Tasty Cauliflower Pizza Crust Recipe
Hi friends! It's been awhile. I've missed you!
Yes, I'm still here in San Sebastian, Spain! Yes, I'm doing great, thank you for asking! No, no, don't mistake my silence on the bloggosphere for not doing well. I'm doing really really well, more than well! Oh and yes, I sure still love cooking and eating. In fact, these past 5 months in Spain have been just what the doctor ordered for an exhausted college graduate.
Anyways, I've been cleaning up the cobwebs here to give the Spice Girl a new look - I hope you like it! And what's a new look without new food? Exactly, pointless. So enough about new looks and more about this cauliflower pizza crust recipe.
This cauliflower pizza was delicious. The crust was just crunchy and firm enough to support all of the heavy toppings without being well, hard and unappetizing.
You might be thinking, why put cauliflower in a pizza crust? I always like sneaking in fruits in vegetables to foods that normally don't contain them. Sure, I could eat a cup of roasted cauliflower florets no problem, but sometimes you gotta change it up. And the result? A pizza crust that now has more vitamins and nutrients.
This recipe is not gluten-free, but don't fear! There's plenty of recipes out there for gluten-free cauliflower pizza crusts!
