    Low Carb Cauliflower Pizza {GF}

    Howdy all!

    Have I got the most amazing, mouthwatering and Bikini-friendly pizza for you! and it’s gluten free. And delicious. And real.

    don’t believe me?

    Try it for yourself and see.

    What I love about this pizza is that it’s basically guilt free to eat. I mean you still ingest the tomato sauce, cheeses (or vegan cheeses) and other additions other than just cauliflower, but all in all it’s still made mostly of vegetables (AKA the cauliflower) so you shouldn’t feel bad if you end up eating half of the pizza 🙂

    there are a lot of cauliflower pizza recipes out there (it has become a huge trend, naturally), but mine is slightly different. First, although I did use dairy cheeses, you can easily swipe them for a vegan alternative. My base is eggless (unlike most  variations) and what firms it up is the addition of polenta and corn meal to the cauliflower dough.

    So whether you’re a vegan, vegetarian or a carnivore, you can adjust this basic pizza to your liking.
