Who has a favorite food that you mostly avoid because it’s not so healthy (I know I do!)? Pizza is probably top of many people’s list – a slice eaten on the street, a fancy wood-burning oven pizza, and anything in between. We all know it’s best to keep pizza to a minimum to avoid those refined carbs. This is not news, but refined carbs break down quickly into sugars and can contribute to inflammation, fatigue, depression, obesity, poor immune function, and many other health issues. So you’re probably wondering, “If I’m avoiding refined carbs, how do I get my pizza fix?”

The trick is to create a healthier option and you won’t feel deprived! Have you tried cauliflower pizza crust? It might not seem like it will satisfy, but it’s actually delicious.

This Cauliflower Crust Pizza recipe from Detoxinista is simple and created with whole food ingredients. Cook the crust thoroughly before adding all the delicious toppings that you can think of – mushrooms, jalapeños, goat cheese… anything you want.
