A few years ago, the idea of Costco being the place to get trendy, healthy foods might have seemed a little bit—well, bizarre. The wholesale retailer has always been synonymous with affordability and staples-in-bulk for your home, like a month’s supply of toilet paper. But as of late, the warehouse superstore has begun expanding into affordable, healthy, and wellness-enhancing offerings, like organic produce and clean beauty products. The retailer’s latest play in the game? Carving out its territory in the cauliflower-pizza craze.
Costco now sells two frozen varieties of gluten-free cauliflower pizza from Milton’s Craft Bakers, according to PopSugar: Margherita four cheese and roasted vegetable. Each $14 box includes two pies, making it a pretty affordable meal option—especially when you consider that one serving is a quarter of the crusty circle, so you can count on leftovers. As for nutritional value, one serving ranges (depending on the type) between 230 and 250 calories, 8 to 11 grams of fat, and 12 to 14 grams of protein.
Pizza, like ice cream, has a bad reputation for being an indulgence rather than a healthy food, but with cauliflower pizza, you’re consuming a cruciferous vegetable that’s high in fiber, low in calories, and gluten-free. And you can always pair your cauliflower pie with an totally delicious salad for another nutritional boost.
