Crispy, savory and spicy, this is a totally crave-able snack!
Pizza. Breakfast, lunch, dinner or snack—there’s no wrong time to enjoy one of our favorite foods. It is a versatile food that you can enjoy for a full meal, share with friends for smaller portions, or even enjoy a slice as a snack.
And, with the help of Dare to Be Different, pizza can even be a delicious option during Passover.
Ready for the good news? Pizza is a lot healthier than most people realize. It seems a little wacky, but a slice of pizza can be a great way to start a day. Pizza can be a more complete breakfast than many American breakfast foods, thanks to the protein, calcium, fat, and fiber content of pizza crust and pizza toppings. Food researchers agree that homemade pizza can be a great source of nutrients when it is consumed earlier in the day.
So, gather the family and warm up the pizza oven!
Too many carbs is the biggest reason to avoid most pizza if you’re looking to eat healthy. You need carbohydrates in your diet, but too many can lead to excess weight gain and sluggishness. Most store bought or restaurant pizzas are high in carbs, fat and salt compared to the other nutrients.
We’re changing that with our Dare to Be Different Cauliflower Crusts. These frozen crusts, made from a cauliflower base, contain only 4g of carbs and zero added sugars. Not to mention—with only five ingredients, our cauliflower crusts are gluten-free and kosher-friendly.
By switching out your standard frozen crust for a cauliflower crust, you’re automatically increasing the nutritional value of your pizza. You can then stack up the crusts with your favorite healthy ingredients, like peppers, chickpeas and more.
Stand Out with Spicy Sriracha
There’s many ways to spice up your weekly pizza night, but for this recipe the secret star of the show is a healthy helping of sriracha sauce. Mixing sriracha with mayonnaise takes this pizza sauce from bland to savory in an instant. The inclusion of mayo helds the sriracha spread better and prevents the heat from overwhelming the dish. All ages will enjoy the flavor of the spicy mayo without breaking a sweat.
But, where did sriracha come from before it ended up in every grocery store, on every restaurant table and now on your pizza? Vietnamese immigrant David Tran first began selling sriracha sauce out of his blue Chevy fan in 1975, inspired by a recipe from his village. The “secret sauce” grew in popularity and now generates over $80 million dollars in revenue per year.
Dare to Be Different is continuing the tradition of international cooking that brings people together across cultures with our spicy twist on a traditional veggie pizza. Check out the full recipe below!
