My 1st Cauliflower Pizza experience at Pienezza in Kissimmee, FL

So it's happened. Time has caught up with me.  As I push 50 years of age, check ups at the doctor have revealed I need to get my health in check.  I'm the kind of guy that likes to grab the bull by the horns and correct problems as quickly as possible.  After a consult with my physician last month, I've totally changed my eating habits. Surprisingly, it's not something that I mind at all.  I love all kinds of fruit and vegetables, as I grew up eating incredibly healthy thanks to my Mother.  However, one thing stuck in the back of my mind that worried me.

What the heck was I going to do about my love for pizza in regards to eating healthy? Well, I had been hearing people sing the Praises of cauliflower crust pizza for several years now. With gluten allergies and the diabetes on the rise across the nation, it's an option many people have switched to. For some reason however, I put off trying cauliflower pizza.  Quite honestly, it just seemed kind of sacrilegious to make a pizza without flour. However, my health is very important to me, and I decided to give it a try.

Pienezza Pizzeria is located at 'The Loop' shopping center in Kissimmee. I've been following them on Instagram for the last year, often commenting on their delicious looking pizzas and other food items they would regularly post.  Now, I've finally made it over to their side of town to try their fare.  I was good and ready to sink my teeth into some pizza, as I hadn't eaten any in over a month.  (Cruel and terrible torture I must say)

Pienezza's 'Hey Brooklyn' Personal Pizza
Pepperoni, sausage, peppers, onions, mushrooms, garlic and extra cheese.

I ordered up Pienezza's ten inch personal pizza, and was blown away.  The crust looked similar to a rolled thin crust, or even flatbread crust with no rise to it.   It charred quite nicely and consistently, and much to my surprise.. tasted and felt like an honest to goodness pizza crust!

Gluten Free Pizza

Up and above the impressive cauliflower crust, the rest of the pie was equally as impressive.  The vegetables tasted fresh and savory.  The meats were flavorsome, the cheese was of high quality, and the sauce was neither too bold or bland, which served as the perfect blanket of tanginess that helped bring balance to the entire palette.

If the euphoria of the great tasting pie was grand enough.. it suddenly dawned on me that this was the least amount of carbs I had ever consumed in regards to a pizza!  This makes me happy to no end, and I will definitely be finding/making excuses to make it over to Pienezza's side of town more often to try more of their amazing creations.

Pienezza indeed has an incredible gluten free cauliflower crust, but they offer vegan options that I'm curious to investigate as well.  I haven't even mentioned their appetizers, sandwiches, salads and desserts! Take a peak at what they have to offer at Pienezza online
