Cauliflower Crust Pizza

Cauliflower 1I used to think cauliflower was a bland and boring vegetable. That was until a couple years when I read this article, “The Secret Life of Cauliflower”  and everything changed. From cauliflower rice, cauliflower mash to cauliflower pizza base, I am amazed at the flexibility and versatility of this vegetable. I first ventured out and tried a curry served over cauliflower fried rice. It’s amazing how easy it is to trick your brain into thinking shredded, fried cauliflower is in fact rice. Cauliflower rice & mash have become regulars in our house. (I’ll post more on these recipes later.)

This weekend I was craving pizza. Really bad. So I thought I would give Cauliflower pizza base a try. I was pleasantly surprised at how easy it was to do and how yummy it turned out. With Cauliflower pizza base,  there is no tricking your brain that it’s bread. It’s a completely different texture. That being said, it was delicious and entirely guilt free. We will definitely be making this again.
