The Trader Joe’s Cauliflower Pizza Hack You Need

Not Your Average Pizza

Get ready for a major upgrade to your pizza game. This Trader Joe’s cauliflower gnocchi pizza bake is seriously next level, and so healthy! If you’re looking for a low-calorie, healthy alternative to pizza that has no compromise on amazing taste and flavor, this is your recipe.

Perfect for feeding kids, boyfriends, or any picky eaters. This is a great dish to make as an easy dinner for one (the leftovers taste just as amazing!!) or for a friends night in.

No Gluten, No Problem

This is also such a game-changer for all my gluten-free babies. Sometimes cauliflower crust just doesn’t do it, it’s too thin dry, or just completely falls apart. This is NOT that.

This pizza bake literally tastes like a warm, cheesy, hot pocket pizza. Honestly what more could you want?


  • Trader Joe’s Cauliflower Gnocchi (you’ll need about a bag and a half)
  • Frozen Mixed Vegetables of choice (I recommend the greens mix from Trader Joe’s)
  • Marinara Sauce
  • Trader Joe’s Spicy Italian Bomba Peppers (if you want spicy marinara)
  • Cheese of choice (Violife Vegan Mozzarella is SO good)
  • Olive Oil
  • Italian seasoning


~Start with a greased pan and add a layer of cauliflower gnocchi (straight from the freezer).

~Drizzle some olive oil and Italian seasoning over the gnocchi and stir until all the gnocchi is completely covered.

~Once the gnocchi is covered and spread out in an even layer on the bottom of the pan, add a layer of frozen vegetables.

~Bake at 430°F for 22 minutes.

~Once time is up, take the pizza bake out of the oven and spread a cup of marinara in an even layer over the gnocchi and veggies.

~For a spicy red sauce, add 2 tsp of Italian Bomba Hot Peppers to the marinara – it’s SO good!

~Last layer, best layer!

~Add your cheese of choice over the marinara sauce in an even layer.

~Bake for another 15 minutes at 430° F.

That’s It!

This pizza bake is SO simple and it’s such a tasty dish. Make sure you let your gnocchi pizza bake cool for a bit before digging in. It’s so hard to wait, but trust me- you do not want to burn your mouth on this! Tag me on Instagram if you make this- I want to drool over your yummy pizza bake!

Ok, signing off- gonna go eat a whole pan of this!
