Skip the unhealthy crust and jump onto the cauliflower pizza craze. This combination of mozzarella cheese, Parmesan cheese, marinara sauce and basil will remind you of the pizza you ate growing up and make you forget that the crust is made out of cauliflower. Plus, you get to avoid all the processed ingredients found in most pizza crust.
This is what the curst looks like before you cook it.
Seriously though, drool at this combination of toppings, cheese and spices.
