This is one of my favorite healthy recipes because it is so delicious and a great healthier version of many people's favorite food--pizza! Change up the toppings to whatever tickles your fancy. This was my first attempt at making this crust that everyone keeps talking about. This veggie-powered pizza needs to make its way to your kitchen asap. Literally takes away the craving for pizza. And, if you're intolerant gluten lime myself, you're going to love this. I seriously can't tell you the last time I had a slice of pizza... it's been like eight years. the crust is made up of freshly grated cauliflower that you can fold up just like traditional pizza. The recipe only called for grape tomatoes and fresh basil, but I decided to add fresh mozzarella, roasted garlic, and pepperoni. At less than 250 calories for half the pie, this is a pizza recipe you can enjoy sans guilt.
