Today we’re comparing Real Good Foods Superfood Crust to two other cauliflower crusts on the market for review; the Cali'flour Foods Crust and Caulipower Foods Crust. These two cauliflower crusts were found at our local grocery store.
Starting out on the review of these three different crusts we're going to look at their nutrition information. Then we'll pop all three of them in the oven and do a taste test for you.
All of these pizzas are gluten-free options. Real Good Foods Superfood Pizza crust has the highest amount of protein compared to all of these. I've been working on increasing my protein lately, so this is great!
If you find yourself struggling with hunger throughout the day, and your protein is fairly low, then increasing it can really help. I’m not a huge fan of meat, so I love finding different ways to get more protein in my diet.
Now onto nutrition for the first crust!
Real Good Foods
Let's start with Real Good Foods which has three different pizza crusts out right now, but the one we are focusing on as part of this review is the Superfood crust.
Real Good Foods Superfood Pizza Crust is gluten-free, low in net carbs, and great for low-carb dieters. It’s made with broccoli, cheese, rice flour, sorghum flour, egg, almond flour, avocado, kale, and peas. Truly, it’s loaded down with superfoods making me feel great about my teens enjoying this as well.
Now, you probably noticed a few grains on the list. Grains aren’t technically “keto” supporting foods. But, the carbohydrates are low enough that if you aren’t strict keto this could fit great into a more flexible keto diet. Usually, this is called a "low-carb" diet instead of "keto".
If you want a 100% grain-free pizza crust, look to Real Good Foods Chicken Pizza or Real Good Foods Cauliflower Crust Pizzas. We’ll be doing a review comparing all three of the low carb pizza crusts soon, so stay tuned for that!
Real Good Foods Superfood Crust Pizza Flavor Options:
Real Good Foods has four different pizza options right now… and they actually sell a 2-pack of the crust only. We first made our own pizzas using this crust.
- White Truffle & Mushroom
- Crust Only (2 pack)
The serving size on all of the Real Good Foods Superfood Crust Pizzas is a generous half of a pizza. However, I’m totally satisfied with just a quarter of a pizza so for me, this drops all the nutrition information below in half immediately. I like to pair my quarter pizza with a salad of leafy greens, shaved almonds, avocado drizzled with MCT oil, salt, and pepper.
Half of a Real Good Foods pizza is 270 calories which is awesome, fat 14 g, 380 mg sodium, total carbs 17 g (3 g fiber), 14 net carbs, 16 g protein. Some of the ingredients are broccoli, cheese, rice, and sorghum flour. Following strict keto, this may not be your favorite but on a low-carb diet, this would work well.
It also contains egg, almond flour, avocado, kale, and peas. So many veggies are in this margarita pizza crust. Sometimes it's hard for picky kids to eat veggies, but this is a sneaky way to do get some in!
Nutrition facts vary across different pizza types. The white truffle is very similar to this one. Pepperoni has a few more calories which are expected because there's meat. But the crust only for the same serving size is 150 cal, 7 g fat, 8 g protein, and 11 net carbs.
Here are the basic nutrition facts as of today for all of Real Good Foods Superfood Crust Pizzas:
270 Calorires, 14 g Fat, 16 g Protein, 14 g Net Carb
270 Calories, 15 g Fat, 18 g Protein, 15 g Net Carb
Pepperoni (uses uncured pepperoni):
340 Calories, 20 g Fat, 19 g Protein, 16 g Net Carbs
Crust Only Option:
150 Calories, 7 g Fat, 8 g Protein, 11 g Net Carb
Real Good Foods Superfood Crust has a 15 min cooking time, a nice crispy edge, and holds its shape well. So the texture’s on point. It's got a really good overall combined flavor... tastes like a margarita pizza you’d get at your favorite local pub.
I really like that this crust really holds up. I like a pizza that you can pick up to eat and it'll hold its shape while you're enjoying it. Didn't have to twist our arm to try this one!
Now lets talk about some of the competitors, starting with a cauliflower crust called Caulipower.
In our free FaceBook support group, we have a lot of followers that post this next competing cauliflower crust... a lot.
Cali'flour Foods Crust
I looked at the nutrition facts and wow… now I understand why so many people are thrown off by eating this! But still is a popular brand that a lot of people buy.
The serving size is the same - half of one pizza. The Cali'flour Foods Crust has 340 calories, 12 g fat, 520 g sodium, and 49 g total carb, of which only 3 g are fiber. That's truly a LOT of carbs to consume… way over where you’d want to be eating either on keto or on a low-carb diet.
Ingredients are found on the side of the box. It's important to know that the list of ingredients will always be in the order of quantity with the first one making up the most.
There's cauliflower, brown rice flour, rice flour, water, corn starch, tapioca starch, sunflower oil, egg, oil, sugar, baking powder, xanthan gum, yeast, sauce, tomatoes, cheese, parmesan, and basil.
So where are those carbs coming from? Within the first three ingredients… two of those listed are a type of carbohydrate.
Now, this pizza is a better option than a normal pizza out there, but its not super keto-friendly unless you have a really small slice. Our teens will get to finish off this one cause we don’t want to eat that many carbs.
Cali'flour Foods cauliflower crust has a 10 min cooking time. This is the thinnest and softest in the texture of the three. We had to leave this one on the baking sheet because it's so delicate we couldn't get it off when it first came out of the oven. It looks like after it’s cooled about 5 min it is firming up better.
The slice of pizza itself is limp when holding it. There's a weird flavor to this one too… almost alcohol-like in taste, or maybe more of a yeast flavor. I'm not real sure how to describe the odd flavor we're tasting. Its like the crust was made with a beer batter. Looking at the ingredient list again, I'm not really sure where the taste is coming from. Maybe from the basil and egg whites? Neither of us are a fan of this flavor.
Now onto the third and final pizza crust review.
Caulipower Foods Crust
This final brand is the Caulipower Foods Cauliflower Crust.
This one has a lot fewer ingredients and also has a lot fewer net carbs. This is actually the lowest carb opton of all three of these pizza crusts!
With cauliflower, mozzarella cheese, egg white, garlic, basil, and then toppings consisting of sauce, basil, spices, tomatoes and things like that... this is a pretty basic or normal in their pizza toppings.
It's got 8 g net carbs, 250 calories in a half pizza which is still the serving size. 16 g fat, 8 g total carbs, 18 g of protein. So the overall fat to protein ratio is pretty big on this pizza. We have had this one before.
Caulipower Foods Crust have a 15 min cooking time. This seems to be a more dense pizza, but it's also limp to hold. This one is chewy tastes like a traditional frozen pizza. It's not bad, the crust just lacks some depth in flavor… Wouldn’t choose this one.
And the winner of the keto pizza crust challenge is.....
REAL GOOD FOODS SUPERFOOD CRUST!!
The smell, texture, ingredients, and taste all really came together for this to be our favorite. Although it wasn't the lowest carb count of the three (it took second), we were looking for that authentic pizza experience to guide our decision.
This one won't feel like you're sacrificing or like it's "diet" food. Real Good Foods Superfood Crust Pizza will make staying on keto and having your favorite foods EASY. Clear win on this one for us!
