5 Unique Creations You Wouldn't Expect To Be Made With Keto-Friendly Pizza Crusts

Cauliflower pizza crusts are having a moment right now, with everyone from California Pizza Kitchen to Whole Foods carrying them. One of the more interesting varieties comes from Outer Aisle Gourmet, who makes a keto-friendly crust with cauliflower, eggs, and Parmesan.

When it comes to this ketogenic cauliflower pizza crust, it’s how customers are getting creative with the crusts that piques some serious interest.

On social media, folks have been sharing a unique spread of dishes they’ve constructed by taking the pizza crusts beyond their intended usage. Whether you’re into cauliflower crusts or not, these are all innovative ways to create around the otherwise basic pizza base.

Pancakes

Outer Aisle Gourmet’s crusts lend to a versatile flavor. That’s because the Parmesan inside can play into a sweet-salty combo with maple syrup that will resonate with fans of the flavor combination.

These taco shells are made with Outer Aisle Gourmet’s sandwich thins. So when you utilize it as the “tortilla” for a breakfast taco instead, you’re getting a low-carb, keto-friendly taco that’s big on flavor.

Nachos

Cutting the cauliflower pizza crust into “chips” to make your own nachos is a solid game-changing move. I’d go even a step further and use pizza-based toppings to bring the entire dish full circle.

Manicotti typically involves crepes or large pasta shells wrapped around a filling that’s smothered in tomato sauce and cheese before heading to the oven. These cauliflower crusts are pretty thin, so they can make for a ketogenic substitute to the standard crepe.

With the thin crusts acting as the “bread,” this Reuben may be more of a knife-and-fork job. That doesn’t make it any less delicious, however, and flatbread sandwich lovers will also be huge fans of this creation.

You don’t have to stick to standard pizza ingredients, though, like in this post. The beet cashew sauce is a striking contrast to the avocados and other fresh produce on top.

Pizza in and of itself can get super innovative with the toppings you put on. So whether you let the creative juices flow on the pie or make something new with the crusts, there’s a lot of groundbreaking recipes to develop in the world of pizza.

If you’re interested in playing around with Outer Aisle Gourmet’s pizza crusts and sandwich thins, you can find them in Whole Foods and various retailers nationwide or on the Outer Aisle Gourmet website.
