Cauliflower Crust Pizza

Think veggie pizza, and a pie topped with slices and chunks of colorful vegetables comes to mind. But this recipe takes the meat-free version of your favorite fork-free dish a step further. The crust is made from cauliflower, cleverly crushed to bits and blended with the perfect ingredients to create a crispy-chewy base that’s lighter and more nutritious than bread-dough versions. Top with sauce, more veggies and a sprinkling of nutritional yeast, and you won’t think twice about the missing cheese or meat.
