Cali’flour Foods cauliflower crust can always use the help of some flavorful toppings to complement its light and chewy texture. We tried a few different combinations and finally found the best match: feta cheese and pepperoni. These two toppings provide the perfect balance of saltiness and chewiness on Cali’flour Foods veggie-flavored crust.
Cauliflower pizza crusts can be a little bland on their own, so it’s important to top them with flavorful toppings. Some cauliflower crusts’ taste and texture are more generic and you can top them with anything you desire, but some others, such as Cali’flour Foods, will need a matching combination to balance out the veggie flavor.
Feta cheese and pepperoni combination is a perfect match for Cali’flour Foods crust because they provide the perfect balance of saltiness and chewiness. The feta cheese also adds a nice creaminess to the pizza that takes it over the top.
Still, regardless of the toppings, nothing will save the pizza if the baked crust is not in its best shape. The most crucial step in preparing the pizza will always be the crust’s baking.

Cali’flour Foods Cauliflower Pizza Crust Baking Instructions
Cali’flour Foods has two preparation options for its crusts: One is for using a vented pan and the second is for baking it using a baking sheet.
The baking instructions recommend using a vented pan but claim that a baking sheet will be okay too.
Here are Cali’flour Foods instructions for both methods:
1-Preheat oven to 400°F
2-Place frozen crust on a vented pan coated with cooking spray (Do NOT place crust directly on oven rack or a pizza stone)
3-Bake for 10-12 minutes on the bottom rack. Let cool for 10 minutes before topping (this is key for the crust to crisp up)
4-Top lightly and broil for 1-2 minutes.
1-Preheat oven to 400°F
2-Place frozen crust on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper (Do NOT place crust directly on oven rack or a pizza stone).
3- Bake for 10-12 minutes on the bottom rack. Let cool for 10 minutes before topping (this is key for the crust to crisp up)
4-Top lightly and broil for 1-2 minutes. ENJOY!
Our Baking Tips
The baking recommendations made by Cali’flour Foods are pretty on point with the exception of two things: (1) the use of a baking sheet and (2) the 10 minutes cool down after initial baking.
On the first item, we found that placing cauliflower pizza crusts on baking sheets eliminates airflow to the bottom of the crust, and therefore, the crusts don’t get crispy. Using a vented pan or baking racks helps the crusts cook evenly and come out nice and crispy.
So, if possible, always use a vented pan or rack to allow airflow to the bottom of your crusts.
As for the second issue- the 10 minutes cool down after initial baking- we found that you can add 2-3 more minutes to the cooldown and that helps the crusts to crisp up even more.
Other than these two issues, Cali’flour Foods’ baking instructions are solid.
So, enjoy your Feta Cheese and Pepperoni Pizza!
