I came across this recipe for a gluten free pizza crust made with cauliflower and I had to give it a try. I love pizza but I can't have it because I have celiac disease and I can't have any type of gluten. The photograph to the left is my first attempt at making this pizza.

I used this blog post from DAMY Health as a guide and came up with my own variation of the recipe. You can taste the cauliflower flavor (which I love) but it still tastes just like pizza – cheesy and delicious. The edges of the crust even get a little crunchy like regular pizza does. So yes, pizza CAN BE healthy! If you cut this crust into 8 slices, each piece of crust (without toppings) has only 50 calories, 2 carbs and 5 grams of protein! There’s no need to feel guilty about eating a few slices, and most of all it's gluten free. 

You can top the pizza with whatever your heart desires, just make sure the toppings are already cooked since you’ll only be broiling the pizza for a few minutes. As pictured above, I made a Hawaiian Style pizza with Canadian Bacon and Pineapple, (my favorite).  Also keep in mind that the cauliflower crust isn’t quite as hearty as most regular dough-based crusts so you don’t want to weigh it down with a ton of ingredients. Keep it simple. (click read more to get the recipe)
