Even if you aren’t currently counting Weight Watchers points or watching what you eat, you’ll love this pizza.

Using my Baked Turkey Meatballs that you’ve ideally made ahead of time (meal prep, trust me, they are worth it because you can enjoy them in so many different meals), this pizza will take you NO TIME to whip up.

My Favorite Cauliflower Pizza Crust

I’ve tried several and so far, I still love the Trader Joe’s Cauliflower Pizza Crust the best out of any others. It stays together, bakes up well and doesn’t have a bunch of crap in it that add on calories, fat or other nasties you don’t need in your diet.

Yes, I have also tried the Trader Joe’s butternut squash and broccoli crusts, but you really have to be making something that will blend nicely with those flavors because they are much more prominent than the cauliflower.

The key to making this crust crispy is to pre-bake it before you add on any toppings. The box calls for 10-12 min per side and honestly, I’ve had great luck with 10 minutes per side. Also, you don’t want to load down this crust with a bunch of toppings because it won’t get crispy AT ALL. Usually I have the best luck with the Trader Joe’s Vegan, Kale, Cashew Basil Pesto as the base layer as I think tomato sauce just has more liquid in it that tends to make the crust have a harder time getting crisped up.

I N G R E D I E N T S //
 1 Trader Joe's Cauliflower Crust
 7 Baked Turkey Meatballs
 2 tbsp Trader Joe's Vegan Kale, Cashew & Basil Pesto
 1 cup Light Shredded Mozzarella Cheese
 ¼ cup red onion, sauteed
 ¼ cup fresh basil

The key to a great pizza using these Trader Joe's Cauliflower Crusts is to pre-bake them so they get extra crispy.

Be sure to bake the crust on one side for 10 minutes and then flip over and bake for another 10 minutes. Then you'll be ready to add your toppings!

3

First, you'll need to sautee the red onion. I do this because the pizza doesn't cook very long and this will help the onion to be cooked once the pizza is done.

Next, to create your pizza once you have pre-baked the crust, spoon on the pesto sauce (or you can use marinara if you would rather), then sprinkle on the sauteed onions and fresh basil. Then you'll cut the meatballs in half and place them evenly around the pizza. Sprinkle with the mozzarella cheese and then pop in the oven to bake for 15 minutes.
