Earlier in the year, the fast casual pizza chain Pie Five introduced a low carb, gluten-free cauliflower crust.
The crust was going to only be available for a limited time, but after a widly successful debut, the brand has decided to make it a permanent item on its menu.
"Cauliflower is exploding in popularity due to its taste and amazing health benefits," said Christina Coy, Vice President of Marketing for Pie Five Pizza Co in press release from when the crust launched. "We were inspired to incorporate this versatile veggie to create a healthier crust that is still super delicious. Now, with the debut of our cauliflower crust, health conscious guests don't have to cut pizza out of their diet."
