IMG_0351[2]Isn’t pizza one of America’s favorite foods? My family loves pizza, and we traditionally had pizza as a meal at least once a week as our three children were growing up.

Since then, my husband was diagnosed with diabetes and our eating habits have had to change.  Traditional pizza has a lot of carbs in the crust, which means we haven’t been able to enjoy it for a very long time. Someone at church mentioned that a friend had a recipe for cauliflower crust for pizza, and I was intrigued. We have cut out wheat, potatoes and rice in our diet, so this is perfect. My husband isn’t crazy about cauliflower, but he ate this crust and loved it. He said this is his favorite way to eat cauliflower. I’m happy that we can finally enjoy a favorite food in a new and healthier way.

I usually use an entire head of cauliflower and double the other ingredients to make a larger pizza. If I double the recipe, it makes a 16” pizza.
