Cauliflower Pizza

Who doesn’t love pizza, right?  When it’s pizza night in my house, and my kids are enjoying a hot, cheesy pizza, I definitely don’t feel like I’m missing out with this Paleo-inspired version. It’s healthy, wholesome and just as delicious. Plus, my variation is easy to make because you don’t have to steam the cauliflower, which can be time-consuming and messy. It’s the perfect recipe when you want to fulfill that pizza crave without the calories!  MmmIMG_2090
