Eating healthier and eliminating gluten can be a challenge. I know!

Finding alternative recipes and foods for the food items you love isn’t always easy.

While I will never say that cauliflower pizza crust is amazingly delicious {I’m from Chicago – in my mind, pizza should all be deep-dish and eaten with a fork and knife!} it is a good, healthy alternative when you are craving pizza but wanting to be more mindful.

Very little is needed to make homemade pizza crust! I prefer to use riced cauliflower rather than a head of cauliflower that you steam and then cut into really small pieces.

Start by defrosting the bags of riced cauliflower. Place in a mesh strainer and drain any water

It may be necessary to hold small amounts of cauliflower in your hand and squeeze tightly to drain any excess water. Use a cheesecloth to be more graceful 🙂

Fig & Arugula Pizza

I had a craving for a sweet and savory pizza – odd, I know. But figs and arugula {usually with goat cheese} is seriously amazing! I had all of the ingredients on hand – but opted to use vegan mozzarella cheese instead of goat cheese.
