Either you are on a low-carb diet, Paleo diet or have gluten intolerance, well this pizza recipe is gonna be a life saver for you!
The pizza crust is made using not flour, not almond meal, not dry coconut BUT…cauliflower! Yes!

The cauliflower is pulsed into a food processor until it resemble rice, then it is cooked and mixed up with a bunch of herbs and other ingredients to give it the extra flavor it needs. Then it is baked, topped and enjoyed!

I made this “pizza” for myself a few weekends ago and also taught a class last Sunday.

Cut florets out of cauliflower head

Wash and dry. Blend in a food processor until it looks like rice.

Move to a bowl, cover with plastic wrap and microwave for 6 min, stir and microwave for 6 more minutes. Let is cool down. Using cheesecloth squeeze out all water. Get it all out!

Mix the cauliflower with all the remaining ingredients
