The first time I heard of the idea of making a pizza crust out of cauliflower, I laughed out loud and thought that LCHF had taken it all a bit too far! As if that was ever going to get anywhere near pizza! When I found out I was intolerant to gluten, I was forced to come up with an alternative to pizza and I decided to give the cauliflower pizza a chance. And I was so surprised how tasty it was!
Since then, I’ve made it hundred of times. It’s delicious for pizza night and it even tastes great cold the next day. My kids love it and often have it in their school lunch boxes.
