harmonious bite every time. Whether you’re trying this type of pizza for the first time or an expert, the ever-expanding frozen aisle promises a cauliflower pizza experience that will satiate and surprise.

We’ve done the research, crunched the numbers, and have the list of the best cauliflower pizzas you’ll find at your local grocery store. Did we leave your favorite off the list?  Let us know in the comments below.

The List: Best Frozen Cauliflower Pizzas, Per Taste Testers

1. 365 Cauliflower Crust Cheese Pizza

This pizza, found only in Whole Foods “crusted the competition,” according to Recipe Marker. “This crust was regarded by many food lovers as being the most similar to a wheat crust and had a cheesy, herbed flavor rather than a cauliflower flavor.”

My Frozen Picks writes, “It’s one of the best frozen cauliflower pizzas on the market, and it comes with a cheese crust that will satisfy your cravings.”

“It was delicious, and I loved how nice and crunchy the crust was,” says Brooklyn Craft Pizza. “Furthermore, this cheese cauliflower crust pizza wasn’t overly greasy, making it easy to eat.”

2. CAULIPOWER Margherita Pizza

This is one of CAULIPOWER’s most popular pizzas and Tasting Table says it didn’t disappoint. “This pizza serves up a generous amount of mozzarella and parmesan cheese on top of a crispy stone-fired cauliflower crust.  Perfecting a delicious, crispy crust can be challenging — let alone one that’s gluten-free. The company has managed to provide restaurant-level crispiness straight from your freezer. While delicious, we will warn you this pizza is not as filling as its thicker-crusted, gluten-filled counterparts.”

“I liked that it didn’t taste like a frozen pizza, but more like one that I would have made at home,” writes the editor of My Frozen Picks. “CAULIPOWER’s Margherita pizza has a delicate and simple flavor that is perfect for those who want their food to be light yet filling.”

Julia’s Cafe Bakery adds, “Many consider CAULIPOWER’s cauliflower pizza to be plain, but that cannot be further from the truth, as though it may be classic-flavored, plain is definitely not the word to describe it. CAULIPOWER also offers a variety of pizza toppings, including vegetable toppings, pepperoni, and three kinds of cheese.

3. Open Nature Gluten-Free Cauliflower Crust Three Cheese Pizza

“Out of all supermarket frozen cauliflower pizzas, the Open Nature’s Three Cheese Cauliflower Crust Pizza is the definite winner,” exclaims All Pizzaholic. “The crust is a mixture of rice and cauliflower dough, topped with tomato sauce, and a blend of mozzarella, parmesan, and romano cheese. In my eyes, nothing can beat its amazing nutritional values and the taste that is to die for.

The crust on this pizza is made with rice flour and cauliflower. Recipe Marker says, “The product has excellent nutritional content, is created with premium ingredients, and is delicious as can be.”

Sporked writes, “If you like Domino’s thin crust pizza, you’ll like Open Nature Gluten-Free Cauliflower Crust Three Cheese Pizza. It’s very crackery in a way that I enjoyed. My favorite aspect is that there are herbs baked into the crust. Those little flecks make it feel fancy! Plus, this pizza has some of the best melty cheese out of any of the cauliflower crust pizzas we tried. A very solid option!”

4. Kirkland Signature Supreme Cauliflower Crust Pizza

“Not only is this a great cauliflower-crust pizza, but it is also a great pizza — period,” states The Kitchn. “The thin cauliflower-based crust on this Kirkland pizza browned perfectly and didn’t bend under the weight of the pepperoni, sausage, and roasted vegetable toppings. When I served this pizza for dinner, even my two discerning elementary-aged kids didn’t suspect that the crust was made from cauliflower.”

Bachelor on the Cheap loved this pizza. “This pizza has all the qualities you’re looking for in a good supreme pizza, nicely seasoned meats, a sauce with some zest, the roast on the veggies was spot on (even the zucchini!) and the cheese blend was well balanced.  Putting this pizza over the top was that crust.  It had that lightly crispy exterior and the fluffy, flaky interior bite and it had flavor – but NOT cauliflower! I was pleasantly surprised by the savory goodness of this crust, there’s no clue that it’s made from cauliflower in the bite.”

According to Eat This, Not That!, one Reddit user wrote, “This pizza is the only frozen pizza I’ll eat anymore! I would have never thought, but they are delicious!” Another one added, “This pizza is the bomb. This is how alternative ingredients should be done. When I want a cauliflower crust over a traditional crust, you’ve done a great job.”

5. Trader Joe’s Gluten Free Cheese Pizza with a Cauliflower Crust

“The crust had a ton of rosemary and was very fragrant,” adds Sporked. “And while it tasted good, it didn’t really feel like a pizza. It seemed more like a flatbread you would serve alongside other appetizers. So if you’re looking for something that reads classier than pizza but has the same flavor profile, this is for you!”

Tasting Table writes, “The Trader Joe’s Gluten-Free Cheese Pizza with cauliflower crust is one of our all-time favorites in the gluten-free department. This is one of those frozen pizzas you always want to have on hand. It’s perfect for eating before a night out, splitting with friends as an appetizer, or even eating cold as delicious leftovers. This pizza is excellent alone, or you can add your favorite toppings like pepperoni, sausage, or veggies; and gets nice and crispy after only 20 minutes in the oven.”

“What I absolutely adore about Trader Joe’s cauliflower pizza is that you can tailor it according to your taste and enrich it any way you want,” according to Julia’s Bakery Cafe.

6. Milton’s Thin And Crispy Cauliflower Crust Pizza

“This frozen pizza is made with a cauliflower crust that actually tastes good,” registered Dietician Lauren Manaker tells Eat This, Not That! “Cooking it results in a perfectly crispy pizza and it is made with quality ingredients. Totally gluten-free and packed with nutrients, this pizza is always in my Costco cart when I make a run to the superstore.”

Sporked raves, “The crust is crunchy, the cheese is melty, and the sauce is flavorful.”

Gluten-Free Pizza Pies writes, “Milton’s roasted veggie pizza came from the most unexpected corner to be one of the best tasting premade gluten-free pizzas made on a cauliflower crust.”

7. CPK Uncured Pepperoni, Mushroom & Sausage Cauliflower Crust Pizza

“CPK needs to stick with alternative crusts,” writes Sporked. “The croissant crust is incredible, but the cauliflower crust is the best. It is such a good frozen pizza crust! This would win for crust alone, but luckily the toppings are delish, too. The pepperoni gets crispy, the sausage is meaty, and the mushrooms are nice and juicy. This pizza is a dream come true.”

“This particular frozen pizza gets high marks for taste and texture,” according to My Frozen Picks. “It doesn’t have that frozen pizza taste or texture, and the toppings are nicely balanced. I liked that the crust was sturdy and didn’t get soggy. It had a nice, chewy texture that reminded me of traditional pizza crust.”

“We found this pizza packed with flavor; every slice left our taste buds wanting more,” says Brooklyn Craft Pizza.
