I’ve been (mostly) living a gluten free, paleo-type diet for years now, and I will never look back. Yes; bread is delicious, but wheat wreaks havoc on people at risk for diabetes and tend to store fat in their abdomen. But that doesn’t mean that I don’t miss the occasional quick-to-make sandwich or pizza. While the flute-free and paleo market has made some strides in offering different options, but rice flour or other options can create the kinds of blood sugar spikes I try to avoid. But dammit, I still want a sandwich. And some pizza.
So imagine my delight when I saw wraps made of cauliflower in the tofu section at my local specialty market.
“A delicious bread substitute made with fresh cauliflower, parmesan cheese, clean label cottage cheese, egg whites and sunflower lecithin. Naturally gluten free, low carb, low calorie, no flour, no nuts and no soy. No artificial ingredients. 1 serving of vegetables in each piece. Simply delicious!”
“Delicious pizza crust made from fresh cauliflower, parmesan cheese, clean label cottage cheese, eggs, basil, oregano, garlic and sunflower lecithin. Naturally gluten-free, low carb, low calorie, no flour, no nuts and no soy. No artificial ingredients. 2 servings of vegetables in each piece. Naturally delicious!”
I made a pizza today with the pizza crust, and it was absolutely delicious. I followed the directions, using the toaster over and putting the crust directly on the rack so it would crisp. It came apart somewhat, and it wasn’t perfect, but it was totally enjoyable. The funny thing, it doesn’t even taste like cauliflower. It kind of tastes what it’s supposed to imitate–bread.
The crust was a little over browned because I forgot I was cooking it for a while doing homemaker stuff. I love that it only has 5 grams of carbs, so no fear of blood sugar overload. The 9 grams of protein is also a plus, because it will keep you full longer and help with muscle recovery if you’re working out.
So what do you think? Will you try Outer Aisle?
