Cauliflower PIZZA Crust!

This recipe is FANTASTIC! You’ll definitely know that it’s not a bread-based crust but you won’t be disappointed in the flavor. The slightly nutty flavor of the roasted cauliflower is delicious! And you certainly can’t beat the added punch of nutrition for the cauliflower.

  • It’s loaded with B vitamins, contains omega-3 fatty acids, and is even a good source of vitamin C and manganese.
  • It’s full of antioxidants which help to ward off heart disease and cancers, especially bladder, breast, colon, prostate, and ovarian cancers.
  • It contains enzymes which boost the liver’s ability to remove toxins from our bodies.
  • It’s got tons of fiber to aid in digestion as well as a substance called glucoraphin which protect your stomach from ulcers.
