There's been so much buzz around cauliflower crust pizza so I wanted to take my own stab at it. You guys know how simple I am in the kitchen, so I ordered this cauliflower crust version on Amazon. I know some people like to make it homemade, which is definitely a more cost effective option, but this saves you time and hassle in the kitchen. From start to finish, both pizzas featured below took 25 minutes.
My consensus? To fill your pizza craving, this is a great healthy alternative that was absolutely delicious. I made both a classic margherita and mushroom pesto. Ingredients and process below. Let me know what you think, and also what your favorite pizza toppings are that I should try next!
