Ulu is the Hawai'ian name for breadfruit. Ulu is a fruit that is rich in starch, like potatoes, yet sweetens in flavor when it ripens as the starches convert to natural fruit sugar. Best ripeness for this recipe is post-harvest when the cantaloupe-size fruit is tender to the touch. This pizza crust is a delicious alternative to gluten, flour recipes, and still holds its own with this Native New Yorker!
