It is hard to deny the tantalizing appeal of pizza. With a filling bread base, tomato sauce layer and wide variety of toppings to choose from, it’s no wonder this Italian invention has captured the heart of America. Unfortunately for our waistlines, we have made a few adjustments. What was once hand-tossed, freshly baked, thin crust topped with pesto and dollops of mozzarella has become mass-produced, deep-dish, four-cheese, meat lover’s delight. At least, that’s the pie that catches my eye!
Toning your pizza down to a traditional Italian recipe would make a huge difference, but you can even go further. Introducing cauliflower crusted pizza! It’s pizza, without the guilt. This gluten-free alternative pizza crust is the perfect way to satisfy your cravings while still meeting your personal health goals.
Tip: If you’d like a crunchier crust, squeeze the moisture from your cauliflower with a cheesecloth.
