I was craving pizza all day today, and even though it is my “cheat day” I didn’t want to blow all the work I have done this week by ordering a pizza, so I decided to make one. I remembered seeing a recipe on a blog or Pinterest for pizza with a cauliflower crust and decided to give it a shot.

A quick google search brought me to several recipes. I picked one that looked pretty good, modified it a bit, and it turned out great! It has a different consistency than I am used to, but I really enjoyed it. Sorry pizza fans, you can’t pick this up by the slice and eat it, you are going to have to use a fork and plate. It’s worth it though!

This recipe serves three people.
