Cauliflower Pizza Crust FAQ
Cooking with cauliflower pizza crust can be simple and satisfying if done right. Its unique composition makes it a little tricky than regular wheat dough, hence causing a few common mistakes people make. Overloading the crust with toppings is one of them. Given its composition, it can't handle as much weight as traditional crust so it's important to go light on the toppings. The crust is more fragile and can get mushy if not pre-baked properly. Also, not squeezing out enough water from the cauliflower results in a less crispy crust. To get the most out of your cauliflower pizza crust, always remember to pre-bake it. Pre-baking the crust allows it to dry out and get a bit crispy before you add any toppings. Moreover, go easy on the sauce. A light layer will do, otherwise, the crust might get soggy. A little-known tip is to par-bake the crust without any toppings, allowing it to get nice and golden before adding sauce, cheese, and other toppings. Then return it to the oven to finish baking.

Tips for storing cauliflower pizza crust to extend shelf life
• Always store cauliflower pizza crust in the fridge, even when it's unopened. This will keep it fresh longer and prevent it from spoiling. Make sure it’s tightly sealed in its original packaging or in a zip-lock bag to avoid moisture. • Store-bought cauliflower pizza crust often comes vacuum-sealed. Once you’ve opened it, keep it in an airtight container or resealable bag to prevent it from drying out. • If you plan to freeze it, wrap it in a layer of plastic wrap and then a layer of foil to prevent freezer burn. It’s a good idea to cut it into individual portions before freezing, this way you only defrost what you need. • To defrost, leave it in the refrigerator overnight. Cook it directly from the fridge – don’t leave it out at room temperature, as this could give bacteria a chance to multiply.
