I am often asked about healthy options at restaurants. While it’s not a big focus for me, I’m not against giving new dishes a try from the recommendation I receive. One of the latest suggestions received that seems to be all the rave is the new cauliflower pizza crust option at Il Vicino. For an additional $3, you can opt for this keto friendly, gluten free cauliflower pizza crust.
I stopped by for lunch with some friends recently. We ordered the #3 Motorino (Alfredo sauce, spinach, artichoke hearts, oven roasted tomatoes, balsamic onions, pesto drizzle) and #13 Bianca (Capocollo ham, spicy oil, mozzarella, gorgonzola, blended goat cheese, portobello mushrooms, caramelized onions, tomatoes, fresh rosemary) with the cauliflower crust.
It came out quick courtesy of their wood oven and the pizza didn’t miss a beat. First bite in, I remember saying “This is actually delicious!”. Admittedly I was a little hesitant given my past experience with “healthier pizza crusts”. This one was light and flavorful with a slight crisp to it. It wasn’t dense, thick and dry like some of the other gluten free crust around town. We were all fans and this is something I could recommend to those people needing a gluten free option.
