Cauliflower Crust Pizza with spinach basil pesto, sundried tomatoes and goat cheese toppings




          Cauliflower crust pizza is a quick pizza that doesn't need any flour. The crust is made of finely minced cauliflower with egg, salt, herbs and cheese. Cauliflower is an excellent source of Vitamin C and K. It is higher in dietary fiber and rich with omega 3 fatty acids. Along with regular tomato marinara sauce we also add some fresh spinach basil pesto. Sundries tomatoes and goat cheese make this more delicious. This is a great substitute for people who cannot eat flour crust pizza due to gluten problems.
