Cauliflower power
Local startup going national with unique pizza crust

 A new kind of pizza crust is catching the attention of foodies in New Hampshire and beyond. It’s called One Crust, and while it looks like regular flatbread pizza on the plate, the “bread” is cauliflower.  

The gluten-free, vegan and paleo-friendly cauliflower crust was developed by Sonia Farris and Kasia Lojko of the Derry-based meal delivery startup All Real Meal. For several months it’s been available to All Real Meal customers for home delivery in select locations, and it is one of the most popular items on the menu. Now Farris and Lojko are looking to take One Crust past southern New Hampshire to make it the first All Real Meal product available to the national market. 
“When we started thinking about what to bring to the [national] market, we knew we wanted to zero in on something that everyone could eat,” Farris said. “We named it One Crust because it’s one thing that, regardless of someone’s diet — paleo, vegan, gluten-free or no limitations — it could appeal to them.” 
With cauliflower as its base, One Crust uses only six other ingredients: flax, chia, almonds, coconut flour, olive oil and a seasoning blend. For health-conscious pizza-lovers, it’s an ideal alternative; it has just four carbs, 207 calories and is packed with Omega 3’s, phytonutrients, plant-based protein and fiber, while the consistency and taste remain similar to a regular flatbread pizza. 
“It’s very nutrient-dense and filling. You feel nourished when you have it,” Farris said. “It’s so good for people who want to fill that pizza craving, because it’s very difficult to have pizza with low carbs, but this crust is actually good for you.” 
One Crust is packaged in a round, oven-ready tray lined with a thin parchment-like paper that gives the crust a crispiness once it’s baked. The sauce, cheese and other toppings are up to the customer, and Lojko said that versatility is one of the main qualities that make One Crust so popular. 
“When they get [the crust], a lot of people send us pictures and are excited to show us what they made with it,” she said. “It’s a blank canvas for their creativity.” 
On Nov. 17, self-funded startup launched a 60-day campaign on the crowdfunding website Indiegogo.com, with pre-order packages for sale to help get the national launch of One Crust off the ground. 
“Long term, we’re looking to get into grocery stores, but it starts with getting it from the kitchen to homes and making sure that people can get it all over the country,” Lojko said.
