Low Carb Cauliflower Pizza

Low carb cauliflower pizzaCauliflower Pizza is one we’ve had on our list to try for ages and we finally made it recently. It’s a much healthier option than regular pizza and was surprisingly good. Also not difficult at all especially if you have a blender – we do and we use it most days. (A tip someone gave me was to leave it on your kitchen counter – that way you are more likely to use it). This recipe is based on this Cauliflower Pizza from Popsugar, You can leave out the cheese if you need to make a dairy free version and it still works well. Just top with your favorite toppings.
