Recipe: Cauliflower Crust Pizza

I love pizza. I could probably eat it every day (but try to keep it to twice/month). So when I have the opportunity to mimic pizza and keep on the healthy side of things, I’m all in.

 

I tried to make cauliflower crust pizza once before using a small cheese grater…and it was a tedious process.

This time I tweaked the recipe and used our Vitamix blender to grate the cauliflower. Voila! It took so much less time.

 

Without further ado, I give you….cauliflower crust pizza.
